Quotes of the day:

“There’s a school in [the nearby settlement of] Ma’aleh Adumim, a place to get an education. All we’re asking is that we have a kindergarten and school as well. If you had a 6-year-old child who had to walk 6 kilometers both ways to get to school, wouldn’t you be concerned and want to change that?"
--Abdallah, 39, another resident of Al-Muntar village.
