Sorry, but whatever the text is pictured here, its certainly not written in 'Hebrew characters.' It might be Judeo-arabic or one of the other languages they are talking about, but the script is Arabic or Persian, not Hebrew.

That's all we need, Israel claiming since alleged Hebrew documents have been found there, they will try to claim Afghanistan as part of Israel.

mn2nice...do you know Jews were living all over the region many centuries before Islam was 'invented'? The founding of Islam coincided with Mohamed and his gang beheading 600 Jews in Medina because they would not pay taxes to him. Islam took quite a bit of it's tenants from Judaism just as Christianity did. It's quite interesting to understand how the roots of middle east religion are intertwined. Make you wonder what the fighting is about...until you realize it is not really about religion, but power.
