    Israel's settlements in the occupied West Bank are one of the main stumbling blocks in the Palestinian-Israeli peace process.

    Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, is refusing to continue talks until there is a complete freeze in their construction.

    However, some Palestinian workers have no other way to make ends meet othert than to work for Israeli construction companies building the illegal settlements.

    Al Jazeera's Jackie Rowland reports from the West Bank.
