Jan 22nd 2013 11:17AM Since there is no state of Palestine, one has to wonder what map the reporter who wrote the story was looking at. As far as destroying antiquities is concerned, nobody has done a better job than the Jordanians and the Palestinians (genetically the same). While all of Jerusalem was in Jordanian hands between 1948 and 1967 countless churches, cemeteries, tombs, temples and other holy sites were desecrated and destroyed and the bulldozers on the Temple Mount have done the same high quality archeologic excavations. As for Gaza not being able to get the equipment it needs, why not simply smuggle that in through the tunnels instead of missiles?
