The true Palestine

I recently travelled to the US, Lebanon, Israel, the occupied territories and Sri Lanka. I am writing a book for Melbourne University Publishing on the Israel/Palestine conflict and alternative viewpoints on this most misreported region.

This photo was taken near Jerusalem, showing, to the left, a massive Jewish settlement block, continually being expanded. To the right lies a Palestinian town, its land and resources increasingly stolen by the Israeli state. It would be hard to find a more startling visualisation of the true price of occupation. To those who say we are currently in the middle of a peace process between Israel and the Palestinians, facts on the ground sadly suggest otherwise.
