Compare the Funerals, And The Mourning

Here's a picture I took at the funeral of Gilad Shaar and Naftali Frenkel, both 16, and Eyal Yifrach, 19, HaYa"D, at the Modiin Cemetery where they were buried.

The mourners were quiet and stoic. And here's one from an angle I couldn't take.

Here's how Jews mourn:

And here's how the Arabs are mourning:

All of this is something to think about...

Apparently, the Arab rioters so badly damaged the lightrail tracks and equipment in the  Shuafat and Beit Hanina neighborhoods of Jerusalem that the trains will no longer be able to travel through there. That leaves Pisgat Zeev without train service. More buses will have to be added to service those neighborhoods which are as populated as many Israeli cities. I, too, along with many residents of the Benjamin, Samaria and Jordan Valley take the train to and from Pisgat Zeev as part of our traveling to and from Jerusalem. There will now be more traffic on the roads and more crowded buses. I suggest that the city and the CityPass directors decide to change the route, leaving out the Arab neighborhoods. They should build a direct route straight from Pisgat Zeev to French Hill. It will make the train safer all around and a quicker ride for us.
