I was very excited toward my visit in Basel. as an Israeli boy, i grew up brainwashed about Zionism and the mythological story of Theodor Herzl. now, grown up and clear-eyed, I think that Zionism is just as stupid as any -ISM. I can almost say -as stupid as a religion. but nothing is as stupid as a religion. anyway, don’t get me wrong, Herzl was a great man, a true visionary man, crazy, possessed by his idea, unstoppable. when he just started everybody laughed at him. now he is semi-god. almost like Jesus Christ or Elvis Presley.
That is why I wanted to take this tribute picture. It was taken In the same hotel where Herzl made his iconic picture in 1902 - The Three Kings Hotel in Basel only one floor under-at the balcony of the Hotel’s Cafe. I actually shined also in the exact place - room no 117, but the pictures was not as good as this.
