Smashing Travellers: Jerusalem Picture

With the ocassion of the Easters, I'm showing you this picture. This first one (of 2), has a reference to the Biblic Mythology; in this case, I'm setting it in a key point of the Bible.

Known in Hebrew as Yerusalaym, and in Arabic as al-Quds, it's a sacred city of Palestine and pilgrimage center for the Jews, Christians, and Muslims, proclaimed as capital of the State of Israel by the Knesset in 1980. This city features iconic monuments like the Wailing Wall (Western Wall), the Dome of the Rock (most ancient Islamic monument; VII Century), the al-Aqsa Mosque (XI Century), the Chruch of the Holy Sepulchre, etc. The city origins at the year 2000 B.C. Conquered by the King David (X Century B.C.), which turned it in their capital and the religious center of the Jews, known by the richness of the temble built by the King Solomon (circa 969-962 B.C.), was destroyed by Nabucodonosor (587 B.C.), and by the Romans (70, 135 A.C.). After falling at hands of the Arabs (638), was reconquered by the Crusaders and was turned in the capital of a Christian kingdom (1099-1187 and 1229-1244), before being dominated again by muslims (Mamluks: 1260-1517; Ottomans: 1517-1917). The Bcity, headquarters of the Palestine Administration under British domain (1922), was divided in 1948 among the new State of Israel and Transjordan. During the Six-Day War, in 1967, the Israelian Army taken over the arab neighbourhoods, which constituted the old city. This city is one of the key places of the Bible; it's the main place where Jesus Christ preached his ideologies. The fact of being a territory for Christians, Muslims, and Jews make this city, unfortunately, a conflictive place today; this is one of the main reasons of this cruel and unnecessary war between Israel (Jews) and Palestine (Christians, Muslims).

So, witht he ocassion of the Christian/Jewish/Muslim Easters, I'm showing this drawing. This time, my OCs, Mario Satoshi Matsumaru, Nadia Norma Mistralton "Liberation Princess", and Magical tracy Tomiyama Hoshikawa, joined forces with Super Mario and Kirby for fight against Adolf Hitler "Big Brother" and Galacta Knight (Kirby Super Star Ultra: Meta-Knightmare Ultra). At the screen, we can appreciate the Wailing Wall, which's a relatively small segment of a far longer ancient retaining wall, known also in its entirety as the "Western Wall". The wall was originally erected as part of the expansion of the Second Jewish Temple by Herod the Great, which resulted in the encasement of the natural, steep hill known to Jews and Christians as the Temple Mount, in a large rectangular structure topped by a huge flat platform, thus creating more space for the Temple itself and its auxiliary buildings. There's also the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, which's the main Christian place in the city, which contains, according to traditions dating back at least to the fourth century, the two holiest sites in Christendom: the site where Jesus of Nazareth was crucified, known as "Calvary" in Latin and "Golgotha" in Greek, and Jesus's empty tomb, where he is said to have been buried and resurrected; and the Dome of the Rock, an ancient Muslim building whose significance stems from religious traditions regarding the rock, known as the Foundation Stone, at its heart, which bears great significance for Jews, Christians, and Muslims. There's also the Calvary, which's the mount where Jesus was crucified. Surrounding the Crucis (symbol of the Christians), I added a Star of David (symbol of the Jews), and a Crescent Moon with a Star (symbol of the Muslims); with this, I'm representing the three main great religions which stablished in the territories which are today Israel and Palestine, which made this, unfortunately, a conflictive place.

With this picture, I want to say you that, with the fact of making the North-Korean Rebel Boy, the Romanian Angel Princess, the Palestinian Wizard Girl, the Red Plumber, and the Pink Puffball fighting against the Most Dangerous Dictator ever (and also the Evil Knight), I want to show you my dislike to the intollerance. Hitler was one of the main and most infamous promotors of the intollerance in all the world, and his infamous acts (and also the ones of the men who followed his infamous legacy) almost exterminate a religion, and he probably could make the same thing against the Christians and the Muslims. These three religions (Christianism, Judaism, Islam) are based in propagate the innocence, wisdom, kindness, and the peace between the people (especially the Christians and Muslims); however, among these three religions, there's unfortunately also so much hate, making the insurrection of religious fanatics (like ISIS), whose actions of hate only betray the true objective of their religions, turning them in a horrendous stereotype, and stereotyping the Religions is horrible...And also, there's much hate in Middle East by the blame of bad politicians and terrorist factions who only are betraying the true ideals of their religions...So, if we can act together, starting to respecting others, no matter their beliefs, I'm sure we can SMASH the Intollerance, because no matter our ideologies and religions, we're human beings with the same biology...Believe me that I dream with seeing the Jews, Christians, and Muslims of all the world co-existing peacefully, and Palestine could be free and peaceful forever...

So, be like Super Mario, Matsumaru-kun, Nadia-chan, Tracy, Kirby, and SMASH the Intollerance!!!

Comment, please.

And, Happy Easters for everybody in the World!
