Dead Scrolls may be Palestinian

Jordan has filed a claim for the Dead Sea Scrolls with UNESCO. The claim is based on the fact that Israel seized the scrolls from an East Jerusalem museum during the Six-Day War.

Though Jordan occupied East jerusalem illegally from 1948 to 1967, and thus has no legitimate claim to the scrolls, a Palestinian claim for them would be very strong. If East Jerusalem falls to a Palestinian state, Israel will have to transfer the scrolls to our Arab enemies.

In the mayhem of peace negotiations everyone would likely forget to obtain a Palestinian agreement to transfer the scrolls to Israel.

They need the scrolls in order to destroy them, like any other trace of Jewish historical item.
