The following film was shot

over a twenty-five year period

in Israeli occupied

Palestinian Territories

00:00:29,583 --> 00:00:32,333

 Crew: Peace. 

 

2

00:00:38,417 --> 00:00:39,417

Hi.

 

3

00:00:39,458 --> 00:00:40,458

Hello.

 

4

00:00:52,333 --> 00:00:53,458

Where you come from?

 

5

00:00:53,500 --> 00:00:55,041

United States

 

6

00:00:55,083 --> 00:00:56,333

I thought that.

 

GFX 03: 00:00:56:16 - 00:01:01:18

“We have forgotten

that we have not come

to an empty land to inherit it,

 

 

 

 

GFX 04: 00:01:01:22 - 00:01:10:12

we have come

to conquer a country

from the people inhabiting it” 

(Add below quote at 00:01:05:08 - 00:01:10:12)

Moshe Sharett 2nd Prime Minister of Israel

 

7

00:01:52,291 --> 00:01:57,166

Why is it that Palestine has always been

a source of trouble to the world?

 

8

00:01:57,208 --> 00:02:01,417

IIt is only 200 miles long

and nowhere more than 50 miles wide.

 

9

00:02:01,458 --> 00:02:03,500

Ever since the days of the Roman empire

 

10

00:02:03,500 --> 00:02:08,375

this little country on the east of the Mediterranean

has been the scene of wars and revolution.

 

11

00:02:08,417 --> 00:02:13,208

Yet today the Jews are spending millions of pounds building a National Home here.

 

12

00:02:13,250 --> 00:02:19,166

And on the other side the Arabs are fighting

for what they consider their natural rights in the country.

 

13

00:02:19,208 --> 00:02:22,083

What is it that causes so much trouble in Palestine?

 

14

00:02:22,083 --> 00:02:24,500

 

[00:02:22.03I got very interested in Israel,

 

15

00:02:24,542 --> 00:02:26,583

went through a search for identity

 

16

00:02:26,583 --> 00:02:29,417

and found it in connection with the Jewish people.

 

17

00:02:30,583 --> 00:02:33,375

Came to Israel as a student in 1971.

 

GFX 05: 00:02:25:11 - 00:02:43:18

Stephen was the first

Jewish American to receive

Conscientious Objector status

during the Vietnam War.

 

18

00:02:33,417 --> 00:02:35,375

Met Melga then, my wife.

 

19

00:02:45,333 --> 00:02:48,583

I was raised in a regular assimilated

 

20

00:02:48,583 --> 00:02:52,083

  American-Jewish family in New York.

 

21

00:02:52,083 --> 00:02:58,125

Umm, knowing just a little about

some of the holidays and not much more.

 

22

00:02:58,166 --> 00:03:02,208

And,uh,as a teenager I became religious,

 

23

00:03:02,208 --> 00:03:05,250

and I also became a Zionist.

 

 

 

 

 

 

GFX 06: 00:03:04:10 - 00:03:12:06

                   ZIONISM

Zionist political ideology holds that

Jews are a people or nation like any other,

and should gather together

in a single homeland.   

Source: Zionism-israel.com

 

24

00:03:13,333 --> 00:03:19,041

Adam: Zionism is a creation of the end of the 19th century.

 

25

00:03:19,166 --> 00:03:24,250

It is first of all a creation of society where

 

26

00:03:24,250 --> 00:03:28,458

discrimination against national ethnic minorities

 

27

00:03:28,458 --> 00:03:34,583

and specifically against Jews,

was an acceptable and respectable thing to do.

 

28

00:03:35,125 --> 00:03:37,583

Plus the fact that at that time it was considered

 

29

00:03:37,625 --> 00:03:42,250

that it is quite legitimate and okay for Europeans to go to

 

30

00:03:42,250 --> 00:03:45,500

to countries outside of Europe and settle there

 

31

00:03:45,500 --> 00:03:50,417

whether or not the people who live there

want them to do it or not.

 

GFX 07: 00:03:51:01 - 00:03:57:12

Efrata Settlement, Occupied West Bank

 

 

32

00:03:53,041 --> 00:03:54,583

Ardie: Our decision to move here

 

33

00:03:55,000 --> 00:03:58,083

was based on religious values and religious beliefs.

 

34

00:03:58,083 --> 00:04:04,500

As Jews we feel a religious imperative to live here.

