Controversy Rages Over ‘Jerusalem Curse’ Inscription

Is there even any writing at all on the slab found in an ancient temple in Jerusalem, and if there is, what does it say?

They are arguing over scratches on a rock!!
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

That's pretty much S.O.P. for this field. They're always contentious & back stabbing. I don't expect it to change in my lifetime. I imagine that once the object goes open access the fur will really fly. It's not entertaining anymore. I feel like sending them to time out in various corners & telling them not to emerge until they can be civil with one another.

Galil is a right-winger. He and Garfinkle are pushing the Khirbet Qeiyafa ostracon as some sort of foundation document for David's "Empire" when no one else can even agree on what language it is written in.

So I don't take him too seriously.
