    A Muslim palace built on the ruins of a Jewish synagogue. Ruined by Muslims.

    Israeli historians seem to disagree with you.

    Take it up with them. I'm sure they'll be impressed by your internet archaeological skills.

    Which archaeologists? What are their credentials? Barbaric Muslims destroyed the houses of worship when they conquered lands and built mosques in their place.

    Where in the Salon article did it say "Israeli historians". I must have missed it. They also didn't really go into detail except to say that originally it was identified as a synagogue because of a carving of a menorah but 'now they say they were wrong'. Not a lot of detail there.

    But I wouldn't be surprised anyway... romans built over jewish sites... then the crusaders built over those sites... then arabs over those...

    or was the Dome of the Rock not built on the holiest of Jewish sites?

    There is this wonderful thing called the internet. You may have heard of it. Great research tool ya know.

    Article said Israeli Archaeologists. I have no reason to disagree with the Jewish experts in the field of Jewish Archaeology. You seem to. Go take it up with them.
