Angry journalists, who initially boycotted the session, describe subcommittee's claims to be part of a 'witch hunt,' and slam Israel's 'authoritarian' efforts to clamp down on the media.14:27 09.02.16 | 2 comments
If you want detail, don't look for it in a newspaper. Many of the scholarly papers on the subject are available online. Garfinkel has been very sloppy excavating the site and has a history of jumping to conclusions. It is possible his interpretation is right, but extremely unlikely. Archaeologists who dig with "a spade in one hand and a Bible in the other" do bad science. Unfortunately that sort of bad science has become very common in Israel, because the nationalists use archaeology politically.
