Heated Debate over Aquisition of Westen Wall Portions


A heated debate took place in the Knesset on Wednesday during a discussion on a foundation's acquisition of portions of the Western Wall in Jerusalem. The Ir David Foundation, which oversees the Ir David archeological park is seeking to maintain parts of Robinson’s Arch and other lesser used portions that run along the Western Wall near the well-known Western Wall plaza in Jerusalem's Old City. According to their website, "the Ir David Foundation (Amutat EL-AD), a non-profit organization established in 1986, is dedicated to the preservation and development of the Biblical City of David and its environs."
