Pictures from trip to Jerusalem, West Bank

I took a few pictures on my recent trip to Jerusalem and the West Bank (aka Palestine), and you can view them by clicking HERE.

I did not take pictures of the most interesting sights, which were the Isreali land occupations in the West Bank, known as settlements, or the Israeli military installations there, or the Palestinian man I saw down on his knees with his hands cuffed behind his back, or the waiting cage at the Qalandia checkpoint, because I did not desire to get shot. I only took pictures that were innocent of political content, though some of them, I hope, are graced with spiritual content. It was the spiritual that I went in search of anyway; the political I sort of stumbled into.
