The report documents a new archaeological discovery that revealed a brass weight weighing about 160 grams.It was found in Sussita during excavations organized by the University of Haifa, he wrote.
But the brass weight, dating to the 7th century, “contained a surprise.”
“More or less by chance, we discovered a stain covering the cross on the obverse of the weight,” Michael Eisenberg, of the university research team, said.
He’s head of the Hippos-Sussita excavations, and told the Jerusalem Post, “At first we were convinced that it was just dirt, but in fact the stain was made deliberately to conceal a cross, a Christian religious symbol used by the Christian population, so that they could continue to use the weight in their contacts with the new Muslim rulers. This is the first time that we have found a weight featuring this type of concealed element.”
The relic was found by Bradley Bowlin using a metal detector and was forwarded to Alexander Lermolin of the Conservation Laboratory at Haifa University’s Archaeological Institute.
He discovered under a dark stain was a cross inlaid in silver.

If British authorities had any concern for the survival of their nation as a free society, they would be studying the combination of factors in British society that led to the trajectory of Samantha Lewthwaite’s life. They would be examining the appeal of Islam to contemporary Britons, the phenomenon of conversion to Islam, why so many converts to Islam turn to treason and mass murder, why British citizens convert so freely to Islam without considering the implications, and related issues. But they wouldn’t dream of doing this. It would be “Islamophobic.”

Christianity CRACKDOWN: Crisis in Nigeria as THOUSANDS killed in ‘pure GENOCIDE,’” by Joey Millar, Express, June 30, 2018 (thanks to the Geller Report):
THOUSANDS of men, women and children have been killed in Nigeria in what the country’s Christian community are condemning as “ethnic cleansing”.
Last weekend 238 Christians were killed in a number of attacks by militia in Plateau State, a region in the heart of the country.
Campaigners are warning it is just the latest example of “pure genocide” in a country ravaged by religious division.
A joint statement issued by the Christian Association of Nigeria said more than 6,000 Christian worshippers – “mostly children, women and the aged” – had already been killed this year.
They said: “There is no doubt that the sole purpose of these attacks is aimed at ethnic cleansing, land grabbing and forceful ejection of the Christian natives from their ancestral land and heritage.
“What is happening in Plateau state and other select states in Nigeria is pure genocide and must be stopped immediately.”
They said those responsible were being allowed to “go scot free” and said the Nigerian government was wrongly trying to paint the attacks as “farmers/herdsmen clashes”.

Residents say tensions were high as harassment in the area around the park has been particularly bad the past couple of moths [sic] — including previous attacks by a gang of Somali kids at Kennedy Park
. Word had spread about an anticipated fight that was going to erupt at the park Tuesday evening. So, a group of friends gathered looking for retribution. From witness reports it does sound like some members of the group had been drinking.
