    I just thought I would mention this latest find will do little to help "maintain (or promote) the Jewish character" of the state of Israel. This latest find debunks Zionist propaganda that aims to point only to "jewish history"--which all totaled is not a drop in the bucket in Palestine's long history. Once again as we have seen so many times before how these finds point to the diverse history in Palestine and the fact it never was exlusivily Jewish--even when the Hebrews had their feifdoms of Israel and Judea in biblical times--there always existed a VERY diverse group of people from all walks of life, ethnicity and religion. This was true then and it's true today. This discovery and the thousands of other archaeological finds available throughout the land of Palestine--today Israel--all point to a long history of multi-culturism, pluralistism and diverse societies. Zionist brand of exclusivity goes against the history of this land. Do unto others as you would want them to do unto you. In 30 years or less from now, Jews will become the minority in this land. We should all embrace the rich history of this land, be it Christian, Jewish or Islamic. More importantly, this is 2005 A.D and these finds should make Zionists re-examine what it means to have a "Jewish" state when so little, if any, of the archaelogical finds are from "jewish" past?
