    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Netorei Karta is a sect that does not recognise the state of Israel. Such a state can only be established when the Messiah returns, they say. Therefore the present republic constitutes a blasphemy.

    Background: Members of an ultra-orthodox Jewish sect, the Netorei Karta, staged a noisy protest rally at an archeological dig in Jerusalem on July 27. They say the excavation is on the site of an ancient Jewish burial site, and accuse the archeologists of committing acts of desecration. There has been a long series of protests at this site. Some of them have had to be broken up by police. This one passed off without violence, under the watchful eyes of riot police, some on horseback, and armed soldiers. The archeologists are continuing their dig in spite of the protests. They say it is a matter for the police to deal with. But they deny they are digging on an ancient Jewish cemetery. Bones being found on the site cannot be identified as Jewish, they say, and anyway, the location just outside the ancient city walls indicates it was not a burial site during ancient times.
