This is Palestine

I have so much to say about my experience here in Palestine. Unfortunatly I think I am still processing many of the experiences and will have difficulty putting them into words here. So for now, pictures can help tell the story.

1. The dehumanizing nature of the setup of the checkpoints between Israel and the West Bank

2. The streets in the old city of Nablus are littered with posters. These posters show the faces of Palestinian men, women, and children all killed by Israelis in this last intifada (since 2000).

3. The Separation Wall. At some points in the wall, it is only a barbed-wire fence. But, some places are linked with sensors that automatically shoot if triggered.

just some things to think about…
