Snow in the Middle East

Of course one must not snitch photos off the internet, but my excuse on this occasion is that I just can’t be in Jerusalem to take the shots myself. If only I could.

There was something moving about seeing what I was brought up to call The Holy Land under a thick blanket of snow last week. I don’t call it the Holy anything any more, but plenty do. If you care to go googling you will find photos of smiling Palestinians throwing snowballs, and Israelis too.

It makes a wonderful change from the usual images beamed out of the disputed territory.

Funny how snow, like love, changes everything – if only temporarily.
