For news consumers in the U.S. it was yet another busy week in the Mideast. It was a little bit of everything; an Israeli raid in Gaza left eight dead and 70 injured Palestinians, Prime Minister Ahmed Qurea urged the U.S. once again to revive the road map, Israel vowed to keep building the “security wall’” despite U.N. condemnation, and militants executed two of their own fro collaborating with Israel.
But for some people in the region these headlines can carry a world of difference. As part of our effort to bring you the voices of the people behind this conflict, today we’ll speak with Palestinians who are living in the West Bank and hear their thoughts on suicide bombs, the possibility of peace, and what it means to stick to the land.
