You are correct: al-Khalil (Hevron) is Judaism's second most holy site because the Patriarch Ibrahim (Abraham) is buried there. However, that fact in and of itself does not give Jews any property rights over the town. Al-Khalil is now and has always been Arabic. Do please remember that Ishmael was the first-born of Ibrahim's sons and, as such, received his father's blessing reserved for the first-born son. As well, of course, Jews have always been a sparse and sporadic population of al-Khalil; from 1942-1968, for example, there was zero Jewish population there. So, to all you zionists there, with your thieving and expansionist mitts: Keep those mitts off al-Khalil, lest you lose any and all visiting privileges to Machpelah.
