    Millions of dollars of Palestinan money helps Israeli businesses thrive in the West Bank, but now the Palestinan Authority is boycotting goods made by settlers.

    At least 3,000 Palestinian grassroots volunteers are leading the boycott campaign.

    Knocking door-to-door, they provide households with the information they need to help get rid of settlement products and replace them with Palestinian ones instead.

    This non-violent resistance has worked, but as Al Jazeera's Sherine Tadros reports, the campaign also hurts those it's supposed to help.
