Default Rare Snowstorm Paralyzes Jerusalem Area, Northern Israel

JERUSALEM — The worst snowstorm in 20 years shut government offices, public transport, and schools in Jerusalem and along the northern Israeli region bordering on Lebanon on Thursday.

Many Palestinians in the hilly occupied West Bank were also snowed in and dozens were forced to flee flooded homes.

Elisha Peleg, an official in charge of emergencies with Israel's municipality for Jerusalem, urged residents to remain at home and stay off the streets, telling Israel Army Radio the area had overnight seen its greatest snowfall since 1992.

He said 10 to 15 centimeters (4 to 6 inches) of snow had piled up in the city center and more than that in outlying areas. "The downtown area is bathed in white," Peleg said.

"The elders of Jerusalem don't remember such a snowstorm in years," Peleg also said.
"He who does not long to know more of Christ, knows nothing of Him yet." - Charles Spurgeon
“To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing.” - Martin Luther
"Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God, and I care not whether they be clergymen or laymen, they alone will shake the gates of Hell and set up the kingdom of Heaven upon Earth." John Wesley

It is funny to see the News from the USA, because I am in Israel right now, and as far I can see no one is complaining about the snow, actually it is very much welcomed here and EVERYONE is welcoming this. It is very beautiful here. so white and pure. So many people are happy and full of joy, it is fun and lovely to watch. American News can NOT be trusted. NO ONE IS HURT HERE, but HAPPY!!!!!!
