    Ezra Nawi, a well-known Israeli peace activist, is expected to be sentenced to several months in jail for trying to stop the demolition of Palestinian homes in the occupied West Bank.

    Now he is using media interest in him and his case to highlight the plight of the Bedouin - a marginalised group in Palestinian society.

    Al Jazeera's Jacky Rowland reports from the south Hebron hills on the plumber and peace activist.
