While I normally think that artifacts belonging to a civilization should be kept, in trust, by their modern decendents, sometimes it is simply stupid to "repatriate" these items.  I mean, these really belong to all of mankind - a shared history.  And if a country/people can't reasonably protect said treasures, then they should be kept by a people who can care for them.  The middle east and Egypt have lost so much in the last few years, lost as in completely or mostly destroyed that I would be damned if I would send a single artifact back into any of those countries until that area has settled down and can act like reasonable, responsible people and can show us they aren't going to be looted or destroyed...
