Puff Article on Archeology Generates Hatred

Anav Silverman, Israeli blogger for the Huffington Post, wrote an article about a home in Jerusalem that was above an ancient home, a home believed to be from the time of the Second Temple, which contains tons of artifacts from that time. According to the article,
"During more than 18 years of unearthing, the Siebenbergs discovered a ritual bath, known as a mikveh used by Jews during the Second Temple era, an aqueduct, a Byzantine water cistern, and even empty burial chambers believed to have been used by Jewish royalty in the 10th century B.C. during King Solomon's reign."
Because this article involved a) Israel and b) Jerusalem, a few Huffposters arrived to vent their hatred.  This time, it was mostly contained to trying to deny Jewish presence in Jerusalem/the land of Israel, and of course whining about Palestinian "stolen land." Here's some of the comments:
