    What is going on with the IAA? It seems to me that they have become a sort of malvolient authority arresting people, destroying eveidence, altering relics,for what purpose? Doesn't the Israel people and goverment themselves care about these irreplaceable treasures, that they would let someone who is so totally ignorant or worst,filled with some other self centered aggenda, be in charge. I have being waiting for months for at least a hint of an official goverment led investigation of the head of this agency and his high handed tatics. It truely saddens me that there seems to be no relief from this all powerful misguided appointee. He is not degreeded, just politically connected, and given a position that effects the well being of so many irreplaceable pieces of history, that the whole world is connected to and cares about. the lose of this history effects me, everyone, every where. It's not just "your" history or antique its "ours" too. Our traditions are built on same bedrock.
