Deheisha and Bethlehem Spring 2011

I travelled with my son Eitan to visit Deheishe and to teach karate to Awlad al Muhayyam, children of the camp.  We met my dear brother Mazen Faraj and he took us through Bethlehem to the camp.  The sights of the camp and the city were harsh and uplifting at the same time.  The bustling of this small besieged city and the faces of the children at Deheishe were uplifting.  The ugly wall and the restricted life the children of the camp suffer and the living conditions within the camp, with army incursions and shortage of water and electricity were sad and depressing.

Still, Eitan and I came out feeling that more needs to be done to get the word out and to let the world know that Israel is getting away with crimes that cannot be forgiven. Deheishe is but one example of the injustice perpetrated by the Zionist state. Here are a few images:
