While Jewish students are blown to bits in Jerusalem,
PoorPalestinian students learn English in Ram Allah

Palestinian students study English at a school near a section of the
separation fence Israel is building between Rafat village south of
Ramallah and Jerusalem in the West Bank town of Ramallah,
Sunday, Feb. 22, 2004. On the eve of world court hearings in the
Hague, Netherlands, Palestinian students across the West Bank
listened to a lesson about the barrier, including descriptions about
how it separates farmers from their land, students from their schools
and divides families. (AP Photo/Muhammed Muheisen)

Nasser al-Qidwa, who will lead the Palestinian prosecution against the barrier at The Hague, said Sunday’s attack would not hamper their arguments.

“From the point of view of the court I don’t think it’s damaging frankly, because the court is dealing with the law,” he told AFP.
