I just returned from Jerusalem . The city is booming , bustling , every coffee house or restaurant is full , constructions are everywhere . Try to buy an apartment , it cost more then in New York . It is not a poor place and I am moving there . As far as the Arabs are concerned , it is just the nature of that population . Look at suburbs of Paris , Hamburg , Madrid ....where they get everything free , just like in Israel , but they still live for generations in a primitive , back warded , crime ridden third world slum . It is easy to finger-point but This cultural trace no Government can change .
