Beyond what governments claim, what leaders promise, what citizens wish-- is reality. The actual day to day life continues in spite of the conflict. What of the people? The students, the religious leaders, the villagers and children? Their experiences are sometimes shaped by events entirely outside their control. Here are some sites which give you a more personal look at events which charge forward, sweeping real people along with them.
You absolutely must visit this site. Nigel Parry, a young Scottish journalist lives and works in Ramallah, among Palestinians. He describes life in the occupied territories with wry humor and a sense for what it really means to be a part of a conflict decades old. He treats violence and inhumanity with the same deprecation, whether the Palestinian Authority or the Israeli Defense Force is guilty. His site definitely features the plight of the underdog, the Palestinian in an occupied territory. The photos which accompany his diary bring the conflict to a much more personal level. Look into the faces of those who live with uncertainty.
