Arab School Children
I encountered these schoolchildren just down the road from the other boys featured in the previous photo. These children, belonging to an Arab schoolgroup, are nevertheless Israeli citizens. Their chaperones, many of them women, wear headscarves in traditional Muslim style. As far as I can tell they all enjoy the rights and freedoms of any other Israeli citizen, they were extremely boisterous as you can tell from this photograph. They all greeted me with an emphatic, "Shalom!"
