Art exhibit canceled after dispute over boycott of Israel
Dror Yaron’s photograph of Daoud Nassar of Tent of Nations, a peace project located on the 100-acre Nassar family farm near Bethlehem. In the foreground are portraits of his ancestors. The Nassar family purchased this land in 1916. On May 19, 2013, the Israeli military bulldozed and destroyed between 1,500 and 2,000 mature, fruit-bearing apricot and apple trees and grape vines on the Nassar family farm, along with the terraced land. Tent of Nations operates by the motto, “We Refuse to Be Enemies,” hosting international visitors and volunteers, offering activities for local youth, and running educational projects for women in a nearby village.
