No one is getting better lessons in the doctrines of occupation and apartheid than the children of Lubban al-Sharqiyah, a village of 4,000 people located 15 kilometers south of Nablus. It’s not hard to guess what sort of sentiments are developing there and what future generations will spring from its two elementary schools, one for boys and one for girls, from Lubban and two other villages. The buildings are both located near Highway 60, the West Bank’s busiest roadway, used by both settlers and Palestinians, and where there have been many incidents of stone throwing by Palestinian kids.
