The Israeli Supreme Court will hear the Cremisan court case today.  This is the final hearing in an 8-year long battle against the building of the separation wall in the area west of Bethlehem known as the Cremisan valley.  If approved, 58 families will lose their land to the separation wall and the Cremisan monastery will be separated on the Israeli side of the wall from its neighboring convent on the Palestinian side.