 

35

00:04:04,542 --> 00:04:06,417

We sort of, ahh,

 

36

00:04:06,417 --> 00:04:10,208

combined our religious belief and our idealism

 

37

00:04:10,208 --> 00:04:13,041

to come back to our homeland.

 

38

00:04:13,083 --> 00:04:16,500

Stephen: Here alone in history do you have a case

 

39

00:04:16,667 --> 00:04:22,333

where a people has retained

its national identity in dispersion for 2000 years,

 

40

00:04:22,333 --> 00:04:25,250

and now comes back to the land from which it's been exiled.

 

41

00:04:25,583 --> 00:04:30,083

Now what happens, a people's dispersed.

 

42

00:04:30,125 --> 00:04:32,583

It is not in any particular land anymore.

 

 

43

00:04:32,583 --> 00:04:36,542

It's all over the place, but keeps its identity as a people.

 

44

00:04:36,583 --> 00:04:40,083

What happens to the land where they started at?

 

45

00:04:40,083 --> 00:04:42,417

Well someone else comes in.

People don't look at that land and say,

 

46

00:04:42,458 --> 00:04:45,125

"Hey, the Jews once lived here so let's not go in there."

 

47

00:04:45,125 --> 00:04:49,417

 

 No, people come and live there,

as happens whenever one people moves from it's land,

 

48

00:04:49,417 --> 00:04:52,250

leaves it, another people's living there.

 

49

00:04:52,250 --> 00:04:57,583

 

  We have here a situation of two peoples,

 

50

00:04:57,583 --> 00:05:04,208

each of them deeply conscious in their minds,

 

51

00:05:04,333 --> 00:05:10,500

and feeling in their bones,

that this country is their country.

 

 

GFX 08: 00:05:11:15 – 00:05:18:14

Prof. Yeshayahu Leibowitz

           (1903-1994)

 

 

 

 

52

00:05:22,125 --> 00:05:27,125

Tomer: I was born in a Kibbutz in the north of Israel

 called Kibbutz Dan.

 

53

00:05:27,125 --> 00:05:30,250

And in Kibbutz Dan there is a big museum

 

54

00:05:30,291 --> 00:05:36,250

for, uh, nature and the history of the Galilee.

 

55

00:05:36,333 --> 00:05:38,375

The museum is a very impressive building,

 

56

00:05:38,417 --> 00:05:43,583

It's by far the most beautiful building in this community.

 

57

00:05:43,583 --> 00:05:49,333

Some years ago, a friend of mine told me that he heard a rumor

 

58

00:05:49,333 --> 00:05:56,125

that this museum is built from the stones

of a demolished Palestinian village.

 

59

00:05:56,125 --> 00:06:01,166

I found a very deep irony in this because it is

 

60

00:06:01,208 --> 00:06:04,208

a museum for nature and history of the upper Galilee and,

 

61

00:06:04,208 --> 00:06:08,166

if you go inside this museum, you wouldn't know

 

 

62

00:06:08,208 --> 00:06:13,250

that there were ever any Palestinian or Arab villages in the Galilee.

 

63

00:06:13,583 --> 00:06:19,083

And so I went on a search, and I found out that it is true.

 

64

00:06:19,083 --> 00:06:22,250

The village was called Hunin.

 

GFX 09: 00:06:21:15 – 00:06:24:20

Hunin 1935

 

GFX 10:  00:06:24:21 –

Hunin 2014

 

65

00:06:22,291 --> 00:06:29,542

And I tried to study how a village is turned into a history museum,

 

66

00:06:29,542 --> 00:06:34,250

which tells nothing of the history of the village

from which it is built of.

 

67

00:06:35,583 --> 00:06:41,041

And I think this is a metaphor for Israeli architecture.

 

68

00:06:41,041 --> 00:06:44,583

And architecture again is a metaphor also, but not only.

 

69

00:06:44,583 --> 00:06:52,250

No one knows what this place we are living in is built of,

 

70

00:06:52,291 --> 00:06:56,667

and, it has no past.

Presenting the world to the world.

 

73

00:08:38,250 --> 00:08:41,667

Jewish settlement in Palestine is the cause of Arab discontent.

