Posts from Israel

Last night I began going through photos from my trip. In general, highly disappointing because many of them were taken from the window of a large bus and while in motion. However, I will share my impressions from the region in various posts, but don't know where to begin. Which topic do you want to read about first? It's important that there is reader interest in my impressions because processing photos and writing text takes a lot of time and effort. Vote below please, if you are not all on holiday. :)

Poll #1967359 Israel Posts

I want to read about...

Jerusalem, Israel
41(62.1%)
Ramallah, Palestine
10(15.2%)
Palestinian Refugee Camp
10(15.2%)
I'm not interested in Israel
5(7.6%)

Thanks!

I will write nice things about the Arabs in Palestine, so mentally prepare yourself. :)

Health remains a mystery. Doctors still have not determined what the rash is, but I have tested negative for measles, chicken pox, mumps, shingles, etc. Both the viral and bacterial swabs came back negative also. This is good news. Next stop is a dermatologist. Thanks for asking. Many readers have emailed me to check on my condition. Nice to have such caring subscribers. :)

Yesterday I watched a movie, Fading Gigolo with Woody Allen and the idea came to my mind -
Why go to Israel when there is Brooklyn? It's so nice and clean there!

Because Brooklyn is still not Israel, and you can only understand the tensions in the region by walking in both Palestinian and Israeli controlled areas. Plus, I hate New York. :)

It was interesting for me also, the first time I visited any type of place for refugees.

Write everything about everything. The more the better. Text of less than 1000 words won't be accepted. Text of more than 3000 words will be applauded.

Readers on LJ have a very short attention span, and some of my posts already contain too much text. Readers have complained about it in the past. My university degree is in Writing and it's a big part of my profession, so it's hard to control myself. :)

Что ни сделаешь - всё к лучшему
Your blog is fine, as it helps to explore the world. God, how I had so much hope for the 21st century, when i was a schoolboy! I had hoped to visit the moon, and many other plans... Fate deprived me of the opportunity to visit the moon, but it gave me the opportunity to live in the last decrepit, crumbling empire and meet Jewish Nazis. Why doesn't the Ku Klux Klan open an office in Israel? I have a strong belief that huge queues will occur to join the organization.
Russia is full of this infection too, but I'm used to russian dullards, jewish surprise me. I always have had a very high opinion about jews.

Re: Что ни сделаешь - всё к лучшему
In fact, Jewish fascism, in more broad sense (as exceptionalism :) ), is one of the oldest in the World.
Their sacred books are full of recommendations of how you cannot behave with Jews but can do the same with non-Jews.
Only Christianity and Islam, as worldwide religions, which everybody can join, cured the society from this ethnic crap.
Surely, these religions have their own problems and are full of hatred too but it's better anyway than any undercover ethnic mafia.

We should not stop Cold War and then maybe we could walk on the Moon in quantities.

I can also show you videos of white people dressed in their Ku Klux Klan (KKK) robes, burning the houses of black people. But it doesn't mean we all behave that way. There are radicals of every nation and nationality, I still don't believe they represent the norm in Palestine. At least not based on what I saw. Maybe it's true in Gaza, but I didn't go there.
