Sounds good right? Sounded good to me.
They are building a Museum of Tolerance in Jerusalem. That’s great. That is defenitely one of the places on the planet Earth where people should get to grips with tolerance, integration and plain ”live and let live”.
There’s just a little snag…
The site they so delicately chose to build this monument to Tolerance on just happens to be an ancient muslim cemetary.
That’s right, the Israelis, always the first in line to start any big hullabaloo and crying out to heaven every time the slightest damage is done to some abandoned Jewish grave in Europe, have no qualms about erasing and destroying a whole cemetary in their own Jerusalem when it suits them…
Oh, did I tell you it is a muslim cemetary?
I suppose it’s a whole different thing if it’s a muslim cemetary….
Hypocritical crap like this really pisses me off!
And to claim ”the mission to promote civility and respect among different segments of the Jewish community and between people of all faiths.” is utter crap after you read which site they’ve so considerately chosen to build it on.
The only good which will ever come of this hypocritical atrocity is that is proving to be a bonding agent for Muslims and Jews who have started a joint initiative to fight the building of the museum. Unfortunately the ”clearing out” of the cemetary has allready started. End of last year the Israeli Supreme Court ruled that the Simon Wiesenthal Foundation can go ahead and build the museum.
I predict that this foundation will be a very precarious one from the very start of it’s build. I wouldn’t be surprised if it never will be a secure stronghold for tolerance and respect.
