The joke here is there are no "Palestinian antiquities" -- there are Israeli antiquities. Must we remind the Islamic world that their formation was 1,400 years ago?
This crap has to stop. The Muslims cannot tolerate Jewish history. Too bad. Get over it.

There is nothing Fakestinian about that. Historical fiction. Considering the Dutch lost 95% of their Jews in the Holocaust, they ought to be more circumspect.
Dutch students, gov't team up with Nablus for excavation Ma'an News Agency
Bethlehem - Ma'an - A 5,000 year old city is the focus of a UNESCO, Nablus and Dutch government initiative seeking to boost the Palestinian Department of Antiquities and Cultural Heritage's resources and technical experience, a statement said.
A 300,000 euro donation from the Netherlands to UNESCO will support continued excavations and preservation at the Tell Balata Archaeological Site. Under the initiative, students from the University of Leiden will participate to provide technical expertise, officials said at the signing ceremony on Monday.
Dutch representative to Palestine Jack Twiss Quarles van Ufford called the initiative a step in support of caretaker Prime Minster Salam Fayyad's plan to build state institutions ahead of the declaration of a Palestinian state in 2011. "The creation of institutions can only be sustainable if it goes hand in hand with the strengthening of the cultural identity of the Palestinian people," Twiss said in a statement.
The Tell Balata site is listed by UNESCO in the Inventory of Cultural and Natural Heritage Sites of Potential Outstanding Universal Value in Palestine, and is located in the city of Nablus. According to experts, the area includes towers and buildings from the Chalcolithic and Bronze Age dating back 5,000 years.
That's Jewish time!
"Sites like Tell Balata are simply too important to be neglected," Twiss said, emphasizing the cooperation with Holland's oldest university, Leiden, from where students would come to learn and train.
Sites like Tell Balata are simply too important to be politicized and used as a tool for Jewish genocide.
And regarding the Muslim respect for archeological sites, don't make me laugh:
For a number of years already, there is the selected destruction of Christian/Jewish artifacts which is of course the center for Jewish/Christian religion. On the temple mount, King Solomon stables up to the cruaders on...........when the taliban destroyed the buddas in Afghanistan all the world was corrextly enraged. Here we see the systematic, the biggest maybe in the history of geology/archeology, destruction of the most important artifacts for Christianity and Judaism. And the world knows nothing of this.
Nobody is permitted to go and see and watch whats happening. Excavators are working there. They are taking thousands and thousands of pounds and thousands of artifacts and simply thrown out. It is perhaps one the largest archeological catastrophes in history.
