Palestinians in Christian housing fear return of Israeli bulldozers

One morning two months ago William Sahouri woke up to find that, after six years, Israeli bulldozers had returned to the hilltop opposite his apartment building.
His home lies not far from the Holy Land cities of Bethlehem and Jerusalem, which are very close as the crow flies, but which can sometimes take hours for Palestinians to reach due to a myriad of Israeli security hurdles. Sahour, aged 42, lives with 56 Palestinian Christian families in a 10-building Greek Orthodox housing project at Jabal al-Deik, on the outskirts of Beit Sahour, a town east of Bethlehem. The first families moved in 13 years ago and an 11th building is under construction.
