The Antiquities Authority Just Restored Ancient Structures of Christian Idol Worship in Ramat Beit Shemesh

What do we recite upon seeing such abominations? "Blessed is He who uprooted idol worship from our land!"

The structures, somewhat north of Emek Haelah, contained mosaics, ornate stone walls, carved marble window bars, and pillars. The site is dated to the Byzantine era, over 1,500 years ago.

The site was preserved very well, after having been suddenly abandoned. The building materials were apparently brought here by ship and wagon all the way from Turkey.

Before being expelled forever from the Holy Land, the location may have been a central gathering place for Crusaders in the Yehuda Plains.

The excavations were performed at the expense of delaying creating neighborhoods in the city, at the behest of the State's Building and Housing Ministry, the Antiquities Authority and the CPM Company. As if we didn't have enough idol worship from the local monastery!

In short, the Antiquities Authority and Housing Ministry conspired to use our stolen money renewing many idolatrous Christian artifacts. For this Shmad purpose, the state also paid over a thousand Jewish youth, boys and girls from government schools and pre-military academies. As they say: "Only the Right can do it!"

As King David said before killing Goliath, in about the same location these abominations were located:

"You attack with sword and spear, while I attack bearing the name of The G-d of Hosts, Warrior of Israel's Armies you blasphemed".

He who laughs last, laughs best. "Hear, o Israel, G-d is our G-d, G-d is one".

What do we recite upon seeing such abominations? "Blessed is He who uprooted idol worship from our land!"

Needless to add, G-d forbid to damage the place in any way, as we explained the Torah's view at length elsewhere on Mehadrinews.
