Who is ignoring reality here?  What could possibly be more real than thousands of human skeletons that have been dug up? Can the SWC seriously claim that it is a coincidence that thousands of human remains were found on the site of their intended museum?  It is irrelevant that a parking lot was built there before the Museum was planned.  The fact is that the site for the Museum was always a part of the Mamilla cemetery, as is evident from planning maps and aerial photographs from as late as the 1950s (1951 photo attached).  As a recent aerial photograph shows, the area where the museum site is located is clearly within the boundaries of the historic Mamilla cemetery.
