Before it was so far, Wilfried was visiting together with his host in Tel-Aviv, Ariel Yannay Shani- during the week-end the Dead Sea and Masada, the fortification where during the Jewish War 74 p.C. the last Jews had found a shelter and committed collective suicide in order to prevent their surrender to the Romans. It is a wonderful wild landscape, holy and full of violence alike, the view from Masada is going deeply into Jordan on the opposite of the Dead Sea.
