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. [...]

Beyond the Mirage: The Face of the Occupation

Loading...
David Neunuebel grew up in an average American home where the Middle East and Palestinian-Israeli were never part of the world. After his first visit to the area, he knew that something was terribly wrong. What he saw, after many more trips, went counter to every American instinct which he had been taught growing up. This documentary is an attempt to get "beyond the mirage." Too often, the conflict is presented in black and white terms. This, in itself, is a form of injustice. Here is an opportunity to hear from the people who actually live in the region, and it goes beyond what the American media presents. Featured are Jessica Montell, Director of B'Tselem, the Israeli Information Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Terratories; Jeff Halper of the Israeli Committee Against Home [...]

Hijacked

Loading...
On September 6, 1970, members of the militant Palestinian group, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, hijacked four commercial airliners in order to draw attention to their cause and gain the release of their comrades being held in Swiss prisons. Three days later they commandeered a fifth plane, and, without killing any of the hostages, spectacularly blew up three of the planes at Dawson's Field in the Jordanian desert. Through interviews with militants who carried out the attack, journalists, crew members, and passengers, this production examines these events, and how and when Middle East militants began to see civilians as legitimate pawns in their struggles for self-determination.

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.

Edward Said

Loading...
Edward Said discusses his postcolonial theory and how it applies to modern culture, from politics to literature. He exposes the Western image of the East as an artificial construct that is still retained today. He discusses Palestine as a politically expedient construct of Europe; argues the right of Palestine to exist as an independent, self-governing nation; and traces the origins of European attitudes toward the Arab world through the literature of E.M. Forster, T.S. Eliot, Joseph Conrad, and Chinua Achebe.
