Awesome photos. I know men and women are segregated... but were any women there last night? Maybe they just didn't get their pictures taken.

Shanah: I guess the photographer was on the men's side. I'm sure there were thousands of women there as well...

I'll see what I can find for you :)

My wife and I went to the Kotel tonight, and a photograher was standing on the top by the womens side photographing the men. Dont know why, but thats how it is...


What I heard today from you all and on TV here is very sad. My heart cries for all of you.
I do not know what to think anymore. I see a world war III coming in the very near future.
Sad for all.
Be safe & God Bless.

Thanks for the updates, Jameel. I have refrained from watching TV this Tisha Bav now I wish I had seen Nasrallah... thanks for the pics. Take care....


Its 10:00 PM here in the evening and They have live views on TV of Beruit. Its taking a pounding.

I hope that the sicko leader of Hizbolla does not lose it and send terror to Tel i via.

The reporter on fox that is Beruit is saying if he does then he will see the gates of hell open up.

You need to do what you need to do to stop the madness of that madman.

God Bless you all. :O)
