Killed in his own olive grove


At 42 years of age, Bilal Saleh was killed by an Israeli settler in the olive grove he'd inherited from his father. His widow, Ikhlas Hamid Saleh, recalls, "Bilal loved farming ... He worked in the fields every day and planted all these olive trees. And that's where he was killed. It was far from any Israeli settlement." Looking to the future, her hopes are simple, "That we can live in safety like people in other countries ... No longer prevented from praying at Al-Aqsa Mosque ... No longer prevented from traveling in our own country. I hope we can achieve peace and stability soon."
