What travelers say:

We've been talking about my last three years of Christmas, and last Christmas Eve we've been talking about my visit to Zabriak, Republic of Montenegro, during the Orthodox Christmas holiday season (a previous one for interested friends). It's Christmas, so we're close to the end of this series, Christmas is a Christian birth commemoration, so this issue is to talk to you about the origin of Christianity and the mysterious Jerusalem of Jesus' hometown! I have been three times in Israel in 17, 18 and 19 years, and while I am not a Christian, that has not prevented me from exploring the origins and culture of Christianity. I have been to Jerusalem, Nazareth, Haifa and Tel Aviv and have also been to the Dead Sea, Palestine, the West Bank and the Golan Heights...I really think that you and your believers should go and see this legendary country...there are so many stories about Israel that we "In Jerusalem I have climbed Mount Olivet to look out over the Old City; I have also gone to Mount Temple to visit the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Golden Ding Temple; I have been to the Garden of Gethsemane and the Church of Nations, where Jesus had a hunch that he would be taken away by Roman soldiers and weeping on the ground;" I have also walked 14 stops from Jesus' judgment to crucified to the path of resurrection and ascension; I have been to the site of the last supper of Jesus and the twelve; and of course I have also gone to the wall of crying to help the wall make a wish...these are Jerusalem of Israel! Let's go into the details of those stories later, but today is Christmas 2020, so tell you about Jerusalem on the Palestinian side! As any friend who knows some geography, history or religion, should know, Jerusalem, the Holy City of 3,000, is now divided for historical reasons into East and West, with so many of the aforementioned holy sites basically in East Jerusalem under Israeli jurisdiction, while West Jerusalem is owned by Palestine, The whole of Palestine is surrounded by the wall built by Israel (figure 12, which we passed when we entered the Palestinian area), and the founder of Christianity, Jesus, was born in Bethlehem! Friends who have been to Palestine know that it is a wall apart but inside it is a different picture. Palestine is Arab world, where you can't find Jews and see Hebrew characters, all Arab and full-eyed Arabic! I have been to Jerusalem twice with a local Israeli guide, and I have to go to Bethlehem on my own, they will never go into the wall to Palestine! These photos were taken on my cell phone when I was in Bethlehem in 17 and 18 years and I didn't come back to Jerusalem in March last year! Because of the trouble of getting in and out of the wall, traffic jams and changing to a Palestinian license plate! And the Palestinians are not as friendly and polite as the Jews, they see you as Asian and pull you into their shops to buy things or chase you with goods and charge you a lot, I hate that, and this is not happening on the Israeli side! (Of course, many Arabs who migrate from Palestine do business in the Old Town of Hard Road.
