Laatst verspreidde zich een gerucht dat een nieuw jesjiva of joodse leerschool zou worden opgericht vlak tegenover het Soemoed Verhalenhuis naast het Graf van Rachel. Leden van onze vrouwengroepen hadden het vernomen. Nu weet je nooit hoe serieus je zulke speculaties moet nemen. Israel zou het gerucht kunnen hebben geplant(...)

Lately a rumor spread that a new yeshiva or school for Jewish studies would be established right opposite the Sumud Story House next to Rachel’s Tomb in Bethlehem. You never know how serious such speculation is. Israel may have planted the rumor so as to prepare or test the residents of Bethlehem. The occupation works by (...)

As England celebrates the day of its patron saint, many Palestinians are gearing up for their own forthcoming celebrations of the figure they also regard as a hero.

A familiar flag flaps in the wind above a Palestinian church in the West Bank village of a(...)

Tijdens het ontbijt vertel ik over mijn voornemen om een tentoonstelling van de Palestijnse fotograaf Elias Halabi op de Muur bij Claire te bezoeken. De titel is “Fracturing Separation” – een scheiding breken. Er zijn twee mogelijke verstoorders: zware regen (goed voor het land na een extreme droge winter) en traangas. Er zijn bijna dagel(...)

March 2014

At breakfast I mention my plan to visit an exhibit of Palestinian photographer Elias Halabi next to the Wall at Claire’s. It is called “Fracturing Separation.” There are two possible spoilers: heavy rain (good for the country after an extremely dry winter) and teargas. There have been almost daily clashes at Aida camp, (...)

This Week in Palestine

May 2012

“I don’t want to open all my wounds…,” says Maher Daoud, a descendent of Iqrit refugees, as we drive to the site where the village of his parents once stood. I wince and apologise, aware of how difficult the subject must be for him.

Iqrit is one of the 350 or so Palestinian villages that were completely destroyed and e(...)

Bussen en bewegingsvrijheid

Contributed by Toine Van Teeffelen on 26.04.2012:

Deze dagen reis ik veel in bussen vanwege het gidsen van Nederlandse groepen in Galilea en Jeruzalem. Een chauffeur vertelt me dat hij in het verkeer nooit ontspannen is. Hij is altijd op zijn hoede dat auto’s om hem heen een onvoorspelbare beweging kunnen maken. Als bus heeft hij weinig manoeuvreermogelijkheden.

Maar ook is voor hem de beschikbaarheid van werk belangrijk – en de tips (...)

Buses and freedom of movement

Contributed by Toine Van Teeffelen on 26.04.2012:

These days I travel much in buses while guiding Dutch groups in the Galilee and Jerusalem. A driver tells me that he is always concerned about the traffic. He is on the alert that cars around him can make unexpected movements. A bus cannot manoeuvre well.

Also very important for him is the availability of work and the tips of tourists. While a bit more tourists are coming to Palestine (...)
