Video Blog: Walls Within Walls
A few days ago, as I was winding up my trip to Israel, I called up Daniel Seidemann of Ir Amim, an NGO focused on Jerusalem issues and especially the question of the "separation barrier." He obligingly took me on a tour of what, under other circumstances, might sound like a benign listing of holy sites: the Mount of Olives, the Hill of Evil Counsel, the ramparts of the Old City of Jerusalem, and the road to Bethlehem. The result was a video blog, shot with my tiny Sanyo Xacti camera and edited with the help of Jonathan Groat at Newsweek Online in New York.
