    BETHLEHEM, West Bank, Sept 9 (Reuters) - Israeli soldiers blew up a bomb hidden by militants in a Muslim cemetery in Bethlehem on Thursday, prompting an outcry by Palestinians who said the graveyard had been desecrated.

    Israel said the militants were to blame for the damage when troops detonated the bomb concealed in an empty grave. The location is especially sensitive as it is near Rachel's Tomb, a flashpoint West Bank shrine that is one of Judaism's holiest sites.

    "We didn't desecrate a cemetery. We neutralised a bomb," said army spokesman Jacob Dallal.

    But the explosion also destroyed the nearby grave of a 60-year-old Palestinian and rankled the nerves of local people who said the soldiers had violated the sanctity of Bethlehem's only Muslim cemetery.

    The head of Bethlehem's Islamic Waqf, which oversees the cemetery, said even the presence of a bomb would not justify the army's actions and it should have coordinated with Muslim religious authorities. "This is the first time we see the remains of the dead strewn into the open air. It is a violation of Islamic law, a very serious violation," said Waqf chief Nasr Nawfal.

    "Even the entry of an Israeli soldier to the cemetery is forbidden." (Even the existence of terrorist Islamists in Israel is forbidden and a very serious violation of international law.)

    Witnesses said soldiers had found the bomb hidden inside an empty tomb above ground.

    The army said it was too dangerous to remove the bomb to detonate elsewhere. But the explosion destroyed the grave of Mohammed Khalil, who died in 2001 of natural causes. A relative said his family had moved his remains to a new grave far away.

    "It was very painful to see that shameful and appalling scene," said Mustafa Ma'ali, 70.

    The cemetery abuts Rachel's Tomb, which Jews regard as the final resting place of the biblical matriach.

    The site is also sacred to Muslims who say the real Rachel's Tomb is elsewhere and the compound in question contains a revered old mosque, Bilal Bin Rabah, from which they have been barred since Israel captured the West Bank in the 1967 Middle East war.

    Bethlehem is also holy to Christians, who revere it as the birthplace of Jesus.

    Unfortunately Israel has not closed their historical holy sites to Islam as YET. Islam fears that any historical Jewish site, religious or not, proves that this land was and is a land of infidels in the middle of their holy ME sand.

    Islam believes that absolutely nothing happens without the will of the god Allah. So the fact that Israel and the Jewish people exist gives testimony that Allah's will is not absolute. This is what causes Islam so much animosity toward the infidels in their midst.

    Muslim authorities? Those Muslim authorities (Mullahs) are busy trying to destroy all archeological evidence of a Jewish presence in Jerusalem for the past 3 plus eons.

    Can reality be removed or eliminated by breaking artificats buried on the Temple Mount?

    just thought that pretending to listen might be good PR. Can reality be removed by building a wall?

    To listen for pr one must think about what they have heard.

    Reality can be made by building a wall that keeps out suicide children bombers. It seems to have been working except for the areas where the wall building has been halted.

    Can you THINK of any reason why the reality in the death of women, men and babies would be reality if the wall was torn down?
