We went into Hebron armed with a camera to capture the true reality of what is happening in the ancient city. What we found was the true story of Israel.

Entering Hebron near the Jewish quarter is like entering a ghost town. Building after building has been left boarded up and deserted. Even with the sun shining, the mood is dark and dismal. With the exception of a few buildings and some homes, there are very few Jews living in Hebron. In fact, the total population of Jews in Hebron is 3%. That’s it.

The Palestinian media and for the matter, a great deal of the world media would have you believe that Arab terror is a response to the formation of Israel in 1948. But a look into the history of Hebron shows that the terror started long before 1948. It has nothing to do with “settlements” and “Zionism”. It has to do with pure bloody, anti-Semitism. It has to do with the hatred of Jews and the claiming of stolen land by Arabs, not Jews.

What you’ll see in this photo gallery is that the Jewish connection to the land goes back over 3500 years when Abraham, Isaac and Jacob walked the land. Abraham is the one who purchased the Cave of the Patriarchs. And the history doesn’t end there. You’ll see homes and the location of an ancient wine press, all used during the time of the first Jewish Temple. You’ll also see the ruins of a fortress that was used by King David himself. And then you’ll see where the Jews lived before mass slaughters and too much spilled blood.

Welcome to the remains of Jewish Hebron.

One last, very important thing. During our tour, we were told that the graveyard one encounters near the Cave of the Patriarchs is filled with empty graves. The Arabs placed them there to create a false sense of historical relevance. The proof? While we looked at the cemetery, we saw an Arab man guide a flock of sheep over the graves. The sheep were defecating on the graves! If there were really bodies buried there, would somebody lead his sheep there? If you look closely at this picture, you can see the sheep in the graveyard.
