High-end condos for sale... in occupied Palestinian territories

"Save the Date, November 9, 2014 The Ramat Givat Ze'ev Real Estate Fair is Coming to Toronto! A once in the lifetime opportunity to live in the Jerusalem Hills…" -- advertisement, Oct. 30 edition of the Canadian Jewish News.

This vision of a North American suburban bubble in the bucolic vicinity of east Jerusalem seems oblivious to the daily and sometimes deadly clashes between Jews and Arabs over land and the Temple Mount in Israel's disputed capital. 

Ramat Givat Ze'ev is another new Jewish settlement sitting on land that Canada and the rest of the world recognizes should be part of a negotiated Palestinian state within Israel's occupied territories.

Photographer decries doctored image of Gaza protest

Photo: flickr/Evan

In 2012, photographer Sulejman Omerbasic was in Bosnia at a rally to support Gaza. He took a photo of a demonstrator -- a woman holding signs reading "Stop Israeli Terrorism" and "Free Gaza."

Two years later, his photo circulates on the internet with a different message. The sign held by the protestor has been altered to read "Stop Hamas Terrorism on Israel" and "Free Gaza from Hamas."
