There is plenty of detailed historical and legal info readily available on Sheikh Jarrah and the other East Jerusalem settlements. In this video I wanted to contrast the very different personal stories and experiences on the two sides. I tried to let the settlers “dig their own graves.” I was amazed at their sense of entitlement, and the way it’s enabled by the Israeli government on all levels.
