My mother said to always keep my happiness to myself, to never whisper it to others. People will evil eye you, even if they don’t mean it, even if they love you, even if they have beautiful souls, she said. They can’t help the evil that resides in them, so protect yourself. Remain silent.

Don’t they ever think that this is what happened to them a while back let alone for centuries throughout history. You’d think they would have a bit of empathy.
”The streets were mostly empty. I stopped to photograph some settlers marking the Jewish holiday of Purim. They were passing around a bottle of wine, toasting the holiday, nothing out of the ordinary. I noticed a Palestinian woman walking along the shut-down stores. A group of settlers were walking in the middle of the street in the opposite direction when one of them took a step towards her. I instinctually raised the camera.
She didn’t scream or stop, she hurried up the street and vanished around the corner. I was left angered and saddened — as if the wine hit me.”

I hope to see the day that Palestinians can live in peace and build a real country. Mandela freed South Africa from apartheid, but the world continues to accept the apartheid inflicted on the Palestinian people every day.
