9:42 pm
into your yard out of in a solitary grave we could say it's all too obscure that he was a doctor and a highly respected man sure he could you do now he lives here practically alone like a dog but the other very few people come to visit some key of surgery and most of them come to spit on his grave yet he says it will crush i would never dare to lay flowers by his grave or the coil but neither would i dare to spit on a trajectory crusher you saw something for you you can. damn what he did it affect . clinton who am i to condemn another condone nor condemn it. but naturally i don't approve of it but. here are the palestinians have a different perspective. though in the there is no end to the conflict because our fundamental rights are constantly under attack nobody can live under colonialization a one nobody no arabs not even a stone or what

9:44 pm
authorities consider regular settlements legal but not the dozens of so-called outposts by settlers claim land simply by installing pool cabins. their hope is for these to be the basis for new settlements. many of them said i how you doing just fine. and i ask you a question sure why you're living out here. it's one of the. true reasons 1st zionism. surely you and the 2nd is to keep an eye on this area and also to save money if you know the land here doesn't cost anything but primarily it's about zionism too isn't it dangerous. how much you know anything can happen. but it's all in god's hands.
9:45 pm
and the traditional. is there's a settlement not just on the days i'll go visit so i don't know but it soon will be we're occupying the land just as naturally as a frenchman would for his fields. as you quote but i don't see a palestinian flag ever flying here. is a symbol it's the capital of judea and a symbol for everyone from today and some are you. this is not about a handful of settlers or pilgrims as you were talking about half a 1000000 people. nobody is just going to throw us out of today are. not anymore. due to. but the settlements a not without the critics in. the country's supreme court recently declared the
9:46 pm
expropriation of palestinian land unconstitutional the ruling overturned the rule passed by the government in 27 team and should read. to actively legitimize such land transfers by new settlements continue to be a tips for government less. jails once we have 10000 residents and curious arba we will have a city and then they'll have to build a highway connecting it to jerusalem and then things will look very different in kiryat arba months years old we've got to. keep it's located on the outskirts of him and can take advantage of the high unemployment among cities in the joshi arab population a lot of palestinians work on the construction sites on jewish settlements. that. if everyone were like you they'd have been peace ages ago. shell only cement. has been working here long.
9:47 pm
6 months at least it is. not. the arab sponsor choose to leave why are you helping to build their homes but only in this manner we've been working for the jews for years working elsewhere is not enough to make a living i mean it could be must go to move on you know must be revealed which is certainly shared by sure this is my permit for working here should i say that it's not valid for israel you know they also know only in kiryat arba mccomb cut it cut it off. couldn't the old fart is relax the rules for these people yet but guess he's never thrown a rock and has no criminal record here sure they need help and encouragement but
9:48 pm
this little hot head here might then slit your throat the next day so no we can't let them into our land that goes. oh shit i can. yes well for the it's israel that means this division between peoples. so after that israel doesn't want me to have citizenship so i have to commit to palestinian nationality i have let you go because a lot we need 2 independent states side by side now so this is. the meaning of you know what if you were given israeli citizenship. i. oh sure i mean. hebron is home 220-0000 palestinians and 800 jewish settlers no way is the israeli palestinian conflict more visible than here outside israel. no way to palestinians and jewish
