day 2 in the Holy Land again

The photo in the previous post is actually from the other side of the building, the Muslim side. In the back, you can see the little grill that is the window on the Jewish side. The Muslim side is a beautiful, big mosque. Beside Abraham's tomb stands a matching tomb, that of Sarah. In the centre of the mosque, there is the tomb of Isaac and on another side stands Jacob's tomb. These three cause a concern, no doubt. Muslims claim descent from Abraham and HAGAR (not Sarah) and her son ISHMAEL, (not Isaac) and of course the other name for Jacob is no other than ISRAEL, the father of the Jews. Surely, the Jews are not happy that these three tombs are not only in Muslim-only territory but are not even visible from the Jewish side of the building.
