Back from Venice

 2 photos I brought back from my recent trip to Venice:

Venice 1:

A sensible idea: 
rucksacks are a real menace in public transport

Israelis should read their Bible

Israel's population is becoming more religious. Perhaps they should also start reading their bible. Yet, they will not like what they find in it. Micha, the prophet, for example, who warned his people:

Hear this, I pray you, ye heads of the house of Jacob, and princes of the house of Israel, that abhor judgment, and pervert all equity.

They build up Zion with blood, and Jerusalem with iniquity.

The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the LORD, and say, Is not the LORD among us? none evil can come upon us.

Therefore shall Zion for your sake be plowed as a field, and Jerusalem shall become heaps, and the mountain of the house as the high places of the forest.
(Micha, III, 9-12).

The Romans fulfilled Micha’s prophecy, occupied Jerusalem and destroyed Jewish national life.

Israel has not learned.
