Publicity from archeological digs highlights religious conflicts

An AP story from yesterday suggests that a dig in Jerusalem is controversial because the archeologists in question are only publicizing findings that relate to civilizations existing under Jewish control.

The article mentions that representatives of the foundation sponsoring the dig explicitly claim to have Zionist aspirations, giving credence to the Palestinian fear that results from the dig will be used as justification for taking over the land.
