Tolerance Museum Deemed Offensive

Here’s your bit of irony for the day: The Museum of Tolerance received permission last week from the Israeli Supreme Court to build a new campus in West Jerusalem on a 400-year-old Muslim cemetery over the protests of Arabs. “We will not tolerate the construction of the Museum of Tolerance," said an Arabic leader. The Israeli Court pointed out that, 40 years ago, a parking lot built in the area raised no objections. The Simon Wiesenthal Center has pledged $250 million for construction of the museum, which will be designed by Frank Gehry.
