Occupied Palestine 2018 – An Overview

 

A short compilation video about my recent visit to Palestine to highlight my main observations and to help explain why I was there. Places visited include: Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Al Khan Al Amar, Nabi Saleh, Ramallah and Hebron. These are all my own photos and video of things I witnessed with my own eyes. Please watch and share. Thank you.

– Airport detainment and interrogation.

– Heavy military presence & the militarization of the police, use of snipers and M16s.

– Watch towers and surveillance cameras throughout Palestine to monitor movements

– Daily harassment of Palestinians, I saw this family having their passports checked and denied entry when trying to go to Al-Aqsa to pray.

– Checkpoints to pass into the West Bank and move around restricting freedom of movement.

– WALLS!! Israeli West Bank Barrier Wall (Current height 8 meters, 440 miles)

– Banksy Hotel – built to mark the 100th year of the Balfour declaration a public statement issued by the British government during World War I announcing support for the establishment of a “national home for the Jewish people” in Palestine.

– Trump exports ideas from Israel into the US ; Building walls, putting children in cages, trying to ban Muslims from the country and now shooting non-violent demonstrators for throwing stones at the military.

– Olive Harvest – to help prevent illegal confiscation of Palestinian land by the Israeli military and prevent harassment and attacks on farmers for using their own land.

– Dheisheh Refugee Camp – subjected to regular night raids by the Israeli military

– Al Khan Al Ahmar – Bedouin village with a school made of tyres for the children, resisting demolition by the Israeli government.
