In the attractive and characteristic neighbourhood of Rehavia in Jerusalem, not far from the president's residence, there is this a small museum called the Museum For Islamic Art . It is a gorgeous museum filled with amazing artifacts. Personally though I think that the museum should be called the Museum of Eastern Art. Most of the artifacts pre-date Islam and/or originate from non-Arab speaking countries such as Turkey, India and Iran. It is very likely that this watch was part of the loot of one of the greatest robberies in the art world
Life in Israel - the boring, the scary, the strange, the funny and extra-ordinary things that you can only find in the Holy Land!
