The Prince and the President

The news, well at least Israeli cyberspace news, was full of Paula and the President.

The same size crowd certainly did not come out to see the Crown Prince of Denmark.

At first I was going to make jokes about how he looked like a regular guy from Tel Aviv.

The Prince and the President did the official handshake and smiled for cameras.

But then they sat down with flags behind them, and

President Peres told the Prince how we would never forget what Denmark did to save

Danish Jews in World War II.

The Prince in his reply mentioned the little boats that 70 years ago ferried Jews away

from the Nazis and to safety in Sweden.

Not funny after all.

That was a serious story.

A story that should that be remembered and shared.

Too bad the Queen and King of Denmark have not been to Israel.

But people are still talking about Paula.


Real Jstreets

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
