Palestinians likely to claim Dead Sea Scrolls at next UNESCO meeting

Palestinians likely to claim Dead Sea Scrolls at next UNESCO meetingFragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls. (Miriam Alster/FLASH90)

The request to include the Qumran Caves and Dead Sea Scrolls as their own may be made at the next UNESCO meeting this July, the Simon Wiesenthal Center predicts.

The next “prize” the Palestinians will likely claim as their own at the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) will probably be the archeological site of Qumran and its Dead Sea Scrolls, Shimon Samuels of the Simon Wiesenthal Center said Wednesday, according to The Jerusalem Post.

Addressing a panel on the denial of Jewish history in international organizations at the Global Forum for Combating Antisemitism in Jerusalem, Samuels listed the Palestinians’ “success” at falsely claiming ownership of biblical and cultural sites, the Post reported.

UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee has ascribed to “Palestine” Bethlehem’s Church of the Nativity in 2012; the agricultural terraces of Battir, site of the ancient Jewish fortress at Betar, in 2014; and Hebron’s Tomb of the Patriarchs in 2017, the Post noted.

In October 2016, the Committee voted in favor of a resolution denying the millennia-old Jewish connection to Jerusalem, including the Temple Mount and the Western Wall.

“This is yet another absurd resolution against the State of Israel, the Jewish people and historical truth,” Israel’s ambassador to UNESCO Carmel Shama-Hacohen stated at the time. “There is no connection of another people to another place in the world that comes close to the strength and depth of our connection to Jerusalem from a religious, historical and national perspective, a connection that has stood the test of 2,000 years.”

The request to include the Qumran Caves and the Dead Sea Scrolls may be made at the next World Heritage Committee meeting this July in Bahrain, Samuels told the conference, the Post reported.

Already in November 2016, Israel Radio reported that the Palestinians were planning the next stage in their attempted denial of Israel’s history and heritage by preparing to lay claim to the Dead Sea Scrolls at UNESCO.

The scrolls, mostly Hebrew writings from the Second Temple period, were discovered in the Qumran Caves in the environs of the Dead Sea. They include many biblical texts and are believed to have been written by members of a Jewish sect known as the Essenes.

The Fakestinians claim to be the indigenous people of the Land of Israel.
Where is their historical and archaeological record?

There is no historical or archaeological record because the heathen "Palestinians" (arabs) couldn't read, write, or make anything except trouble. What they own is an ancient history of uselessness. So now, sneaking in the back door, the arabs try and steal another peoples culture and biography. Only the anti-Semites will buy this absurd fiction.

MORE RECENTLY, I HEARD THAT THE TURKS BROUGHT MUSLIMS FROM BOSNIA TOO LIKE THE TAMIMI'S WHO ARE SLAPPING SOLDIERS AND ATTORNEYS.
AS FAR AS THE SCROLLS ARE CONCERNED, IF THEY CAN READ THEM, WE CAN GIVE THEM A XEROX COPY, SIGNED BY NETANYAHU.

I don't see it either, but Qumran is still an active archaeological site. Not everything has been explored. If the Palies lay claim, any findings could go to them. I sure hope not.

Muslim Arabs and the Koran arrived in Israel in the 7th century CE (AD) about 500 years after the DeadSea Scrolls by Jews transcribing mainly Biblical texts. They have nothing to do with Islam or Arabs.

The Palestinians ( and Arabs and Moslems ingeneral with some exceptions ) are SO DEEPLY STUPID that they don't understand THE DEGREE OF THEIR STUPIDITY.........

Their primitive religious ideology tells them that they have brought the last world of god and their prophet Mohammed is the last prophet and they have the right to kill non moslems like Christians and Jews who they consider unbelievers unless they convert.......................................

Then they claim that an ancient Judeochristian Dead sea Scrolls belongs to them...........The gravity and depth of their STUPIDITY is absolutely mind bugling !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wish Israel was as imaginative as these Arabs. First Israel lost the PR war to the Arabs by not stopping them from calling themselves Palestinians.

Israel is probably too busy just surviving all the attacks and the planned attacks.

I just wish they would initiate Project Z and that would be the end of all our problems.

I was sorry to hear that Wolf Blitzer was outed as a Mossad asset. I wonder how they found out.

They can 'claim' them all they want and the crooked UN will probably say that they are theirs but that does not mean that Israel is just going to hand them over to them. They claim everything Jewish so that they can erase Israel from history but Israel is a proven fact and our Christian Bibles do not mention the Palestinians.

The dead sea scrolls are written in Hebrew by Jewish people for Jews because they had been in the land of Israel for 4000 years. These Arabs discarded by their people in 1969 & calling themselves Palestinians are plain & simple squatters in the land.

The PA may be a self-serving, geriatric kleptocracy, but give credit where credit is due. Arafat learned the power of victim-hood from the Jews, and Abbas' use of the big lie is straight from Joseph Goebbels' playbook. Islam has never had a problem with fabricating its roots and history from earlier religions.

It is amazing to see that the Palestinians' false claims on Jewish heritage including Jerusalem and the Tomb of the Patriarchs, are fully supported by the UN. Interestingly enough, the Palestinian claims are not supported by facts, such as the Koran, Bible, historical manuscripts, archaeology, etc. As paper tigers, the Palestinians are creating a mirage of winning an imaginary war.

When it comes to REAL War, the Israel Defense Force puts the Palestinians and the whole Arab Army to shameless flight (1948, 1967, 1973), and who lack the moral fibre to stand and defend what they claim is theirs.

Then the cowardly Palestinians crawl slowly back to their holes, make pathetic mewing noises to the World and UN, run a voluminous propaganda of lies, and run their terrorists to murder innocent Israel civilians whilst hiding under "skirts" of children, schools, hospitals, and even UN offices. Now, when the IDF retaliates, the Palestinians claim that "innocent children" are being murdered.

What a joke of a so called people...Palestinians.

Abbas is simply jealous. His "palestinians" have no historical artifacts of their own. Why? Because they have no actual history, that's why. So he has to claim others. I'm waiting for him to claim that the Vatican was actually a palestinian site and belongs to him, followed closely by the White House in Washington D.C, Maybe he just covets Cleopatra's Needle and the Washington Monument, because they are just big phallic symbols, and that's the only way he can get it up.

Till very recently, Islamic seminaries taught that the world was jalalah (sp?) or full of barbarian ignorance before the birth of Muhammad some 1,400 years ago.

They should not now try to claim pre-Islamic heritage as their own when for more than a millennia they waged war on opposing cultures to bring them within the fold of Ummah.

Soon the Palestinians will claim the entire worlds Jewish heritages. The one thing it does prove is that the Palestinians are living in Jewish lands! lol
