    Dear Haaretz correspondent, it is a great pity that you have not even tried to follow up the controversy of the IAA policy towards the scrolls that are tirelessly sent abroad to numerous exhibitions to earn money. The scrolls return damaged. Who is is responsible for that? Concerning the "restoration work" you omitted to remark that scientific studies on the scroll material have been conducted since 50's. The results are published. It seems that the ladies from the IAA are still unaware of these publications. Meanwhile the proof that they harm the scrolls considerably by wrong treatments has been published. Furthermore, it is common knowledge that scrolls can not be restored, they (or what has been left of them) can be only preserved. Ms. Shor is aware of the harmful activities for she is in possession of a number of reports on the state of the affairs. Your naive article will allow the IAA to ruin the scrolls. Dr. Ira Rabin, former scientific advisor to the IAA