 

74

00:08:41,709 --> 00:08:45,583

This modern city of Tel Aviv already houses 100,000 Jews

 

75

00:08:45,625 --> 00:08:49,417

who have accepted Britain's invitation

to make the Holy Land their national home,

 

76

00:08:49,458 --> 00:08:53,208

apparently with success.

 

77

00:08:54,208 --> 00:08:58,625

Arab towns nearby, built in ancient Eastern Style,

are in striking contrast.

 

78

00:08:58,667 --> 00:09:03,333

 Naturally, the Arabs, old and young,

resent the influx of the go-ahead Jews.

 

79

00:09:03,375 --> 00:09:06,083

They fear that the white man,

with his totally different outlook,

 

80

00:09:06,125 --> 00:09:07,750

 may oust them from their own country,

 

81

00:09:07,750 --> 00:09:10,417

 back to the nomadic life of their forbearers,

 

82

00:09:10,417 --> 00:09:13,417

 driven to seeking pasture on the desert fringe.

 

83

00:09:13,583 --> 00:09:17,250

For so many centuries,

the Muslim Arabs lived respectfully

 

84

00:09:17,250 --> 00:09:21,208

toward the Jews and the Christians

because they were people of the book.

 

85

00:09:22,041 --> 00:09:26,250

And before the rise of the Jewish national movement

jjin this country

 

86

00:09:26,250 --> 00:09:31,417

there was a good deal of mutual respect and regard

between the Muslims and the Jews.

 

87

00:09:32,083 --> 00:09:37,208

I don't think anti-Semitism is something that is a natural product,

 

88

00:09:37,250 --> 00:09:42,041

or a natural thing, in the Arab world.

But indeed the conflict has fanned this.

Hunin 1935

 

 

 

89

00:09:42,083 --> 00:09:45,166

Tomer: I will try to make a free translation

of a document that I've found

 

90

00:09:45,208 --> 00:09:49,208

during my search about the history museum

and the village called Hunin.

 

91

00:09:49,333 --> 00:09:54,291

This is a document from 1948,

from the Haganah archive in Israel.

 

GFX 23: 00:09:54:12 – 00:10:02:19

Haganah 

Zionist/Jewish armed group in

Palestine from 1920 to 1948.

 

92

00:10:01,500 --> 00:10:04,542

It says Urgent. Top Secret.

 

93

00:10:05,000 --> 00:10:07,208

Military Order Number 2.

 

94

00:10:08,083 --> 00:10:11,375

The Enemy: The enemy - the village Hunin

 

95

00:10:11,417 --> 00:10:15,583

was partly evacuated during an exchange of fire.

 

96

00:10:16,417 --> 00:10:21,458

It maybe that in the meanwhile

the villager's have returned to their homes.

 

97

00:10:21,542 --> 00:10:26,291

Our aim: to enter the village of Hunin,

 

 

98

00:10:26,333 --> 00:10:30,166

to kill a number of men,

to take some prisoners,

 

99

00:10:30,208 --> 00:10:35,208

to blow up a couple of the village houses,

 

100

00:10:35,333 --> 00:10:39,000

and to burn what can be burned.

 

101

00:10:39,083 --> 00:10:42,333

You know the aim here was terror.

 

102

00:10:42,375 --> 00:10:46,500

Terror also in the meaning of

making somebody afraid.

 

103

00:10:46,583 --> 00:10:50,166

So you kill some people.

You just need to kill some of them,

 

104

00:10:50,208 --> 00:10:52,208

and then the people from Hunin will flee,

 

105

00:10:52,250 --> 00:10:55,583

and probably also the people

 from around the other villages will flee

 

106

00:10:55,583 --> 00:10:58,083

because they know that

 they killed some people in Hunin,

 

107

00:10:58,083 --> 00:11:01,125

And then you don't even need to go and kill

some people in the neighboring villages.

 

108

00:11:01,166 --> 00:11:04,333

It doesn't even matter,

because they will be afraid.

 

109

00:11:27,583 --> 00:11:33,375

Before the 1948 war,

there was some 850,000 Palestinians

 

110

00:11:33,458 --> 00:11:35,583

living in the area that became the state of Israel.

 

111

00:11:36,000 --> 00:11:42,333

Of those 850,000

some 718,000 became refugees, were expelled,

 

112

00:11:42,417 --> 00:11:47,250

basically were expelled by the Israeli forces

during the war.

