Report from Isreal: Antiquities Still There for the Buying

Some archaeological commentators imply that antiquities trading in the Middle East is forbidden, but while this may be true in places like Egypt, Syria and Iraq, this is certainly not true in democracies like Israel and Lebanon.  Indeed,  CPO's "eyes and ears" in the Middle East, Arthur Houghton, reports that loads of antiquities are still there for the buying in places like the Old City of Jerusalem.  So, by all means, next time CPO's readers are in Jerusalem, look, and perhaps buy a piece of history.
