I’ll never understand the death of innocent children.
For most of my life, tensions in the Middle East seemed a distant distraction by religious zealots that went back thousands and thousands of years, fodder for the Bible, the Torah, and the Quran; and then Jimmy and I toured the Holy Land.
I’ve seen the 25-foot tall wall, dubbed the “Apartheid Wall” or “Berlin Wall” by the 2 million Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip and the 2 million Palestinians living in East Jerusalem and the West Bank. It was chilling; and sad.
What was really sad was acknowledging just how little I personally knew/remembered about the Israel-Palestine Conflict before my Middle East trip; and how quickly that conflict has escalated (again!) in the weeks since we’ve returned.
If you’re a loyal blogee, though, you know how much I tend to learn (and then just have to share) when it comes to travel.
