Shimon haTsadiq as a place of pilgrimage

Reader comment on item: Obama and Israel, Into the Abyss

Submitted by Elliott A Green (Israel), Jul 28, 2009 at 14:22

The Tomb of Shimon haTsadiq [Aimon the Just] was long a place of Jewish pilgrimage up to the 1947-1949 Israeli War of Independence when the Arabs shut off access with British compliance. This tomb is about 100 meters west of the site formerly owned by the mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin el-Husseini where the US State Dept and British foreign office object to Jews building homes or living. Husseini collaborated in the Holocaust, which used to be common knowledge.
