A New Rebellion

Hidden among the modern edifices of the sprawling city, the building suggested religious observance, a strict adherence to rules, and practices steeped in history. Instead it housed a rising Phoenix, the spirit of those that revolted against the oppression of the Romans. Centuries later, the small group planned to fight against the oppression of the current rulers.

“This time we need to get leaders in government and business on our side. Let’s be smart so that we can prevail. Think French Revolution!”

The embers stirred as one of the most powerful men of the country walked into the age-old synagogue.

    1. They are hoping to have a leader on their side – time will tell. As for a coup – maybe not, as the people wanting to rebel against the government are not in the military.


  1. With such a powerful ally they have a chance to go far. I like the rebellious history of the building from roman times to today, that builds a nice bridge.
