Leon Rosselson, letter to the Guardian, 28 July 2014

“Before the current round of violence, the West Bank had been relatively quiet for years,” writes Jonathan Freedland (Israel’s fears are real, but this war is utterly self-defeating, 26 July). According to B’Tselem, the Israeli human rights centre, 90 West Bank Palestinians were killed, 16 of them children, by the IDF or by settlers between January 2009 and May 2014. According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, there have been 2,100 settler attacks since 2006, involving beatings, shootings, vandalising schools, homes, mosques, churches and destroying olive groves. According to Amnesty International, between January 2011 and December 2013, Israeli violence resulted in injuries to 1,500 Palestinian children. “Relatively quiet” for whom?

Omrim Yeshna Eretz – Once upon a Land / A Tour Guide
 
What’s hidden behind the stone wall on the corner of Tel-Aviv’s Arlozorov and Ibn Gabirol Streets? What is the pile of stones near Highway 1 on Motza curve? And why is a minaret doing in the middle of Yahud’s main street?
Omrim Yshna Eretz – Once upon a Land – offers 18 tours in Palestinian neighborhoods and villages whose inhabitants were expelled by Israel during the Nakba and largely destroyed. The tours lead the reader to places that used to be, and whose ruins we often encounter, albeit without always knowing their significance. From the coast of A-Zib (Achziv) in the north to Bir Saba’ (Beersheba) down south, the tours reveal to the reader and traveler a hidden layer in the country’s landscape, breathing new life into those familiar yet often mysterious remains, abandoned houses and crumbling walls.
Book Launch on Friday, September 7 2012, at 12am
At Arab-Hebrew Theater in Jaffa, 10 Mifrtaz Shlomo St. Further details to be provided soon
The tour guide is published by Sedeq: A Journal of the Nakba that is here – collaboration between Zochrot, Pardes Publications and some forty writers and photographers. Discounted copies will be offered at the launch event. Please contact us for further information at: +972-3-6953155, zochrot@zochrot.org
