Summary
We are not the ones who brought this upon us. We want to live and work as brothers. We need each other!' Thus say the Palestinians and the Israeli colonists in the West bank. 'The conflict is set up by politicians who gain from it. And the wall is no exception to this.' Gas Station passes the checkpoint and drives along the 9m high separation wall towards a genuine Garden of Eden between the Palestinian village Luban and the Israeli settlement Shilo. With the arrival of the colonists, the Palestinian owner of the filling station was requested to abandon his property, or to sell it. Hamad did neither. To boycott him a new Israeli filling station was built at only 1km distance. The road got reconstructed, cutting off access to Hamad's station. But he didn't give up. He built an approach, invested in advertisements, and improved his customer service in an attempt to lure customers off the main road and make them come to his station. His success incited conservative Jews to set fire to his office twice. Nevertheless Hamad has many Israeli customers, and they sit brotherly together under the fig tree in his Garden of Eden. Hamad is proud that he gets along with everybody: 'In business there is no place for politics or religion', he says
