View from Bethlehem
Palestine, the Middle East.   2001

The hole in the wall is in a house in Beit Jala (the western most part of Greater Bethlehem, one might say)

Beit Jala (west, mostly Muslim), Bethlehem, center (50/50), and Beit Sahour (east, mostly Christian), together make up one town we in the U.S. think of as Bethlehem. Through the hole one can see Gilo, a very large Israeli settlement outside of the southern city limit of Jerusalem. Gilo is constantly gobbling up Palestinian territory. Palestinian houses on the northern edge of Bethlehem are constant targets of the Israeli army.
