  • בית המשפט העליון הוא פנינה אדריכלית בירושלים- ומוטב לקרוא על כך לפני או תוך כדי הביקור או לשלב בסיור מודרך. במקום יש גם פסיפס מרשים. רואים את אולמות בית המשפט ונוף לשכונת נחלאות.

  • . " Dear Sirs, I want to write a letter, I thank you for this opportunity. This may be the greatest tool to get the words out that are true to the best of my knowledge, is that the United Stated Government has a patent on Ebola. This be truth then please hear me out. We need your help in bringing Justice in a Sovereign Nation that once revered your God as our God. Adonai the Holy One of Israel is LORD of all. Germ Warfare is genocidal acts against humanity. Ebola has the potential to wipe out Billions of ethnic groups. Adolf Hitler hated the Human Race. There is ethnic cleansing going on in AFRICA if Ebola is a patent to the United States Government. And this is Neo National Socialism in it's highest form possible. Please help bring Justice to the dead around the World to this Ebola outbreak, and America. Please recall that the Illuminati does want to wipe out 90% of the world's population. Fin." Here is all the given names to the invention: Inventors Jonathan S. Towner, Stuart T. Nichol, James A.

  • The Supreme court building of Israel is one of the most beautiful buildings in Israel. Built in the 1990's it has a "post modern" design, and it is highly recommended to join a tour that reviews the building and its function.
