The Israeli Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that Jerusalem's Museum of Tolerance can be built at its planned site in central Jerusalem despite opposition from Islamic officials. The construction of the $250 million dollar museum, which is being built by the Los Angeles based Simon Wiesenthal Center, hit a snag three years ago after dozens of Muslim graves were found on a section of the museum's planned central Jerusalem site during required groundbreaking excavations. The organization, which quickly welcomed the long-awaited court decision, said that construction of the museum project will resume immediately.
