Ancient Jewish Presence in Afghanistan Discovered, Haters Hate

The Huffington Post published the interesting story of ancient Jewish texts found in a Taliban stronghold in Afghanistan. According to the article,
"The Afghan collection gives an unprecedented look into the lives of Jews in ancient Persia in the 11th century. The paper manuscripts, preserved over the centuries by the dry, shady conditions of the caves, include writings in Hebrew, Aramaic, Judea-Arabic and the unique Judeo-Persian language from that era, which was written in Hebrew letters."
Naturally, while most of the comments on the article were positive, the Israel haters of the HP inevitably arrived to highjack the conversation. Here's some of the comments:

But remember, Jews and Israel are completely separate!
