Beit Omar illustration

Beit Omar, an illustration originally published in Mondoweiss.

I was in a service going from Hebron to Jerusalem and passed the village of Beit Omar. The suffering the people of this village has faced over the years is unimaginable and has been documented in great detail by organizations like the International Solidarity Movement and the Palestine Solidarity Project. But on the day I drove by, it was just another day.. a guy operating his store, a woman hanging the clothes out, and two soldiers occupying their roof.
