Connections: Child Detention in the West Bank
We're talking about child detention in the West Bank, where Palestinians and Israelis continue to clash. A local group has stressed their concerns about the detention of children , and they're hoping to raise international awareness about the issue. Earlier this month in Rochester, they screened the film Detaining Dreams. Recently we've welcomed guests who bring a different viewpoint on the Israel / Palestinian crisis; this hour offers a counterpoint.
