frustrated and i'm so frustrated. need to tell bill thank his dream come true his own café in. his cafe is a favorite among artists in berlin locals and foreigners alike need al has been living in the german capital for 8 years he became a german citizen 2 years ago needle was born in palestine and grew up in the gaza strip. i was. when i was a boy in the gaza strip i used to dream of having my own cafe on the other side i
4:32 pm
wanted to open one by the beach in gaza and then but that's not possible with the situation as it is there and there's this man i didn't know my life would take me to berlin but now here's bobo which means nightingale he got a. new general work tard to make a new home for himself in the rain but the situation in gaza has him increasingly concerned. as think now all i can think about is seeing my family again. the next war is coming because. if something happens to them before i can see them that would destroy me. i can tell that my family isn't doing well that they need me and my strength i want to spend time with my family and be there for that in that manner for me that south of and on and at the end i'm glad. i'm. out of worry for his family nido made a dramatic decision. from one day to the next he sold his cafe.
4:33 pm
all he wants to do now is see his family in gaza. other what a shame but you'll come back one day right my god he's got one sunday. let me give you a hug i've learned. over the past 10 years new dowse parents intensively lived through 3 wars in the gaza strip now the next conflict seems to lie ahead. in 2007 new dow lost a leg as a result of the conflict between israel and the palestinians. he was working as a camera man when he's car was struck presumably by an israeli rocket.
4:34 pm
the car veered off a hill and his right leg was shattered. their own 4 listen to the accident happened to tell in the morning that they sent me to the head also medical center in jerusalem i needed surgery right away and that was impossible in gaza one for. the. the time nidal worked for an international news agency. they organized his treatment at the israeli hospital. but this new ferguson will never forget how the head doctor explained my options. they said my leg was destroyed so badly it couldn't be fixed now that i'm kind of at the spines and we could leave it the way it was but i wouldn't be able to walk anymore if i'd have to spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair. or i could have my leg amputated and then use
4:35 pm
a prosthetic and it was entirely my decision. and on that i was struck speechless in this convent so i was lying in bed and i heard everything so i told him the 2nd option. of to inspire. i don't feel like i have limitations i enjoy my life more than most people i mean look at it it's pretty cool. to me so i wanted to be able to stand on my own 2 feet and lead my life which they wouldn't have been possible in gaza so i came to germany. that was in 2010 a fellowship allowed no doubt to start a new life in germany have decided to invest here i put a lot of time and energy into understanding the mentality of people here the focus here. in. berlin is now my 2nd home.
4:36 pm
now new delhi is saying goodbye to his 2nd tower he's not sure if and when he'll be back. but that's the best way to fall. for this when i fall i missed me i don't get hurt. that's my job and i'm not sure whether to pack my winter clothes. or just my summer ones. he doesn't know how long he'll be away 3 weeks 3 months 3 years anything's possible. he sold his cafe but he's only someplace his apartment for a few weeks it's done so that i can't take it all.
4:37 pm
at 5 the next morning he takes a taxi to the airport. my heart. i'm getting more and more anxious. a war that's worth it. in theory only a few hours of travel time separate nidal from his family in gaza. the shortest route from germany to gaza is to fly into tel aviv and then drive to the air is crossing after the palestinian uprisings began new regulations were imposed in 2000 now palestinians need a special permit to cross the checkpoint and then nearly impossible to get that's why nidal is flying to amman jordan from there he plans to cross into the west bank
4:38 pm
then continue through israel until he reaches gaza. work of the green out of commission of the airport and a model of the look on why b m b o. there's no problem in jordan he enters with his german passport then he goes to buy a few gifts for his family. that was then he heads to the border with israel. that was. he'll 1st need to pass through the jordanian and then the israeli border control. is in the mouth of a half an hour will be at the border to palestine i hope we get into day for this. and this but after her let's go so to speak.
