There are some pictures here, which have nothing to do with Bethesda. They show another pool, that lies not too far from Bethesda in Jerusalem, and is called 'Birkat Israel' ("The Pool of the Israelites"). This pool is shown for example here, and only here carries the correct name. Unfortunately here and here it is called 'Bethesda'. I assume that this confusion started long ago, with David Roberts for example, who drew 'Birkat Israel' and called it 'Bethesda' (like here), but that doesn't mean we have to follow his mistake.

I'd support a move for the additional reason that we have seven other 'Bethesda' categories. Bots get confused as a result. Recently GeographBot placed several dozen images of the Bethesda area in Gwynedd, Wales here: people must have been surprised to find pictures of the green mountains of Snowdonia and Welsh slate quarries in a Middle East category! There's also another town called Bethesda in Maryland, USA. Anatiomaros (talk) 23:45, 3 June 2010 (UTC)
