Here’s something you only see in Palestine … Kindergarteners crying during a graduation ceremony in the eastern town near Bethlehem because of tear gas used by Israeli forces invading the kindergarten area …

Palestinians perform Jumu’ah prayer in front of the Apartheid Wall and Israeli soldiers during a protest calling for the release of Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli jails, in the West Bank town of Bethlehem, April 4, 2014. Israel said Thursday it has cancelled the planned release of Palestinian prisoners because the Palestinian leadership formally applied for membership in 15 international conventions and treaties. (Photo: Ammar Awad / Reuters)

The Palestinian Museum, due to open in mid-2015, hung banners in Bethlehem’s Manger Square for their “In The Presence of the Holy See” exhibition, focusing on Catholic imagery contrasted with Palestinian suffering. Thousands of Palestinian Christians greeted Pope Francis at the Square where he held an open air mass on Sunday 25 May 2014. (Click images for captions.)
