Mideast Palestinians Finding Family

  In this April 11, 2012 photo, Palestinian Ali Khatib, left, pours coffee in his home in the village of Shaab in northern Israel, where photos of his ancestors are displayed, as a woman watches. Khatib's family was split by Israel's creation, spreading his relatives to Syria, Denmark, Canada and Saudi Arabia. Social media have produced a boom in communications between Palestinians in Israel and the Arab world, once connected only through rare letters carried by intermediaries or the International Red Cross. Some Palestinians are finding their way back to each other through social media that know no borders. (AP Photo/Ben Hubbard)
