Israeli scientists have found archaeological evidence of mass slaughter committed by the Romans during the destruction of the Jerusalem temple in the year 70 of our era, which completely fall under the description made by the historian Josephus and a prophecy of Jesus Christ in the gospel that Jerusalem «will not be one stone left on stone».

The Israeli press has called the opening «a slap in the face of UNESCO», which condemned Israel for the «occupation of the Eastern part of Jerusalem.» In a resolution tabled by the Arab group, called Israel the occupying power and its ongoing excavations and other work in East Jerusalem, including the Old town, condemned as a violation of international law. The Israeli authorities criticized the document.

Israel declared Jerusalem its «United and indivisible» capital, including its Eastern areas and the historic center, occupied during the 1967 war and later annexed. The international community does not recognize the annexation and considers the status of the city one of the core problems of the middle East conflict which should be resolved on the basis of an agreement with the Palestinians, claiming at least part of Jerusalem.
