FِAITH IS NOT LIMITED BY POLITICS

 

Pictured here: An Orthodox Jew prays at the wall of the Sanctuary of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs (also known as Ibrahimi Mosque and Cave Machpelah) in Hebron. Many still pray only outside the sanctuary, despite the Israeli authorities having divided the building, turning part of it into a synagogue after the 1994 massacre, when twenty-nine Muslims praying in the mosque were killed by settler Baruch Goldstein.

INCESSANT DAILY ID CHECKING

 

Pictured here: While passing through checkpoints in Hebron, Palestinians going to places a few hundred meters away from their houses might be stopped and detained for forty-five minutes by Israeli border police or solders. Here a Palestinian man has to sign a paper testifying that they didn’t mistreat him during that period.

OVERCOMING BARRIERS

 

Pictured here: A CPTer escorts Saraya kindergarten children through the paved part of a segregated street in Hebron. Fortunately for the kids, Israeli Border Police have not strictly enforced this segregation in the last few weeks. Previously they were forced to walk the unpaved path on the other side of the fence, which is full of rubble and trash. Challenging this rule lead to the arrest of two CPTers in March under false charges.

GIRL INTERRUPTED

 

Pictured here: A Palestinian girl is briefly stopped on her way home as she makes her way past the weekly settler tour. While it may seem a minor inconvenience, when put in the context of constant Israeli military occupation, it is part of an ongoing process of control and intimidation. The weekly settler tour is an intrusion into an already restricted public space, with some private spaces also occupied by the Israeli military for extra surveillance.

TO ENJOY LIFE IS TO RESIST

 

Pictured here: The ability to smile and enjoy life while under occupation is a gift, and is an example of sumud.
