Desecration of the Mount of Olives Cemetery

The situation is becoming dire on the Mount of Olives cemetery where Arabs are frequently vandalizing, burning and destroying Jewish tombstones.

Arabs from neighboring areas are breaking into the Mount of Olives cemetery where they are vandalizing graves, destroying tombstones and causing widespread destruction.

This criminal behavior should not be tolerated and cannot be condoned in any way. The land was purchased by Jews prior to 1948. The Afghanistan Jewish section seems to be the target of the majority of the destructive vandalism.
