Hi all..

it was so exciting to find all these comment! thank you!
it looks like a whole community out here, and i'm looking forward to check your blogs (those who have ones).

well, time to introduce myself:
I work as an editor at Ma'an Independent News Agency in Bethlehem/West Bank.the agency's main outlet is on the internet (www.maannews.net), and it's available in 3 languages: Arb, Heb and Eng. i translate news from Arabic to Hebrew and edit the Hebrew page.

i was born in Musmus, a small village of 3000 next to Umm El Fahem in the Triangle area. (northern center, between Hadera and Nazeteth).
i moved to Jerusalem in 2000, and got to the Hebrew University there. I studied Journalism and English Linguistics, after dropping Law School coz it was boring!

in the meantime i also teach English for Bagrut (final high school exams in Israel) in East Jerusalem.

i'm at work right now, so i'll stop here.

till the next post..

Peace yo

I suppose the situation in Palestine and Israel a real mystery for many people

You can say that again! I would like to visit Bethlehem some day. If you had to guess, what percentage of the people in Bethlehem speak English, speak Hebrew, speak Arabic?
