Travel theme: Israel flag in the wind of Palestine

This week, Ailsa‘s photo challenge theme is Wind.

Israel 097 Jerusalem

I like taking photos of flags, although it takes some time and many attempts until the flag gets the right shape on the photo!

I made this one in Israel in December 2012, where you can see the Israel flag in front of both a church and the Dome of the Rock, the highly symbolic Muslim shrine, built on the place where Abraham is believed to have offered his son Isaac as a sacrifice to God and where the Jewish Temple Mount used to be.
