FEATURE-Researchers dig up controversy in Jerusalem


www.alertnet.org

"JERUSALEM, March 24 (Reuters) - Archaeologists in Jerusalem are competing to unearth artefacts pointing to the ancient city's Jewish past, which are used to justify Israel's claim to all of it as the indivisible capital of the modern Jewish state. But critics say some of "finds" are really just bending science to prove a "Biblical heritage" that is open to dispute."

I must say check out my third additional news link as there is an interesting video that links to this story, i've never been religious, but this interested me alot.

I geuss the great debate here is not only if there is religious artifacts but (in my opinion) even more importantly the argument here is whether leading architects should give up other (again in my own opinion) more important projects to work in Jerusalem,
mind you, when there being paid up to millions of dollars i bet they don't care either way!

Let me know your thoughts x

Not really sure what relevance this has in the modern day.

After all, Edinburgh was founded by Anglo-Saxons from the Kingdom of Northumbria, but you wouldn't ever try to get Scotland to give it back now, would you?

I mean, they did "steal" it when the Vikings invaded northern england, using Israeli logic.

Same could be said for many, many cities and other parcels of land arouind the globe!

Yeahh, i found it quite ironic that it was mainly religious organisations that have funded the archeoligists...if only more people showed passion for their line of work rather than just interest in money.
