Is that really too much to ask? Etaniel Asis just wants a peaceful place where he can grow cherry tomatoes for his wife and keep a goat. But once he has his caravan parked next to a small open field in the middle of the West Bank, other settlers come from his village, a kindergarten and a synagogue spring up and donations from America flow – even though nothing is approved. When an American journalist reports on the settlement, an international crisis arises and Israel’s defense minister has to justify the matter to the USA.
