My Mamilla discovery gets some traction

The Palestine Post article I found on Sunday that showed that the Supreme Moslem Council in Jerusalem planned to build a business center - and its own new headquarters - on top of the Mamilla Cemetery in 1945 has been getting some play.

The Jerusalem Post wrote an article about it, linking back to my find.

JTA quotes the Wiesenthal Center's reaction to the find, as well as Jerusalem Dispatch.

Missing so far is any reaction from the crowd of shrill people who were writing op-eds worldwide about how holy the site is. I imagine that they will soon claim that the Palestine Post lied in 1945 - even though it was against the proposed building complex.