4:39 pm
needle has a german passport. will israel recognize it unless impasse or since he's palestinian by birth will they require a special permit to travel through israel plied for of him and just in case. on the jordanian side there's no problem they let him through with his german passport then he takes a short bus tried through the no man's land to get to the israeli side. the lights of the city of jericho in the west bank flicker in the distance but 1st he has to pass through israel's border control after a wait of 3 hours he's told that israel won't recognize his german passport and the israeli authorities say they never received his application for a permit to pass through the country.
4:40 pm
need out has to go back to jordan. the city i don't understand this isn't. just on. the. back in amman friends take him in. i was on my. honest and. from there he tries to obtain permission to travel to gaza things are looking good but no one can guarantee that he will be allowed back out. on the back because of. the the mother argument they're all saying you're returning
4:41 pm
a gun or if you're returning. so will i keep hearing that word in hebrew have been now when they are back to a part of our face all of them and that's the fear that that means he might find himself stuck in gaza indefinitely i love that islam most likely. knows but indeed i have 2 choices. i can sacrifice my freedom and honestly in my entire life. and take that risk and so i can see my family that's good for my own so there isn't a man of letters in. the blood and i might end up trapped there. with i'm far or i can choose my freedom from enough i had to turn back that's all of you know not see my family. those are my 2 choices.
4:42 pm
a short time later need to have received word that israel has cleared him for entry he's told to go to the border. i was born i presented my german passport yesterday they stamped it and wrote in my palestinian 1000. dollars a month for the moment that means i could never enter this region as a german and that i wasn't got. some fun freedom it's absurd and in europe when you want to visit your family the only decision is do you want to fly or travel by rail and. if so i have this
4:43 pm
interest card isn't much i worked really hard for hour by the couple months glad i pay my taxes and this but this passport is worth nothing here about either though if any other german can enter and exit the region with no problem probably in los. that it upsets me. he's back at the border crossing. as he was told israel has given him permission to transit lot they want him to board a bus directly to gaza. most nicely want to get on this bus but i won't. so i won't enter.
4:44 pm
he's afraid that if you boards the boss he won't be allowed to leave gaza. he'd be stuck far away from his life in berlin. no one here can or will give him a guarantee that he'll be committed to leave gaza again. conversation with israel's border control gets a bit hated it times around and one. of the you know. one of. the one of the board offices is also from germany he's only in israel to complete his military service no no no. you have to understand. you have to understand me to. the spam you won't let me out no one's looking you up yes you are to turn off the camera the.
4:45 pm
first thing that frustrated i'm so frustrated times around london one. of the. women. and. one of the board offices is also from germany he's only in israel to complete his military service no no no. you have to understand. you have to understand me to stop the spam you won't let me out no one's looking you up yes you are turned off the camera the. first thing that frustrated i'm so frustrated. newtown returns to amman jordan. in germany he'd already suspected that
4:46 pm
visiting his family in gaza wouldn't be easy. but he wasn't prepared for how upset he. persisted with us and israel so afraid of. what is so dangerous about me that i'm not allowed to go to my own territory. i've been in germany for years i'm just coming back to visit my family and i should be able to do that freely i can't understand. from israel's point of view they have good reason for their stance. cooper bitch
4:47 pm
was the former head of the civilian branch of code get an i.d.f. unit that's responsible for issuing travel permits for palestinians through israel . let's not forget the gaza strip is controlled by a terror organization hamas ok it changes all the reality for us other israelis and for palestinians also i understand that the people are caught in between. other affordably out there and they are the ones who are paying the price of terror all on one hand israeli policy against dato entity if he is inside his travel in gaza do you know what he's doing there can we know what who is doing what to what he's doing there. ok that's what it takes to understand. that somebody from terror organizations in gaza like hamas islamic jihad isis are
4:48 pm
