Moving Views of Jerusalem

Here the word "moving" doesn't allude to emotions. It signifies that the views themselves are moving. Yes, I've been having fun with the video function of my camera and the ever-cooperative youtube.

The first one was taken at night, from the Menachem Begin Heritage Center, which has the most magnificent view of Jerusalem's Old City Walls. Here we see the car lights at Sha'ar Yaffo, Jaffa Gate.

And here we see a different Jerusalem. It's a view of the largest post-Six Days War neighborhoods of Neve Ya'akov and Pisgat Ze'ev. The combined population of these neighborhoods is more than many Israeli cities. The only thing which will solve Jerusalem's serious housing shortage and make it possible for people of average means to purchase apartments is to build more neighborhoods like these.
