I wonder if comment #1 and #2 are Jewish being they have no problem with archeologists working on Desecrating Jewish Graves. Had they dig up a graves someone close to you, what would your pathetic reaction/ comments be then?

look how gentle the border patrol in Israel is.
The Americans have a lot to learn
Try to be a little sensitive to outer people. even if you don’t agree.

Why don’t they go disrupt the Arabs who prevented Jews from praying on the Temple Mount on Friday. That would be a productive outlet for all that rage an energy.

If they find bones, it would be logical that its probably from yiddin. But then again, the govt of the m’dina obviously doesn’t give a hoot about anything Yiddishkeit.

i too abhor the thought of any desecration of gravesites.
the problem is when u dig in eretz yisroel u r bound to encounter a grave because so many people have been killed , slaughtered and a few just died in that tiny land for thousands of years. The govt. has for the most part been respectful. not for religious reasons but for the need to find “:artifacts” to show ancient jewish life and subsequently prove “our” narative to the nations. thats what happens when a govt and a majority of the population dimiss the original true source and need verification from secondary sources. what a shame all around

Sometimes the chareidim go to far. There was a grave found with crosses is them and the chareidim rioted anyway. No we protect non-Jewish graves too?

This just gives them something to do so they can avoid learning.

All the hate here against the charedim. Does it stem from the same dark place that traditional anti semitism comes from.?.?.?.?.

Think about it and good
