Yes, you read that right -- the Arab Palestinians are going to make a formal request to UNESCO to have "their" cultural heritage, the Dead Sea Scrolls, returned to them.

The audacity of it is shocking.

Next they'll be asking for their Talmud back.

If their heritage is hebrew, why don't they convert to Jewish?

Possibly true. But recognition of the value or holiness of someone else's cultural heritage does not make it your cultural heritage nor does it give you leave to appropriate it.

Actual modern day Muslims, perhaps. But they are not currently running things within the faith.

The people whose culture it belongs to! That is rather the point of UNESCO -- to protect the world's cultural heritage. Jewish writings belong to the Jewish people.

Just who ever was first? does that seem fair? would you accept that rule for your own religious artifacts?

only if they have religous value yes lol
So if cultural artifacts from the past are in any way religious they should be destroyed? I'm beyond words.

The Dead Sea Scrolls are part of everyone's heritage, not only Israelis.

sure but so is van gogh's or michealangelos artwork, and if millions of people were murdering eachother and cutting eachothers heads off in the desert, over who was the better painter, or who gets to "keep" one of van goghs paintings in their country you probably would burn it yourself wouldn't you?

Bed wetting libturds are happy to destroy history.

What struck me as funny is that you accused Purple Turd of "thinking".

It's clinically impossible to be a libturd and think. Always keep that in mind. You're not corresponding with rational adults when talking to libturds. These are drones.
