Pictures from the holy land


Here are a bunch of different photos that I took while in the holy land:

This is the Wailing Wall, or the Western Wall, if you prefer:



This a picture of the young Israelis who shocked me with their guns in the middle of West Jerusalem's night life:



Here are pictures from the anti-war rally in Tel Aviv. The first is the protest, the second is a Palestinian protester being roughed up by the police while people yelled that he should be sent to Gaza to be killed, and the third is a pro-war protest across the street:








A poster from the rally:




The walls of Jerusalem's old city:




Inside the old city in the morning at one of the gate's leading to al-Aqsa or al-Harem as-sharif:



The Dome of the Rock:



The anti-war candle light vigil at Damascus Gate (Bab al-Amoud) in Jerusalem:



This is a view from Bethlehem. The walled off section is a settlement, which is 70% empty:



This is part of the seperation wall that has cut right by a Palestinian home, cutting the home off from the rest of its land:



Here is the wall up close in Bethlehem:



These pictures are from the Alrowwad Cultural and Theatre Training Camp in the Aida refugee camp in Bethlehem:

The boys with guns are most probably soldiers on leave. In the IDF combat soldiers are issued a personal weapon, which they must carry with them at all times (even when goingto the loo). When on leave, they can either lock it in a safe or take it with them. They carry the gun more out of fear that it may be stolen than anything else (common belief has it that you can be sentenced for up to 7 years for loosing your gun).
