Will Jerusalem Ever Be The Same?

Reflecting...



Things always must change or they die. 

Today's Jerusalem isn't the same as a century ago, a decade ago or a year ago.  It doesn't even matter if it's a good move or a bad one.  Change happens.  It must.

Imagine what people said all those millenium ago when Herod was expanding the Holy Temple!


So, if you can, enjoy the new Jerusalem Trolley.  Riding the Lightrail can be a lot of fun!

This little gem really got me laughing! (you've reminded me how to laugh, thank you!)
Love your sense of humour!

a, thanks, glad you appreciate it. I'm amazed that my picture of the two Arab women being photographed by yours truly actually came out.

What a good point - what did they say indeed when they started doing shiputzim to Har Habayis in Herod's day!

I don't know if Herod was very tolerant of criticism, but scholars to this day criticize him for a lot of other things. He was Teddy Kollek and Ehud Olmert rolled up into one, plus a bit of Stalin, too, no doubt.
