Just like its production models, French automaker Citroen is known for producing odd, yet oddly likable concept cars. Merging obvious production vehicle allusions and never-gonna-happen design study gloss, the concepts are usually a mixed bag, but almost always eye-catching. Such is the case with the latest C-Aircross Concept, which was just revealed ahead of its in-the-metal debut at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show next month. Following on the heels of Citroen’s Aircross Concept revealed back in 2015, the latest Aircross is a compact crossover that previews an upcoming production version of the crossover destined to replace the current C3 Picasso MPV. Clearly, Citroen is far more interested in SUVs, and as such, the production variant of this concept will offer the same softroader cues, including a tall body style, large wheels, flared fenders, and space in the back for things.

Abdulhadi Hantash keeps records on the ever-increasing violence of Israel's illegal occupation in the Hebron area of the West Bank, including these figures from 2016. Hantash is a field consultant to the Palestinian Prime Minister for Wall and Settlement Affairs, and he chairs the non-profit organization, Land Defense Committee for the Hebron District in the West Bank, where he has worked as a land surveyor/cartographer for more than 30 years. He served on a special task force for the Geneva Conventions on human rights abuses for many years and testified in Israeli courts more than three hundred times. Hantash is particularly attuned to Israel's effort to give a veneer of legality through hundreds of military laws to its theft of Palestinian land, says my friend Mary Yoder, who met Hantash while volunteering with Christian Peacemaker teams in 2002.
