The Intifadah of Jerusalem

There is a regular side of Jerusalem, and I know, because I have lived there. It's the side where people just get up, go to work, go shopping, come home, make dinner, go out, go to movies, etc..

Then there is the mystical, religious, tourist, ephemeral side. Sometimes they meet, but most of the time they are separate.

Last night, a well known Rabbi who is an activist for Jewish prayer rights at the Temple Mount, was shot at point blank range by a Palestinian who was employed at the Begin Heritage Centre.

(I have other thoughts on employing young Palestinians with confirmed criminal/nationalistic crime records...)

Anyway, the world is snoring of course, but do read this piece from Linda Olmert and pray for Rabbi Glick's recovery.
