Take down the Israeli wall!

One of the repugnant features of Israeli apartheid is the wall separating Israel from the West Bank & Gaza & the security checkpoints Palestinians must use to enter the country that was once their own. This is Ramadan & Palestinian Muslims want to worship at the Al-Aqsa mosque, one of the holiest sites in Islam, located in the Old City of Jerusalem. Palestinians living in East Jerusalem are reportedly allowed to enter Al-Aqsa without restrictions but Israel places severe restrictions on Palestinians from  Gaza & the West Bank both for traveling to the mosque & entering it. Here a Palestinian woman deals with Israeli soldiers at a checkpoint as she tries to get to Al-Aqsa. You don’t have to know Arabic to read the indignation & contempt on her face. Support her right to travel & worship where she wants; boycott all Israeli products (barcode 729).   (AFP photo)

This video of Pink Floyd singing "Song for Palestine" has shots of the wall in all its shame and images of the damage done to Gaza by the aerial bombardment of Israel:
