It's about time! While NBCNEWS.com gets in the usual disclaimer that Jewish communities beyond the Green Line are widely considered illegal by international law, its recent slide show entitled "Faces of Israeli Settlements" gets past usual stereotypes of religious, rock-throwing provocateurs to show the diversity here, in the City of Ariel and the unauthorized outpost, Abigail. Dave Copeland of NBC News has done a nice job putting a human face on those of us who live in the West Bank aka Judea & Samaria--people who live here, love here, and seek peace with our neighbors.
I'm featured in slide #11.
