I was struck immediately by the photograph. The headline of the article reads:
“Israel’s last remaining abandoned Arab village, Lifta, gets reprieve as judge voids development plans”
“Architects and planners view village as a cultural asset that preserves the way of life and the construction typical of Arab villages in the early 20th century.”
The article appears at: http://www.haaretz.com/print-edition/news/israel-s-last-remaining-abandoned-arab-village-lifta-gets-reprieve-as-judge-voids-development-plans-1.411447
Regardless of one’s political position, a “Jewish Philosophy Place” would be remiss not to notice and take an interest.
