The human spirit

On this grey obscenity which has been designed to grab land and split communities -even families - apart, the human spirit shines through.  Amongst the political statements and messages of solidarity there are moments of happiness and even humour.

Talking to people throughout the Occupied West Bank I couldn't get over their lack of bitterness. Mostly, they felt bewilderment: Why do the Jews steal our land?  Why won't they live in peace? And the one I couldn't answer: If people in the West know what is happening here, why do they do nothing?
