The historic beauty and importance of the Ibrahimi Mosque was tainted when radical settlers of the Kiryat Arba kibbutz, set upon the mosque in during the Friday prayers in February 25th, 1994. Dr, Benjamin Goldstein, alias Barukh Goldstein, an American Jew, born and educated in New York, led the attack upon hundreds of innocents in prayer. Men, women, and children were attacked and fatally wounded or killed whilst concentrating upon their subservience to God. When Barukh Goldstein entered, along with other settlers from the kibbutz, they proceeded to fire high velocity machine guns upon the backs of the kneeling persons in prayer. Over 300 persons were wounded and 48 dead on site of this horrid massacre. Israeli Occupation Authorities closed the mosque after the massacre but until now the settlers have not been punished and suicide bombings near the settlement began, born out of despair.
