As we took the bus from the hotel this morning to the Mount of Olives, I found myself getting angry as I looked across the Kidron valley at the old city. The gold top of the Dome of the Rock and the other mosques and prayer towers made me very sympathetic to the Jewish people and I found myself wanting to have all the Muslims expelled from the city and country. I know I’m supposed to love my enemies and pray for those who persecute me, but I kept getting angry that the Muslims had invaded the city a number of times and had intentionally done things to it that would make life more difficult for the Jews. The things they did just seemed so antagonistic. I probably need to pray for compassion and understanding.
