"The destruction is related to the issue of renovation. The Israeli establishment does not want us to renovate the graves so it is destroying them," he said.
In the heart of Jerusalem, dozens of new tombs are being added to an ancient cemetery, but no one is buried beneath them. Jewish observers and sources in the Jerusalem Municipality say the pretend-graves are simply a Muslim project for grabbing land.

Israeli bulldozers backed by police destroyed dozens of gravestones in a Muslim cemetery in central Jerusalem on Tuesday, according to an AFP photographer.
The Islamic Movement accused the municipality of destroying more than 200 Muslim graves that had been recently renovated in a centuries-old cemetery in mostly Jewish west Jerusalem.
"Last night at around 12:30 am (2130 GMT) occupation forces entered the cemetery and destroyed around 200 graves," said Mahmud Abu Atta of the Al-Aqsa Foundation linked to the group, whose members are Arab citizens of Israel.
He said the bulldozers returned later in the day to destroy dozens more after a Jerusalem court rejected a petition to halt the work.

It looks like Israel is at it again. It's almost so obvious what they are doing, it's insulting even to non-Muslims. The theme seems to be to make the Palestinians so angry by dehumanizing them. This way, when they act out or fight back, Israel can just label them as terrorists, which gives them the excuse to kill more women and children. This is American tax-dollars hard at work, funding an agenda just as evil, if not more so, than that of the Third Reich.
