Israel



Jerusalem, the Holy City. This is a view of the Wailing Wall and the golden dome housing the rock of Mohommed. Notice that two of the most holiest areas for Jew and Muslim are literally right next door to each other. A fascinating visit... however, you should know that the city has been razed and rebuilt since Jesus was crucified like a dozen times, so nothing you see in the city really equates to anything you read in the Bible (no matter what the tour guide says). Israel is a tiny country... and visiting there really drives that point home. From the peak of Masada, you can easily see all the Arab nations surrounding Israel... all of them who would love to see the Jews driven out - or just destroyed outright. Fascinating place.
