Untitled[edit]

Well, today is February 26, 2006, and several months have passed. Has a verdict been reached? Strange that a group which has a vested interest in finding King David's Palace should go right out and find it, when it has been sought unavailingly for 3000 years. It will be remembered that William Kristol, one of the sponsors of the digs, thought also that WMD would be found in Iraq.

Now, it's October 24, 2006, and I don't see anything further.

  • Well, right now there are really only two good explanations, and I fail to see how the Phonecian similiarity would be in a Jesubite fotress.(Perhaps they did though). It may be strange, but its important to note, that its not like its of any major consequence to Biblical minimalists, at least as far as a I can tell. It just shows David had a big palace, and that the Bible was right on that fact. 74.137.230.39 04:31, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

Recent news reports on Dr. Mazar[edit]

1. On Feb. 14, 2007 the Jerusalem Post published a long article based on questions submitted by readers to Dr. Mazar titled Q&A on the Temple Mount with Dr. Eilat Mazar.Referring to the decision by ex-Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to allow the Muslim authorities to build a third mosque in the area of the Temple Mount known as Solomon's Stables, she said that we are certain that a vast amount of important data was lost, especially when the Muslims dug the huge 2,000-square-meter pit in front of the stables and dumped the "'garbage" along with ancient antiquities. She claimed they loaded hundreds of trucks, and said destruction took place mainly in the eastern part of the compound. She added tha regrettably the east part is destroyed forever and has called for there to be no further destruction.

2. On Mar. 29, 2007 the Jerusalem Post published an important article titled: First Temple wall found in City of David.This might be better termed the "remains" of a wall, since the First Temple was destroyed. According to the article Dr. Mazar described a 20-meter-long section of the 7-meter-thick wall that has now been uncovered. She claims it indicates that the City of David once served as a major government center. Also Dr. Mazar estimates that less than a quarter of the entire wall has been uncovered so far. Dr. Mazar also claims that it is the largest site from King David's time ever to have been discovered. Chrisbak 02:16, 16 April 2007 (UTC)

"Approach" section unnecessary[edit]

This is just a little hit-piece of people whining about Mazar's worldview. Nothing in it is particularly noteworthy. 72.95.92.54 (talk) 16:38, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

And whining (to use your language) about this article being written according to our WP:NPOV policy won't get you anywhere. Mazar has his critics and we recognise that in his article. Dougweller (talk) 18:15, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
