Nothing is straightforward in Israel, and Nazareth highlights this. The 'capital' of the Israeli-Arab population in the north, it is 100% Israeli-Arab. The city suffers from under-investment by the State. But within the city, there is also the problem of the relationship between Muslims (60%) and Christians (40%). In spite of it being the home of Jesus, there are more mosques than churches.
A modern, bustling city, Nazareth is not quite what tourists expect!

    All my pics home in Oz-nice to see yrs but likewise think the main church we visitd was the Annunciation-very catholic of course(which came in after the Canons of the early church)but interesting to see the sights& spots surrounding relevant to the bible.

    I think the site reviewed is called the Church or Basilica of the Annunciation not the Ascension.

    You are right, I also think the that this city potential is much higher, but it is to the locals and the state to make it even nicer and better
