Fadia al-Wahsh, shown on September 23, 2016, is the leader of a village women's committee that is trying to get electricity for their community in Jubbet Adh Dhib, West Bank.

Just a 20-minute drive from bustling modern Jerusalem, on the side of a mountain whose name means "Paradise," Jubbet adh Dhib is like a step back in time.

Given that the village existed without electricity for about four decades before it came under Israeli administration in 1967, it couldn't have been much of a village. One wonders what made it so attractive after Israel assumed responsibility that people started moving there even without electricity? Or is it just that some Palestinian Arabs saw an opportunity to create a propaganda show and the reporter either fell for it or is willingly abetting it?
