Mismanagement by Palestinians

I saw mention of this by Shahar Shocron on the facebook-

Journalist Michael Freund posted the image above on his Facebook page. For those who cannot recognize what it is, Freund explains. “Here, in a pile of rubble and trash on the Temple Mount, lies a marble column from the Second Temple that was broken and then discarded by the Muslim Wakf which effectively controls the area. Our heritage is under assault. It is time for the Israeli government to act, and take back control of the Temple Mount!”

I’m not so sure about the last sentence but the fact that such things are being trashed by the Palestinians is inexcusable.  The ‘erasure’ of history by the means of the destruction or dismissal of historical artifacts is inexcusable, whether it’s being done by Israelis or Palestinians.
