relations with Israelis/Jews[edit]

From several accounts, she refused to meet with Israeli archaeologists, since apparently acknowledging the existence of Israeli citizens would for her have been tantamount to acknowledging the existence of the state of Israel (unthinkable!). AnonMoos 14:35, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

I have heard such accounts as well from my professors in HUJI. 68.160.208.148 (talk) 03:02, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

This rumour-mongering is distasteful and has no place even on a talk page. If there is actual evidence, please produce it; only then will there be something worth discussing. SamuelTheGhost (talk) 10:21, 1 August 2009 (UTC)
...What the hell? I have never heard anything like this. She is one of the most revered archaeologists of our area. Best have a damn good source if you are going to make accusations like that. I will consult with my prof about this one and see if I find anything else. This sounds fake though as like I said, she is a highly respected archaeologist and no one would respect her as much if she had such an attitude. TheArchaeologist Say Herro 03:05, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
She was a respected archaeologist, but her main reaction to the outcome of the 6-day war of 1967 seems to have been to refuse to meet or meaningfully cooperate with any Israeli Jews. She was over 60 at the time, of course, and she was seemingly stuck in some pre-WW2 decade, and just couldn't deal with the realities of the post-1967 decade...

P.S. I think I read it in Biblical Archaeology Review over five years ago, but I really couldn't specify the article; despise me if you must... AnonMoos (talk) 21:59, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
Hmm, makes sense I guess. What luck, I actually subscribed to BAR's lifetime membership which gives me access to all their old articles (for unrelated reasons). So I can look through them. BAR can be a bit dodgy at times, but every archaeologist in the area is subscribed to and writes in it. =p Oh yes, I am sending negative hate beams your way as I type this or w/e scientologists call those things. =p Sir William Matthew Flinders Petrie, AKA TheArchaeologist Say Herro 23:25, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
