Umm Forat

I'm an Israeli lawyer, Jewish, married to a Palestinian resident of Ramallah. After years of wandering throughout the world, we returned to the West Bank with our two children, five year-old Forat and two year-old Adam. We are trying to lead ordinary lives in an extraordinary and unforgiving reality, one that I will share with you here. I have changed the names of people in the blog, including my own. "Umm Forat" means "Mother of Forat" in Arabic.
