The Samaritans Try and Halt the Work of the Temple

Today I read Ezra 5 where the Samaritans write a letter to King Darius of Persia  in order to stop the Jews from completing the temple.  Once you read the Old Testament, it's really no surprise that the Jews in the time of Jesus Christ really hate the Samaritans.  I mean here they are they sabotaged the building of the temple, now they are acting like a 5 year old running to tell mom and dad if you will on big brother and what he is doing to get him in trouble.  It's really sad that they could not help the Jews in their efforts and save thousands of years of bad blood between the two cultures.  Until tomorrow.
