This post is not meant to be a political/geographical response to the AIPAC fondling Newt Gingrich, as I believe there are a plethora of articles floating around which do their part in discrediting the blatant defamation that Palestinians are an “invented people”; instead this will be a photo-entry. I wish for others to see the people of Palestine before the occupation of their land. Before the creation of the apartheid state of “Israel”, in 1948.
The photographs can be found on Photographium, a historical photo archive meant for academic research.
