    Egypt should not even open its mouth on this. They are busy digging up and finding all kinds of ancient stuff which they value as their heritage. They would not like other people to lay claim to their heritage, would they! There is no doubt about it - the Tomb of the Patriarchs and the Tomb of Rachel belong to the Jews. Arab claim to it is just pure greed, bad-mindedness and an evil attempt to deprive Jews of their heritage and history. Just because they built a mosque on the site thousands of years later does not mean they have first claim to it. The remains of the biblical people in the tombs are Jewish, not Arabic. Egypt can have its heritage but the Jews cannot because the Arabs want to steal it from them? Is thievery an Arab trait or an Islamic one or is it applicable to both? Disgusting.
