Jordan Valley Blues (43 mins)

Meet Palestinian farmers living in the Jordan Valley, who are forced to abandon their land due to lack of water and harassment from the Israeli military.  One tests his entrepreneurship in his home village; the other accepts work in an illegal Israeli colony, sacrificing his rights as a worker and so much more.  Then meet an Israeli settler who asserts he is so happy to be able to give 35 Palestinians jobs, for without him, they'd starve.

Israeli permitting restrictions are drastically limiting Palestinian water and sanitation development throughout the West Bank, and obstructing nearly all Palestinian development in the Jordan Valley – 90% of which is classified "Area C" or "under Israeli control".  Israel is demolishing Palestinian wells, pipelines and even rainwater-harvesting cisterns.
