Israel Today

by Reb Akiva at Mystical Paths

On Tisha B'Av, we mourn the destruction of the Temple, of Jerusalem, and of Israel. B"H, with many blessings Israel is growing in ways that are astounding - and occasionally annoying...

The beauty of the past and the Land... the Haifa shoreline with ancient Roman port in the distance...

Point the camera the other direction (literally), and it's Yahoo, Google, and Microsoft (off camera to the right)...

The Carmel mountains of Eliyahu HaNavi (Elijah the prophet) are framed by the new Israel Electric Company building, and clearly Israelis are not afraid to create some great interesting architecture...

Toys R Us, McDonalds, Ace Hardware, Speedo, are you sure this is Israel? This mall is fully equiped with the latest in national and international brands. The hebrew signs include the Pelephone cell phone company, Neve Pharm drug store, Cell Com cell phones, Bank Leumi, Shekem Electronics, and...Bowling.

The past, the future, the Land, the beauty, just depends on which direction you point your camera. That's Israel!
