Maybe the correct Israeli response to this Dutch interference and undermining of peace negotiations is to simply stop Dutch archeology faculty at Ben Gurion airport customs and send them back on the next flight. This is not about archeology (as the article notes), this is about Dutch attempts to promote a regional war in the ME, because that is what a unilateral PA declaration of independence in 2011 or any other time would do. A PA state has no right to exist unless it recognizes the Jewish State of Israel and renounces claims to Jewish soil with a binding, negotiated peace treaty. And how are the Dutch going to support this 2011 "unilateral state" - with their navy and marines? Colonial Holland (aka SHELL) needs to butt out of a ME where they have no place.
