Archaeology and politics


The Anchoress covers the re—discovery of the Pool of Siloam in Jerusalem, a place of ritual bathing, and the likely site of a miracle of Jesus. As with everything in the Middle East, the political implications are profound. Earlier disgraceful New York Times coverage attemtping to disparage the significance of Jerusalem is well—noted.

This find is good news for lovers of history and for supporters of Israel. Read why at The Anchoress.
