Arsuf (artist's conception above) was an ancient city and fortress located in Israel, about 15 km north of Jaffa, on a cliff above the Mediterranean Sea. In 1101 Arsuf fell to a Crusader army led by Baldwin I of Jerusalem. The Crusaders, who called it Arsur, rebuilt the city's walls and created the Lordship of Arsur in the Kingdom of Jerusalem. In 1187, Muslims regained control of the city and fortress. (Excerpt from Wikipedia)
   Jaffa (roll over image to see modern Jaffa) is an ancient port city believed to be one of the oldest in the world. It has been incorporated with Tel Aviv, creating the city of Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel. In the Hebrew Bible, Jaffa is mentioned as the port-of-entry for the cedars of Lebanon for Solomon's Temple and as the place where the prophet Jonah embarked for Tarshish rather than travel to Nineveh as God had instructed him. The New Testament account of St. Peter's raising of the widow Tabitha from the dead takes place in Jaffa. (Excerpt from Wikipedia)
