Bill Weber checks out the steep slope falling off the side of Qal'at al-Subeiba, appropriately named the "Castle of the Large Cliff." This castle, located on the shoulders of Mt Hermon in occupied Syria (or the "Golan Heights") is actually an anti-Crusader castle. It was thrown together hastily by Al-Aziz 'Uthman in the 1230s (AD) to protect "the road to Damascus" from a Crusader return. The return of the Europeans never materialized. Three decades later, the Mongols took it. After being briefly used as a Turkish prison, it fell into disrepair. A few tourists like Bill still visit the site (I shot this in 2005) and likely remember it by the name "Nimrod's Castle."
