NPR story on Dead Sea Scrolls makes listener feel like a goose being force-fed Israel propaganda

By Philip Weiss on November 19, 2011

NPR did a breathless story Thursday on an exhibit of the Dead Sea Scrolls in a space called Discovery Times Square– an exhibit mounted in partnership with the Israeli Antiquities Authority, an Israeli governmental authority. But reporter Margot Adler didn’t tell you that.

Adler: … you can roam past artifacts from the Israeli Antiquities Authority, some never shown before. Statues, pottery, jewelry, Roman Hellenistic and objects from ancient Israel, the first and second temple periods.

I don’t know that that’s properly described as “ancient Israel.” These artifacts are from all over lands ruled by many different kingdoms. Qumram, the place where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found, is today in the Occupied West Bank, what we now call Palestine.

Adler: [Curator] Risa Levitt Kohn says there are 350 active excavations going on in Israel at any time

Again, I don’t think these excavations are going on in Israel. The Israeli Antiquities Authority — with whom Levitt Kohn works closely — lists many excavations underway in occupied territories, including the Golan, East Jerusalem, and the West Bank.

Adler: and one purpose of the exhibit is to help people appreciate the ancient world.

Huh. Is that really the purpose of the exhibit? Somehow I doubt it.

  1. Zioturds are getting desperate in their hasbarat propagandizing thru Nashunul Pentagon Radio. Years ago, in New York, these same scum had hollow cost crap on all of the cable channels, 24/7.

    it’s a shame that the world has figured out that these khazar bastards are frauds truly too bad.
