    Default Jerusalem Museum Of Tolerance Built On Muslim Graves

    The museum, being built atop an ancient Muslim cemetery, is a project of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, whose founder Rabbi Marvin Hier envisions the museum as a "great landmark promoting the principles of mutual respect and social responsibility." The site had been a cemetery for at least one thousand years, and building required the excavation of peoples’ remains.

    Others have expressed concern over the focus of the museum on tolerance amongst Jews, rather than tolerance between Jews and Arabs.
    Winner. The idea of building a religion specific Museum of Tolerance is oxmoronic. The idea of doing it in the centre of Jerusalem on top of Muslim graves is just plain moronic. Ghery pulled out of this last year btw.
    I'm living in America, and in America, you're on your own. America's not a country. It's just a business. Now f***ing pay me.

    This Museum is the perfect embodiment of Israel's double-standards on "tolerance".

    This Muslim graveyard is an act of deception. I posted about this a few weeks ago. It's an act of fraud by Islamic officials. They erected over 300 false graves/tombstones in an attempt to steal state land. This 'graveyard' hasn't been used in nearly 100 years and the only thing bothering these Islamic officials is that a Jewish based organisation is going to use it to build a museum. And yet they had no problem using this 'graveyard' before the state of Israel came into being to build “a six-storey building to house the Supreme Muslem Council and other offices, a four-storey hotel, a bank and other buildings suitable for it, a college, a club and a factory” directly over the cemetery" back in 1945. They didn't care then that it was an old cemetery. Their only issue is that Jews are building on it. Tolerance and mutual respect isn't even in the vocabulary of these Muslim officials. They wouldn't know what mutual respect is.......especially when it comes to Jews

    The Simon Wiesenthal Centre has no connection to Simon Wiesenthal at all. It's owned by the Hillal family of dubious provenance after Wiesenthal imagined that they'd continue his work. Some hope.

    Don't they? They always get mentioned in news articles whenever some octogenarian German is hauled out of a retirement home to face war-crimes charges.

    You're unbelievable; the double standards are breathtaking. Take this case of an old Jewish cemetery, last used about 500 years ago. Building was proposed but condemned by Jewish groups; surprise, surprise, even the US Foreign Affairs Committee were quick to make their disapproval known.

    Could it be the hormones in the beef that makes you so aggresive?

    +1`The Israelis are taking their cue from the Germans who destroyed some of their cemetries during WW2. As ever, the Zionists are treating others as their relatives were treated. They re-enact Guernica every few weeks in Gaza....

    If a graveyard exists, it doesnt stop existing after 100 years. Your post is the real fraud.
