Interesting image and after reading your comment to Leah here comment I'm even more curious to why they are standing there.

Thank you so much for your comment Leah. Don't be sorry, if you think it's terrible then you should say so.

In answer to your question there are two reasons:
1. On a general level as a photographer I saw something unusual happening and took a shot.
2. On a more specific level, I never once thought of them as "a group of sick people". I'd be interested to know why you say that. To my eyes I found it refreshing to see Jews and Palestinians standing side by side and working together for a common cause. Night after night we see pictures on our tv of Jewish People and Arabic people fighting each other. We see pictures of of fear, of hatred, of violence and repression. I do not like this. I want to see a world where everyone gan get along. When I saw this scene it gave me hope that perhaps people can get along together. My one regret at the moment, is not that I portrayed these people, but that I didn't take the time to talk to them. That way I'd have been in a better position to decide for myself whether they are sick or not.
