First-hand Report on Safety in Jerusalem

by Steve Ray on December 30, 2017

Steve Ray here. I know a lot of people are watching the mainstream media and seeing protests, fighting and devastation in Israel. Hey folks, it ain’t happening. It’s the media hyping things like they always do. They have to be sensationalists. (See my post from a week or two ago.)

I just took a nice walk through Jerusalem this morning and can assure you it is peaceful and quiet here and there are no incidents or protests.

92126C41-00F5-440C-B3A6-2725BFFF2E0AIf there were to be protests and problems in Jerusalem they would normally happen around the Damascus gate especially on a Friday which is the holy day for Muslims. But there was none of it.

Here is a picture from our hotel window looking down on the whole street including Damascus gate. It is peaceful and quiet with no issues.

If you see news where there are problems it’s usually down in Gaza (far away from us) and they’re using archived video footage from years past.
