A few days ago we went to Jerusalem with my sister and her family. My sister’s husband Ron arranged a VIP tour of the Knesset (the Israeli parliament) for us. It was very interesting.
The 120 elected members decide about the policies and security matters. I was glad to hear that all the deliberations of the Knesset and all the committees, big and small, are broadcasted live on a special TV channel. The only committees that have closed sessions are the ones that are Military and Security related.
Did you know that we have 16 Arab and Druz members in the Israeli Knesset ?
After we ate at the market, we went to the old city. It is a fascinating place. If you like to travel then you should definitely try and visit. While walking in this old city you can feel the history resonating from every stone and every corner.
