West Bank Wall Soccer

DSCN0497

Warming Glow posted an Israeli cell phone commercial in which some Palestinians kick a ball over the West Bank Wall and the Israeli soldiers kick it back, starting a fun game. Also posted is a Palestinian response in which they kick the ball over and tear gas is thrown back.

Having been to the wall (that is actually my photo above) I know that there would never be a lighthearted game between Israeli soldiers and Palestinians. It is actually a shockingly insensitive commercial. Though I am generally pro-Israel, the wall situation is incredibly awful, essentially creating the new Apartheid. I don’t know how I feel about the Jewish nation building ghettos.
