The results suggest Iran's next parliament will be more supportive of President Rohani's drive for economic reforms, but conservatives will remain a powerful force.13:31 30.04.16 | 0 comments
Some enterprising person should package tours of ancient Christian sites, including the one at Megiddo, Mar Saba, the still flourishing monasteries near Jericho, Capernaeum, sites in Nazareth as well as the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. The challenge is to appeal to North Americans where Protestantism is over-represented and Orthodoxy under-represented, unlike the situation in Israel. Too many American Protestant Christians just visit the bogus Garden Tomb and the Jordan River just south of Kinnereth. They miss out on much of the early Christian heritage. Anything that boosts tourism to Israel and builds cross cultural understanding is welcomed.
