A Walk Around Old Jerusalem

9 comments
 We experienced this week the first full moon of 2017. When we were in Jerusalem last October, it was also a full moon on our first day there. Jerusalem was built and was fought for by the Jewish and Palestinian tribes all over Israel including foreign invaders like the Muslims, Ottoman Turks, Romans and even the British, have conquered and lost this land for over 2,000 years old. Even Jesus Christ and his disciples have lived and even died here. It is one of the most ancient cities in the World. It considers itself the centre of the world. No wonder, even the moon and the sun here are so huge and so fierce, always making known to the people below its magnificent power. We learnt that Jerusalem is a city of contrast with all four religions have its history here from the Jewish, Islam, Christianity and the Orthodox. Each one living side by side inside its ancient walls. They live with each other peacefully and sometimes in war. But lately, with the grace of God, they are living beside each other in peace. Jerusalem, we learnt, despite its ancient history of conflicts, is a city of peace after all. 
 
 
Most of the store owners are Palestinians who are so welcoming, friendly and helpful. They are a good people who are working hard to earn their living and live peacefully with the Jews. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Honestly, sometimes, it was hard to distinguish if they are Jewish or Palestinians. They both descended from Abraham.  I learnt many lessons here including not to be judgemental, to keep out of trouble. Just be respectful. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Jerusalem is a City of Peace, a sign from this coffee and tea shop owned by a Palestinian.
