- Program Description
The West Bank is 2,000 square miles of territory conquered by Israel in 1967. In Old Testament times, this was the home of the Jewish people. But for many centuries it has also been the home of Arabs. Since their victory, the Israelis have built 90 new settlements. The UN claims the soldiers protecting these settlements are illegal. Israelis themselves are bitterly divided.
