Kever of Onkelos Prank

This story recently appeared on the Israeli news exposing a prank that a few Yeshiva bochurim pulled off in Jerusalem recently. Taking advantage of a site no one ever seemed to notice, these guys undertook some homemade renovations and declared it to be the long lost Tomb of Onkelos the righteous convert. Complete with separate entrances for women and men, an authentic looking sign, and blue paint for a spiritual touch. This prank succeed in gathering the faithful for a prayer rally in Onkelos' honor...until they were caught.
