Dear JS256 Students,
I will be returning your drafts over the weekend but in the meantime I wanted to share a great, short documentary that relates to lecture this week. The documentary was produced by Al Jazeera and tells four different stories of people living in Sheikh Jarrah, a neighbourhood of east Jerusalem. The stories are very powerful and these individual stories help us understand why peace is so difficult in Israel and Palestine.
The series can be found here http://www.aljazeera.com/programmes/witness/2012/04/201243114530739738.html and if you are having trouble with the video you can find the stories through youtube, with the first here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YQszhJ3acs .
I hope you all take the time to watch at least one or two of the stories, and I hope you have a great weekend.
