Palestinian Women and Girls Suffering Under Jerusalem Occupation

Traffic was backed up for hours.

Roads were blocked.

Buses were backed up, drivers just sat head in hands.

Layers of security surrounded the funeral of Ariel Sharon.

A security blimp hovered over the Knesset Building for most of two days.

Dressed in black, riding in pairs, security forces on motorcycles checked and rechecked every bin, anything looking out of place.

Meanwhile, this woman dressed all in black sat in a Jerusalem, Israel park watching a child play.

Right in the middle of all these over the top security measures, no one thought her out of the ordinary.

This “Palestinian” girl had to stand to order her drink. She then walked of the cafe to Jaffa Road; never was she seated at a table.

And then this man just sat as two “Palestinian” girls walked by.

Shopping in the center of Israeli Jerusalem?

Impossible, BDSHoles say no to that.

Oh but, Jaffa Road shopping can be so exhausting, you have to sit down.

Another problem, it is difficult for “Palestinian” women to walk on Jaffa Road sidewalks these days, with those light rail stations blocking the way.

The light rail system, that nasty public transportation that so many “Palestinian” women use to come to Jaffa Road to shop.

“Palestinian” girls in Jerusalem, Israel, wear jeans (though we cannot be sure how much suffering goes into getting them so tightly fitted.)

All these photos (and lots more) were taken within a few minutes on Jaffa Road as the international world was focused on Ariel Sharon’s funeral at the Knesset, only a few kilometers and minutes away.

Coming home and reading complaints by Daniel Seidmann of the poor “Palestinians” in Jerusalem, Israel,

one has to wonder what Terrestrial Jerusalem is he on?

Oh those poor, poor “Palestinian” girls and women suffering now under”occupation” in this “united Jerusalem.”

In these photos you see just how strict security was on the streets during this special event.

Yes, at least one guy was watching, when two cute “Palestinian” girls went by on the Jerusalem, Israel streets.


Real Jstreets

I lived in the United States, Canada and Australia before moving to Israel in the midst of the Second Lebanon War. For the last ten years, walking the streets of Jerusalem, the scenes I saw every day did not resemble the ones familiar in the Western media. Now I try to share those positive images with the world, what is really happening in Jerusalem, Israel, The Real Jerusalem Streets