 

113

00:11:47,333 --> 00:11:50,041

Today in the near east a suffering people,

1948 [Note: Lower frame right]

 

114

00:11:50,083 --> 00:11:54,083

the Palestine Arab refugees,

are struggling for survival.

 

115

00:11:54,125 --> 00:12:00,083

Three quarters of a million displaced human beings

are dependent upon charity for their very existence.

 

116

00:12:00,083 --> 00:12:07,083

In these camps of misery live the scores of thousands

whose native land was, for centuries, Palestine.

 

117

00:12:07,125 --> 00:12:14,417

The expulsion of Palestinians in '48,

which was a very terrible national trauma for them,

 

118

00:12:14,458 --> 00:12:20,417

and I think a very big injustice

which Israel did in order to create itself,

 

119

00:12:20,458 --> 00:12:24,375

was more or less pushed aside,

and I think, "Oh there is a refugee problem,

 

120

00:12:24,417 --> 00:12:27,125

but let the Arab world take care of these refugees."

 

121

00:12:27,125 --> 00:12:29,542

 

[00:12:27.04The greatest battle is against infant mortality.

 

122

00:12:29,583 --> 00:12:35,417

Only one out of five lives longer than six months.

 

123

00:12:36,208 --> 00:12:43,375

Between 600,000 and 800,000

Palestinians became refugees.

 

124

00:12:43,417 --> 00:12:48,166

Now in every war there are refugees,

but what is specific about this war was that

 

125

00:12:53,250 --> 00:12:55,458

after the war was over.

 

 

 

 

 

GFX 25:  00:12:55:19 – 00:13:10:08

United Nations

General Assembly Resolution 194

11 December 1948

 

Resolves that the refugees

wishing to return to their homes

and live at peace with their neighbors

should be permitted to do so

at the earliest practicable date.

 

126

00:13:12,083 --> 00:13:17,667

Most of these people left their homes

two years ago in clothes they stood up in

 

127

00:13:17,792 --> 00:13:22,166

since they all expected to return home

when order was again established.

 

128

00:13:23,458 --> 00:13:28,208

There are likely to be ugly political consequences.

 

129

00:13:28,250 --> 00:13:34,166

The idea was to establish a Jewish state

where Jews could live in safety and self-determination.

 

130

00:13:34,208 --> 00:13:36,083

But it's turned out to be the un-safest place.

 

131

00:13:36,083 --> 00:13:39,583

Because you cannot come into an area

where other people are living,

 

132

00:13:39,583 --> 00:13:42,417

establish a state, confiscate their lands,

 

133

00:13:42,417 --> 00:13:45,291

and expect to live in safety.

 

134

00:13:45,333 --> 00:13:47,250

And that's what happened.

 

135

00:13:47,250 --> 00:13:50,583

They came in, conquered and confiscated.

00:14:06,000 --> 00:14:10,000

Tom: U.N. Resolution 194 clearly states

that people have the right

 

137

00:14:10,041 --> 00:14:12,917

to return to homes from which they were displaced

during times of war.

 

138

00:14:12,959 --> 00:14:16,458

True, but in spite of those agreements

it's just not always done.

 

139

00:14:16,458 --> 00:14:20,083

It's just not always done.

And it's not going to happen in this case either.

 

140

00:14:20,083 --> 00:14:24,333

So I suggest we just move on.

GFX 28: 00:15:12:23 – 00:15:18:03

130,000 Palestinian’s remained inside

the territory that was renamed “Israel.”

 

GFX 29: 00:15:18:15 – 00:15:24:23

They became citizens of Israel

“The attitude we adopt toward the

00:15:04,417 --> 00:15:40,208

 

[00:15:35.05After 1948 until 1966

there was a long period of military rule

 

148

00:15:40,250 --> 00:15:47,417

inside the state of Israel

on its Palestinian citizens.

 

149

00:15:47,792 --> 00:15:54,375

The same as now in the West Bank,

this military rule was not applied to a geographical space,

 

150

00:15:54,417 --> 00:15:58,583

but to ethnicity, nationality,

I don't know.. Well, to Arabs.

[00:15:59.00In order to leave your village

you had to have a permit

Land confiscated.

Workers being forced out of agriculture,

forced to become a commuting laborer population.

Jeff: Between 1948 and 1966,the Palestinians

in Israel were under a military government.

