    No one knows if he even existed, let alone if he is buried. Source?: Israels own chief archeologists. It is all a very convenient fairy tale, cleverly woven to establish two things: 1) A Jewish claim to superiority as a result of being chosen by their G-D who has yet to appear. 2) A Jewish claim to all of what is now called Israel without any documented claim. All of Israels actions and the actions of its past prime ministers, especially Ariel Sharon who has been brain dead for several years, is to perpetuate this myth of claim to the land via the spurious claims being made, including the use of so-called national heritage sites, which, in themeselves, are a total pretense and close to an outright lie. The nation of Israel, if it choses this path, will turn out to be a nation woven out of whole cloth, with many huge holes in its fabric.
