A Different kind of Fruit: Patience

Patience as illustrated by a modern Palestinian farmer. The residents of the illegal settlements on the surrounding hills are intimidating him to leave his 100 yr old family farm. He responds with non-violent resistance, fighting the case in local and international law courts. The Arabic word for steadfastness and resilience is 'samud'. Patience is endurance in suffering and forbearance with others. (7 minutes)
