14. That doesn't justify this.
If you are building a museum to religious tolerance, you don't dig up a 1000 year old cemetary to build it. You can either make the argument that a museum should be built or that Muslims deserve to have their cemetary molested, but you can't argue for both without sounding like a functional retard or a Freeper (same thing, I guess).
