#LovePalestine The Bill Press Show - September 11, 2018







Bill and Peter talk about Palestine today.



Trying to tell everyone about the dogs of Palestine.



Do you have any ideas about getting the word out on this important issue.



The dogs could really use a helping hand.....there are so many of them that are on their own.

Cycling The Countryside of Palestine



Go To Palestine--Ride a Bike--Get a Dog


#LovePalestine


Just wanted to let everyone know about an upcoming bike trip to Palestine.

I have been on it two times and it is a unique way to experience the Holy Land
and meet the very friendly folks of Palestine. George Snow runs the 8 day trip
two times a year and he has a special ability to make everyone feel included
regardless of their skills on a bike.


There is a van carrying extra bikes and plenty of water and one can ride at any time.
Some went on the tour for biking--there are some steep hills---and part of our group
went on the trip for religious, political or history reasons. My thing--the food is delicious
and I loved seeing the beautiful resorts, The Jordan river and The Dead Sea, etc. We
joined another bike group and toured the streets of Jericho along with the kids from a
local school. I could not stand not seeing the issues of the Middle East for myself and
this was a perfect way to do it.


The terrain reminds me of Julian with Olive groves and almond orchards instead of apples.
We also visited the Taybeh brewery. The Banksy Museum and The Walled Off hotel in Bethlehem
is an eye opener. the next trip is in Sept. George is in Italy and he loves to answers questions.
The trip is also through the Siraj Center in Bethlehem. And by the way can you please stop
at the animal shelter of Diana George Babish in Bethlehem and bring home a dog as you
get ready to head out. I have a ton of pictures and here is a post from George

George is an excellent source of information as he has been teaching in Palestine for several years.

Be a Pal of Mine in Palestine--Bike Palestine

Oh give me land, lots of land under starry skies above. Don't fence me in

Be a Pal of Mine in Palestine

OK. Let’s think about the next Bike Palestine tour starting 30th September. It will take the usual route from Jenin to Hebron then finally to Jerusalem. Two difficult days (the support bus is at hand for those sneaky hills) and 4 delightful days including a walk across the Jerusalem Wilderness. I have it mind that we should visit the new Turkish Bath in Nablus and the new aquarium in Ramallah which I was reading about today. So much to see in so little time. If we can’t get to see everything in the official tour then consider visiting (in your own time) the splendid Yasser Arafat museum in Ramallah and the new Museum of Palestine in Birzeit.
Presently I have 5 riders signed up and, as ever, I need 8 to break even. So hopefully a few of you reading this newsletter will decide that this is the time you will actually join me.
Last May we had a very successful tour. Our regular Sharon, from California, was with us. We joined forces with the Amos Centre to organise a cycle trip around Jericho with local kids and cyclists. Great fun and widely reported.
I’ve been running this tour for almost 10 years. In that time our riders have been a truly international bunch. Europeans, Americans, Africans and Australasians. Christians, Jews and atheists. They came because they were curious and wanted to see for themselves. Yes; it’s a hard life in Palestine- but the people are so delighted to see you. That you consider sharing their experience, in my opinion, lifts their spirits. So, be a ‘Pal of Mine’ and join me at the end of September. Details, and a booking form, to be found at the Bike Palestine site. www.bikepalestine.com
