Israel Discovers Ancient Village, HP Discovers Hatred

In a story that is fairly common in today's world, Israeli archeologists uncovered a village over 2,000 years old.
"On the outskirts of Jerusalem, archaeologists have discovered the remains of a 2,300-year-old rural village that dates back to the Second Temple period, the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) announced.
Trenches covering some 8,000 square feet (750 square meters) revealed narrow alleys and a few single-family stone houses, each containing several rooms and an open courtyard. Among the ruins, archaeologists also found dozens of coins, cooking pots, milling tools and jars for storing oil and wine.
"The rooms generally served as residential and storage rooms, while domestic tasks were carried out in the courtyards," Irina Zilberbod, the excavation director for the IAA, explained in a statement. [The Holy Land: 7 Amazing Archaeological Finds]
Archaeologists don't know what the town would have been called in ancient times, but it sits near the legendary Burma Road, a route that allowed supplies and food to flow into Jerusalem during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War. The rural village located on a ridge with a clear view of the surrounding countryside, and people inhabiting the region during the Second Temple period likely cultivated orchards and vineyards to make a living, IAA officials said."
 There were 16 comments total, and most of them were either in the "huh, interesting" vein or anti-religion, but one HPer couldn't hold back her hatred.



Looks like she's protesting a bit too much.

  1. She's among the worst offenders, but since she seems enamored of the undeniably Jewish MJR, maybe she just dislikes--what's the term "they" toss around? oh yeah--"Israel's apologists."
