Your own worst enemy - and this friend is spitting fire.

Israel Today has this article on what could be a major archaeological find, if anyone was allowed to excavate it. It is the remains of a palace that could date back to David. It is in the in the Judean hills in territory claimed by the Palestinian Authority. The Antiquities Authority is worried about political sensitivities and jeopardising the peace process. 

Israel is colluding in the suppression of its own history in the Land.

In the short term, it could be problematic, but as one famous Jew said, You shall know the truth, and the truth will set you free'. He was speaking of Himself as the Messiah, but it also applies to lesser non-incarnate truths.

It does the Arabs no good to have the truth about Israels' history hidden from them. Strengthen the hands of those who want to live in peace in the Land. Tell the truth.

What sort of hasbara is this? Sometimes Israel really is its own worst enemy.


  1. Hallo, Ian.

    I've just come over via Daphne Anson's blog. This last post definitely struck a chord with me - because this comes on top of the worst suppression of all of our history - the deliberate destruction of Jewish antiquities on the Temple Mount, while the Israeli Authorities turn a blind eye. (Of course, it was a mistake to give the keys to the Temple Mount back to the Waqf after the 6-Day War and we've gone on making the same mistake over and over again.) We have got to the state that the Arabs (the ones you meet in the street, in taxis, in the grocery store) actually believe that there never was a Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount! And, continuing the trend to suppress history, our enemies are now trying to convince the world that the Jews of today aren't Jews at all, but descendants of the Khazars!

  2. Dear Shimona,

    I will shortly post on more of my journey in Christian Zionism. Yes, I will touch on the Temple Mount in that. I agree it was a mistake. There was not enough faith in the God of Israel to keep the nation, even though there are many Christians as well as Jews who saw what happened as part of God's work. Please keep reading. I've some interesting, if contentious, material to blog on.

    I've taken a quick look at your blog. My wife will like your banner. We inherited a second cat from mother-in-law when she died. These two boys are not as friendly as the ones in your picture. Give me a dog any day!

    Every blessing,
