PA Creates an Ancient Village that Never Existed – Naomi Kahn
Over the past two years, the PA has created, out of thin air, a “historic” village at a strategic point adjacent to the Jerusalem-Hebron highway. With EU funding, the PA has renovated two primitive stone structures used by passing shepherds or farmers as shelter from the elements, and has added 15 homes at the site. Signs posted on the refurbished buildings, proudly bearing the EU emblem, explain that the site is an ancient village. Yet aerial photos from 1967, as well as historic maps dating back to 1880, prove there was never any settlement of any kind at the site.
“This is another phase in the PA-European Union program to seize control over strategic areas,” says Yishai Hemo, field coordinator for NGO Regavim. (JNS-Israel Hayom)
