+972 Magazine is owned by our bloggers and journalists, who are driven by passion and dedication to the causes we cover. But we still need to pay for editing, photography, translation, web design and servers, legal services, and more.

As an independent journalism outlet we aren’t beholden to any outside interests. In order to safeguard that independence voice, we are proud to count you, our readers, as our most important supporters.

      This is an incredibly moving video for any Palestinian to watch. This is the closest any of these people have ever gotten to their homeland.
      .
      The Syrians of Majdal Shams who were there to meet them start out by yelling at them to go back (presumably because of the landmines), but either they can’t hear or are too excited to care. Around the 4:00 mark, the Majdalis give up warning them and start saying “Allah yi7meekon” (God protect you).
      .
      It’s such a shame that this joyous scene was followed by bloodshed at the hands of the occupier.
