Muslim desecrates graves in Mount of olives, Jerusalem

An incident of cemetery vandalism at the Mount of Olives Jewish Cemetery
in Jerusalem was documented on video on November 29, 2011. The Arab
perpetrator, who was consequently found guilty due to the video
evidence, was sentenced to three months in prison for his crime. He
admitted that he received NIS 1,000 to commit his acts of cemetery
desecration.

Avrohom Lubinsky, the founding Chair of the International Committee
for the Preservation of Har Hazeitim, wasn't surprised by the footage,
as the vandalism has been going on for some time already.“This
video clip is only one example of the rampant vandalism that continues
to plague Har Hazeitim", explains Lubinsky, "It was the first time that
such vandalism was captured by some of the new surveillance cameras
installed on Har Hazeitim. Unfortunately, these acts as well as the
frequent stoning of mourners and visitors continue in areas where there
are still no cameras and points to the urgent need of deploying a police
garrison immediately.""This is not a freak occurrence", added
Charley J. Levine, adviser to the Preservation Committee in Israel,
"This sort of vicious vandalism and desecration occurs at Har Hazeitim
every single day, some orchestrated and some spontaneous. It is a shame
of enormous proportion that this takes place at the oldest and largest
Jewish cemetery in the entire world!"http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/154099#.T25UftmFSxM
