David Cameron, The Way Things Were

As soon as things in the Canadian Parliament start looking positive and maybe, just maybe people are seeing past Arab propaganda, there comes along this British Parliament video.

In response a question in Parliament, David Cameron mentions his proper tour of Jerusalem.

The way it was in the past

Which made me think of this painting by Ludwig Blum, ‘from British Government House’ (Armon Hanatsiv) in 1954.

The way things were as seen from British Government House in 1954.

See for yourself, hardly any houses. Hardly any Arab houses were built, even a few years after Jordan ceased occupying the Old City and the land around the walls.

Maintained the way it was in the past? Rubbish as they say in Britain!


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
