A People Without a Land

Settlement expansion across Palestine is out of control-now we need to speak about the One State Solution! Is the patchwork of remaining Palestinian land now so fragmented it could never form a viable future state? This incisive film explores the question of whether Israeli settlers have destroyed all hope of return for the original occupants and asks if the One State Solution is doomed beyond hope of being salvaged.

The U.N. Should Admit Palestine as a Full Member State [electronic resource]: A Debate

In 2011, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas appeared before the U.N. General Assembly to request full membership for the State of Palestine. Should the United Nations admit Palestine as a full member state? The proposition team argues that status quo negotiations have failed, and U.N. recognition will give Palestine needed leverage. The opposition team argues that unilateral action allows Palestine the illusion of gains without concessions, and with an unreformed Hamas still in power and refusing to recognize Israel.

Afghanistan, Palestine, Somalia [electronic resource]: Wars

For eighty-year-old Uri, Israel's 1948 War of Independence has brought nothing but glory. He's considered a legend in his hometown on the volatile Israel/Lebanon border, and young recruits hang on his every word. By contrast, Qahir's prospects for a fulfilling life look dim. Although he lost his legs to a Kabul landmine, he works so that his brothers can attend school, but has given up hope of starting a family of his own. And in Somalia, Madguud has watched warfare ravish his country physically and emotionally - the place where he grew up is now described as "the city of the walking dead." This documentary explores the impact of war on daily life through the insights and experiences of these three men, whose countries have endured some of the longest conflicts in history.

Israel-Palestine: Two Peoples, Two States for One Peace

Loading...
The "Geneva Initiative" was launched by Prof. Alexis Keller from Geneva. In 2002, he succeeded in bringing Israelis and Palestinians back to the negotiating table in order to continue discussions on a peaceful solution of the conflict where they had been left by Bill Clinton in the late1990s. For the following two years, the two delegations met in Geneva, Israel, Palestine and London to discuss the conditions for a possible peace agreement. The Israeli delegation was led by Yossi Beilin, former Israeli Justice Minister in the Rabin government. The Palestinian delegation was led by Yasser Abed Rabbo, former Information Minister of the Palestinian Authority and member of the PLO executive committee. Neither group had a mandate from their governments, they were speaking for themselves. [...]

Rabbis in Palestine [electronic resource]: Clerics Work to Improve Israeli-Palestinian Relations

Arik Ascherman and Jeremy Milgrom are not typical Israeli rabbis. As this documentary shows, every day they leave their homes in Jerusalem to help Palestinians in the West Bank. They believe Jews, as God's chosen people, have an obligation to challenge the injustices of occupation. But few other Israelis agree. In addition to confronting angry settlers, the rabbis must overcome the prejudices of most Palestinians. Can clerics, of all people, really help to resolve a conflict that is seen for the most part as rooted in religion? Through their actions and beliefs, the rabbis are challenging widespread prejudices. As Ascherman states: "We give Palestinians hope that there are other kinds of Israelis they can talk to, come to agree with, and have peace with.

A Democratically Elected Hamas Is Still a Terrorist Organization [electronic resource]: A Debate

In 2006, Hamas won a dramatic victory in Palestinian elections and became the dominant political power in Palestine. Yet this same group has targeted and killed many civilians. Israel's occupation has contributed to a violent political environment. What is the best way to interact with a group that is at once labeled terrorist and, at the same time, is the elected leadership of the Palestinian National Authority?

Hate in the Holy Land [electronic resource]

Aghiat Ahras was just 18 when she strapped on an explosive belt and detonated it in a crowded Israeli supermarket. Her mother understands why Aghiat wanted to die, saying that "Death is the only way out for us." Abigail Levi's 17-year-old daughter was in that supermarket; Levi's grief is exacerbated by the fact that her daughter's killer is venerated as a heroine - and that her daughter had sympathy for the Palestinian cause. This documentary travels to the ghettoes of Palestine to meet with members of the Al Aqsa Martyr's Brigade - a coalition of West Bank militias known for training suicide bombers - speaking with Palestine's disillusioned youth and with Israelis who blame Ariel Sharon for making a difficult situation even worse for everyone involved.

Daughters of Allah

Loading...
Modern Palestinian women face dramatic choices. Trapped between a stalled peace process and an increasingly strong Islamic movement, many of these women find themselves confronted by a host of new challenges. Filmed on the West Bank and in Gaza, the documentary penetrates deeply into a facet of Palestinian life that has hitherto been concealed. It includes interviews with militant but heavily veiled female activists, one of whom speaks out on what she sees as the role of women in a free Palestinian homeland. At Birzeit University we hear from a group of young intellectuals who likewise support the Islamic Front. They too, for ideological and symbolic reasons choose to wear the veil. Put this new Islamic wave is also a source of conflict. To Immrandah, a grandmother, for example, poli [...]

Our Honour and His Glory

Loading...
In some areas of North Africa, the Middle East and Asia, honor is deemed of such importance that a father, a brother or a cousin is entitled by tribal custom to kill a woman, often a young girl, who is suspected of having sullied the family moral standard. Legislation now exists in countries such as Egypt and Jordan prohibiting such "honor killings" but the incidents of this practice do continue, rarely acknowledged openly. This film documents two cases in Palestinian villages. A nineteen-year-old girl attempted to return to her family which had cast her out in disgrace. Her death was announced publicly. One young, pregnant single girl was kept in prison to protect her from her family. After giving birth, she was spirited to the West Bank where she was given a new identity. While the [...]
