Muslims claiming that Mount of Olives is not a historic Jewish cemetery
Diab claims that although the Ottoman government allowed limited numbers of Jews to be interred there, the hundreds of acres of the Mount are mostly filled with fake Jewish graves that were created only for Jews to grab more Jerusalem-area land.
In reality, the Mount of Olives has been a Jewish graveyard since First Temple times. Some 150,000 Jews are estimated to be buried there.
Tens of thousands of gravestones were desecrated by Jordan during the 19 years that the world considers a “status quo.”
Here is a photo of the gravestones being used as stairs for an Jordanian army camp:

Indeed, the only people ever to fake graves in Jerusalem to grab land are, naturally, Muslims.
But these are just competing narratives, and the Arab lies must be respected as much as historic truth, right? That seems to be the rule in the Middle East nowadays.
