The Dutch Zionist Association protested to the United Nations today the desecration of the ancient Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives, now in Jordan-held territory. The association urged the UN to investigate and to demand the punishment of those responsible for the violation of the last resting place of “many outstanding Jewish teachers and scholars.”
