Jordan did ask Canada to seize the 2,000-year-old Dead Sea scrolls, who were on display at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto.
While confirming that Canada has received a message from Jordan, a spokesperson for the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Thursday gave this public statement:
«Differences regarding ownership of the Dead Sea scrolls should be addressed by Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian Authority. It would not be appropriate for Canada to intervene as a third party».
The ancient Hebrew scrolls, discovered in 1947, were part of one of the greatest archeological discoveries of the 20th century. The scrolls had been hidden in caves to hide them from the Romans. Israel argues that all the scrolls in its possession are part of the Jewish heritage.

Its amazing what not the enemies of God of the Bible is willing to do in a bid to nullify or delete the evidence that the Bible is the truth.
Jordan should have rejoiced over the Dead Sea Scroll, that prove that the Jews are the people of the Book. In one of the scrolls, there was almost a full book of Isaiah. The ancient hand written manuscript is almost 98 per cent the duplicate text that is found in todays Hebrew Bible.
But the Muslims in the Kingdom of Jordan do not rejoice over such findings. Because it displays the ultimate superiority of the Bible over the Koran. In a bid to get the Dead Sea Scrolls locked down in a Islamic library, the Jordanian Government wants to confiscate this important Biblical document.
Jordan`s claim to this ancient scriptures is baseless, what ever request there might be.
The area where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found in 1947 was controlled by the United Kingdom, based on a United Nation mandate. This document is a property of the World, and the state of Israel, the home of Judaism, is the only correct caretaker.
