"Jews are Judaizing the Samuel's Tomb!"

The Al Aqsa Foundation (the same one that just freaked out over the iKotel iPhone app) is upset that Israel is spending "millions of dollars" to Judaize the site of Samuel's Tomb which, they say, is a mosque.

Just FYI: Samuel is not mentioned once in the Quran (although he is implied in 2:247-8.)

Long-time readers may remember my visit to the site four years ago - right after it was vandalized, and holy objects stolen, by Arabs. So let's hope that part of this money will go towards security.

But I suppose they weren't trying to vandalize it - just to "de-Judaize" it.
