It should be noted that Yakov Litzman of United Torah Judaism kept quiet as did the Gerrer Rebbe and most Haredi leaders aside from Rabbi Tuvia Weiss of Edah Haredit. Given Israel's long history there are probably bones in most places and these Byzantine bones will be respectfully reburied in a cemetery. In Gush Katif Jews corpses were removed from their graves and taken into Israel to avoid being desecrated by Arabs. Although Tuvia Weiss himself is a Gaon, the Edah's public behaviour is an ongoing disgrace.
