Palestinian vandals ripped off a Mezuzah, a Jewish artifact, which was affixed to the main entrance at the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron on Friday, while the holy site was open solely for Muslims in honor of the Muslim month of Ramadan.

For years, the Islamic Waqf has worked, unchallenged, to destroy historical evidence of the two Jewish Temples on the Temple Mount and build other structures. Now, Israel has ordered a halt to construction out of fear the process would damage the Western Wall.
