Synopsis: In 2006, a dispute broke out regarding an initiative by the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles (backed by Israeli authorities) to construct a Museum of Tolerance (MoT) in West Jerusalem. The museum was to be built on a plot of land that in the past had been part of the historic Muslim Mamilla Cemetery. Debate centered on whether construction of a museum dedicated to human dignity on Muslim cemeterial land was justified. Yitzhak Reiter presents the public and legal dilemmas at the individual level, the political level, and at the universal level, integrating a multidisciplinary approach involving history, identity politics, and conflict resolution. The Mamilla dispute reflects a microcosm of conflicts over religious and national symbols of cultural heritage as well as Jewish majority?Arab minority tensions within Israel.

About the Author: Yitzhak Reiter teaches in the department of political science at Ashkelon Academic College and at the Conflict Studies Program of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He formerly served as the deputy advisor on Arab affairs to three Israeli Prime Ministers. He participated in a number of Track 2 diplomacy teams with Palestinians and has been a visiting scholar throughout the world. He is the author of National Minority, Regional Majority: Palestinian Arabs versus Jews in Israel and War, Peace & International Relations in Islam.

Book Description Sussex Academic Press, United Kingdom, 2014. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. In 2006 a dispute broke out regarding an initiative by the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles (backed by Israeli authorities) to construct a Museum of Tolerance (MoT) in West Jerusalem. The museum was to be built on a plot of land that in the past had been part of the historic Muslim Mamilla Cemetery, which since the 1980s has served as a municipal parking lot. Debate centred on whether construction of a museum dedicated to human dignity on Muslim cemeterial land was justified. The Northern Islamic Movement and a group of 70 academics and eight Israeli civil society organizations (including rabbis) opposed the project, but their petition to Israels High Court of Justice failed. Yitzhak Reiter presents the public and legal dilemmas at the individual level (an act of insensitivity to the Muslim minority in Jerusalem); at the political level (the right of equal treatment by the state and the right to administer holy properties [waqf] according to religious law and rulings of sharia [Islamic law] courts); and at the universal level (can conflict over a holy place be addressed objectively from the ideological/political positions that the place symbolizes, and is a secular civil court competent/appropriate to adjudicate a religious conflict). Research for this book integrates a multi-disciplinary approach involving history, identity politics, and conflict resolution. Sources include documents obtained from the Sharia Court of Jerusalem and Israels High Court of Justice, as well as Islamic law and Israeli civil law literature, reports of experts submitted to the courts, and personal participation of the author, including discussions with key players and informants. The Mamilla dispute reflects a microcosm of conflicts over religious and national symbols of cultural heritage as well as Jewish majorityArab minority tensions within Israel.
