The settlement of Ofra with the outskirts of Ramallah in the background

Now, I know Ofra well. It is not next to Ramallah, not even close. Psagot is next to Ramalla, and Beit El is to the northeast of it, but Ofra is much further northeast. That photo is doctored or taken at such a distorted angle, that it bears no resemblance to the truth.
There are a few small Arab houses directly across the road from Ofra. The larger buildings are much, much further away. I'll have to try to photograph them. The picture is a master of distortion or just a montage.
Besides that, why can't we build? The Arabs are building. Look at those brand new buildings!
