Photographs of the Palestinian territories : modern islamo-fascism epicenter

When I was in Jerusalem, I met a guy who was Palestinian and Christian. He told me, with prooves, that he had been the guide of the photographer of the Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ.
His name was Charlie. Charlie met the photographer (Kevin Duncan) at a hotel and toured him around the holy places where Jesus was born, lived and died.
With Charlie, I was able to get to the Palestinians territories which are not allowed for Israeli and not advised for solo travellers. Many pilgrims go to Bethleem and Jericho, but usually they don't stop in the city but rush to the holy sites and come back. With Charlie, I went into the palestinian society, I met a lot of people (christian, muslims) and I was able to realize what was going on over there. Make no mistake : most Palestinians are gravely antisemitic, and I have not heard anyone telling something balanced about the Jews.
So I went to Bethleem, I made photographs of the Israel Security Fence. I went to Jericho too. It is not dangerous as long as you are on a tour or with a palestinian driver. When Charlie asked me if I wanted to go to Ramallah, I hesitate.
Ramallah is not a place of tourists, and except Arafat's tumb (I hate this guy), there is nothing to see. But on my point of view, if was a unique occasion to go inside one of the most dangerous and instable place in the world.
I earned the title a few deserved from my driver. I was a "CT" for "Crazy Tourist". We didn't stop in Ramallah, except near the PA campound where Arafat is buried and where Fatah's leader Abou Mazen has his headquearters. At the time we left, white jeeps rushed to the campound and we learnt Abou Mazen was coming back, we had to leave.
Frankly I didn't want to stop in the center of Ramallah. So my photographs are not really amazing because I stayed in the car and they were taken while driving. I learnt the day after my trip that the IDF had closed the city and lauched a raid to find terrorists there. A big battle occurred near the campound I had photographed earlier, and maybe the soldiers I met there are not alive by now.
Anyway, you will be able to have a glimpse into the life of Ramallah, the check points and the Security Fence.
One thing to remind you before showing you the photos. Ramallah enjoyed the 911 attacks. It is, definitely, one of the worst epicenter of islamo-fascism in the world, where 90% of the young people (who represent 60% of the population) wish Israelis and Americans to be anihilate.
Do you want to know which enemy you are fighting ? Look at it.

Check point to enter Ramallah. This check point is famous because fightings occurres frequently.
Israeli tower of defense burnt by Molotov cocktails. The fight occurred two days before I went in. It was the first sight I gad while entering the city, I let you imagine how I was.

More to come.
Believe me, there is not much debate about the fence when you are actually on the ground.
It is a shame Israel gave territories to the palestinian authority. It has meant only more terrorist attacks and deaths.
The lesson has to be taken by Americans also with Iraq : if you withdraw, the enemy takes the ground and lauches attacks to kill you.

"Will liberals undertsand this once ?"They understand it now. It's just that their hatred for America and George Bush overpowers all reason.

Detail of Ramallah's center. Islamo-fascism hypocrisy : modern advertisements of white family enjoying life to sell products to fudamentalists who cover their wives under veils ! The picture is not perfect, as I wrote above. I wanted to LEAVE this place as soon as possible !!!

Nice pictures. I guess FReepers have reporters everywhere.
I'm not sure I would be brave enough.

Building hit by missiles near the Palestinian Authority HQ. The hit were old. It dated when Arafat was trapped during months by the IDF in 2002.
Market in the center of Ramallah
Center of Ramallah. This area is famous because it is here IDF frequently stops while raiding the city. You can see posters glorifying terrorists on the fountain.
The way back to civilization, passing the check points.

Thanks for posting your pictures! Americans don't get to see much of anything of the "palestinian" territories because frankly the news is censored here by the leftist media. Anything that reveals the true nature of the "palestinians" is censored by the left-wing media. Please post more photos when get a chance to do so.

Excellent pics. I like the roadside hot coffee pot in the bottom picture: the street vendors are competing with

This picture looks familiar. I think this is where they hanged the Palestinian "collaborators" a couple of years ago.

You are probably right.
My driver told me this place was "famous" and appeared frequently on TV.
I will make some researchs on the web about this.
