HEBRON, FOR THE SAKE OF HEAVEN (Israel / Palestine, 2006)

'Gas the Arabs' is graffitied on the wall in the only Jewish street in Hebron. In 1929 the five-thousand year old city, lying on the West Bank of the Jordan, came under British administration. That meant the end of Jewish Hebron, until Israel recovered the city from the Arabs in 1967. Today about 400 Jews live in the midst of 150,000 Palestinians. In this city, holy to both Jews and Arabs, the two parties are kept apart by cordons and 2000 Israeli soldiers. Even the grave of Abraham, the patriarch honored by both Jews and Muslims, is divided in two.
