Coexistence, Tolerance and Understanding

Coexistence, Tolerance and Understanding

I was going to have a day off today, but no, more religious nonsense drags me to my keyboard.
This time it's the Jews and Muslims! Who'd have thought it.

Row over Jerusalem Muslim cemetery
Saturday, 8 November 2008 - By Wyre Davies Article Here

Religious leaders in Jerusalem are warning of dangerous consequences after a decision by Israel's Supreme Court to allow the destruction of part of an ancient Muslim cemetery.
The graveyard has not been used for more than 50 years, but contains the bodies of some important Islamic figures.
Many of those bodies will now be disturbed to make way for a new Jewish "Museum of Tolerance".
Mohammed al-Dejani says the cemetery is older than the US

but that only means
IT'S NOT VERY OLD!

My overarching opinion is, far too much respect is afforded to those whose life is over,

dead people no longer care where they lie.
Go ahead and move them, I bet not one word of complaint will be heard from the graveyard's occupants! (too flippant - oh well, it's said now!)
On this point, I have to agree with the statement by Rabbi Marvin Hier

"Jerusalem is a city built on top of thousands of bones - Jewish and Muslim," he said. "If we declared the whole of Jerusalem one huge cemetery, we'd never be able to build anything."

but not just about Jerusalem, dig anywhere on earth where people have previously occupied the location and you find bones. However he shows his true colours of intolerance and misunderstanding in an article by Jonathan Cook

'Rabbi Marvin Hier, initiator of the project, dismissed objections last week as cover for "a land grab by Islamic fundamentalists, who are in cooperation with Hamas".'

The land in question
is part of the waqf properties
seized by Israel after 1948!

Hark at the Pot calling the Kettle sooty arse!
Doesn't that mean that it was Muslim land to start with? How can they land grab their own land?

It's clear that neither of these religions are going away any time soon, so my overarching opinion above is clearly too radical for those whom put so much energy into perpetuating the past.
I suggest tolerance and respect from both sides; take a step towards each other!
If the Israeli authorities have it in their heads to allow the construction of what has been described as a 'centre for coexistence, tolerance and understanding' perhaps they should build it on the border between Israel and Palestine with a main entrance on each side of the divide!

Of course, the most obvious point is
When you are going to build a centre for tolerance and understanding,
and I hope you tolerate and understand my opinion here,
perhaps you should show some tolerance and understanding
of the people whose ancestors will mingle with the foundations
of your museum for tolerance and understanding


CAN WE SAY IRONY!!

The 'Museum of Tolerance Online' is replete with tales of Jewish suffering, so, as today is Donate to the poppy appeal
Remembrance Sunday

(the 90th anniversary of the end of the first world war)

I give my respects to those
who kept and keep us free
at the cost of their own future

and ask a single question if you are Jewish


If, in the future, Poland became an Islamic state
and decided to found a 'Museum for Tolerance' on top of
the sites of the Belzec, Sobibor, Treblinka, or Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camps,
how would you feel?

Please if you are Jewish, talk to the Israeli government
and berate them for their unbelievable intolerance!

This is one of the Too many questions
