(BETHLEHEM) - My access to email maybe limited for 10 days as I will be on traveling giving talks mostly in Minnesota, USA. If you are in the area and would like to get together see my schedule posted here http://qumsiyeh.org/upcomingevents/ and of course the rest of the year, I am in Palestine and always welcome visitors.

Here we are beginning the olive harvest season and settlers and soldiers of the occupation try to destroy and restrict harvest but people do their best.  Here is an article I wrote three years ago about Olives and their significance in Palestine: http://sabbah.biz/mt/archives/2009/10/20/palestinian-olives/
