Webcast: EU – Archaeology used as tool to legitimize settlements in East Jerusalem


According to a leaked internal report obtained by the Guardian, European Union diplomats claim that Israel is using archaeological excavations in Jerusalem as a “political tool to modify the historical narrative and to support legitimize and expand settlements.” On today’s program, archaeologist Brent Nagtegaal looks at the EU’s claim in reference to the ancient city of Jerusalem known as the City of David.

Why the EU is afraid of archeology in East Jerusalem? Let them face the facts.

Dear Mr. Nagtegaal,
Greetings from Brazil and thank you for covering courageously and truthfully the issues on Jerusalem and its biblical history.
It is obvious that several parties are lusting for Jerusalem for different reasons. Those who write things like that are not interested in the truth or any biblical proof of the Bible—they are not interested in God, or a better world. Their outrageous lies, scheming and evil plots are for strategic reasons and empirical power grabs. I wonder how they can have the courage to affront our Maker? But then, it’s not courage but foolishness. For is it not written that the stones will cry out God´s truth, if men do not? Like so many nowadays they want people to believe what they say and not what the truth clearly reveals.
May our heavenly Father give you all precious blessings, protection and full success in the current archaeological digs under Dr. Mazar´s guidance.
