I know nothing about the following Jerusalem based event, other than what is in the featured piece below. But it’s a Guardian mention of Israel and Jerusalem which is possibly unique, as it has no anti Israel bias!

The introduction:

Into battle with the Knights of Jerusalem – in pictures

The Knights of Jerusalem historical festival is now in its fifth year and is the only known Israeli tournament accredited by the Historical Medieval Вattle International Association. The festival features re-enactments of medieval battles, with enthusiasts from around the world fighting with full armour and swords.

You can see the action, here.
