Jerusalem, 1917, and then 1896

Jerusalem, 1917
fair use

The image above comes from 1917. Jerusalem, the Holy City for three great religions.

If I forget thee, O Jerusalem,
let my right hand forget her cunning

O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets

The dew which descends upon Jerusalem is a remedy from every sickness because it is from the gardens of Paradise.

The Psalms, the Gospel, and the Hadith, three sister books. To whom should the Holly City belong? I think the correct question should be, When Will the Fighting Stop?

The film footage below comes from 1896. Cameramen from the studio of Frères Lumière came to Jerusalem to discover the uniqueness of the place. And they found a city where Arabs, Jews and Christians were living and praying together.
