Preserving the Eternal

September 4, 2023

Eve Harow speaks with archaeologist Adi Shragai about the ongoing destruction of heritage sites in Judea and Samaria by the Palestinian Authority and antiquity thieves. As Activity Coordinator for the organization Shomrim al HaNetzach, Adi explains how they’re striving to galvanize awareness of both politicians and the public to the dangers lurking to these irreplaceable places.

UNESCO is about to declare Ancient Jericho a ‘Palestinian heritage site’ which is absurd on so many levels. Joshua’s Altar on Mount Eival is threatened with immediate demolition by the PA.

The list is long and the awareness and interest not great but there are some positive developments that keep Adi optimistic.

Eve, not so much.
