Interviews with Members of the Family...
Hebron

02 Jul 2014

July 1, 2014
West Bank, Palestine.

Interviews with members of the al-Qawasmi family who are suspected of murdering the three missing Israeli teenagers that have been found dead. Israeli forces raided the family house, smashing up possessions and ordered the inhabitants to leave.

Shots of:

  • Al Qawasmi and Abu Aisha’s houses being demolished by the IDF as they were accused of the kidnapping and killing of the Israeli teenagers.

  • Crossing points of the Israeli soldiers in the streets of the West Bank.

Interviews:
Hosni al-Qawasma, 33. The person accused of kidnapping and killing the three Israeli teenagers
Om Amer Al Qawasmi, 30
Abu Eishe family
Samir Shalalda, 60

Hosni al-Qawasma:
"I am Hosni al-Qawasma, and this is my family home. Everything happened suddenly, army forces broke into the house. The house has 4 rooms with women, children and an old man suffering from cancer inside. They asked them to leave the house quickly, they got scared and left. They had an Iftar table because it is Ramadan, they wanted to eat and they told them to leave. They asked the soldiers if they could just eat a few bites but were refused and asked to leave. They went out but stayed in front of the house. After two hours they allowed them to go to the neighbor’s house. Over a 4 hour period they completely destroyed the house, as you can see for yourself, they completely destroyed the house using knives and sharp tools. They destroyed all the belongings inside the 4 rooms and then bombed the house without any warning. So many people were injured in the neighbor’s house, women and children were hurt. We called ambulances but the army forbade them to come.

Interviewer:
After all this destruction, to whom do you indicate your message?

Hosni al-Qawasma:
"To whom should we send our message? For the past sixty years, our houses get destroyed and we re-build them. For sixty years people from America and Russia come and live in our houses, they destroy our homes and we re-build them. To whom should we send our message!"

Om Amer Al Qawasmi:
"What happened is complete destruction, two rooms on that side and another room. So three rooms on the upper floor and two rooms here have been destroyed. The closet was on the floor but we brought it up so that my daughters can put their clothes on. As you can see, complete destruction."

Interviewer:
What are you going to do now?

Abu Eishe family:
"I will re-build and continue Ramadan in my house. The invaders are not going to leave me alone. They will come after me and even if they destroy my house again, I will always be ready to rebuild it. They have been coming into my house for twenty days. They come in and I clean up after them when they leave. Tomorrow will be the same and life goes on."

Interviewer:
what is the message that you are sending to the International community?

Om Amer Al Qawasmi
"My message is only intended for God, I ask him to help me, and I do not want anything from people. All I want is for God to give me the strength and the ability to fight. I do not ask anyone for anything. I only ask God for strength because I have been let down by people before. When my house was destroyed I did not see anybody standing by my side and when my son was killed, I did not have anybody standing by my side. Now they want to help me? My house was destroyed more severely before."

Samir Shalalda: (talking about the crossing points in Hebron)
"What is happening is that there are security blocks and restrictions implemented on people. In the morning we want to pass by and we cannot. They break and destroy things."

Interviewer:
What are you going to do now that the road is blocked?

Samir:
"I do not know, I have to find another way maybe or I do not know."

Church of the Nations
Paris
By Nadia Ferroukhi
11 Feb 2014

A former American GI turned pastor has been in France for more than 10 years, and in that time, managed to cultivate a massive following, with five daughter churches, and more than 50 sister churches created in the last five years around the world. Pastor Lesley Joseph, who had his revelation on the Okinawa military base in Japan, is an unusual and valuable partner for the community, whom he has brought in with what he calls his "spiritual third world," an awakening of love and unity. His churches are diverse, with people coming from all walks of life through his doors to hear his sermons.
The charismatic missionary preaches with simplicity and humor, and focuses on the street impact, touring the city of Paris, appealing to all: the homeless, poor, old, young, gypsies, bourgeois, Africans, Catholics, Christians and Muslims. His success lies with his open-to-all policy, a stark and welcome contrast to other religious institutions.
