Objective Study - Jordanian Style

Dr. Omar Ghul, an epigrapher from Yarmouk University, recently declared the following:

“Besides being part of the global cultural heritage, the Dead Sea Scrolls represent an essential component of the religious and cultural heritage of Palestine and Jordan...An objective study of these texts would help us better understand the historical roots of the three main religions of the region... and the relationships between them.” 

What is needed is an objective study of the texts, “away from any agendas that seek to use these ancient texts to claim modern religious and political rights on the ground, in Palestine and in the region”

I checked.  While "Hebrew" is mentioned, "Jews" or "Jewish" are not.

"Objective study"?
