Tales from my trip halfway across the world #2

The Marking of Territory in East Jerusalem
Walking through East Jerusalem, which is 100% Muslim, is like entering a different country all together. The music, the people, the food and the shops all made it perfectly clear this is the heart of Muslim territory. Then out of nowhere, droves of Israeli soldiers entered the scene in groups, first one group, then another, then another and so on. The purpose of their little waltz? “You’re not in Muslim territory anymore” is the message I think they were politely offering to the Muslims. One guy walked straight through them with his cart, neither he, nor the soldiers stopped or gave way. There was no collision, just business as usual.
