Beroe 1948 the Old City of Jerusalem was predominently Jewish and the JEwish cemetery was on the Mt. od Olives. The first thing the Jordanians did when it took over the Old City (Israel lost that battle) was to remove all the Jewish residents of the eastern part of Jerusalem and destroy all the synogogues, numbering almost 20 and all other signs of Jewish life. They then used the headstone from the cemetrey to build the Jordanian Legion's latrines. Religious freedom and the protection of Holy Sites of all religions in Israel is etched in Israeli law.
