week end in occupied Golan and South Lebanon

Welcome !











wonderful landscapes....


the best chicken barbecue ever...


apples and apples everywhere


the Holy Sea of Galilee


winter sports activities...


But also....


typical landscape


typical house from Majdal shams, one the 5 Syrian villages remaining ( from 164 prior 1967)










with its now typical decoration...


friendly atmosphere






Why would they keep the Mosque if barely all Muslims have been forcibly displaced....
What about international law about the protection of religious buildings ? I guess some countries are above law.





typical scene of an ambulance delayed at a check point. This village is situated on the very border with Lebanon.



As usual, Israeli occupation and colonization means families separated. The white house on the background is under Syrian control. Inhabitants use to communicate through megaphones from one side to the other with their relatives, friends...

and of course discrimination in access to water (and its implications for farmers), building permits, land stealing, history denial, arbitrary detentions...
