A Palestinian boy

This is a fantastic mini film on the reality of Jewish settlements occurring in East Jerusalem.

Over the past decades the settlements occurring in Palestine and East Jerusalem have continued. Illegal occupation of Palestinian territory is widely criticised, and yet there appears to be little that will slow it. This film looks at the struggle of one young boy and his family as he is evicted from his home. It further highlights the work of a group of Jewish activists trying to bring attention to the issues faced by their Palestinian neighbours, suggesting some hope for unity between Jews and Arabs. The film is shocking, informative and, at times, hopeful.
