Michael..just a note..the israeli village of Tzur Hadassh is not a settlement since it is on the "right" side of the Green line. So it would be easier for there to be cooperation between them and the Palestinians..

I personally have a problem with Good News stories..instead of creating positive dynamics they sometimes are perceived as being propoganda or image making to try to cover over the problems that do exist..

Michael..for the time being i found this and

this

We are talking about the area of WADI FUKIN which is an area our field school likes to visit One article talks of "Israeli environmentalists", and this might refer to the Israeli Society for Preservation of Nature..(the field school is part of the group)

To be sure I must check my old emails..from the field school director who notified us of the demonstrations.

While searching for this, it was disheartening to see so many negative things are written about settlers. Of course some of it is true..and some of it is due to the general problem that settlements are in putting forth a just solution..But too much seems to be oversimplification and demonizing...

But this "bad media coverage" is not a serious problem when compared to the real problems facing the Peoples of our area.
