The two women are among a small number of Instagram stars in the blockaded Palestinian enclave, showing followers a different side of their homeland from what much of the world may be used to hearing or seeing.The women use Instagram, with its focus on pictures over text and political arguments, to show another side.Nassar's pictures range from young children to harvests, all bathed in a range of colours, while Mosabah shows all sides of daily life.Both women feature heavily in their own pictures, with wide smiles.A United Nations official recently said the Gaza Strip may already be "unlivable".The toy car, an old Volkswagen Beetle Nassar carries in her bag at all times and which features in dozens of her photos, has become a trademark helping her connect with others.People from across the Arab world now send her pictures of the real cars, which she posts on her page.Instagram is of course a selective version of life, with the women taking dozens of pictures before deciding on their favorite ones to show the world.For Nassar, it has even strayed into the real world.Once she was taking pictures in Beit Lahia, one of Gaza's most conservative areas, when women started screaming at her.
