The City of the Lord, the Zion of the Holy One of Israel... Awake, awake; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy City.

Isaiah 60.14,52.1

The opening quote in Simon Sebag Montefiore's best selling : ' Jerusalem The Biography ' ............. as it says in the stand-first on the back cover.......... 'The story of Jerusalem is the story of the world'.

I am downloading the pictures from today's job in my hotel room ........ I am watching anti-aircraft guns blazing over Tripoli live on Sky TV .......... I have the balcony doors open onto the night sky of Jerusalem.......... outside I hear fireworks and firecrackers cracking and banging celebrating the Jewish Holiday of Purim.
