Worshippers at the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hevron on Wednesday chased away an unwanted guest – Jibril Rajoub, a top Palestinian Authority terrorist.
Rajoub was seen trying to enter the area of the Cave which is reserved for Jewish worship. It is not known why Rajoub was attempting to enter that area of the Cave, as most of the rest of it is reserved for Muslim worshippers.
However, it appears that Rajoub has attempted to pull this same stunt in the past. According to activist Baruch Marzel, “this is not the first time Rajoub has attempted to enter the Cave and that he has been chased away. This is our place of worship and he is not wanted here.”
Rajoub is currently the Palestinian Authority Sports Minister. He has been trying to get Israel banned from FIFA, the international soccer league. FIFA members are set to vote on Rajoub's proposal in the coming weeks. Israeli Soccer Authority chairman Ofer Eini is currently in Switzerland, seeking to prevent such a ban from being implemented.
