Well, that is their goal, folks; it is the goal of Muslims to deny to the world any evidence that Jews did indeed build and live within and next to their religious holy sites. Why do Muslims do that? So as to confound and confuse the rest of the world into believing the mendacious premise that only arabs lived in Israel, and that Jews were just invaders. From Archaeologists: Muslim Dig Damaged Temple Wall:
A month-old Islamic dig on Jerusalem's Temple Mount to replace faulty electrical cables has damaged an ancient wall that is likely a remnant of the Second Temple, Israeli archaeologists said Thursday. Among the antiquities that have been damaged are a 7-meter-wide wall that apparently dates back to Second-Temple times and was likely part of the Temple courts, according to Israeli archaeologists from the nonpartisan Committee Against the Destruction of Antiquities on the Temple Mount. Hebrew University archaeologist Dr. Eilat Mazar said that the Temple Mount had become "one big construction site."
