    wow, this is strange, I wonder who makes the translation for this site, the hebrew version of Weiss words is

    ????? ???? ???? ????, ???? ????? ??? ???? ??????, ???? ????? ?? ???, ???? ??? ???? ???? ????? ??? ???? ???. ???? ???? ?????-??? ?????? ????, ?????? ????? ???? ???? '???-???' ??? ???-????."

    Which should read,: Many years from now, one would know that New Jaffa is the Hebrew city, and we shouldnt call it any other now, cause this would be as though we have built a city within a city. A new quarter isn't like a new settelment, and in foreign languages the city we be called Nof-Yafo like New York

    This is the correct translation and it is consistent with Weiss' view since the day he founded Ahuzat Bayit in 1906. His vision was to build a new modern Hebrew city the would be independent and large and would serve as the gate of Eretz Israel, in the same manner New York was the gate of America

    Amir,we didn't take the text from the Hebrew,but from an article in the Jerusalem Post and please, don't be so "sarcastic" ( We are two Dutch guys,one in Holland,one here, with an enormous love for Tel-Aviv..I am for 100% sure that there isn't one website on the Internet who brings daily news about Tel-Aviv,2 or 3 items,about Art,Architecture,Fashion,Music,Ballet/ Dance, Galleries,Events,Movies)
    Warmest regards,
