Seventeen years ago digging was started just across from my home in Northern Jerusalem to lay a foundation for an overpass bridge that was being built. A few weeks into the project, some ancient graves were uncovered. Archeologists were called in and it was determined that these graves were of Jewish origin dating back to the First Temple Period.
Within minutes of these ‘findings’ hundreds of ultra orthodox Jews began assembling at the site. Shortly afterwards there was an angry mob determined to make sure the graves would not be desecrated. The archeologists were keen on moving them to a museum to be put on display. The ‘mob’ would not allow that to happen.
In another part of Jerusalem, work is under way today to build a ‘Museum of Tolerance and Human Dignity’…. on the site of a Muslim cemetery. Relatives of the deceased have gone as far as petitioning the United Nations to find an alternate site. A number of human remains have already been crushed and destroyed during construction, but the city Fathers have turned a deaf ear to the protests of the living relatives, unwilling to even discuss the matter with them.
The museum is meant to be a tool to educate the locals in Tolerance and Human Dignity. It has, so far, only demonstrated the arrogance of zionism and its contempt for humanity. Only Jews have a say about anything in the so called Jewish State…. even if they are dead.
