His Majesty King Abdullah has offered to use his own expenses to pay for the restoration of Jesus’ Tomb in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem.

His Beatitude Theophilos III, Patriarch of the Holy City of Jerusalem and All Palestine and Jordan stated, “His Majesty constantly reiterates that Jerusalem’s Muslim and Christian Holy Sites are a red line, which Jordan will not permit to be crossed. Also, that Jordan continues to uphold its religious and historic responsibilities towards the entirety of Al Haram Al Sharif (the Noble Sanctuary of Jerusalem) with the utmost commitment and seriousness …”

His Beatitude also expressed that King Abdullah’s generosity plants “seeds of love and brotherhood between Muslims and Christians.”

There is an ancient tradition of Muslim leader’s protecting Christians that dates as far back to Muhammed himself.   The Ashtiname of Muhammad is a charter at St. Catherine’s Monastery on Mt. Sinai with the prophet’s hand imprinted as a seal. It mentions the rights and privileges to all Christians “far and near”.
