While riots take place over the transfer of a couple of Byzantine graves near Barzilai Hospital so that a bigger emergency ward can be built there, flagrant disregard of all decency regarding the more recent dead takes place in the heart of Jerusalem, because it reminds us that Muslims die among us just as Jews and Christians do. I took a couple of people past that site recently, one Israeli and one from abroad. They didn't know Muslim graves had been removed in order to build a tolerance museum on that site. Both said they would not enter any place that was built on a graveyard (little do they know.....), neither have they ever heard about this long-running story in their Jewish press (francophone - the largest Jewish community in Europe). Why was their media silent?
