*A Museum of Tolerance built on top of a Muslim Cemetery in Jerusalem?
Hard to Believe?  ***

*It must be stopped!!!!*

*Join the Campaign*

October 29, 2008

*Can you even imagine the possibility of the State of Israel and the
Jerusalem municipality building a Museum of Tolerance on the site of a
Muslim Cemetery in the heart of Jerusalem? Well it is happening.  We tried
to fight it in court but we lost.  Imagine what would happen if someone in
Europe – in Germany or Austria for instance, tried to build a Museum of
Tolerance on top of Jewish graves.***

*The legal battle has been lost, now we must move on to the political
battle.  We must prevent this museum from being built on that site.
Jerusalem will never be a city of peace if this is allowed to move
forward. *

*Jerusalem** is the one city in the world where there is a real potential
to demonstrate that Jews, Christians and Muslims can live together in
peace, understanding and real tolerance.  Jerusalem is the place where we
can learn to celebrate the diversities of our civilizations. If the
construction of this museum is allowed to resume on top of a Muslim
cemetery of religious and historical importance in the center of
Jerusalem, this Holy city, will never realize its potential.*

*For the peace of Jerusalem, for the chance of peace, understanding and
tolerance between Jews, Muslims and Christians we must stop this dangerous
act.*

*We call on the Government of Israel and the Municipality of Jerusalem**
to stop the construction of the Wiesenthal Museum of Tolerance in name of
public safety and in protection of the reputation of the State of Israel
and the safety of Jews all around the world.  *

*We call on Jerusalemites,** Israelis and Palestinians to join our
campaign. *

*We call on the candidates for Mayor of Jerusalem and for the Jerusalem
City Council** to speak out during the remaining days of the campaign –
promise us that you won’t let this Museum be built in the Mamilla
Cemetery.*

*We call on the Chief Rabbis of Israel ** not to let this shame on Judaism
take place. In the name of Judaism, do not allow this Museum to built on
top of Muslim graves. *

*We call on Israelis and Palestinians** alike to send letters to your
Presidents, Prime Ministers and Foreign Ministers urging them to stop the
construction of the Museum in that location.*

*We call on Jews all over to write to the Wiesenthal Center Director Rabbi
Hier **urging him to change the location of the Museum.  We urge Jews
everywhere to write to the Government of Israel voice your objection to
building a Museum of Tolerance on top of Muslim graves.*

*We call on Rabbis around the world** to join the campaign.  We are
looking for several Rabbis who will coordinate organizing a Rabbis letter
against the building of the Museum over Muslim graves.*

*We call on citizens of the world to join the campaign** – raise your
voices, – write to your own governments urging them to pressure the
Israeli government to cease the construction of the Museum in that
location.*
