What the hell?

The Simon Wiesenthal Center is building a "Museum of Tolerance" on a Muslim graveyard. Ok, there has GOT to be more to this story, but if there isn't, then it's pretty crystal clear that this is a HORRIBLE idea. It's a Museum of Tolerance, aimed at promoting interfaith understanding and respect, and you're desecrating a graveyard to build it? I'm sorry, I don't buy the excuse that there are archeological and historical remains everywhere in Jerusalem. Surely there's a location that isn't a graveyard actively visited by people with relatives in it? This...just isn't right.
