Jerusalem District police officers and city officials on Tuesday demolished a memorial garden in the Arab neighborhood of Ras al-Amud in east Jerusalem, which was created to commemorate terrorists — or “shahids” according to the garden’s founders — who have been killed during the current wave of violence.

The garden was created several weeks ago. Its founders planted saplings and placed images of terrorists alongside each one. They also spray-painted slogans on a nearby wall. The entire memorial was built on public property and, unsurprisingly, without a proper permit.
