The argument against infant sacrifice in the article seems long on conjecture and short on facts. They even argue the Carthaginians wouldn’t waste precious wood on infant sacrifices despite the evidence the bodies were indeed cremated.

I wholeheartedly agree. Those who deny infant sacrifice among the Phoenicians have some kind of agenda, and it probably has to do with the instructions from the local political authorities. Same thing happened with Egypt’s “no slavery in ancient Egypt” requirement. And that one’s clearly ridiculous — “oh, look, we found dozens of bakeries to feed the workers who built the Giza pyramids — that means they weren’t slaves.” Complete stupidity.
