Showing solidarity at the Brandenburg Gate this evening

January 09, 2017

This is a follow up to my dispatch earlier today, which you can read here:

Five young victims (& the UN’s surprisingly strong condemnation)


Above is a photo of Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate illuminated with Israel’s colors at the present time (it is 8 pm in Berlin) in response to yesterday’s terror attack in Israel’s capital, Jerusalem.

Local and government authorities have often changed the color of the Empire State Building, the Eiffel Tower, and other prominent buildings in recent years in solidarity after terror attacks elsewhere.

But to the best of my knowledge this is the first time a major landmark has done so in solidarity with Israeli victims of terrorism.