 

157

00:16:24,542 --> 00:16:29,458

Like an occup..

They were under occupation for almost 20 years.

The six day Middle East War echoes along a second front:

 

160

00:17:15,458 --> 00:17:19,125

the diplomatic struggle at the United Nations Security Council.

 

161

00:17:19,166 --> 00:17:23,417

While Russia and other iron curtain countries

label Israel's victory as aggression,

 

162

00:17:23,458 --> 00:17:26,250

insisting she pull back to original boundaries.

 

163

00:17:26,291 --> 00:17:33,083

Israeli Premier Eschkol, equally adamant,

insists Israel alone will determine her future.

 

164

00:17:33,083 --> 00:17:37,458

 

[00:17:34.10It's not an occupation, this is liberated territory.

 

165

00:17:37,458 --> 00:17:40,208

The Arabs went to war against us and they lost.

 

166

00:17:40,208 --> 00:17:43,291

This is our territory returned, returned by God,

 

167

00:17:43,333 --> 00:17:48,500

and we, the Jewish people,

have a right to our one God-given country.

 

168

00:17:48,500 --> 00:17:55,583

 

[00:17:50.00I am Israeli born, I was born in Haifa.

 

169

00:17:55,583 --> 00:18:01,500

My parents came from Germany, very early, 1933.

 

170

00:18:01,542 --> 00:18:04,333

Even before Hitler came to power.

 

171

00:18:04,375 --> 00:18:11,625

F or a few years I worked for the Prime Ministers office,

I was the Prime Minister's secretary.

 

172

00:18:12,083 --> 00:18:16,417

The Prime Minster then was  David Ben Gurion.

 

173

00:18:17,208 --> 00:18:20,333

Hanna:  He was one of the first people who said after '67,

 

174

00:18:20,417 --> 00:18:25,500

"We should leave the occupied territories immediately,

because  occupying is corrupting."

 

175

00:18:25,542 --> 00:18:32,083

Ben Guiron said that. But people were so taken

  with this wonderful winning we had.

 

176

00:18:32,125 --> 00:18:36,250

We managed to win this war.

 

177

00:18:36,250 --> 00:18:40,417

And at the time I also believed that the war had a sense.

 

178

00:18:40,458 --> 00:18:45,333

It took me a while to realize that it was all for nothing.

 

179

00:18:45,333 --> 00:18:50,458

And that it was one of the darkest moments of our lives.

 

180

00:18:54,083 --> 00:19:00,417

I remember my family went to see East Jerusalem

 and to Hebron, Bethlehem, and Nablus

 

181

00:19:00,417 --> 00:19:05,250

like the new owners coming to inspect their new property.

 

GFX 34: 00:19:35:12 – 00:19:46:07

In 1967, the lives of

a million more Palestinians,

including 250,000 1948 refugees,

fell under Israeli’s control.

 

182

00:19:46,291 --> 00:19:55,583

One of these peoples

occupies the entire country by force.

 

183

00:19:56,041 --> 00:20:04,417

Deprives the other people

 of their political, national independence,

 

184

00:20:04,458 --> 00:20:11,417

and tries to maintain this situation by violence.

 

185

00:20:11,458 --> 00:20:15,417

Because this situation can be maintained only by violence.

 

186

00:20:15,458 --> 00:20:23,333

There's no peaceful way of maintaining the domination

of one people by another people without violence.

 

187

00:20:25,583 --> 00:20:28,375

And now the Israelis have to decide,

 

188

00:20:28,417 --> 00:20:33,083

Do you want to share this country with those people or not?

 

189

00:20:33,083 --> 00:20:36,417

This is the question. Now that ..Why I'm asking that,

 

190

00:20:36,458 --> 00:20:39,542

that it's an Israeli question, not a Palestinian question,

 

191

00:20:39,583 --> 00:20:45,417

because they are now controlling and leading all the country,

 

192

00:20:45,458 --> 00:20:52,125

and the keys and the decision in their hands,

not in the hands of the Palestinians.

 

193

00:20:52,166 --> 00:20:56,583

Certain basic human rights are denied

by the very fact of military occupation.

 

194

00:20:56,583 --> 00:21:00,500

I mean the Government of course is not voted,

 

195

00:21:00,542 --> 00:21:06,083

there is no freedom of speech, freedom of movement,

 freedom of organization.

