A-G promises to help preserve antiquities - Leaders of the Committee Against Destruction of Antiquities on the Temple Mount met yesterday with Attorney-General Elyakim Rubinstein, who promised to do everything within his power to prevent the destruction of antiquities.
 
The meeting came less than 48 hours after the committee sent an urgent letter to Prime Minister Ehud Barak asking him to stop any further Wakf construction on the Temple Mount.
 
Reserve Maj-Gen. Meir Dagan, who served as counter-terrorism advisor to both Barak and former prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu, and who was one of the signatories to the letter, said that “the argument that any action taken to prevent illegal construction from being carried out will ignite the Moslems is simply nonsense.”
