Just a quick post, to ‘update’ you on the situation in my bit of Jerusalem.
The birds are singing, the sun is shining, and things are eerily quiet where I live, in a ‘mixed’ community right next to the Old City.
This morning at around 6:30am, I thought I heard a group of protesters, or something, close by, but I couldn’t make out if they were chanting in Hebrew or Arabic, and I didn’t have the sense of ‘panic’ I get when something feels off.
Yesterday, my husband went to work with no problems.
I went to the supermarket with no problems.
My kids went all over the place visiting friends etc with no problems.
I know, that’s not at all the picture you are being painted by the media, but that is my first hand experience, currently of Jerusalem.
I know people are dying in other parts of the country.
Or rather, I should say I think I know that, because the level of lies and media manipulation going on has ratcheted up so high, the last few weeks, I literally trust NOTHING I see in the media anymore, unless I can verify it personally.
There are so many things setting the BS-O-meter off about what’s going on right now, I don’t know where to start in trying to unpick it all to see what’s true and what isn’t.
So, I’m basically ignoring ‘the matzav’ at the moment, while I focus on trying to finish up my investigation into what really happened in Meron.
Which is taking a lot of effort, all by itself.
I will continue to update you with my own personal experiences of life in Jerusalem, in the meantime.
If I see something with my own eyes, or speak to real people about their real experiences, I will share that.
But the reason I’m staying mostly quiet about ‘the matzav’ is because so much of it feels like ‘fake news’ – but I haven’t got the ability to sort out the truth from the lies.
BH, God will finally rescue us from all this madness, and all these evil people, intent on plunging the world into more unnecessary violence, wars and human suffering.
