[audio] The Current - Part 3: Bil'in Canadian Lawsuit [scroll down]

We started this segment with a clip of Mohammad Khatib…[H]e lives in Bil'in. It's a small Palestinian farming village in the West Bank ... just west of Ramallah…And they say they are losing their land, watching as it is taken over by Israeli settlements or cut off from them by the construction of what Israel calls a security fence and what Palestinians say is a wall. What Mohammad Khatib and some of the village's other residents decided to do is sue the two companies developing those apartment buildings. And since they're both Canadian companies based in Montreal, that means filing the lawsuit in a Canadian court. [refers to Green Mount, Green Park International]
