The week before Passover is a time of clean up, everything from Twitter
to cars need to be cleaned.
Until a couple of years ago one of the most neglected eyesores in
Jerusalem was the Mamilla Cemetery, it resembled a garbage dump.
In June 2010 the cemetery got a make-over,
fresh cement was brought in
and mixed for new grave stones
and hundreds of new tombs, which were soon proven to be fake.
One might ask why am I taking time away from Passover preparations,
the Mamilla Cemetery hypocrisy is not new?
Two years ago the Center for Constitutional Right – CCR- initiated the
to stop the building of the Museum of Tolerance.
This past week from New York
the CCR has initiated a new campaign with a new video.
It’s not quality photography, but it is enough to be upsetting.
The picture I had seen on a Tweet was taken from this video
and is spreading in the Arab media world.
It was a warm, sunny spring day in Jerusalem,
so I went to see the new desecration for myself.
The Mamilla Cemetery and the adjacent fenced-off building site
are situated across from Gan Ha’atzmaut, Independence Park.
There were people enjoying the weather and afternoon sun.
Abuse of the Mamilla cemetery was not to be seen.
BDS did not work up a large anti-Israel reaction…
so it seems here we are again…
back to using the Mamilla cemetery to incite against Israel.
