.... in the occupied city of Jerusalem over an ancient Muslim graveyard.

Religious leaders in Jerusalem are warning of dangerous consequences after a decision by Israel's Supreme Court to allow the destruction of part of an ancient Muslim cemetery.

If they only wouldn't claim it to be 'Jewish'. Calling it Israeli Museum of Tolerance would be entirely appropriate though.  Yeah sure

But I would think that there could still be problems if it is on an ancient muslim graveyard site - does the site have any significance?

Though I guess it's hard to avoid religious/historic sites in Jerusalem, isn't there somwhere they can put the museum that won't piss so many people off? This obviously serves as a provocation (rightly or wrongly), and just gives off an impression of being mean-spirited.

I'm just waiting for Israel to elicit some goodwill from me, for such a gesture is long overdue, and I don't see why they just can't play nice, at least in a relatively minor issue such as this. And no, it would not project weakness by showing some freaking decency and leaving a cemetery alone.

Sharansky has a great line.

"If we would have razed the gravesite of one of the founders of Islam, billions of Muslims would have taken to the streets," Sharansky said. "It's inconceivable that the world should not know about this travesty."

Of course but it wouldn't be as big of hypocrisy as it is right now. This is one of those times that makes you think if this is a joke.

Good question. But a better question would be: what the hell does that have to do with this? Are you going to let yourself get sucked into the "eye for an eye" mentality that has done absolutely nothing to advance peace in the region?

Here's your answer: don't get sucked into the cycle.

I agree with the court that there's no legal reason why this museum couldn't be built on that site. But that doesn't make it the right thing to do. It sends a signal that the Israelis will do whatever the hell they want without taking Muslim issues into account. Unless that is the signal that you want to send, in which case you're not making a good case for peace.

In my eyes it is ever since Izz al-Din Shuheil al-Masri struck. You may not know who he is so let me refresh your memory. He killed my cousin while she was getting a piece of pizza in Sbarros on august 9 of 2001. Yes, the famous sbarros bombing.

So don't give me the rolling eye image, don't tell me not to get stuck in the tit-for-tat stage of the middle east. I am in it already. These things matter to me and I am not just some outsider on a aviation message board throwing my opinion in while I have zero involvement like many here.

A criminal act that i do not accept.But if you look inside Palestinians you will find that no family there were immune from loosing a son,brother,cousin,father,uncle etc...
Now do you think tit 4 tat is the answer.And if some Palestinians gangs commit criminal acts does that allow a country like Israel to do the same?Big difference between the two sides.No?

That question is no longer relevant. When there is a direct attack, there must be some kind of response. It is irresponsible for any state charged the with defense of its citizens to simply sit idly by while missiles and bombs show up unannounced in the community to wreak havoc.

What is important is for Israeli policy to address the demographic realities of having an ever-growing Palestinian population: restoring economic viability to their communities, eliminating the undemocratic regulatory barriers to their participation in various points of common society, and committing to good-faith negotiations with regard to disputed lands. Only over time will such measures restore faith and hope among the Palestinian people for a future in which their home and lands are worth living, not dying, for.

The winner-take-all mentality is unacceptable for both parties.

First, the museum's name is "JERUSALEM MUSEUM OF TOLERANCE" and not "Jewish Museum of Tolerance" as misleadingly posted earlier in this thread.

Secondly, the museum is not going to be built "on a Muslim cemetery"; the place had not been used as a cememtery at least since 1948 and a parking lot had been built there in the early 1960s without any objections from Muslim authorities. The ancient cemetery was even declared "abandoned" by Muslim religious authorities in 1964.

Thank you. I would have posted this but I was in the penalty box for a few days.

It's more atrocity propaganda from the usual 'sources'.

Of course all Palestinian blood is cheap to you because of one action of one of the, if that is justified then I am sure Izz al-Din Shuheil al-Masri will have a reason why he thought all the Jewish blood was cheap. Gotta accept both or none, I think I have always made it clear that I don't buy into that, unlike who.

Oh please!!! The name is different than the one posted in the link I gave above, and since the cemetery is no longer used, desecrating the graves is great!

Care to explain to me what legal basis Israel has of holding on to Jerusalem, a land it occupied by force?? On what basis Israel can move ONE brick of that city or expel one native or bring in one foreigner in its place to settle there?? And no quotes from the bible.

You started off with slagging the Jews there fella and attributing bad motives-and you did that without doing some elementary fact checking.

If you care to retract that crock of shit and get real, maybe we can have a discussion. However I do not think it likely.

I don't know how far back your memory goes but I think before 1967 at least half of Jerusalem was Jordanian. If the Jordanians had not let themselves get dragged into yet another war that they couldn't win, it'd be Jordanian yet. It was legitimately occupied by force of arms and as any student of international law could tell you, that's as legitimate a claim as there is in the region.

So there is Jerusalem. Dead people are buried under every building and yes, every parking lot too.

I do not refer to the bible although that is record enough for some folks. I'd point to the works of Flavius Josephus who wrote contemporaneously of Rome's wars against the Jews and the work of numerous archaeologists who've worked all over the region. I'd also point to the mosque everyone's always blabbing about which is built right on top of the foundation stones of the second Temple.

If you want to have a conversation, fine, let's do that.

But that doesn't mean that you get to shovel shit and ask everyone to call it ice cream.

The usual Jews-have-not-the-slightest-right-to-Jerusalem BS. The Jerusalem mufti has recently repeated that Jews have no right whatsoever to even a single stone in Jerusalem, saying that the Temple never existed and was a big lie of the Jews...

"On what basis Israel can move ONE brick of that city" - hmmmm...should we feel astonished to find such a troubling similarity between the mufti's hateful words and this sentence by Bravo45...?


And to answer the above "question": on a political as well as on a legal point of view, the Tolerance Museum will be built on Israeli territory; it is in the western part of Jerusalem, not in the disputed eastern part.

Either Bravo45 does not have the most basic information about the subject he is discussing here, or he considers the whole pre-1967 Israeli territory as "occupied lands"...

Well, athiest though I may be, the Israeli government would classify me as a Jew. After all, I did have my Bar Mitzvah. So I do hope that we can spare any dismissals of my arguments as "anti-semitic."

I find the idea that Israel is building a museum of "Tolerance" to be disgusting and pathetic.

When Israel can treat its Arab citizens with the same tolerance it would like to see extended towards Jews, then I will donate to such a museum myself. Until that day, I consider this nothing more than a sick irony.
