Not the First Time US Congressman Denies 1970 Convention

Congressman Steven Israel (D-NY), who now wants to introduce a bill to facilitate the smuggling of looted and other dugup coins into the US, seems to have very little regard for the principles embodied in the 1970 Convention on the Means of Prohibiting and Preventing the Illicit Import, Export and Transfer of Ownership of Cultural Property. He was one of those behind the introduction of a resolution, HR 505, about the archive which the US occupier 'borrowed for conservation' and  is now refusing to send back to where they took it from (wilfully violating not one, but two international conventions).
