The Campaign to Preserve Mamilla Jerusalem Cemetery was launched in February 2010:
In the name of tolerance, and human dignity, the Israeli regime is intent on razing the oldest cemetery in the Holy City of Jerusalem.
For decades, this regime has been implementing policies that aim to ethnically cleanse the city of Jerusalem, as well as, other parts of historical Palestine. The regime attempts to conceal these policies and measures in various ways.
It’s the turn of the 12th century Mamilla cemetery in Jerusalem. The facacde cannot be more ironic: the regime intends to build the “Center for Human Dignity - Museum of Tolerance” on the ruins of the cemetery.
