RELIGIOUS TENSION WAS THICK as we we toured the Jewish Temple Mount, or for Muslims, Dome of the Rock. While we were there, four Jews entered into this very holy place considered to be where the Temple was built, while Muslim women, men and children shouted "Allah Akbar, Allah Akbar" from the belief of it being an Islamic holy place. The Jews were escorted by Israeli police. 

 

 

WAILING WALL

There is a passageway beneath the city streets that brings you even closer to the most western portion of the wall. Many Jews find there way here, as this woman did. We passed here as we came in and hours later passed her again as she devotedly recited from the Torah.
