Photo of new Jewish settlements in the West Bank

Dror’s Mission {format} 21:07 Nancy Updike

Dror Etkes of Peace Watch has taken it as his personal mission to document the spread of Israeli settlements in the West Bank: every shack, mobile home, housing cluster, bypass road and town. Settlement growth is something many people would rather keep quiet. The U.S. has repeatedly called for construction to stop. Dror Etkes is a reluctant activist. He initially had no interest in making this his life’s work.
