9/ Seizing Land: This photo requires some explanation. The Palestinian town of Iraq Burin (foreground) near Nablus in the Northern West Bank has been losing land because of the aggressive activities of nearby settlements such as Bracha (red roofs in the background). There is indeed a Wall in this photo between the olive trees belonging to farmers from Iraq Burin and the grapes just above in the photo belonging to Bracha. Settlers from Bracha literally, supported by the Israeli army, confiscated the land where ther grapes are now growing, burned the olive trees that were growing there and now the two types of cultivation face off like enemy soldiers embedded in the landscape. In this way the settlement keeps expanding down the hill into the land and crops of Iraq Burin. March 27, 2011
