    In Jerusalem, in Jewish neighbourhoods, I have seen similar excavations, several metres under the residents' homes. Crazy? Yes. But I don't think one may describe this as a matter of 'Israeli depravity', nor couch it in Jew-vs-Arab terms - which is where you seem to be going with it. Archeology is more than a national pass-time there. Call it an 'Israeli passion' or even an 'Israeli mania'. But let's not throw even more petrol on the fire, please, just because the houses above the dig - this particular time - are those of Arabs. By the way, in the US, a property title or deed will often detail the mineral rights under a structure or a parcel. And you might be surprised to learn here in So Cal, oil companies perform something called 'directional drilling', in which they indeed may be digging under any number of homes. So, someone actually may be digging under your place in charming North Carolina, even as I write you. And they're probably not Jewish. MV
