    great gallery here guys. It must have been a really interesting experience visiting Sabra Shatila, scene of the bloody massacre. I’d be really interested to hear your views on the Israel-Palestine issue seeing as you are amongst some of the Palestinian diaspora, and so soon after Israel’s 60th birthday.
