"Western Wall compromise" update

TEMPLE MOUNT WATCH: 'They have turned the site into a pile of garbage.' Noted archaeologist Dr. Eilat Mazar describes the severity of damage caused by construction of 'egalitarian' prayer space at Western Wall (Hezki Baruch, Arutz Sheva).
The Knesset Education Committee held a meeting today regarding damage caused to important archaeological findings as a result of construction aimed at creating an “egalitarian” prayer space at the Western Wall to cater to demands of the Reform Movement.

Speaking with Arutz Sheva, respected Jerusalem archaeologist Dr. Eilat Mazar who excavated the Ophel area nearby described the severity of damage already caused, and efforts to stop the construction so as to prevent future damage.

Includes a video interview with Dr. Mazar in Hebrew.
