A “secret report” by a high level Israeli authority documents the Muslim religious authority (The WAQF) continuing its long standing project of destroying evidence of ancient Jewish artifacts on Judaism’s most holy site the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem.
“An investigative report by Yedioth Ahronoth revealed the ongoing failure of various Israeli authorities in safeguarding the rare archaeological treasures found on Temple Mount. Information elicited by the newspaper showed that the Waqf is consistently erasing any trace of Jewish history at the site.”
One Jerusalem helped bring to the public’s attention the destruction of the Temple Mount back in 2007. After the international outcry against this ongoing destruction project Israel’s Antiquities Authority promulgated rules to stop this practice.
But it appears that these rules are not being enforced and the destruction continues. The decision by a Knesset committee not to make public the Report raises more questions about what is going on in Jerusalem.
The Yedioth article includes this:
“These days too, three tractors are being used on Temple Mount,” Caspi says. “Construction materials are also continuing to be brought into Temple Mount in violation of police pledges…Temple Mount looks today like a construction materials’ warehouse…materials being brought in today will be used for illegal works tomorrow.”
