I am currently at Pilgerhaus Tabgha, a retreat house run by German Benedictines on the Sea of Galilee in Tiberius, Israel.
We've been in Jerusalem and the dangerous areas of Palestine since Monday. We've had Israeli troops with machine guns board our bus twice as we departed Palestine controlled areas. And signs warn Israelis that if they enter Palestine areas, it will be dangerous to their lives.
I am conflicted about the Palestine and Israel perspectives on things political. The Palestinians, many are Christians, not all are Muslims, are treated like dirt on their own soil.
The Christian Palestinians are the ones leaving because they can trust no one, Jews or Muslims. Everyone is a fault for the problems in the Land of Jesus, the Holy Land.
But at least I don't have to hear about Hilary and the Donald. The American election in Europe and Israel is viewed as a joke this time around and the Donald is seen as American Berlusconni.
Posting is sporadic as I am on the road and WIFI is limited.
