Heavily fortified with fences & barbed wire.
This is the "Promised Land"???
Occupied Palestine - Nov. 25th - 29th, 2009
This blog entry is to show people some of our experiences while we visited the Holy Land in occupied Palestine. In our 7 months of travel, not a single place has been as disturbing as Jerusalem and the West Bank. 60+ years of Zionist occupation has turned this place into a apartheid state with different laws for Muslims and Jews, with the Muslims always getting the short end of the stick. Every effort is made to make this place look as normal as possible for visiting tourists, but looking past the propaganda, just under the surface, you can see the paranoid heavy security and the tension that exists to this day between the two peoples.
Below are a few pictures that reflect the brutal Israeli policy towards the native peoples of this land, but even these cannot really reflect the situation that exists on the ground.
End the occupation, free Palestine NOW!!!
