Featured Quote: John May

A bypass road from Beit Jala, Bethlehem to Gilo Tantur.

Checkpoint 300, from Bethlehem to Jerusalem.

"Planning is the method by which modern violence is done; clean, unspoken, 'just' violence.  It is less an act of design than an act of war, less cooperation than conquest, less color and light than sound and fury."

John May, from Verb Crisis, 2008
