After Arab attacks, Mount of Olives cemetery gets new police sub-station

April 5 marked the opening of a police sub-station at Jerusalem’s Mount of Olives, whose cemetery has fallen victim to desecration. In addition to damaging graves at the site, Arabs have attacked Jewish worshippers with rocks.
The Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations praised the opening of the sub-station, expressing hope that the move “will stem the continuing acts of violence and desecration and add to the security of the residents and visitors from around the world who come to visit graves of the luminaries of Jewish history interned there. This is an obligation that we bear to protect the dignity of the departed and sanctity of this 3,000-year-old holy place for future generations.”
