A visual experience of the terror Israelis live with constantly.
Description: Bombs. Peace. Tanks. Fear. Hope. Despair. The current Intifada displayed in photos.
Television audiences might be forgiven for believing that the nightly news presents the whole picture of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The broadcasts are by now familiar. A blown out Israeli bus. Survivors sitting by the roadside. Israeli tanks rolling into dusty Arab villages. The words "cycle of violence," "terror," and "retaliation."

But how does it feel to be walking down a street, knowing that at any moment, the next explosion might engulf you and those around you? What is it like to go to work or school on a bus - in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv or Haifa, hoping it will remain intact for the journey.
262 Color Photos about The "Matzav" State of Siege is a unique, controversial, and thought-provoking artistic critique of the situation in Israel today, conceived and created by the young Israeli artist, Doron Goldenberg, a graduate of the Bezalel Art Academy in Jerusalem. In this powerful work, through the use of both words and images, Goldenberg captures a sense of the impact of terror that can't be broadcast on television. He has also created a visual tool that conveys a mood - a sensation - that can't be communicated via a news-commentator. .
