By Daniel Treiman

The Babylonian Talmud says: “Ten measures of beauty descended the world, Nine of them were taken by Jerusalem, and one by the rest of the world.”

But how many of those measures will be left once the real estate developers are done with the holy city? Jewlicious takes a look at the high-rise developments looming in Jerusalem’s future, and takes us on a walk through the not-too-distant past, when things that now elicit shrugs, instead generated outrage.

The article complained that, "New towers and developments are going up all the time - geared towards well moneyed tourists and part time residents...". So in other words, the author is upset about all those foreigners buying property in Jerusalem. I wish he would keep his xenophobia to himself. I for one like international cities that are open to all.
