Excellent report about the grim prospects for peace in the Middle East, as the recent war in Gaza and the occupation of the West Bank by Israelis stand in the way of a free Palestinian state. The reporters have done a very thorough job in documenting the new 'apartheid' in the West Bank, contrasting the defiant views of Israeli settlers with the perspectives of Palestinians victimized by the Israeli military.

An eye-opening investigation, and a textbook example of good journalism.
