Love under Apartheid


Ethan (who drew the above cartoon) writes:

I am writing to spread a very cool project this Valentine's Day to which I am proud to have contributed a very small amount: a new website, Love Under Apartheid, a space for Palestinians to tell their stories of how Israeli policies of separation and apartheid have kept them from having a happy Valentine's Day.

You can check out the introductory video to the project at, of all places, FunnyOrDie.

And view the video testimonies at and find them on Facebook.

You can also follow the twitter hashtag #LoveUnderApartheid.
