Who are we?

The National Heritage Survey is the first survey of its kind  and in its scope held in the years 2020-21  In order to give a picture of the state of preservation and risk of the national and world heritage sites in the territories of Judea and Samaria. The survey was conducted for the Shiloh Forum by the Coalition for Keepers of the Eternal and the Israel Antiquities Protection Center (IHPC) in a multi-professional and multi-disciplinary team of archaeologists, field explorers and information experts. 


As part of the survey, 365 sites were selected, which include the most important sites for national and world heritage, and the level of preservation and the danger they face from acts of destruction and robbery were measured.The findings of the survey show that one of the biggest heritage disasters in the world is happening before our eyes: 80% of the sites were severely and moderately damaged, including all sites of importance group A, ten of which have either been destroyed or are on the verge of destruction, among them biblical mounds of utmost importance, such as Tel Dotan, Tel Teko, Archilais and Petzalis in the Bekaa, and the Hasmonean desert forts, Sartaba, Aroma and Horkania fortress. Those responsible for the situation are first and foremost the incompetence of the Israeli governments and the almost total lack of a proper response to the tsunami of looting and rampant destruction, and secondly - the Palestinian Authority and European governments that support operations that include the destruction of sites and the erasure of history for the sake of shaping a narrative  of forgetting a heritage, which leaves behind a scorched earth clean of history and heritage.The result: 3,000 years of heritage disappearing in 30 years.


The survey is presented herewith for your reference.

Please, don't just read. were ambassadors. Do everything in your power to stop the destruction and preserve the heritage. So that something remains for future generations.So that the Land of the Bible is not erased.
