Writers use the term "where by tradition" when there is no archaeological or documented proof that something actually existed, and so it is 'by tradition' that people believe something about a place or object. This small but sinister little phrase used by Haaretz speaks volumes. It is not 'by tradition' that people think the temple was on the Temple Mount. There is ample historical documentation, maps, THE WALL, artifacts to PROVE it existed. Shame on Haaretz.
