Video: Chinese documentary on Israel, Part 5 of 12

Here's Part 5 of that Chinese documentary on Israel.
Episode 5: Golden Jerusalem
The Old City of Jerusalem, also called the Golden Jerusalem, covers an area of only 1 square kilometer and boasts a strong contrast between, as well as the coexistence of, various cultures. In history, Jerusalem was always accompanied by ceaseless wars and conquests. Here, Khalifah, Mameluke, Crusades, Saladin and Suleiman I all played roles. Today, we meet two senior citizens: one is Ms. Ora Namir, who used to be ambassador in China and loves Chinese culture and people, and Mr. Shimon Peres, the Israeli President and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, who has unique insight into both Jewish and Chinese civilizations. The Bar Mitzvah of young Jews held at the Western Wall reflects the significance of this ancient wall in the hearts of Jews.
Let's go to the videotape.

I just watched the whole thing on Youtube. Great documentary, and it's nice to see a summary of Jewish existence that's actually fairly complimentary. Israel should feel thankful they have a friend in the Chinese people.
