The David & Goliath of Our Time

And yes, despite the modern-day David being of a different nationality to the biblical one, the end result will be the same - when all is said and done. Remember that the biblical references so often misquoted by both the aggressors and their misled 'Christian' protagonists actually refer to Spiritual Israel, as do all references after the Redeemer (rejected by the former chosen ones) gave the ultimate sacrifice, with the result being that his true followers comprise the new 'Israel'.

The Palestine Wall is more than twice as high and well over four times as long as the Berlin Wall. When this wall eventually crumbles in like manner as did its predecessor just one generation ago there will be a terrible price to pay not only by the builders but also by their powerful supporters.

The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance… it is the illusion of knowledge. A thought-provoking and powerful documentary film on the current and historical root causes of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Unlike any other film ever produced on the conflict –Occupation 101 presents a comprehensive analysis of the facts and hidden truths surrounding the never ending controversy and dispels many of its long-perceived myths and misconceptions.
The film also details life under Israeli military rule, the role of the United States in the conflict, and the major obstacles that stand in the way of a lasting and viable peace. The roots of the conflict are explained through first-hand on-the-ground experiences from leading Middle East scholars, peace activists, journalists, religious leaders and humanitarian workers whose voices have too often been suppressed in American media outlets.
The film covers a wide range of topics – which include – the first wave of Jewish immigration from Europe in the 1880′s, the 1920 tensions, the 1948 war, the 1967 war, the first Intifada of 1987, the Oslo Peace Process, Settlement expansion, the role of the United States Government, the second Intifada of 2000, the separation barrier and the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza, as well as many heart wrenching testimonials from victims of this tragedy.
