B Translate the following paragraph : In the United States of America, there is a famous " health club" specialized in activities that exercise the brain. It helps people get their brains in shape by keeping it balanced and healthy. Although this club is quite expensive, people who join find it quite useful and interesting. These members have the choice to either do brain teasers or solve math problems for certain periods of time. Since most people are either left or right brain dominant, they train members to use their less dominant hemisphere by activities they rarely do in their daily routine. This not only strengthens the less dominant hemisphere, but it also allows the dominating one to rest.

Daily life for them often means sitting in the dark, unprotected homes under curfew for days or sometimes even weeks without a break to open their door and go outside. They hear the sounds of military tanks which smash the houses and destroy anything in their path. They see crushed cars and hear neighbours who scream from fear or pain. They wait in fear to hear the sound of the boots of Israeli soldiers, who are coming to take their fathers, brothers, uncles or cousins. Sometimes they witness their family members taken away or even shot. Nevertheless,they keep fighting the occupation patiently and ask the world to help them free their land.

A Read the article and answer the questions that follow. By Isabelle Humphries - 30 / 04 / 2002 I come from a Christian family in the south of England. At school, we were shown many pictures and videos of the Holocaust and the abuse of the human rights of the Jews under the Nazis. But nobody has ever shown us anything about the crimes against the people in Jenin and Nablus. Nobody ever told us how many Palestinians, both Muslim and Christian, were killed by Israelis. Years later, when I grew up, I moved to Nazareth to work with an Arab human rights organization in the occupied land in September 2000. During that time, I was an eyewitness to the Israeli cruelty. I saw how they abused, killed and harmed the Palestinians. I became totally involved with the matter. I stayed there for a year and a half. During that time, I was ready to risk my life to make a difference. I participated in protests, wrote letters and sent pictures to news papers . Some people advised me that I should leave and go back home because this has nothing to do with me. But I felt that it has a lot to do with me; we live in a global society, It’s everybody’s responsibility to engage in the struggle for justice. This responsibility turns into pleasure when you make connection with the people you want to help. During my experience, the Palestinians have shown great acceptance and hospitality. At the same time, I was glad to see the harmony and respect between Muslims and Christians that I have never experienced back in my own society. This and many memories will always be part of my life.

The wall will physically separate the city of Jerusalem with its two parts, East and west, from the West Bank. The Israeli plan will take possession of more lands from the West Bank. The Separation Wall around Jerusalem looks very much like the Berlin wall to me. I think it will be good to look back and try to avoid the mistakes from the past.

The Saudi Agricultural Bank offers interest-free loans, which are used to finance investments and operations in various agricultural projects. Local farmers are increasingly diversifying their production to take advantage of modern methods of irrigation that are successfully used in the production of vegetables Today, the agricultural sector, that has the latest techniques, produces a variety of goods to meet the local needs, and export excess supplies to countries across the globe.

Sharon and my Mother-in-Law, is a tragically funny book by Suad Amiry . She is Palestinian who has lived most of her life under Israeli occupation. She has developed a unique sense of humour that helped her live through that situation. In her book, she shows how she has been able to use this sense of humour to her advantage.

y dm n a aw ron Sha er-in-L h Mot miry

dA Sua

by In the introduction, Amiry mentions the importance of being able "to step out of the frame and observe the senselessness of the moment " and that it is "a valuable self-defence mechanism against the Israeli occupation of our lives and souls." It is a skill necessary to stay reasonable when one is helpless to stop the panic and fear around her.” In one of the stories, Amiry recalls how she was able to cross the Jerusalem checkpoint by telling an Israeli soldier that her pet, needs her to drive her to Jerusalem. Amiry narrates, "All it takes is a bit of humour," and that is what the book is about.

The stories in the book show how Palestinians make their lives liveable by finding humor in the situation they are in. Like when Amiry’s husband Salim gets arrested during curfew not because he was breaking curfew, but because Amiry was refusing a soldier’s orders to stop looking at him. Later she describes her husband, Salim, going to court under the charge of having a wife who refused to stop staring at a soldier. Amiry stresses the funny side of the story and leaves it to the reader to think of the tragedy within. In the book, Amiry describes the fear and panic during the Israeli invasion of Ramallah,. After the invasion of the city in 2002, people remained under curfew for an entire month. The story shows how Amiry becomes impatient with her mother-in-law. Um Salim, who insists on taking her jewellry every time she leaves home. Amiry says " Never mind, just leave it. We’ll come back and get it." Her mother-in-law replies, " That’s what we said in 1948 when we left our house in Jaffa.” One of the most interesting part of the book is the conflict between Amiry and UmSalim during the curfew. To me, it was shocking how conflicts between husbands and wives, and parents and their children multiply easily when families are kept inside their homes for a long time.


Revision

Amiry also gives the readers an idea about the history of the Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem through UmSalim’s story as a refugee. UmSalim expresses her fear of possibly being forced out from her home again. Here Amiry succeeded in making the reader sympathize with the 91-year-old Um Salim, who is frustrated yet at the same time remarkably calm . Sharon and my Mother-in-Law may not be a great literary work, but Amiry powerfully pictures the misery of life under Israeli occupation.Her description of the people in Ramallah is rich because of her style and her presentation of the problems. The book is interesting to read, as Amiry provides the human stories that news reports often ignore.
