“Children of Zion at Al-Buraq Wall [1] write their hopes and prayers … then comes the Ethiopian sanitation worker to sweep it into the trash[2] 😉
{‘And Allah is predominant over His affair, but most of the people do not know.’} [3]”

– Beit Hanina – Jerusalem Page

0202 Editor’s notes:
[1] Al-Buraq Wall refers to the Western Wall, or Kotel. According to Muslim tradition, Muhammad rode on a winged steed called Al-Buraq to Al-Aqsa Mosque, meaning the furthest away mosque. He tied his horse to the wall, hence the name.
[2] Jews visiting the Western Wall often write prayers to God on pieces of paper that they stick in between the stones. These are cleared out periodically every few weeks.
[3] From the Quran, Surat Yusuf, Aya 21.
