Jerusalem! Jerusalem!

"As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it and said, 'If you, even you had only known on this day what would bring you peace--

The old city.
 but now it is hidden from your eyes.
Mount of Olives
Dome of the Rock
 The days will come upon you when your enemies will build and embankment against you and encircle you and hem you in on every side.
More old city.
 They will dash you to the ground, you and the children within your walls.

synagogues, temples, shrines chapels, mosques all crammed together
 They will not leave one stone on another,
part of the "new" city
 Because you did not recognize the time of God's coming to you.'"
I probably knew when I took it.
 Luke 19: 41-44 (Jesus speaking)

Muslim tower for calls to prayer

Jerusalem, how I love it.
