"It has become one of the poorest, dirtiest and most failed cities in Israel, a city abandoned by the secular and the young" I know Israelis like to idealize TA,and denounce Jerusalem. Many times Israelis make sure I know they don't live in Jerusalem or like it,and that is fine. They want to disassociate with the religious,but in the media which is read overseas, it is important to clarify the real Jerusalem,which is not only exceptionally clean, but also has a solid long term population of seculars who enjoy a wonderful access to the arts. Jeruslaem may not have the pub scene of TA,but she has tons of cafes, fine restraunts,the symphony,art galleries, live theatre productions and much more. If you are 25 and want to go get drunk,go to a truly filthy city--Tel Aviv. If you are secular and enjoy fine arts and the ancient beauty of an amazingly pretty place, enjoy Jerusalem. Also,to call Jerusalem failed city is ridiculous. Birkat is protecting the secular sector with grace.
