Tour Information

In 1917 the British gave away the land of Palestine to the Zionist Movement under the Belfour Declaration. As a result, in 1948, hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were displaced from their homes. Hundreds of Palestinian towns and villages were depopulated and demolished, 300,000 Palestinians were exiled from their homes and became refugees.

Almost 150,000 Palestinian were allowed to stay in the newly created “state of Israel” and were given Israeli citizenship. However, they were denied Israeli nationality, institutionalizing their lesser status. Today, Palestinian citizens of Israel make up one fifth of the total Israeli population and face discrimination in all parts of their lives.

“Israel” has always been portrayed as a very welcoming, enchanting and touristic place, with beautiful views and so much to offer. However, we never see the other side of picture. This tour will compare and contrast between the lavish life of the Israelis and the dark side of the occupation they enforce on the Palestinians to raise awarness about this issue.
