Gaza farmer finds 4,500-year-old statue of Canaanite goddess
A stone statue of an ancient goddess of beauty, love and war has been found in the Gaza Strip.

Hamas, the Islamist militant group which governs the tiny Palestinian territory, says the head of the Canaanite deity, Anat, dates back 4,500 years to the late Bronze Age.

The discovery was made by a farmer digging his land in Khan Younis.
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.
