Today as we drove along the highway the cuts through the West Bank and connects commuters from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, we flicked through the radio channels. Arabic. Hebrew. Arabic. Hebrew. A famous Israeli actor was accused of sexual harrasment. Flick: Arabic--a house in Nablus was tear-gassed last night. Click: Frank Sinatra's "May Way" sung in Hebrew. Flick: a house was demolished in E. Jerusalem. Back to Hebrew: a woman calls to give testimony against the actor. Arabic- a teenager was arrested in the middle of the night. Listening to the news here, it's two completely different realities.

Greetings from the Unholy Land.
