One thought on “Haifa, Israel: An Island of Sanity

  1. Interesting comments near and at the end of the article. One person quoted suggests there is no violence in Haifa perhaps because there is nothing religiously to fight over: “Jesus wasn’t here; Moses wasn’t here; Muhammed wasn’t here.” And another says that Haifa isn’t special, it is how “normal people live.” But I believe it is special, and perhaps “normal,” because Baha’u’llah was, and is, there.
