Rock Climbing in Palestine
Ein Qinia
By Ibrahim Husseini
05 Dec 2014

Rock climbing is an emerging sport in the occupied Palestinian territories. Two American climbers with the help of an Italian climber are bolting rocks and teaching Palestinians how to rock climb.

The following footage was taken in Ein Qinia, near Ramallah, on Friday December 5, 2014.

This location was picked by Tim and Will for at least two important reasons. The first is because the rock is suitable for bolting and climbing and also makes a challenging climb. The second reason is the geographical location. The proximity of Ein Qinya village to Ramallah makes it unlikely for Israeli settlers to venture in. There are other climbing areas in the OPT but they are close to Israeli settlements and therefore are avoided by Palestinian climbers for fear of getting in trouble with the settlements guards and the Israeli army. Hundreds of Israeli checkpoints across the OPT makes movement a nightmare to Palestinians. Lack of outdoor recreation in Palestine makes climbing attractive to Palestinians and contribute to the overall quality of life for those who value outdoor activities.

More about Tim and Will (taken from the wadiclimbing.com website)

Timothy Bruns was a Political Science major and Arabic Language minor at Colorado College and is deeply interested in development in Palestine. Tim has been rock climbing for many years. He has extensive experience teaching hard skills, technique, and rope skills. He has built rock-climbing walls in the U.S. and is helping to construct an expansion at a local Colorado climbing gym. Tim is a certified lead climber and Wilderness First Responder. Additionally, he has spent past summers working with children and teenagers; leading wilderness trips in New Hampshire and North Carolina and working at a leadership camp with Palestinian youth in Maine.
Will Harris was a Colorado College Economics and Business major, Arabic Language minor and is an accomplished athlete. Will loves rock climbing and worked part time at a local Colorado rock climbing gym. He has devoted his academic career to business development in the Middle East and wrote his thesis on foreign direct investment in Jordan, where he spent four months living and studying.

Art as Resistance in Palestine
Palestine
By Rich Wiles
06 Oct 2014

Arts and culture have always figured significantly within the wider context of Palestinian resistance. People such as Mahmoud Darwish, Ghassan Kanafani and Naji al-Ali took Palestine to the world through their art many decades ago, and their work - shaped heavily by the Palestinian experience of exile - lives on today.

Cultural aspects of resistance have developed over the decades and traditional practices of poetry, literature and dabke are now accompanied by street art, hip hop, modern dance and contemporary art. New styles and practices have evolved - often influenced by today's globalized world - but in many ways still maintaining a distinctly Palestinian edge.

Whilst links between Darwish's poetry or Naji al-Ali's immortal 'Handala' and today's hip hop groups or street artists may not seem immediate to the uninformed, the context is shaped by the same core issues. The Palestinian story of exile and the struggle against it remain a constant and inherent focus of Palestinian arts and cultural practice today, much as it did amongst earlier practitioners who had themselves lived, and survived the Nakba.

Protest and Funeral in the West Bank
Qalandia

July 24-25, 2014
Qalandia, West Bank

17-year-old Palestinian Mohammed al-Araj is laid to rest after being shot and killed during clashes with Israeli troops the previous night at the Qalandia checkpoint separating the West Bank from Jerusalem. Israeli security forces shot dead Mohammad and wounded 150 other people during the massive, 10 000 person protest in support of fellow Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. The confrontation, and several smaller skirmishes throughout Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem, came on Laylat al-Qadr, or Night of Destiny, when Muslims pray through the night as the holy month of Ramadan nears its end.

INTRODUCTION
In the small village of Taybeh (population: 1,500)—the last remaining fully Christian village in the West Bank—is Palestine’s first and only microbrewery. The brewery’s story began with the promise of peace and the Oslo Accords, when Nadim Khoury and his family returned to Taybeh in 1995 after 30 years in Boston. Nearly 20 years later, the obstacles to running a successful business in Palestine have not ceased. Last year, the brewery's annual Oktoberfest was canceled and forced to relocate to a smaller location outside of a Ramallah hotel, and precarious border regulations and regional instability continue to be an obstacle. Yet, the Khoury family has created a distinctly Palestinian microbrew that they sell in the West Bank and export to Israel, Japan and Sweden. This is the story of one small town and how its microbrewery is putting a different face on resistance.
