Preserving the Biblical Times

I know that it is not really news that there might be damage to a wall in Jerusalem that might date back to the Bible; I just don't know why the International Herald Tribune, Reuters India, and the BBC News think it is. While any potential Israel/Palestinian spark seems to be news, it is precisely this kind of "Muslims are destroying something from the Bible" that has muddled the Western understanding of the conflict.
