Kababir is a special neighborhood in Haifa, made up of Jews and Ahmadi Muslim Arabs. Kababir was formerly an Arab village and is the only community in Israel whose residents belong to the Ahmadiyya sect of Islam. The Ahmadiyya movement has millions of followers worldwide and was founded in India in the late nineteenth century. The founder of the sect, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani of Punjab, India, arrived in Kababir and persuaded the inhabitants to join the sect. According to the theology of the sect, jihad (holy war in the name of Islam) must only be carried out through negotiation and goodwill, not through violence. Ahmadiyyans follow all of the commandments of Islam but oppose the concept of jihad, while preaching for brotherhood of nations. There is a Center for the Ahmadiyyan Delegation to Countries of the Middle East in the village. Another place of interest in the village is the mosque which was built in the 1970s and stands out, in particular because of its two towers.

Hello reader. My name is Charlotte Noris and I am sure that you will definitely enjoy my blog. Do you know why? All because on the pages you will see bright and colorful photos, as well as useful information. My husband and I are freelancers, so we can travel at any time of the year. For myself, I most often plan tours in advance, but it also happens that the trip turns out to be spontaneous when I see an interesting place and a nice price. At the age of 35, I have visited more than 30 countries and do not plan to stop there. I want to visit all continents and the most secret corners of our planet.
