Despite the crippling poverty and frequent violence in the Palestinian territories, the city of Ramallah, the unofficial capital of the West Bank, holds out as an island of middle class existence. While armed militias rule the streets of Nablus and Gazans largely survive on U.N. food handouts, residents of Ramallah take yoga and Salsa dance classes or sip cappucinos and beer in mixed groups ? behavior that could get them killed ten miles outside of town.(AP Photo/Rachael Strecher)
