The Battle Over Area C

the community of Telem is surrounded by hostile Arab villages, in particular the growing town of Tarkumiyeh. The land surrounding the community is in Area C, an area legally under exclusive Israeli control. The land is public land, none of it owned by any private individual, Arab or Jew. And, by law, in order to build or develop anything on this land, Israeli government permission is required. While the people of Telem are careful law-abiding citizens and only build new homes and public buildings after receiving government authorization, the Arabs in the area are blatantly defying government regulations and developing this public land.

A Visit With Shmuel: Telem

Join me as I visit Telem, a small and isolated community of ninety families located just outside Hebron. The people of Telem, salt of the earth Zionist pioneers, have created a close-knit community where everyone is family.
