Many families have become segregated after the Israeli occupation regime completed the construction of the wall which runs through Palestinian lands. This is just one of thousands of cases.

We read this ethnography in anthropology and the author told the story of this Swiss heiress that was frolicking around South American and she met this Huaorani man in Ecuador and went back to his village with him to visit and she was just messing around but then he said: “ I invite you to be my wife. I invite you to stay and live with me here in the forest where we are safe from all the dangers of the world. I will protect you with heart of a jaguar and we will have many children. I have made this crown for you.”
She said no, but I’d have been like “Oh well ok if you say so, why not. I will stay in this forest forever”
