Abu Juda, a Bethlehem Farmer

Abu Juda

Abu Juda is a 61 year old farmer. His land, whilst inside Bethlehem Governorate, has long been inside an Israeli West Bank settlement, but only recently separated from Bethlehem by Israel's separation "fence". Since the completion of that section of the wall, Abu Juda has to make an 8km detour walk, with his donkey, to reach his land. At a military checkpoint in the wall Abu Juda must show his ID and permit to farm his own land, land that has been in his familiy for generations.
