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.

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.

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.
