Arutz 7: Terrorists Wound Soldier as Thousands Visit Joseph's Tomb
Over 60 Arabs riot, throw rocks and moderately wound soldier who stood guard over 2,000 Jews visit Biblical grave during Days of Awe.

Ari Yashar, 9/21/2015

An IDF soldier was lightly to moderately wounded on Sunday night by a mob of Arab terrorists, as he took part in guarding a mass visit by Jews to the ancient tomb of the Biblical figure Yosef (Joseph) located in Shechem (Nablus), Samaria. (cont.)

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
"Biblical figure Yosef?"

Seriously? The implication here is either that Yosef was some guy, in some book called the Bible, or might even have been fictional.

I believe that you meant to say "Yosef Ben Ya'aqov Avinu" or "Yosef HaTzadiq."

Please correct this.

Arutz 7 is supposed to be a JEWISH news site.

If you will not listen to Jews, then maybe you will listen to your Christian friends, who should notice this as well.

I wonder if any of these same Christians will be led to think that this was actually the tomb of the Christian mythological figure of the same name.
Typical Arutz 7.
