"I hate them, I hate them for a reason," says Mohammed El Kurd, the young boy who is at the center of Julia Bacha's Peabody-winning short film "My Neighborhood," which bracingly shows the experiences of Palestinian families being displaced from their homes in East Jerusalem by brutish Orthodox Jewish settlers.
