FLASHBACK - Top Israeli archaeologists contest Jewish ties to Jerusalem

Top Israeli archaeologist Israel Finkelstein has denied the existence of Jewish roots in the city of Jerusalem, contrary to Israel’s claims that have prompted continued Judaization of the city.

Finkelstein, a professor at Tel Aviv University, said Jewish archaeologists have failed to unearth historic sites to support some of the stories in the Torah. Among those stories are the Jewish Exodus, the forty-year wandering in the Sinai desert, and Joshua’s victory over the Canaanites.

He also said there was no archaeological evidence that concludes that the alleged Temple of Solomon ever existed.

The fact is that the Torah, or Old Testament, was pretty much copied from older stories. There was no such thing as copyright in those days, after all. It is well established that the story of Noah and the Great Flood was lifted from the much earlier Epic of Gilgamesh. There are other examples as well, such as the story of Job. It would be foolish to assume that other aspects of the book were not also copied from other, now lost, sources.
