President Obama Divides Jerusalem


Jerusalem is a divided city during this official Presidential visit.

There are the winners:

Those drivers who are the last to go through an intersection before it is closed.

And the losers:

Those people in the first car to be stopped who have to wait for an unknown amount of time.

Egged bus waiting for Obama motorcade

This was the first public bus stopped for President Obama’s motorcade.

Those passengers were losers if they had to get somewhere on time.

Real losers, as they should never have taken a bus in Jerusalem during Obama’s arrival.

And this student bus driver was a real winner.

Ramban street closed for security

He was having a driving lesson on Ramban Street which is normally overcrowded with traffic and clogged with buses, trucks and cars.

STreet in Jerusalem with no cars.

In honor of President Barak Obama’ s visit to Jerusalem, no cars were allowed to drive or even to be parked on Ramban Street.

A new set of winners: anyone wanting to shop at Rami Levi

Obama took a helicopter to Ramallah, but road #60 is still supposed to be closed while he is there.

Oh well, at least no one should get injured by rocks on the road today.

I lived in the United States, Canada and Australia before moving to Israel in the midst of the Second Lebanon War. For the last ten years, walking the streets of Jerusalem, the scenes I saw every day did not resemble the ones familiar in the Western media. Now I try to share those positive images with the world, what is really happening in Jerusalem, Israel, The Real Jerusalem Streets
