The dead c/n defend themselves; it's up to catch up with these low-lifes. No limit to Arab/Muslim depravity - check it out. They have a snoot full of history, just in the past century, filled with violence, human rights suppression, wars, reactionary leaders. What else can one expect from people(s) living in such environments? Chag S' M' Ach everyone. . .

everyonce has free choice
No one is fully determined by his or her environment. Everyone has free choice, and can rise above the circumstances.
So what can you expect? Behaviour worthy of human beings, not endless repetition of the basest actions they can think of.

Security Measures for the Dead?
I have yet to hear of another country requiring security measures for their cemeteries (I assume this doesn't happen in only in the Mount of Olives). It only goes to show that these hate attacks are because Israel is the chosen nation of God.

Thank you for publicizing this
Thank you for publicizing this. It's important for people to know what's going on. I'm glad that you used a calm voice and a rational, historical approach to your report. the surveilance video was a "coup de grace" - I hope I spelled that right!

The Mount of Olives
One has to wonder why people desecrate graves and perform all sorts of hate crimes. Of course the dead can't rise up to stop them, but we, the Living CAN. And I think it's interesting that in the ancient olive, the word itself, and these venerable trees, there are the words: O, and LIVE, and I think there is no way to erase the past, and that those who were venerable, remain venerable, as in the words STILL LIFE. It could be, what we think we know, is not the entire story, and they live, as souls and could be watching this and shaking their heads. What's wrong is wrong. Maybe one day, those who hate, will get it right, and stop hating. Better yet, LOVE. We're all part of the family of man.

I can not understand what kind of perverse pleasure some demented person could possibly get out of destroying one's final resting place. Shame!
