On an early Friday morning in the month of Ramadan in 1994, a despicable racist criminal thug that goes by the name of Barukh Goldstein murdered 29 Palestinian men and boys who were praying the dawn prayer in the Ibrahimi Mosque in Hebron. This filthy animal, dressed in Israeli soldier's garb, opened fire with the men's backs turned, using hand grenades and a machine gun. It was the beginning of a horrifying day. The honorable IDF had full knowledge of this murderer's actions, as he had to pass through two checkpoints. Furthermore, they were responsible for closing the mosque's doors to prevent anyone from escaping. Protests took to the streets, with the IDF treating them as a battlefield, shooting at will and imposing a curfew on the city. Those who were helping the injured or carrying away the dead were shot at. Those who went to the hospital to donate blood were also shot at. At the end of the day, 60 people were killed. This heinous crime by a radical ibn kalb will never be forgotten. It will always be remembered in the pages of Palestine. To top all of this, the Israeli cabinet announced on Sunday that the Ibrahimi Mosque is now on the list of Israeli Heritage Sites. WTF?
