12:00 Jul 23 2011 Al-Walajeh, near Bethlehem

Al-Walajeh (PNN) 25 July -- People gathered in Al-Walajeh village near Bethlehem Saturday night to celebrate the rebuilding of a family's home that was destroyed by the Israeli army seven years ago ... After Awad presented the key to the owner, Attalah Abu Rizeq, people got to look around the newly-built five-room house with a magnificent view of the valley below. Construction on the home began in May and was recently completed by volunteers from the British NGO Amos Trust. The family of seven had been living in a one-bedroom apartment in a refugee camp since their home was demolished ... The new home already has a demolition order on it, said Al-Fararja, but they will come back to rebuild it no matter how many times it is destroyed. Sooner or later either us or Israel will have to give up, said Awad, it won't be us.
