Palestine's Winchester Mystery House

"Less is more"
 Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

Or maybe not.

Welcome to the house of Palestinian businessman Mohamed Abdel-Hadi, located on a hillside near Hebron in the town of Kharas.   Clearly his architect was not familiar with the works or the writings of Van der Rohe (1886-1969), one of the 20th century's greatest architects.

The home is located on over 30 dunams of land. According to the blog Mohamed Abdel-Hadi made his fortune in the construction industry, and helped oversee the design and the construction.

There is tremendous wealth in the Palestinian territories, and there is tremendous poverty.  It is the same in Israel, and in America, and all over the world. The Palestinians are not "special" in this regard.  The lie that must be disputed over and over is that the Palestinians somehow have a monopoly on  victimhood and suffering, and that it is solely the fault of the "occupation" . Perhaps a day will come when activists remove their blinders and see the role of the Palestinian leadership in perpetuating the misery of their own people
