    beautiful capture 1/2 portrait, 1/2 photo j in a certain way; as I look at this and the darkness, I find myself wondering how much of this she realizes at her age; what is her awareness of her own situation, your post and pics are engaging Wissam

    First you tell a respected member of JPG that you are going to block him because he is Israeli and then you post this - grow up a bit, why don't you?

    alex ringer said (13 Jun 2008):

    No doubt; this is a powerful picture and great portrait.
    BUT, Nour couldn't be born in Safed (Tzfat) -Palestine, 60 years ago. It's a manipulation of a young girl's photo for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on the back of '48 refugees which the Arab countries neglected and abused for 60 years. The 1948 War which led to the situation you try to lighten by this picture broke by the invasion of the Arab armies to Israel and constant attacks on Israeli citizens, and the rest is history.
