Tents and Tombstones: Bedouins in Isr...
Al-Araqib

al-Araqib, Israel

Al Araqib is one of the 46 Bedouin villages in the Negev desert that the state of Israel refuses to recognize. The residents of the village, both past and present, inherited these lands from their fathers and grandfathers. Harassment from the Israeli Army and vigilanties has become commonplace for the Araqib Bedouin. The harassment dates back to 1948, when a gang of Zionist militants rounded up 14 Bedouin men working in a field in al-Araqib and summarily executed them. Since 1948, homes and properties in al-Araqib have been regularly destroyed and stolen. On July 27th, 2010, the village was totally demolished. Since then, the village has been re-built and destroyed 33 times. However, many residents were unable to stay and moved to the recognized village of Rahat. Those who did choose to stay are confined to the area of the Al-Turi cemetary and have been living under harsh conditions, always scared of an unexpected visit from the soldiers.

al-Hanboushe, Syria

10 year old Abdullah suffers from burns on the lower part of his body that he received six months ago from an exploding shell. His family is unable to afford any medicine or treatment for his burns and, consequently, Abdullah is immobile and unable to attend school or work to support his family. He lives in his besieged, war torn village of Al Hanboushe, in Syria's Idlib province, with his mother, his ill father, and his siblings. His family shares a small, two-room house with his Aunt, who's husband was killed recently in an air raid, his grandparents, and his five cousins. Food is scarce and there are no able bodied adult males to provide for the family; Abdullah's grandfather is too old and frail to work.

Given that there is no one in Abdullah's family who is able to work, the family is forced to live off of the kindness of their neighbors and any food they can find in the surrounding fields. In short, Abdullah's family's daily existence is one of physical pain, boredom and hopelessness, with little end of the suffering in sight.
