Father enlists 4 kids to unearth ‘treasure’ from Second Temple period protected by ‘demon’

A Palestinian father from Jerusalem, claiming to be an exorcist, was arrested early Wednesday morning – along with four of his children and a family friend – for illegally entering and digging in a cave from the Second Temple period near the Hebrew University on Mount Scopus.

According to the Israel Antiquities Authority’s Unit for the Prevention of Antiquities Robbery, the unidentified father, from east Jerusalem’s Isawiya neighborhood, told his brood that a demon residing in the cave kept a buried treasure there that he wanted to procure.

Shortly after the six breached the protected cave, members of the IAA’s robbery prevention unit found them endangering the archeological site by using digging equipment in an attempt to find the purported treasure.
