Pyramids here and there

 Yigal Arnon Square?
It is funny to call a pyramid a square. ;-)

Water runs down from the top of the cylinder.
Often a crow sits on it and drinks.

It's a little oasis in the middle of Hebrew University's white stone buildings on Mount Scopus.

On Saturday night an Egyptian TV show hosted radical Salafist Jihadi  sheikh and scholar Morgan El-Gohary  and he called for the destruction of Egypt's pyramids and the Sphinx because they "were once worshiped and could be worshiped again."

He proudly  recounted  how he participated in the blowing up of the Buddha statue in Afghanistan in 2001 when he  fought along with the Taliban.

Destroy suh treasures?
Sickening opinions. Sin, even.
theft of world treasure definitely!

Yet, after the US election I feel hope for reason anew. Lies simply cannot prevail for too long. Most people long for what is right, and eventually GET it right. Let us pray (for that ;)

Bless you always!

People like that really frighten me. I just can't understand how they got to believe as they do.
