Occupation 101

This documentary is a must-see.

It discusses the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, starting with the rise of zionism, all the way up to the current situation in the Gaza strip and the West Bank. And it's definitely an eye-opener when it comes to the amount of money the US dedicates to the support of Israel.

Special thanks to my sis for sending me the link to this.

This movie shows the real truth which cannot be ignored. Therefore, it is the responsibility of all relevant countries/citizens to stop aiding/supporting Israel, with use of sanctions if necessary, until it ends its occupation of the Arab territories. We must defend the Palestinian causes, denounce the brutal Israeli/Zionist crimes and criticise the disastrous Israeli policy of expansion and oppression in Palestine.We don’t have to be diplomats or politicians to appreciate that any agreement must be enforcable and at least include the return to the pre-1967 borders, with Israel withdrawing from ALL Palestinian occupied territories (including the West Bank and East Jerusalem), allowing Palestine to control its own borders and recognising Palestinian rights, including the rights to life, freedom, movement and the return to homelands. Although we know that America will not be a peacemaker in the Israeli/Palestine conflict, we must continue to demand to know when the United States is going to “stand up to Israel”, cease providing Israel with financial and military support, and at least be “even-handed in its approach to Israel and Palestine”.

That is one hell of a powerful documentary. I wonder how many people will see it - I suspect not enough.

A great documentary, thanks for sharing it with us.

What a shame that Israel is doing this and the "defenders of democracy" (aka US, UK etc..) are supporting them.

A greater shame to the Arab world who are just watching their fellow "brothers" being treated in such a humiliating way by Israelis.
