“There are two roads leading to the Abraham Mosque in Hebron, Palestine. The roads are side by side, separated only by a fence and barbed wire. One of the roads is for the Jewish settlers of Hebron, and the other is for the Palestinians.


The settler’s side is a nice, clean, asphalt-paved road, easily accessible for everyone, including the elderly and those with disabilities.
