Israeli excavations blamed for latest Silwan collapse


Jerusalem – Ma’an – The Al-Aqsa Foundation for Endowment and Heritage reported another street collapse on the main road in the area of Silwan in occupied East Jerusalem on Saturday.

“The collapse created a hole, two meters long and one and a half meters deep,” according to a statement from the foundation, which oversees the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound.

According to the foundation, the collapse was related to ongoing excavations by Israeli authorities in the vicinity, apparently on tunnels extending underneath the neighborhood about 700 meters from the mosque compound. Authorities recently removed quantities of dirt and rocks from under Silwan to undisclosed locations, the statement said.

  1. And the rest of the World is looking on until the structures
    are damaged or destroyed. The King of Jordan has eyes but cannot see what is going on. Receiving a salary from the CIA or Mossad may be more important to him than protecting the Holy Sites in Al Quds he is supposed to watch over.

  2. This is a long standing and on-going crime. Google Elad in regard to Silwan and learn it is a crackpot “biblical” and “archaeological” organization (both terms require quotes) This organization is nothing more than a “replace the niggers with Jews” operation which operates in violation of Israel’s antiquities laws and local ordinances. It is one of the most openly “prove the bible is true” this side of a Christian fundie movement.

    The people make the gonzo adventurers of the 19th c. look scholarly.

    That said, and I could go one and one with quotations from newspapers both jewish and israeli just to show how condemnation can be phrased both politely and beyond the reach of libel laws. Even Israel Finkelstein, The Bible Unearthed, has damned them in carefully academic terminology.

    This digging is without the required licensing by the Israeli Antiquities Authority. The IAA knows all about its activies and does nothing. Digging under inhabited areas is strictly prohibited in Israeli law without the supervision of a licensed civil engineer. Needless to say these digs are by volunteers with spades and wood from “home depot” as shoring to prevent collapse.

    This is the face of Jews as rulers of bibleland.
