The Israel Antiquities Authority's peculiar decision not to reconstruct smashed Ottoman tiles in King David's Tomb means the vandals who attacked the site last year managed to erase virtually every remnant of its Muslim past.
A serious act of vandalism, a string of coincidences, and a decision by the Israel Antiquities Authority have combined to change the character of King David’s Tomb on Mt. Zion from a Muslim site into a synagogue.On Tuesday this week, two painters were busy applying the last coats of paint on the building’s doorposts, thereby completing six years of extensive renovations. For the first time since the 16th century, every last trace of the building’s Muslim past has been erased; the site, holy to Judaism, Islam and Christianity, has for all intents and purposes become a synagogue.
