Yesterday Rachael Strecher, photographer-genius, and I went to the Qalandia (pronounced ga-LAN-diya) checkpoint to see the Security.Separation.Apartheid Wall as it cuts through the land. It so happens Banksy’s pieces are here too. We walked along the wall while talking to a couple of really nice guys, Mua3tasr and Nasr, about the situation. Both were teenagers who studied water resource management in a techincal high school in Ramallah. They had never seen Jerusalem. They carry the wrong color id cards. They asked me, “will Barack Obama change this?” Fuck. I don’t know. I hope so.
