Picture of shame not honour

Recently an Israeli photographer Oded Balilty was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for photographs taken at Amona of which this was one.

Sultan Knish has blogged this story with additional pictures and most importantly covers what happened to the 15 year old girl, Nili, shown attempting to hold back the Kapos of Israel.

Her words are particularly poignant.

Cruelty and violence in Amona did not break us, on the contrary, they tempered us. Policemen in black do not frighten us. They can break our heads, but they will not break our spirit.
