Dear All,

Jerusalem's city center was under curfew Thursday afternoon. On duty were 7,500 policeman and soldiers, a few helicopters, and one video surveillance balloon to protect some 4,000 people marching about 500 meters along King David (yes… exactly the one who loved Jonathan in the Bible) Street…

World media was present, too…

Attached please find a very small selection of about 450 pix I took.

Best greetings and Shabbat Shalom / happy weekend!
