Biblical History Artifacts Falling Prey to Looters

first_imgThe plunder of antiquities in Iraq and Israel continues, forever diminishing the ability of archaeologists to recreate the Biblical past, say Newsweek reporters Melinda Liu and Christopher Dickey in MSNBC News.  Neither the new government in Iraq nor coalition troops are able to guard the many sites at which looters, in full daylight, dig up treasures thousands of years old to sell to collectors.  Even if recovered, items have limited value without the context in which they were found.  With no solution in sight, the article ends on an apocalyptic note:For believers contemplating the rise of the looters, lines from the Revelation of Saint John the Divine may come to mind: “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen.”  For archeologists, for the faithful, for all of us, the loss of this past impoverishes the future.  Ripping artifacts from their contexts takes away the last chance we have to know those civilizations—from the world of Abraham to that of Nebuchadnezzar—that gave us our own.In Iraq, many of the looters are poor people just trying to support their families.  The little they get is multiplied once the artifacts reach the antiquities market, where some may end up on a collector’s mantle.  In Israel, ongoing violence often makes archaeological work impossible, despite “a rising tide of funds for Bible-related projects.” Where is Indiana Jones when we need him?  This article raises awareness of a very real problem that demands action.  But who is at fault?  The political bias of the writers is hardly veiled.  “In Israel, much care is taken to preserve the slightest trace that might reveal literal truths about the mystical teachings of scripture,” they say; much care is taken by whom?  Why not identify the good guys?  It is not the Palestinians who cast precious artifacts down the Kidron Valley and try to destroy evidences that might support Israel’s history in the land (see this Jerusalem Post article, for instance).  What “mystical” teachings of Scripture do they have in mind, as contrasted with “literal truths” that an archaeologist might discover?  An artifact is literal, but its interpretation requires a philosophy of history that can have many political, moral and theological components.  They seem unaware that their philosophy colors their own interpretation of the Genesis account: thus they call the Temptation and the Fall “myths”.    The authors fail to mention the atrocious acts of the former Iraqi dictator, and only speak of “the fall of Hussein” without mentioning who made him fall, as if he fell over by himself.  If it weren’t for the American coalition toppling him, Hussein would still be in power, flooding dozens of important sites with the Tigris River (see 03/22/2002 headline).  It also gives negative press to coalition forces, saying “coalition forces sometimes make matters worse,” selectively reporting one incident.  They allege an American military base moved earth “potentially rich in relics” at the Babylon site while building protective walls, without giving the officer in charge a chance to respond about what exactly he was doing and why.  The authors say nothing about the many extraordinary efforts the American soldiers have taken to preserve antiquities despite being shot at by anti-democratic Muslim terrorists and Saddam loyalists.    The authors also fail to point the finger at the real problem in Israel.  Look at this biased sentence: “In Israel, a rising tide of funds for Bible-related projects is flowing into Jerusalem and its environs [from whom?], but archeology is an overlooked casualty of the intifada: the violence has cut down the number of active digs.”  Who is causing the violence but Muslim terrorists?  What is the intifada but Palestinian Arabs intent on the destruction of Israel, the only democratic government in the region that supports archaeology?  Who, on the constructive side, is giving money and promoting the scientific exploration of archaeological sites, but Israeli, British and American archaeologists?  The authors write as if “the violence” is just a fact of life, like rainfall.  If you cannot identify the problem, you cannot begin to identify a solution.    The authors could have focused on solutions rather than wailing Biblical words out of context.  Why not promote the peace and prosperity of the new democratic government in Iraq, so that the poor have good jobs that can reduce the desperation that makes getting a quick buck in looting attractive?  Why not make sure that programs like “oil for food” actually get to the poor, instead of lining the pockets of dictators and U.N. officials?  Why not promote the free and open access of scientific archaeological teams to the sites that Hussein long kept off limits?  Why not severely punish convicted looters and dealers to set an example?  Blaming the freedom-loving governments who have sacrificed the most blood, given the most money, and taken the most positive action to bring a peaceful environment for archaeologists is not helping find the solution to a very real problem.  We have a suggestion.  Send Newsweek reporters to Iraq to perform an archaeological dig on the mass graves.(Visited 12 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Protect and support each other

(Image: Enoch Lehung, City of Joburg) Ahead of Youth Day, Sam Nzima urges the young people of South Africa to protect and support each other. (Images: SouthAfrica.info) MEDIA CONTACTS • Kwezi Gule  Curator for the Hector Pieterson Museum   +271 725 3130 RELATED ARTICLES • Youth Day: lessons from 1976 • Playing a part to give youth a future • Let’s learn and honour Children’s Act • How does Mandela Day inspire you?Cadine Pillay“Take back your courage!” declares Sam Nzima, former apartheid photojournalist, urging young people of South Africa to assume the strength and courage of their predecessors. Nzima took the legendary photograph of the fatally wounded 12-year-old Hector Pieterson being carried by Mbuyisa Makhubo, while Hector’s sister Antoinette Sithole runs alongside. It is a photograph that captured and exposed not just the Soweto uprising on 16 June 1976, but the entire struggle of black people during apartheid.That event is commemorated on the annual Youth Day, 16 June, and the whole month around the day is focused on strategies to develop and uplift South Africa’s young people.The government’s theme for Youth Month 2012 – Together we can do more to build infrastructure and fight youth unemployment – is an ambitious one, but conveys hope to many South Africans who recognise the struggles that were overcome.Ahead of the countrywide celebrations, Nzima conveys a message to young South Africans in his gripping and courageous story, and carefully reflects on the events of that fateful day.June 16, 1976 revisitedNzima, 78, is a warm-spirited man who remembers that day as if it were yesterday.