Archeology in Israel

Hundreds of lavish stone floor tiles believed to have decorated the Second Temple in Jerusalem have been identified in rubble removed from the Temple Mount, archaeologists announced Tuesday.
The bits and pieces of 2,000-year-old marble flooring were found in fill removed from the contested holy site in the late 1990s when the Jerusalem Islamic Waqf, the institution overseeing the al-Aqsa Mosque compound on the Mount, carried out excavations as part of the construction of a subterranean mosque in an area known as Solomon’s Stables.
The current spilling of Jewish blood by pious Muslims is, of course, incited by the PA, Hamas, Hizbullah, Islamic State, etc., through the false claim that Israel is set on changing the status quo on the Temple Mount. Of course, Israel is doing no such thing.
But think about it for a moment. Muslims are murdering Jews because they believe that Israel is seeking to legitimize the right of Jews to pray on the Temple Mount.
This murderous intolerance should outrage every decent American — Democrat and Republican.
As the Demorats and their ObamaCare law grinds millions of Americans into misery, we who love this republic, are deeply worried about its future.
Simultaneously, Obama betrays Israel at every step, enabling the IslamoNazis of Iran to achieve their nuclear goal. Thus, Israelis, and those who love Zion, are also worried about the future.
But as we move into the last day of Chanukah, here’s a wonderful story about the past. For the first time, a building dating to the Hasmonean Period has been discovered in the walls around the Jerusalem National Park.
