The Palestinian Authority’s Ministry of Local Authorities issued plans to construct dozens of dwelling units near the old Yehoshua altar on Har Eival in Samaria, which is a heinous act of chutzpah.
The Forum for Struggle Over Every Dunam, which works to stop unlawful Palestinian growth in Area C under Israeli control and other areas in Judea and Samaria, made the records public.
The ancient location was found in 1980 by Professor Adam Zartal and dated back to Yehoshua, who brought the Jewish people into the land of Israel more than 3,300 years ago.
In agreement with the descriptions in the Torah and the book of Yehoshua, the kosher animal remains and ancient Hebrew writing discovered close to the altar attest to it being a former Jewish worship site.
Israel’s government has been hesitant to respond to the destruction of historical artifacts that prove the thousands of years of Jewish history in Israel, and the Palestinians have made it their mission to attempt and destroy such artifacts.
Yossi Dagan, the head of the Samaria Regional Council, is now calling for action in response to the disclosure.
“This exhibits the height of chutzpah. It’s so incredibly bold. I urge the administration to step in and put an immediate stop to this scandal,” Dagan stated. Yehoshua’s Altar is a location with historical significance because it is one of the only artifacts from when the Children of Israel initially inhabited the Land.
This crime should be blamed on the Israeli government and any person who can stop it but isn’t, but not the bloodthirsty Palestinian Authority, whose objectives are well known.
He continued that history would harshly punish those who neglected Israel’s historical sites.
“The government must use its power and obligation under international agreements to save this historic property. It must impose restrictions on development, order the site’s closure, and formally designate the entire region as a national cultural monument.
He emphasized that the PA, which has one goal: removing all evidence of the Jewish People’s connection to the area, filled the gap left by the previous administrations’ acts.
