Yes indeed:

But when Sanballat, Tobiah, the Arabs, the Ammonites and the people of Ashdod heard that the repairs to Jerusalem’s walls had gone ahead and that the gaps were being closed, they were very angry.
– Nehemiah 4:7

Uncanny, isn’t it?

“Those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it.”
– George Santayana
