Tablets of the Law Discovered in Sinai?

I could hardly believe what I was reading in First Person (“Should Israel Return the Tablets of the Law to Egypt?BAR 38:05). Have the original Tablets of the Law been found and kept secret, forgotten in a university vault? That seems hardly credible! Why hasn’t it hit the headlines?

How Did It Manage to Be Kept Secret?

Is the report on finding the Ten Commandments for real? Why are the archaeologists who made the discovery not named? What university were they from? How was such a potentially important find kept secret this long, and how did the Egyptians find out about it?