 

196

00:21:07,458 --> 00:21:13,250

Beyond that, of course the main problem

is still to date the killing

 

197

00:21:13,291 --> 00:21:17,000

in large numbers, of Palestinians.

and, not yet ready to recognize a Palestinian state

4 a.m. Palestinian refugees

coming from Gaza to work in Israel

201

00:22:13,083 --> 00:22:15,458

The old concept was Moshe Dyan?s concept.

 

202

00:22:15,500 --> 00:22:20,250

It was the idea

that we would tie the Palestinians to us economically.

 

203

00:22:20,291 --> 00:22:25,959

By bringing them into,

by giving them jobs in Israel, the lowest scale jobs.

 

GFX 38: 00:22:26:02 – 00:22:30:22

For 26 years the refugees

were allowed to work in Israel,

 

GFX 39: 00:22:30:23 – 00:22:34:20

even in the towns

their families were expelled from,

though it was illegal for them

to sleep in those towns.

 

204

00:22:39,542 --> 00:22:43,542

Letting them come into Israel to work,

 to be your hewers of wood and your drawers of water,

 

205

00:22:43,583 --> 00:22:46,333

your manual labor power.

 

206

00:22:46,417 --> 00:22:49,500

 Commuting back and forth,

getting up 2 in the morning 3 in the morning

 

207

00:22:49,542 --> 00:22:52,583

to get on line to get through the checkpoints, to get into Israel

 

 

 

208

00:22:53,000 --> 00:22:55,500

for the privilege of working there, and then going back.

 

209

00:22:55,542 --> 00:22:59,375

So on the one hand you’re flooding their market,

preventing the development of an economy.

 

210

00:22:59,417 --> 00:23:03,625

On the other hand you’re using their labor force,

exploiting their labor force,

 

211

00:23:04,041 --> 00:23:06,250

 and no economy grows there.

 

212

and I in my pocket have a blue I.D.

 

215

00:23:18,583 --> 00:23:22,083

And the difference between the colors is striking,

 

216

00:23:22,125 --> 00:23:25,208

and so is the difference in the treatment.

 

217

00:23:26,166 --> 00:23:29,041

It’s easy to get by with a blue I.D.

 

218

00:23:29,083 --> 00:23:31,583

It’s hell to have an orange I.D.

Stephen: For years, I had been looking for a way

 

244

00:30:44,083 --> 00:30:48,333

to express my feelings about the situation.

 

245

00:30:48,375 --> 00:30:52,208

I wrote a few articles for the paper.

 

246

00:30:52,250 --> 00:30:54,417

They didn’t quite do the trick.

 

247

00:30:54,458 --> 00:30:59,250

And finally the army made it very easy.

 

248

00:30:59,250 --> 00:31:03,458

The way for me to express my feelings

about the situation was to go to jail.

 

249

00:31:03,500 --> 00:31:09,291

 And I felt tremendous relief.

A tremendous sense of lightening.

 

250

00:31:09,333 --> 00:31:13,000

There are hundreds of them, hundreds,

 

251

00:31:13,041 --> 00:31:18,125

who refuse to serve in the occupied territories.

 

252

00:31:18,166 --> 00:31:25,000

They are not pacifists. They serve wholeheartedly in the army,

 

253

00:31:25,041 --> 00:31:29,208

but they won’t take part in the atrocities.

Nurse: He’s also 14 years old from Jabalya Camp.

 

255

00:31:33,417 --> 00:31:37,333

 

[00:31:34.00Israeli soldiers’ role is to use minimal force,

 

256

00:31:37,333 --> 00:31:42,333

to try to have purity of arms, of what we call moral principles,

 

257

00:31:42,333 --> 00:31:47,500

which will not be degraded

or eaten away by years of Intifadah,

 

258

00:31:47,542 --> 00:31:50,375

by years of dealing with this type of situation.

 

259

00:31:50,417 --> 00:31:55,083

And use our force in a very selective manner,

 

260

00:31:55,125 --> 00:31:58,500

and to try to have as few casualties as possible.

261

00:31:59,083 --> 00:32:06,250

You use a variety of measures

that are not supposed to be lethal.

 

262

00:32:06,250 --> 00:32:12,041

You have a five and half year experience

that proves beyond any doubt

 

263

00:32:12,083 --> 00:32:14,458

that these measures are extremely lethal.

