EVIL PORTENT! Boulder Dislodges From Western Wall, Crashes Onto Egalitarian Plaza!
Ancient boulder dislodges from Western Wall, crashes onto egalitarian plaza
A large boulder from the Western Wall was dislodged from the ancient structure on Monday morning, tumbling down onto an egalitarian prayer platform, which was empty at the time. There were no reported injuries in the incident near Robinson’s Arch, south of the main prayer plaza, but the rock landed very close to a female worshiper. Seventy-nine-year-old worshiper Daniella Goldberg told Reuters: “I didn’t hear or feel anything until it landed right at my feet.” The smaller of two platforms designated for mixed-gender prayer there was closed until further notice.“Israel Antiquities Authority officials are dealing with the incident,” said Masorti movement head Yitzhar Hess in a statement posted on Twitter, alongside dramatic footage of the stone coming loose and crashing onto the platform, revealing dirt behind the wall. “This is a wake-up call — we must check the entire Western Wall, both parts, so that heaven forbid there is no disaster in the future,” he added.
