Can you imagine a city like this: For more than three thousand years, it has been given countless titles. It is a temple of god, the capital of two states, and the Holy Land for three major religions. It is also known as the place where news happens every hour, every day. It is the Holy Land, but also a cemetery. Flaubert called it a "morgue," and Huxley called it a "religious slaughterhouse." This city perfectly combines contradictions like holiness and cruelty. This is Jerusalem, a city that makes the world restless.