 

GFX 74: 00:32:14:00 – 00:32:45:17

[Note: place just above subtitles]

 

264

00:32:14,500 --> 00:32:18,458

That they have killed hundreds of Palestinians,

hundreds of children.

 

265

00:32:19,250 --> 00:32:24,583

The question is, if a certain measure

that is supposed to be non-lethal is lethal,

 

266

00:32:24,625 --> 00:32:28,041

why don’t you do away with it?  Why don’t you change it?

 

267

00:32:31,583 --> 00:32:35,125

In the long-run, respecting human rights now

 

268

00:32:35,166 --> 00:32:38,458

means even a better present, let alone future for us here,

 

269

00:32:38,500 --> 00:32:45,125

because every killing of a child means that

another Palestinian would, sooner or later, take up arms.

All the boys in Palestine are your sons now.

 

273

00:33:24,291 --> 00:33:27,333

Is what we see the Jews doing to the Palestinian’s,

 

274

00:33:27,333 --> 00:33:29,208

is that Jewish?

 

275

00:33:30,291 --> 00:33:34,417

There are two interpretations of Judaism in Israel

 

276

00:33:34,792 --> 00:33:41,041

There are those who would define being Jewish as this:

 

277

00:33:41,083 --> 00:33:44,083

to be rooted in one another.

 

278

00:33:44,083 --> 00:33:46,166

Meaning in all human beings, not just Jews, alright?

 

279

00:33:46,208 --> 00:33:52,333

To be rooted in other people, and not in a piece of Earth.

 

280

00:33:52,375 --> 00:33:56,083

The clearest exponent of this attitude is Martin Buber.

 

281

00:33:56,083 --> 00:34:03,250

Buber summed up the whole message of the prophets

 from the bible as “Holy insecurity.”

 

282

00:34:03,250 --> 00:34:08,041

Don’t give yourself the illusion of, of security that your rooted in the earth,

 

283

00:34:08,083 --> 00:34:12,625

and that you have roots, and therefore you’re gonna be secure.

 

284

00:34:13,041 --> 00:34:16,583

But be delivered over to one another so that you’re security depends

 

285

00:34:16,625 --> 00:34:21,083

on your maintaining good relationships with your fellow human beings.

 

286

00:34:21,083 --> 00:34:22,458

That’s one Judaism.

 

287

00:34:22,500 --> 00:34:30,333

It’s not the attitude we see being exemplified

by Israel’s actions for the last 100 years,

 

288

00:34:30,333 --> 00:34:33,583

or 60 years of its’ existence, and then before that.

 

289

00:34:34,458 --> 00:34:38,208

From a distance this Jewish colony in Palestine

looks as romantic as a Dutch picture.

 

290

00:34:38,208 --> 00:34:45,208

Close to, it’s different. The guards are Jewish colonists

armed with shotguns. They watch all day.

 

291

00:34:45,208 --> 00:34:49,583

There was a basement room

 in a very neglected part of the town,

 

292

00:34:49,625 --> 00:34:53,083

and there was there a solider in uniform.

 

293

00:34:53,083 --> 00:34:55,458

The solider was talking about terrible things,

 

294

00:34:55,500 --> 00:35:01,500

about executions without trial, about destruction of houses,

 

295

00:35:01,542 --> 00:35:05,417

about just stopping people in the street and beating them up.

 

296

00:35:05,417 --> 00:35:10,166

What you could call collective punishment. And all kind of terrible things.

 

297

00:35:10,208 --> 00:35:15,458

And, and, there were people protesting and saying “That’s not true!

 

 

 

298

00:35:15,500 --> 00:35:17,208

Our army’s not doing such things.”

 

299

00:35:17,250 --> 00:35:20,250

And then the soldier said, “Yes the army’s doing such things,

 

300

00:35:20,250 --> 00:35:23,917

I have done it myself, and now I cannot sleep at night

 because I have done it.”

 

301

00:35:23,959 --> 00:35:30,333

I would suggest that the disproportionate violence

 

302

00:35:30,375 --> 00:35:35,875

is much, much heavier from the Palestinian side

towards the Jews.

Look what the Israelis are doing! 

You’re murderers.

 

304

00:35:52,417 --> 00:35:55,291

At least try to draw parity between the two sides,

 

305

00:35:55,333 --> 00:36:01,291

if not just trying to make the argument that

the Israeli Army is really an army of murderers,

 

306

00:36:01,333 --> 00:36:03,417

which is something I completely reject.

