Middle East: God's place and welcome to it

David Seaton's News Links
This is the place where God first spoke and created silence, breathed life and created death. A place where angels speak to shepherds and shepherds speak to sheep.

This is the place where water is walked upon and very little is left to drink and also the place where the waters part, and where the sun stands still and where the moon stops too, but never the spatters of blood caking on the bone dry stones, or the torn flesh and the weeping, screaming, widows.

This is the place where another's eye is worth a city's eyes and another's tooth a thousand of its heads, its land and all its ancient olive trees

Birthplace of justice and mercy, never to return.

God made it, let him have it. DS
