mamillaWe’re keeping an eye on the petition drive to stop the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s plan to turn an ancient Muslim cemetery in Jerusalem into a "Museum of Tolerance." Well at left is a photo of the Mamilla cemetery (taken by the Al-Aqsa Association for Waqf and Heritage, Israel). 

Dennis Loh of the petitioners says that this photo is near the eastern wall of the cemetery and shows "old stones and internal walls (and possibly tombs) of the excavated cemetery." Other photos show that bulldozers are freely roaming the old cemetery. And you wonder why people object to single religious sovereignty of Jerusalem…
