My Neighbourhood: Palestinians and Israelis peacebuilders


"When a Palestinian boy loses half of his home to Israeli settlers in East Jerusalem, he joins his community in a campaign of nonviolent protests. Efforts to put a quick end to the demonstrations are foiled when scores of Israelis choose to stand by the residents' side."

Boy:      "They came at ten o'clock... with a lot, a lot of anger faces."

Setrler:  "...and the Bible says that this area and this country belongs to the Jewish people. All this area will be Jewish neighbourhood."

Boy:     " I hate them." (watch the video)

This is the work of Just Vision: "Increasing the power and legitimacy of Palestinians and Israelis working for nonviolent solutions to the conflict."
