Christina (No. "Theresa" is not her real sir name!) is the misson head for the Spanish branch of MSF (Medecins Sans Frontieres, Doctors Without Borders) in East Jerusalem.
Christina cares about the “situation,” she tells Tuvia Tenenbom, during an interview he conducted with her as "Tobi the German". She is Italian, yet cares passionately about Palestine. What’s the emotional gravity that makes her come here?
She wants to fix the problems here, she answers.
Tobi the German (played by Tuvia Tenenbom): What are the problems?
CHRISTINA THERESA: Lack of rights.
Tobi the German: Whose side are you on?
CHRISTINA THERESA: There are people here who suffer more.
Tobi the German: What kind of suffering?
CHRISTINA THERESA: There are people here who are not free to decide where they want to live.
Tobi the German: Who are those people?
CHRISTINA THERESA: The Palestinians, of course.
Tobi the German: Are the Jews free to live where they want?
CHRISTINA THERESA: Yes. If they want to live in the West Bank they can.
Tobi the German: Can Jews live, let’s say, in Ramallah?
CHRISTINA THERESA: Mmm. There are a few. There are journalists from Haaretz who
live in Ramallah.
She is referring to Amira Hass, the feminine side of Gideon Levy.
Tobi the German: Are other Jews living in Ramallah?
CHRISTINA THERESA: As far as I know, that’s all. Just Amira.”
The office of Doctors Without Borders in Jerusalem is in the Khirbet al-Makhul, an East Jerusalem neighboorhood where Jews are not allowed to reside.
