The Destruction of Israeli Ancient History

You have probably read about the lengths that the Jordanian WAQF allows digging on the Temple Mount to depths as deep and thus far back as the First Temple, the Temple which King Solomon, King David’s son, built. The claim is they are digging in order to lay pipes or lay cables. They never lay any pipes or cables; they just smash everything and take it to a rubble pile alongside the Temple Mount (see montage below). There is an entire excavation team which goes through the destroyed rubble just in case something survives. The miracle is that they have found some small remnants including the pomegranate shaped bells from biblical Priestly Robes (see examples in lower picture). Sometimes using a backhoe or bulldozer, you miss the small stuff, thankfully. Then there have been the repeated destruction of Joseph’s tomb in Hebron. The articles cover the destruction of the tomb and other confrontational fronts concerning Israel and a few other places as well. But the Temple Mount and Joseph’s tomb are not the only places threatened with such damage.

We figured that perhaps we might talk about damage being performed by Israeli Arabs who have citizenship and full rights within Israel who live in a village near a site being developed and studied by the Israeli Antiquities Authority (IAA) actively at the current time. This apparently was just a little more than two brothers could take, that proof of the ancient Jews residing so close to their village, how could such be permitted as the Palestinian Arab claim is that there were never Jews residing in these locations. This is just the most recent example and for some reason it just upset me sufficiently as this was also only a few miles from where I live and where I work. An article which alerted us can be read here or just the video of the damage can be viewed here. They apparently had destroyed numerous precious objects and worse they had collapsed underground cavities and uprooted masonry stones. Antiquity thieves are a problem but at least they take care not to destroy precious items as they are seeking exactly such items to sell. There is an active black market for antiquities and it is especially active in the Middle East and specifically in Israel and Egypt as these are where some of the oldest cities and civilizations were located and are the most in demand by collectors. Here in Israel, we are particularly sensitive about these sites as they are our actual and very real history of our families as Judaism is a religion, a people and specifically a family who see Abraham, Isaak and Jacob as our patriarchs and from whom we are all, with a small exception for converts, family. We also treat all the converts and their families as part of our family and accept them just as we would any other Jew.

The above destruction occurred at an antiquity site known as Horvat Devorah is identified in research with the biblical Dovrat, and with Dvora, described as a Jewish village in the Zippori region in the Roman period. But Israel is not the only location where these destructions have taken place. The above picture shows a before and after where magnificent Buddhas of Bamiyan were dynamited by the Taliban. There was the destruction of an entire Roman era city by ISI when they literally knocked down and used explosives to eradicate most of Palmyra. There has been the destruction of countless sites across Iraq and Syria. The reason for some of these and most of the reason behind the destruction of sites within Israel is simply because they are not Islamic and even more of a problem for these individuals is they prove that there were civilizations which came before Islam. Their claim is that if it is not Islamic, then it has no value and thus their erasure is inconsequential. Their other means is to simply claim all of the history as being simply a part of Islamic history. This has brought the claim that Jesus was a Palestinian and they even go beyond the names which are claimed by Judaism claiming that Noah was a Muslim. They also claim Abraham as well as Isaak and Jacob which is strikingly strange since they claim that they were all descended from Ishmael which would make them not related as descendants of Isaak and Jacob, but why invoke logic and reality into this discussion. The reason for the destructions throughout the Middle East and Northern Africa and the absorbing all the prophets from both the New and Old Testaments is simply because Islam was to replace all other religions and convert the world to Islam.


Things almost always get heated when religion is the center of any discussion, but when dealing with Israel, religion becomes central. The reality is Jerusalem has only been the capital city of two civilizations, the original Israelite unifying of the twelve tribes by King David and continuing under King Solomon and onward. At a later date there was a disagreement as to who was to be the rightful heir to the throne and the twelve tribes divided into the ten northernmost tribes who kept the name of Israel and would be conquered and taken into exile by the Assyrians not to be heard from until this modern era and were often referred to as the ten lost trines of Israel. The southern two Tribes, Judea and Benyamin, were the other part of this division who took the name of the larger tribe and became known as Judea. They were conquered by the Babylonians and returned when Cyrus the Great, a Persian, conquered Babylon and freed the Judeans to return and build the Second Temple. Then came the Greeks and the Romans and on and on. Under Rome, the Romans grew tired of saying Judeans so they shortened it Judans to Junes and finally they settled, as has the world ever since, on calling them by two letters, Ju, which is pronounced the same as the modern Jew. The descendants of the tribes of Juda and Benyamin along with their Priests which were from the tribes of the Levites and the Kohanim and these were the Jews who returned and founded modern Israel coming from all the areas surrounding the Mediterranean Sea including both Christian Europe and Islamic Middle East and Northern Africa as well as coming from Russia, the United States, Canada, Ethiopia, India and virtually every other nation on Earth. This is the history which the Palestinian Arabs are attempting to steal as well as the history of all of Christianity. Every Christmas Mahmoud Abbas and numerous other Palestinian Arab spokespeople claim that Jesus was a Palestinian Arab and a Muslim and claim the Churches in Jerusalem and Bethlehem are actually some of the oldest and original Mosques and belong to Palestinian Arab history. The two main churches they claim are the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Church of the Nativity. But please do not take our word for this as Christmas is fast approaching, which if you shop at Walmart, the Muzak being blared throughout the store already will make that evident, and they will likely make all these claims once more as repetition makes things believable. We have all heard the infamous quote from Joseph Goebbels which goes, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” If only this was the sole idea that the Palestinian Arabs learned from the Nazis, but then again the Mufti of Jerusalem put in place quite intentionally by the British, Amin al-Husseini, spent almost all of World War II hobnobbing with the Nazi elite and was rumored to have insisted that the Nazis promise that when they conquered the Middle East they would make it Judenrein for him as a reward for his broadcasting propaganda into the Middle East attempting to have the Arabs rise up and support the Nazis. The following leaders of the Palestinian Arabs, the Palestinian Authority, Hamas, Fatah, Islamic Jihad and any others have proven that the apple does not fall far from the tree, an idiom of unknown origins.
