while you don't want to haphazzardly be digging and causing damage (and this article doesn't give any facts that correlate the excavation to house damage), archeology - especially of 2000+ year old ruins - is incredibly important. if this housing area was to be built today, they would have to do a dig first to show thtat there aren't any artifacts. so apologies to the residents who are inconvenienced, but any nation embraced archeology. the Muslims are hating it only because its Jewish archeology.
