In Palestine pt.4

June 26, 2013

Ramallah is the geographical seat of the Palestinian Authority, but it is becoming increasingly clear that there is far from a consensus among Palestinians regarding them. The PA has gone two years over their mandate without an election, yet have been pushing ahead with state-building activities without any clear direction or input from the vast majority of Palestinians (within the West Bank, never mind Gaza, within Israel, or the wider diaspora). This graffiti was on a wall across from one of Ramallah’s cultural centers. It’s in English, and who knows who wrote it, but it does seem to speak to a vibe here which is lying just below the surface.
