Here are my photographs from the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem. This was the most beautiful site I have ever visited. The mosque is spectacularly colourful. The blues and greens of the mosaic tile which cover it contrast the golden dome. The space around the mosque, where groups of men and women sat around talking is known as the sanctuary, reflecting its tranquility. The stone was dazzlingly white under the Middle Eastern sunshine.

I hope that these photographs do its beauty some justice…

Restiamo Umani

” We must remain human, even in the most difficult times …
Because, despite everything, there must always be humanity within us. We have to bring it to others.” Vittorio Arirgoni

Vittorio Arirgoni was an Italian reporter and solidarity activist with the International Solidarity Movement. He entered Gaza in 2008 via the first Free Gaza mission to break Israel’s siege of the area and stayed in Gaza until his death. He was assassinated in Gaza on 15th April 2011.
