    1. The photo of the policeman posting a sign on a closed shop has symbolism: his arms vanish into imprisoned nonexistence.

      The first photograph is like a micro-cosmos of the conflict:
      1. No fear at all from those who are allegedly afraid of IDF brutal treatment.
      2. There are as many journalists\photographers as participants (I can see 3)
      3. There’s a kid taking part in the “peaceful” demonstration

      All we’re missing is youth throwing stones, a woman giving birth on the jeep and someone being carried to an ambulance…

    3. I believe what you published was actually very logical. But, think
      on this, what if you typed a catchier post title? I mean, I
      don’t wish to tell you how to run your website, however suppose you added a headline that makes people
      desire more? I mean From settlement protests to settlement
      construction: A week in photos – July 4-10 | +972 Magazine is a little boring.
      You could glance at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create article headlines to grab
      people to open the links. You might try adding a video or
      a related pic or two to get readers interested about everything’ve written.
      In my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.
