Orwellian sign in Palestine
From friend John Treat, now safely home, who writes:
For me, the photo best sums up the contradictions I saw. This is the main checkpoint between Jerusalem and Bethlehem, a gate in the wall that has been built to contain the Palestinian population. The Israel Ministry of Tourism clearly understands the need to attend to your PR no matter the place or situation. While that's laudable, in its way, I do think they need to sharpen their sense of irony a bit.
