      Dear Steve,

      Sorry I haven’t noticed your comment earlier.

      I suggest you contact or, since this post and the images were made by COMET-ME organizers (

      My guess is it would be all right, as long as you make some clear reference to the context of the picture: Palestinian farmers under Israeli military rule, who are struggling to retain their rights and their attachment to the land.

      In any case, again, please contact them.

      All the best, Assaf

    A Plea to the World from the Principal of a Palestinian School about to be Demolished – I publicly denounce the Israeli Government even thinking about demolishing a Palestinian School. It makes me ashamed to be Israeli and I call on the Government to stop this terror immediately. These are children for God’s sake. …..
