The deaf brothers in Hebron

Stories from my trip to Palestine...

There are 2 deaf mute brothers in Hebron. They work in the family pottery. Both are regularly beaten up because they can't hear instructions yelled by the IDF.

One of the brother is married and has 3 children, one of whom has down syndrome. They live in a small house beside his father's house. He owns an old Cortina. Maybe worth $2,000. The IDF stole the car from him at a checkpoint, knowing he was deaf mute and couldn't protest.
