Tonight a project I'm promoting called "Hill 769", about residents in Yehuda and Shomron, was featured on CNN international news tonight ! The coverage was titled - "A Different View of Israeli Settlers".
I must admit that being interviewed by journalists about the feelings many have towards the way journalists portray residents of Yehuda and Shomron was quite challenging. But we succeeded in explaining our side of the story and why we feel the journalists are unfair in their coverage of Yehuda and Shomron residents. 
The other point they wanted to understand from us was our take on violence by Yehuda and Shomron residents. Here too we explained that a small minority have taken to violence because they feel that the democratic system has been abused and no legal means are left to struggle for their rights.
Here are a number of great articles on this issue:
2. Civil Fights: Why Violence Has Replaced Democracy - written in the Jerusalem Post
I would love to hear your thoughts about the CNN coverage. It is quite an accomplishment for such a topic.

Also, please feel free to pass on the the coverage link to anyone you feel might be interested in this issue.
