The Swimming Pool - Mixed

If you believe Israel is an "apartheid" state, you will be disappointed.

Next to the Menachem Begin Heritage Center is a small park, part of the larger park that extends up towards the King David Hotel. It has a fountain with lion-like figures. Arabs from Silwan come up to take advantage and swim and even pick olives.

Orthodox Jews do, too.

So, here are some Arab youngsters in "apartheid" Israel cooling off

and here is an Orthodox "settler" type overseeing his children while an Arab mother sets her baby down for a dip (sorry for the distance but I sought to remain discreet on this second shot)
