I feel that this article and many of the commenters are denying the Jewish people’s right to define what is special to them or holy to their religion.
Zionists claim ad nauseum that Palestinians have no inherent connection to Palestine/Levant and that their claimed religious connection to Jerusalem, Hebron, etc are fictitious and political inventions. We know this is false and deeply offensive. The above is simply the flip side of it applied to Israelis.
The Tomb of Joseph, whether real or not, is holy to the Jewish people. The Al-Aqsa Mosque, whether real or not, is holy to the Palestinian people.
We do not gain anything by denying another people’s religious beliefs, but rather should focus exclusively on human rights and ending crimes against humanity rather than devolve into “my god can beat up your god”.
