Leon Mauldin has an interesting post with a map and photos of the city of Haran where Abraham and Jacob lived.
Ferrell Jenkins is back in Israel and posting daily of his travels. Friday’s post included a photo of the restored Jaffa Gate.
UPDATE (5/10): Joe Lauer has noted that the Haaretz story on the Muslim prayer room is three years old(!), and thus I have deleted it.
