Washington Lobbyist Approves Buying Syrian Antiquities?

On his Cultural property Observer blog, IAPN and PNG representaive Peter Tompa has published a text opposing the repatriation of artefacts looted by ISIL to Syria and approves a comment apparently advocating buying these antiquities: “Is it not a better option to welcome those artifacts onto the market where they will be preserved and cosseted in private collections and possibly museums?”. This  is simply irresponsible and inappropriate.
