Palestinians or Israelis – demonstrators in Sheikh Jarrah on Friday dressed as blue people from Pandora

Demonstrators dressed and made up as the underdog blue Nav’i people from Pandora in the film Avatar participated, as shown here, in the now-traditional Friday demonstration against eviction of Palestinian refugees from the homes built for them in the 1950s by UNRWA in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of East Jerusalem, when this area was under Jordanian administration.

And, here (as we reported yesterday) are the other blue people who turned out to demonstrate earlier on Friday, in the West Bank village of Bil’in, where the protest was directed against The Wall being constructed by the Israeli military — in this case, on confiscated Palestinian land — in order to separate areas of Palestinian and Israeli population.
