(NEWS) Muslims Decry ‘Desecration’ At Capital’s Mamilla Cemetery

"Rally comes after 300 phony tombs erected at the site.

Despite what city officials have called 'clear and indisputable evidence' of some 300 fraudulent tombstones that were discovered – and subsequently demolished – inside an ancient Muslim cemetery in Jerusalem in recent weeks, a handful of demonstrators arrived at the burial site on Wednesday morning to protest what they labeled the city’s “desecration” of the cemetery.

Nearly two dozen Muslim demonstrators descended on the city’s Mamilla Cemetery, a centuries-old Islamic burial site in the heart of Jerusalem, at around 10 a.m. on Wednesday and began chanting slogans about the recent developments there."
