Israelis warned: Watch U.N. over ownership of Dead Sea Scrolls

Qumran. ( Mark Karis, copyright 2017

A United Nations agency already has insisted on calling Jerusalem’s Temple Mount, considered the site of the historic Jewish temples of biblical times, “Islamic.”

It’s ascribed to “Palestine” Bethlehem’s Church of the Nativity, the site of the ancient Jewish fortress at Betar and Hebron’s Tomb of the Patriarchs.

Now an expert is warning that the Palestinians’ next target for claim of ownership likely will be Qumran and the Dead Sea Scrolls that were found there.

The Jerusalem Post reported the warning comes from Shimon Samuels of the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

He spoke at the Global Forum for Combating Antisemitism in Jerusalem during a panel on the denial of Jewish history.
