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.

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.
