Palestinians build Israeli homes

Economic circumstances leave no choice but to work at settlement sites in the West Bank.

    Israel's illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank are one of the main stumbling blocks in the Palestinian-Israeli negotiations.

    Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, is refusing to continue talks until there is a complete freeze in their construction.

    But some Palestinian workers have no other way to make ends meet but to work for Israeli construction companies in building settlements.   

    Al Jazeera's Jackie Rowland reports from the West Bank on how desperate Palestinians have to work against their values in order to make a living.
