August 2011

The assistant deputy minister at the sector of antiquities and cultural heritage of the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities would not enjoy being characterised as the Palestinian Indiana Jones. He dislikes the perception of archaeology as a process of treasure-hunting, a thin step away from looting. Yet Dr. Hamdan Taha’s single-minded campaign to restore Palesti(...)

By Marian Houk

The Jericho Equestrian Club was established in 1994 by one man driven by a dream and the power of his will. It is now the only place in Palestine offering all types of equestrian activities, including sports training, horse care, entertainment, and therapy for riders with special needs.

A Story of Existence

By Mohammed A.K. Owaineh

TWIP November 2011

To Him who rides upon the highest heavens, which are from ancient times; Behold, He speaks forth with His voice, a mighty voice.

Oftentimes, to win us to our harm,

The instruments of darkness tell us truths,

Whether they are the people of her native Nazareth or the Palestinians of Gaza, the Arabs of Palestine were constantly being undermined and oppressed by the Israelis in one way or(...)
