Municipality creates garbage dump inside Bab Alsbat cemetery next to Lion Gate in the Old City

22 February 2012 | Wadi Hilweh Information Center – Silwan

Large quantities of waste are being piled by the Jerusalem Municipality inside the Islamic cemetery (Bab Alsbat) next to Lions Gate in the old city, in a move that has upset and offended the City’s thousands of Muslim inhabitants. The Lions Gate, which lies close to the sacred Al-Aqsa Mosque, is now awash with the overpowering stench of accumulated garbage.

One resident stated that the Jerusalem Municipality “is unashamedly discriminatory in its practices. They not only use a sacred place as a rubbish dump, they even burn the rubbish here, inside a holy place  the Bab Alasbat cemetery. Why has UNESCO not tried to stop the Municipality?”

A resident Christian priest of the Old City told Silwanic that he considered the Municipality’s actions unlawful, and encouraging of racism in Jerusalem.

    Do we agree on this : all correspondence to those people is handeled by … The Handlers , Duh !

    So , communicating has two meanings : a) you express your self to whom it Really counts , The Handler of your Politicians , The Puppeteer , and
    b) it allows you to play mind-games with the ‘elite’ , hopping , mostly in vane , that you’ll win using a paper , Peaceful Revolution …

    Get instructions from , future shocking if you let it …
