If you believe that Jews don’t have a right to a homeland in Israel then please take a look at the following and then explain why the Dead Sea Scrolls are in Hebrew and not in Arabic!
The world-famous Dead Sea Scrolls which were until now were only available at Israel’s National Museum went online yesterday September 26 2011!
And that’s 2,000 years after they were written, and decades after having being found in desert caves by Bedouin shepherds in the Judean Desert, from whom they were purchased by Israeli researchers between 1947 and 1967.
Google’s specialised technology now allows surfers to search the scrolls for specific passages and also translate them into English and Google is also working with Israel to make the first comprehensive and searchable database of an even bigger collection of the scrolls.
Now, anyone around the world can view, read and interact with five digitized Dead Sea Scrolls.
The high resolution photographs are up to 1,200 megapixels, almost 200 times more than the average consumer camera, so viewers can see even the most minute details in the parchment.
The scroll text is also discoverable via web search, and if you search for phrases from the scrolls, a link to that text within the scroll viewers on the Dead Sea Scrolls collections site may surface in your search results.
