Photo of the Day: Santa

Once again this year, the municipality of Jerusalem gave out small evergreen trees, free to Christian residents.

Near that Old City Jaffa Gate distribution point is a shop, where all week, a red Santa has stood outside, not a real one, or rather real person, but an almost life-size replica.

As Israeli Jewish and religious families have stopped to take photos with the Santa, I wonder what do they know about that old man with the white beard?

Meanwhile, Pallywood photos of Israeli soldiers bashing poor Santas in Bethlehem are spreading in the anti-Israel media and I wonder what they did to get those shots?

Hundreds of Indians with Santas marched into Bethlehem, oh but, they were really peaceful , so that was not news.


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