“I will never forget that day in Soweto,” he says with candour in his voice. “It is in my blood and now part of me.”On 16 June 1976, thousands of South African schoolchildren marched in protest of the so-called Bantu Education system – the rest is history.  Nzima arrived in Soweto early that morning, assigned to cover what he thought would be peaceful protests.“I thought it would just be an ordinary day,” he says. “I had no idea it would be a day that would go down in the history books of South Africa, or that a child would be killed.“The students were just going to protest their rights and take a memorandum of demands to the education department,” he recalls and then pauses. “They did not even reach their destination.”Nzima watched from a distance as students painted signs that said “Afrikaans must be abolished” and “We are being fed the crumbs of education” – at the time black students were forced to study a sub-standard curriculum and were taught in Afrikaans, the language that, to them, represented their oppressor.As they began marching, the students were confronted by the police and began to sing “Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika” – the national anthem of South Africa today, but a protest song that was banned back then.The police began shooting, and Nzima saw a boy fall. The tall Mbuyisa Makhubo, then just 18, quickly picked him up and began to run. Nzima took six pictures as the wounded boy was taken to the nearest car, driven by a colleague from his newspaper, and rushed to a clinic. There, he was pronounced dead and identified as Pieterson.Nzima, working at a time when restrictions on reporting on conflict were draconian, removed the film and hid it in his sock. Later, police forced him to expose the film in his camera, but the photos of Pieterson were safe.Pieterson was one of the first to die from police gunfire after Soweto students were ordered to disperse. Reports varied on the number of people killed – some say about 180, others 400. Trials of the man behind the photographThe police were enraged by the attention his photograph drew, and Nzima left Johannesburg and his newspaper, fearing for his life. For a long time he lived under house arrest, and was constantly harassed by the police. But his photograph continued to garner attention and would later go right around the world.Nzima now enjoys a peaceful existence in his hometown of Lillydale in Mpumalanga, where he is a humble community leader.Although he was honoured on Freedom Day 2011 with a National Order for his contribution to photojournalism and for exposing apartheid brutality, the fame the photograph has brought him is equally matched with loss as it resulted in the end of his career, and banishment from Johannesburg, to live in abject poverty.Despite these unfortunate circumstances, Nzima does not regret the path fate chose for him that day.“At first I hated the picture, because I thought I would be killed for taking it,” he says. “But even though it was the end of my journalism career and my life in Johannesburg, it gave back so much tenfold.”Nzima’s photograph tells a courageous story because it has lived for over three decades and made its way to the 18-year-old democratic South Africa.“You don’t even need a caption to see that something terrible has happened,” Nzima says, describing his photograph.The heartfelt photograph has received worldwide recognition over the years and has even been honoured in the Hector Pieterson Schule in Berlin – a school named after the young victim.“I’m happy that the Germans saw the opportunity to name one of their high schools after Pieterson,” Nzima says. “This means the picture I took left its mark on them as well.”Nzima wishes to one day open a photojournalism school of his own for young people. He hopes in turn they will go out and take truthful photos of history that the whole world will see and remember.‘Young people must carry each other’Nzima’s advice to teenagers and young adults of today is clear as it is in his photograph – young people must carry each other.“Every day is a struggle for young people today and that is all the more reason they should protect and support each other,” he says.Back then, Nzima reflects, young people were so eager to learn that they fought for it.“Today’s youth do not appreciate their freedom because they did not struggle for it. It was given to them and therefore they do not know the worth.“If protesting students did not take into their own hands the fight for their right to education 36 years ago, the youngsters of today would not enjoy their freedom and education.“Fighting for a better education is not something that is demonstrated these days by the younger generation. Today, they have so much of freedom that they are fighting HIV/AIDS, alcohol and drug abuse and rape instead.”Nzima remembers the restrictions black people had during apartheid.“We could not even enter a grocery store. If we wanted to buy groceries we had to purchase them through the windows in the back. We could not walk around freely and do as we please because of those restrictions.”‘Take back your courage’“Take back your courage”, is the message from Nzima.“The respect of the younger generation must be strengthened, and at the same time children must be guided,” he asserts.Every year the children of South Africa are born further away from 1976, and memories of those long-ago Sowetan students are fleeting. The country has just one day a year to recreate and remember, and educate young people on the sacrifices that were made so they could enjoy free and equal education.“They need to learn about June 16 and the Soweto massacre every day, not just one day a year,” Nzima says.Although the history of apartheid and the Soweto Uprising are taught in schools across South Africa, it is imperative for young people to acknowledge the sacrifices made for them, in every aspect of their lives today – not by force or obligation, but out of willingness, respect and appreciation.While some still suffer the aftermath of apartheid, we can take comfort in knowing that today every child is born into a free South Africa with the right to education.Former president Nelson Mandela said: “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”It is important, says Nzima, for the young people to remember how far we all have come and recognise the people who helped get us here. Most importantly we must remember – much like back then – that the courage of the youth ensures the victory of our country.last_img read more
