they dance!

30 Jan

Often I am asked how my friends in Palestine are doing. Answer: They have little reason to dance, but they dance anyway! Seen here is the traditional Palestinian “dabka” dance during a street celebration at Christmas in Beit Jala. Living under military occupation, these Palestinian youth are not responding by throwing stones or doing any other form of violence. They are dancing! Being joyful under struggle and stress is the most powerful form of resistance.
