The Holy Land is one that inspires passions, legends and, of course, controversy.  Jerusalem is probably the holiest place on earth, where the three Abrahamic faiths converge – Judaism, Christianity and Islam. A glance at a map reveals names that seem more fantasy than actual geographic places – the Sea of Galilee, the Dead Sea, and Jericho; Nazareth, Bethlehem, and the river Jordan.  

For those interested in current affairs a visit to Ararat’s tomb in Ramallah, the Golan Heights overlooking Syria and Hebron, where both Jewish settlers and Palestinians live can, can be quite the eye-opener.
