In general all is quiet. In the picture are soldiers next to the entrance to the village Abda. They guard road 60.


In this photo one sees the expansion of the settlement of Givat Gal. The Tamimi family suffers very much from their neighbours.

In general all is quiet but Hebron gives a bad feeling even when nothing  happens there.

We went on to Tel Aviv. We had been asked to accompany Amal from Umm al Hiran who had been asked to speak at the panel of the Solidarity festival. It is sad  to see how terrible the attitude is towards Arabs on both sides of the green line.

We united the struggle.

We showed how it is truly possible for Jewish and Arab women who refuse to be enemies.
