    Wouldn´t these archiologists be better keeping quiet...?

    I am pretty sure that the inhabitants, estimated at around 6,000 people, were not Jewish?!?!

    Maybe god(?) appeared AFTER these particular inhabitants and declared it.... Oh wait...

    Israeli archaeologists unearth ancient city

    What makes you think they were “not Jewish”? And what significance do you put on that ideology?

    That must have made sense in Your head before writing that down.
    Was it an attempt to be smug or appear smart?

    They couldn't be Jewish; the Torah wasn't given to the Children of Israel yet.
    And man...are you stupid!

    What difference does it make?
    The questions should be rather - were the inhabitants Semites, could they write,
    and the name of the city.

    That would give some perspective.

    OUTSTANDING POST! Little did those Zionists know these ancient people were the indigenous Akkadian Palestinians, right? Heh Heh!

    First of all, the article doesn't say that they were not Jewish/Israelite/Hebrew. Secondly, the Bible makes no secret of the fact that King David captured the city from the Jebusites. The Jebusites aren't around any longer. As between the Jews and the Arab nomads, the Jews are more indigenous to Jerusalem.
