The Aqsa compound is a serene garden containing a number of mosques, a library, a school, an antiquities department, etc. If you aren't Muslim, you can't go inside any of the buildings. This is a political issue that won't be solved anytime soon. But just...More

This site has changed hands between Christians and Muslims many times. Now is a mosque. There is nothing attractive, unless you are a Muslim. As a matter of fact you kind of feel push away by the attitude of the people, if you are not...More
