    Background: For story see clipping ???ed. What had long be??? known, namely that the Jordanians ???ouring their 20-years' rule in ???t Jerusalem, wilfully decorated Jewich holy pl??? ???trics., as proven once more, when religious Jews tore open one half of the Jerusalem-Jaricho highway, where it passes the Mt. of Olive, the most venerated cemetery of Jews from all oven the world because, us Jewish tradition has it, it lies nearest to the Golden Gate of the Old City Wall, through which the Messiah is to enter one day; and on that day of resurrection, tradition has it, Jews buried there will be the first to come back to life. Right after the 6-day war, there s a Jewish outcry, when graves on Mt. of Olives were found to be desecrated, when tombstones with Hebrew inscriptions were found to have been used by the Arab Legionnaire as flooring for their tented camps and even latrines had been laid out with those same grave-tones - having built the highway over Jewish graves is just one other proof that the Jordanian can hardly claim today that they are able. leave alone entitled, to be the guardians of holy places of any religion but their own.
