251: Brother’s Keeper
Act Two

This Land Is Your Land, This Land Is My Land. Or Maybe Not.

We hear the story of someone trying to help all sorts of people who absolutely do not want his help. Nancy Updike reports on Dror Etkes, who has taken it as his personal mission to document the spread of Israeli settlements in the West Bank: Every shack, mobile home, housing cluster, bypass road and town. Settlement growth is something many people would rather keep quiet. The U.S. has repeatedly called for construction to stop. Dror Etkes is a reluctant activist. He initially had no interest in making this his life's work. Nancy Updike's story is part of the Hearing Voices Project, which gets funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. (21 minutes)
