The Israeli West Bank barrier is a security and separation barrier under construction by the State of Israel along and within the West Bank. The painting here depicting the german shepherd attacking the Palestinian woman is created from a photograph that was taken in the West Bank during altercations between Israeli security forces and Palestinians over the building of the barriers. This guard tower is now abandoned by the ISF after continual attacks during the second intifada.

The Israeli West Bank barrier is a security and separation barrier under construction by the State of Israel along and within the West Bank. This mural is one of the most elaborate and is a Palestinian rendition of the famous painting from the 1830s by Eugene Delacroix commemorating the French Revolution. The large "WHATEVER" behind the painting is a feeling felt by many Palestinian youth of any glorifying successful revolution against their occupiers.

Rachel Havrelock is a scholar of the Hebrew Bible and its historical interpretation. She is an associate professor of Jewish Studies and English at the University of Illinois at Chicago and the author of three books as well as the writer/director of the play, From Tel Aviv to Ramallah. Her latest work, River Jordan: The Mythology of a Dividing Line (2011, University of Chicago Press), examines five national myths in the Hebrew Bible and examines which have had political currency and which have been repressed.

In this edited selection from an interview recorded on November 22, 2011 in San Francisco, she argues that while certain biblical interpretations favor expansion and conquest, others may provide an inspiration for coexistence, while colonial ideas of partition and rigid borders need to be thrown out to favor a new post-national model.

Achcar's latest work is The Arabs and the Holocaust: The Arab-Israeli War of Narratives, published in 2010 by Metropolitan Books.
