Ya gotta wonder at these loony Fakestinians who deny that 
da Jooooooooos ever had roots in Israel...How can they even look at themselves in the mirror?

If they had a shred of conscience, they'd all just blow their own brains out, and drastically improve the moral climate of the planet Earth.

Another great article from Israel National News

A breakthrough in the research of the Hebrew Scriptures has shed new light on the period in which the Bible books of the Prophets were written. Professor Gershon Galil of the Department of Biblical Studies at the University of Haifa has deciphered an inscription dating from the 10th century BCE (the period of King David’s reign) and has proven the inscription to be ancient Hebrew, thus making it the earliest known example of Hebrew writing.
The significance of this breakthrough relates to the fact that at least some of the Biblical scriptures are now proven to have been composed hundreds of years before the dates presented today in research and that the Kingdom of Israel already existed at that time.
The inscription itself, which was written in ink on a 15x16.5cm trapezoid pottery shard, was discovered a year and a half ago at excavations that were carried out by Professor Yosef Garfinkel near the Elah valley, south of Jerusalem, and west of Hevron.
The researchers dated the inscription back to the 10th century BCE, which was the period of King David’s reign...

The contents of the text express social sensitivity to the fragile position of weaker members of society and the inscription testifies to the presence of strangers within the Israeli society as far back as this ancient period, calling on native Hebrews to provide support for these strangers. It advocates care for widows and orphans and encourages the king – who at that time had the responsibility of curbing social inequality – to be involved in improving Israeli society. This inscription is similar in its content to Biblical scriptures (Isaiah 1:17, Psalms 72:3, Exodus 23:3, and others), but according to Galil it is not copied from any Biblical text.

The deciphered text:

1' you shall not do [it], but worship the [Lord].

2' Judge the sla[ve] and the wid[ow] / Judge the orph[an]

3' [and] the stranger. [Pl]ead for the infant / plead for the po[or and]

4' the widow. Rehabilitate [the poor] at the hands of the king.

5' Protect the po[or and] the slave / [supp]ort the stranger.

Notice the striking language of concern for such unlikely figures as "the poor...the slave...the stranger." Compare and contrast this instruction from 1000 years B.C.E. with how a certain much later religion instructs its adherents to treat the "the kuffar."

They find relics like this in Israel every single day, yet so many people act as if the Jews are intruders in a land that never even saw an Arabian until one thousand seven hundred years after this text was written.
