JERUSALEM (RNS) Located on Mount Zion, the Cenacle is where Jesus held the Last Supper. It sits directly above David’s Tomb, the place many Jews believe the biblical King David is buried.

    The Holy Land:
    Where all cruel acts are blessed by opposing gods.

    May G-d bless you, Max. May He open your eyes, your mind, and your heart.

    Which god could bless, me? They are all against me:

    “The only true faith in God’s sight is Islam.” (Surah 3:19)
    “Fighting is obligatory for you, much as you dislike it.” (Surah 2:216)
    “Believers, take neither Jews nor Christians for your friends.” (Surah 5:51)

    “Cursed be he who does the Lords work remissly, cursed he who holds back his sword from blood.” (Jeremiah 48:10
    “Seize all the non-believers and execute them before the LORD in broad daylight…” (Numbers 25:1-9)

    “To those who would not have me as their king, bring them to me and EXECUTE THEM in front of me” – JESUS (Luke 19:27)
    “…the master shall CUT HIM TO PIECES” – JESUS (Luke 12)

    None of these gods can be real.

    This is illustrative of why Israel nor Palestine can be trusted to govern Jerusalem. Perhaps it should be an international city.

    Do something useful with this site and also something that will please folks: put a combo Burger King-KFC-Pizza Hut there. A kind of Last Supper Food Court. Something for everybody. The kids will love it.
