Haifa

This is quite a funny quote from Haifa's mayor from a news article talking about the lack of distrust between the city's arab and Jewish communities, a marked difference from the racial tension in other mixed cities like Tel Aviv or Acre.
I asked Haifa's mayor, Yona Yahav, why co-existence works better in his
city than in other mixed Arab-Jewish areas. "I think it's because Haifa
was spared a visit by Moses, Jesus, or Mohammed," he says. "There are no
holy places to fight over. The only prophet among the three religions
who visited here was Elijah, but he is accepted by all the faiths."

The story of Elijah is a funny one, he gets all sarcastic with the heathens. "Uh, I guess your god's out hunting and can't hear you. Wail louder!" One of my boys is named Elijah.
