Jerusalem’s system of checkpoints inside Palestinian neighborhoods of the holy cityAllison Deger - Mondoweiss - Welcome to a-Zeitim crossing, one of the newer divisions inside of Jerusalem. Although hailed as an undivided capital, where Jewish-Israelis can trot from neighborhood to neighborhood, increasingly intractable metal is constructed between Palestinian localities.

Childhood DeniedYousef Munayyer - IMEMC "Atta, an unarmed Palestinian refugee of 12 years who just wanted his school bag back was shot in the stomach.
