    You equate national disputes with parliament disputes, majority in the former case is irrelevant. And in no way this gives the right to Arabs to destroy national Jewish heritage.

    No, it doesn't give anyone "the right" to do anything. Rights can't be given.

    The POWER to destroy lies with those who hold the power over anything. That's the unfortunate reality of the world we live in. You control it, you can do whatever you like with it.

    The whole situation is a power struggle between two peoples and they'll use culture and history to further their own political goals, and right now, neither is being pretty subtle about it.

    Not discussing Politics. Not discussing power on this thread.

    This thread is to discuss the destruction of Jewish Heritage/History.

    How much of it has been done. Since when? Why only since a certain year. Why only Jewish History? Why are the Arabs destroying what they have been saying is really their heritage, so on and so forth.

    No need to point out over and over again that it is a "Power struggle between two people".

    I am asking WHY ??????? are the Arabs destroying what they allege is their history?

    Before the establishment of the state of Israel and its success blew that theory up.

    The simple answer is: Because Jewish history in Israel ISN'T their history. They need to destroy Jewish history in Israel to hide it, so they can claim they've been there for 10,000 years. Sort of like a criminal trying to destroy evidence.

    [ Gratefully the Arabs do not have control over every archeological site so that findings like this one cannot be destroyed. But they will sure would like to find a way of doing so, or claiming it as theirs ]

    The Palestinian Arab Ma'an News Agency, which is touted as independent and objective, reports the story this way in Arabic:
    Continuing the attempts of the Israeli occupation to write an imaginary history of its control over the city of Jerusalem, it continues to talk about the artificial history of the temple and what it calls "its ancient history" in the city.

    Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's spokesman for the Arab media, Ophir Gendelman, published photographs of relics that the Israeli Antiquities Authority allegedly found in excavations near the Al-Buraq Wall. The occupation claims that they confirm their "ancient history" in the city, and that the seals and artifacts date back to the period of the "First Temple" 2,700 years ago and to one of the "rulers of Jerusalem" mentioned in the Torah.

    In other words, an alleged indigenous people destroying their alleged indigenous history/heritage is of no concern of yours.

    It is THEIR history, and they can do whatever they wish with them.

    Now, where in the world does any other indigenous people think that way?

    I didn't say it wasn't of concern.

    It's their history, they can't do with it whatever they like. Though they seem to.

    I mean, the Israelis actually back Turkey in suppressing the Armenian genocide because.... because they want to be the eternal victims of the Holocaust, and if other cultures have their own victimization then this hurts Israel in promoting their own.

    It's a power play, trying to force people to accept their way of thinking rather than someone else's.

    You talk about "indigenous people", in the middle of the 1500s there were around 5,000 Jews in the Palestine area. In the middle of the 1600s there were around 2,000 Jews in the area.

    At the same time there were around 200,000 Muslims in the area. Just like Israel with the Armenian Genocide, you're using "indigenous" as a loaded word, that if you actually look at it properly, doesn't mean too much.
