It seems like a conflict that may never end. Israelis and Palestinians are fighting again. This week we look back at the history of the occupation of Palestine. We’ll hear from several Palestinians about how they’ve personally been affected. And we get the Israeli government’s perspective on the current situation as we begin 2009.
