    The so-called Museum of Tolerance" is being built on one of the most famous Muslim cemeteries in the world, which reportedly includes the graves of tens of thousands of Salah-el-din's warriors, yet has been used recently. This is at a time when ultra-Orthodox activists attempted to halt the construction of a Jewish hospital due to the mistaken belief that one or two pagan graves found during excavation are Jewish graves.I can remember the Center attempting to raise money on the basis of a claim that Switzerland held Jews in concentration camps during WW II, and refused to drop that falsehood even after Simon Wiesenthal and Swiss Jews asked them to stop spreading that false claim. I received a fund-raising appeal based on the Swiss claim months after the Center promised Wiesenthat that they would stop making that false claim.
