Tel Aviv town hall goes German

JEWISH people, perhaps above all others, know what itís like to suffer tragedy.

Thatís probably why Israel is always among the first countries to send aid wherever there is an earthquake or any other disaster.

The most recent catastrophe has been in Germany, where more than 160 have died in floods.

The Mayor of Tel Aviv, Ron Huldai, tweeted: ďIím sending my condolences to the German people and our many friends in the country.

ďOur thoughts are with all those affected by the devastating floods.Ē

And he also arranged for Tel Aviv town hall to be lit up in the German colours.

Just think about that for a moment. Who would every have imagined it?
