Palestinian Refugees in Syria "Infiltrate" Majdal Shams

This made us clog up with tears. The man videoing the whole thing is repeatedly yelling at the crowd not to get too close thinking that there are explosive mines between the borders. As the refugees climbed over the fence, he said, "This is what liberation looks like." Majdal Shams is a village in the Golan Heights, along the so-called border line. Imagine that kind of pressure on the borders if not every day then every week. With the proper media coverage and the predicted Israeli response of murder, this will serve to expose yet another crack in the image Israel shoves down the throat of the west, and a step closer for Palestinian self-determination and liberation.
