Ein Gedi South District, Israel

Ein Gedi(South District, イスラエル)|Israel Study Tour 2012(Sumire Susie Nakamuraさん)

The first day of my tour was a mess. I was waiting for my friends to pick me up at the airport, but no one came. As I called their hostel, the receptionist told me no one was about to pick me up. Though I waited until midnight in exhaustion, I decided to hop on a van with some strangers. Being afraid whether if I would make it or not, I was lucky enough to befriend a Jew named George, who happened to be a jewelry shop owner and an Italian mormon. Gladly, the van stopped at my destination and the old Italian mormon with a hairy long beard was nice enough to stay with me at the hostel lobby. He eased me with his warm words while I was waiting for my friends to come out.
I heard some footsteps coming down to 1st floor, and there I found my friend. As soon as I was about to jump in the room and get some rest, I was gasped by their plans - sightseeing tour around Jerusalem.
Even though I was so ready to take a shower and get some sleep, 15 minutes later, I found myself in the tour bus with my friends to go on an adventure.

Top of Masada South District, Israel

Top of Masada(South District, イスラエル)|Israel Study Tour 2012(Sumire Susie Nakamuraさん)

Our first stop was Ein Gedi and Masada.
It was like hiking on a huge rock, nothing to be seen around, just land. We saw the Ein Gedi, the oasis from the top of Masada. It had a beautiful scenery.

Via Dolorosa Palestine

Via Dolorosa(パレスチナ)|Israel Study Tour 2012(Sumire Susie Nakamuraさん)

Went to the Old City, walled area within the modern city of Jerusalem that has a deep significance to the three monotheistic religions. Once passed Via Dolorosa (the way of grief), we found a caved wall where the Jews place their hand on. According to the guide book, this remark is where Jesus stumbled upon from carrying a cross on his back and walking on the way to crucifixion.

パレスチナ自治区に入るとき、「ここから先、ユダヤ人の立ち入りは命の保証をしない」という警告が目に入ってきた。 この警告にもかかわらず、ヘブロンにはイスラエル軍が駐留し、不法なユダヤ人入植者が後を絶たない。 街の至る所にある「警告」の文字。侵入者を阻むゲートと、鉄条網。 イブラヒムモスクに至る道には、頭上の監視小屋に銃を持ったイスラエル兵がこちらを窺っている。 パレスチナ人の家の屋上に上がらせてもらい、もみあげの長く、ユダヤ帽をかぶった超正統派の子供たちが雪合戦しているのが見えた。 彼らは不法な入植者たちで、もともとの住人であるパレスチナ人を迫害し、その土地を奪っている。 ヘブロンではパレスチナ人と軍との間に衝突が絶えない。 僕たちの目には、被害者と加害者は明白なのだが、しかし、ユダヤ人の目には、父祖の地を異教徒から奪還するための戦いと映っているのかもしれないのだ。 このことから分かるのは、人は正当化できる理由さえあれば、どんな非道の行いでもなしうるということだ。 ヘブロンで起きていることは、決して他人事ではないのである。
