The Kotel (Western Wall) In Jerusalem Defaced With Graffiti, “Slaughter The J**s” In Arabic

The Kotel, known in English as the Western or Wailing Wall was defaced over the weekend with an anti-Semitic message written in red paint. Written in Arabic, the message was clear “Slaughter the Jews” on a section of the Kotel known as  HaKotel HaKatan, or the little Wall. Eventually, the message was covered up with more red paint.

The Little Western wall, HaKotel HaKatan is a small portion of the Western Wall of the Temple Mount. located about 220 yards north of the Western Wall Plaza the most famous part of the Kotel. It is considered particularly sacred by Jews because it is the second closest spot one could get to where the “Holy of Holies” stood in the Second Temple (the closest spot is inside the Western Wall tunnels). It is the closest spot one can go and pray at any time of any day.

Perhaps as motivation for the defacing of the site, Saturday was the 17th of Tamuz, the anniversary of when the Romans breached the walls of Jerusalem as they conquered the Holy City from the Jews. It begins a three-week mourning period leading up to Tisha B’Av, the 9th day of the Jewish month of Av which is the date both holy temples were destroyed. It was also believed to be the day Moses broke the first two tablets of stone on Mount Sinai containing the Ten Commandments.

According to Israel 0404, two Arab girls, both minors, are suspected of defacing the holy site, and their mother is being questioned by the police.

Jerusalem City Council member Aryeh King has called for an immediate investigation into the incident.

“I call on Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan to demand that police conduct a comprehensive, thorough investigation since access to the Western Wall is covered by the security cameras of the Jerusalem District Police,”

Rabbi Ben Packer, director of Jerusalem Heritage House, who took the video below, wrote on his Facebook page that the Israeli authorities haven’t taken care of the HaKotel HaKatan 

An Arab girl has been arrested for this, but is it really her fault? The place looks like a dump. There is a trash can and trash everywhere. There is nothing signifying in any way that this is a Jewish holy site. There is no guard/attendant? The real culprits? Chief Rabbi of the Western Wall, Mayor of Jerusalem, Knesset, etc. I’d let the girl go and FIX THE SITUATION THERE PERMANENTLY!!!

Below is a video of police trying to remove the graffiti.

Typical Israeli police competence
