Journalist Robert Fisk visits a Palestinian whose family home near Jerusalem is threatened by expanding Israeli settlements. Some of these settlers are interviewed in part 2. The settlements are intended for “Jews only” and are a violation of United Nations Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338. Many scholars and activists argue that Israel’s continued violation of these resolutions is one of the primary causes of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. This is part of a documentary Fisk made in the early 1990’s about the causes of increasing anti-Western sentiment in the Middle East.
