This week NOW focuses on ground zero for the Jews and Palestinians. Itís called the West Bank. There are places here where they can see each other from their kitchen windows. Both claim this land as theirs. Arabs lost the land to Israel after the Six-Day War. And Israel has been encouraging Jewish settlers to move here for over twenty years. NOW goes to the West Bank to understand why settlements have become the tinderbox of war.
