Never a Land Without People - Compilation
Joel Eel - Soft Bedding

May 15th 2018 marked the 70th anniversary of Al Nakba, a day to commemorate the more than 750,000 Palestinians that were displaced from their homes, with hundreds of villages also being destroyed, following the 1948 Israeli Declaration of Independence. Today, these refugees and their descendants make up several million people divided throughout the Middle East.

May 15th 2018 was also the official opening of the new U.S Embassy in Jerusalem, which originally sat in Tel Aviv alongside all other foreign consulates in Israel. By moving the embassy to Jerusalem, U.S President Donald Trump officially acknowledged Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, despite warnings of the civil unrest this would certainly cause.

In the days leading up to and following the opening of the new embassy, Israeli forces have killed 121 unarmed Palestinians protesters and injured more than 13,000. The death toll continues to rise each day.

Beyond these senseless killings, the everyday life of Palestinians along the Gaza strip and West Bank is difficult at best. Since September of 2000, the Israeli government has been constructing a wall along the West Bank, now more than 440 miles in length, it cuts deeply into legally agreed Palestinian land and isolates more than 25,000 Palestinians. The majority of towns surrounding the wall are agricultural, and many of the farmers in these towns have had their land cut in half — unable to access their crops, and their livelihood, without passing through time consuming checkpoints guarded by armed soldiers. The wall also leaves Palestinians unable to access proper healthcare in Israel. To put the seriousness of the situation into perspective, a 10 minute ambulance ride from a nearby town into Jerusalem has increased to 110 minutes due to checkpoints.

100% of the proceeds from this compilation will be donated to Adalah, a Palestinian-run non-profit organization dedicated to defending the human and legal rights of Arab minorities in Israel. During last months protests, Adalah was on the front lines providing legal aid to peaceful protesters. For more information on Adalah and their work, visit
