Jerusalem and the Valley of Jehoshaphat from the Hill of Evil Counsel
We took this picture from the wall surrounding the Old City.

The ”Hill of Evil Counsel” where the United Nations now has its headquarters.
This is the place where Tony Blair has his office as the Quartet ‘Road-map’ representative. Hill of Evil Council on the south of the Valley of Hinnom. It is so called from a tradition that the house of the high priest Caiaphas, when the rulers of the Jews resolved to put Christ to death, stood here.
He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon (Daniel 11:41)

Interesting, I'd never heard of the "hill of evil council" before. It's a beautiful pic. Imagine all the history that has taken place there. I hope there will be more pics.