already in gaza somebody met him somebody is trying to convince him to do something somebody is trying to use it. to check those things it takes a little bit. there's a lot of mistrust on both sides and that doesn't look set to change anytime soon. things that might be commonplace under other circumstances like visiting your family become an insurmountable hurdle. needles parents don't know yet that he's visited one take place. there are only 2 ways into gaza one is through the rafa border crossing in egypt that's usually closed the other is through the israeli crossing areas. journalists diplomats aid organization staff and palestinians with a special permit are allowed to enter. once it becomes clear that needle won't be
4:49 pm
able to visit our camera team continues without him that way nidal family will at least get the gifts he purchased even if he can't be there himself. around 2000000 people live in gaza and life is difficult here in 2007 the militant islamist hamas group took control of gaza israel and egypt established an economic blockade corruption and mismanagement on the palestinian side have exacerbated the situation. about half the palestinian people rely on united nations food deliveries. and. needles family live in a quiet area to the south of gaza city. his parents and
4:50 pm
where a man hope will go have 6 sons 5 daughters and 18 grandchildren they've been looking forward to visit. but instead of a homecoming they have to make do with a telephone call. from the earlier. one i am with a new head of the family and. we could hardly wait needle's been gone for years and we were so happy when he said he visited. he checked in with me every day and told me he was going to visit maybe today maybe tomorrow. no i've given up hope but he said this was his last try for now. it didn't work i feel terrible i think it's so painful. what's going to be. left in germany
4:51 pm
that we didn't want that was his life because of. this. there is no choice in this boy this is what. we call the future. of the food issue. is if. he can see what is. being shown. the war 7 of ideas the gifts are a welcome surprise. you tell us older brother jamal has 2 children the youngest is a year and a half old. has only of this. and him in pictures. dalia is needles younger sister she's the only one who isn't married yet and lives with her parents. out of the dolls 10 brothers and sisters 7 have university degrees
4:52 pm
but none of them have an income. this sense of futility about the future is one reason why so many people want to leave gaza. nido loves our food in gaza he especially loves it when i cook. because he doesn't like it when the plates are empty and there are numbers about it but i was not among them to dance mother is the only member of the family who's been given a permit to visit him in berlin offered to sponsor imminently but she told him an old tree company operation. dalia is just finishing school and for him to go out so just 3 in gaza. the situation here so difficult to can move freely. no person in our study no one's going to study you know indication. and every few
4:53 pm
years there is another war. was a good thing that he wasn't here. a way of the bad things i was the work. of to see him. achieving his dreams and with the thing you saw he won. and yeah everything he won just the. women. that's how jamal little's oldest brother sees things to what might have also didn't come to this is all he says. you. may have been north of but isn't it. enough in the spirit seeing here no. symbolism it's a gift the money all over think it's a gift. it's not being as. or we're used. to seeing
4:54 pm
him we miss him since he said he hears it all really said sir do you know what it was i was feeling falls off being me. what if and. many dream of leaving and seen the world but only a handful do. to most of the residents of gaza the reality is that they are stuck here the only way out is a permit from israel or egypt. those permits can be applied for here at the palestinian civil committee after an initial review they pass on selected applications to israel. ordinary applications of processed on the 1st floor. urgent cases for people who need medical treatment go up stairs whenever tensions rise between israel and hamas fewer permits to travel
4:55 pm
outside gaza are approved. is male carter is deputy head of the palestinian agency. he has access to new doubts file. we received a permit for him to return but he was afraid he wouldn't be able to leave dancer's so he stayed in jordan. in principle it's possible to get an exit permit but it's very difficult entering isn't easy either amend the horde come on was once you're in gaza or you can't go down to until the israeli security forces clear you but one never knows how long that will take but it could be a month 3 months or maybe you'll never get an exit permit. in my. israel says the lengthy process is necessary to ensure security.
4:56 pm
for israel it's all a question of security for the bull bull family it's a deeply personal matter. they just want to be able to see nidal. he's now returned to burlington. he didn't have the i tried everything but i couldn't make sure that i'd be permitted to leave gaza again my family also told me not to come this. they didn't want me to be trapped there they wanted me to be able to return to berlin like. they want us to. be done up but he. was flipped off i won't give up hope that i'm going to see my family soon.
