Jerusalem is enthroned upon a hill at the edge of a cruel blue sky. It’s stones and the stones of it’s walls are the color of bones left too long in the sun. The Judean deserts plots against it’s air-condition suburbs. Sands whisper along its ancient streets. One of oldest Jewish prayers is for rain. At first sight the city is instantly familiar; the walls, the crosses, the great golden dome. It’s sits astride the path of pilgrims from every point of the spiritual compass. For the people of the book Jews, Christians, and Muslims – it is a scared place
