Er Sorry!
A woman wearing a mask of Queen Elizabeth stands next to an apology inscribed by the elusive British artist Bansky in Bethlehem, West Bank.


In Ramallah, around 3,000 people marched from the city centre to the British Consulate, many of them carrying banners with slogans such as “100 years of dispossession.” It was on this day hundred years ago that Britain promised to Zionists to create a Jewish home in what is now Israel.

Jerusalem. Israeli police officer silences a protester. Demonstrators in East Jerusalem held a sit-in in front of the British Consulate, handing letters to diplomats. They called on Britain to apologize to the Palestinian people. Israeli police quelled the protesters when some raised the Palestinian flag.