 

307

00:36:03,458 --> 00:36:07,542

And I, you know I think it’s a good propaganda line

for people who, who believe it.

 

308

00:36:07,583 --> 00:36:12,083

Israeli’s find it hard to believe

that their army does certain things

 

309

00:36:12,083 --> 00:36:15,125

and would rather either ignore the facts,

 

310

00:36:15,166 --> 00:36:19,375

or attack them vehemently

without actually checking them thoroughly.

 

311

00:36:19,417 --> 00:36:23,083

You’re talking now about over 3,000 Palestinian civilians

 

312

00:36:23,083 --> 00:36:26,583

More than half of those are unarmed civilians

 

314

00:36:29,250 --> 00:36:35,250

who did not take part in fighting against Israelis,

or attacking Israelis.

 

 

 

315

00:36:35,291 --> 00:36:40,375

We unfortunately have wound up killing Palestinians

who are innocent victims.

 

316

00:36:40,417 --> 00:36:43,333

They, the Palestinian terrorists, murder us.

 

317

00:36:43,583 --> 00:36:49,208

They’re less human,

therefore we don’t really have to deal with them as human beings.

 

318

00:36:50,208 --> 00:36:53,458

We don’t have to relate to them as equals.

 

319

00:36:53,458 --> 00:37:00,000

When their children die, well that’s not, you know,

 

320

00:37:00,041 --> 00:37:03,583

that’s not the same as when our children die.

 

321

00:37:04,000 --> 00:37:05,625

That’s racism.

 

322

00:37:06,250 --> 00:37:08,583

When two children are killed, it’s an accident.

 

323

00:37:08,583 --> 00:37:12,583

When 200 kids are killed, it’s a policy,

 

324

00:37:12,583 --> 00:37:16,083

and you’re asking me how I feel as a mother

 

325

00:37:16,125 --> 00:37:19,041

of someone who’s exactly the age of these kids?

 

326

00:37:19,083 --> 00:37:20,583

I feel pretty horrible.

 

327

00:37:20,583 --> 00:37:25,083

These black widows are traitors to their country,

their God, and their people.

 

328

00:37:25,083 --> 00:37:30,250

And these traitors, every one of them are traitors, weaken the country.

 

329

00:37:30,291 --> 00:37:33,208

They’re sick demented Jews,

 

330

00:37:33,250 --> 00:37:36,583

I don’t even think they’re Jews.  I think they’re Arabs.

 

331

00:37:37,083 --> 00:37:42,333

I’m an organizational psychologist and,

when I was still doing reserve duty,

 

332

00:37:42,333 --> 00:37:49,583

I worked with soldiers who have been in the position

 of firing their weapons into crowds of school children.

 

333

00:37:49,583 --> 00:37:53,417

Not only is what were doing to the Palestinians unspeakable,

 

334

00:37:53,417 --> 00:37:59,500

but what we’re doing to ourselves as a people

is just .. depressing.

 

335

00:37:59,542 --> 00:38:03,417

I was even a soldier in the occupation army

 

 

 

336

00:38:03,417 --> 00:38:07,041

and now I try to fix that.

 

337

00:38:07,083 --> 00:38:10,291

It’s my way to fix the wrongs of Israel.

 

338

00:38:10,333 --> 00:38:14,166

We’re talking about one side that has the guns and the power,

 

339

00:38:14,208 --> 00:38:17,500

and one side that is under the gun and the power.

 

340

00:38:17,542 --> 00:38:20,208

We're not talking about equals.

 

341

00:38:20,208 --> 00:38:24,041

And, you know, people don’t like when we say

that they’re fighting for their freedom,

 

342

00:38:24,083 --> 00:38:25,208

but that’s what they’re doing.

 

343

00:38:25,291 --> 00:38:29,458

Stop referring to it as resistance,

and stop referring to it as fighting the occupation,

 

344

00:38:29,500 --> 00:38:32,291

and say “Okay, we want peace.”

 

345

00:38:32,333 --> 00:38:36,166

If tens of thousands, twenty thousand, hundreds of thousand Palestinians

 

346

00:38:36,208 --> 00:38:41,583

came out into the streets and said “Peace now. Now.”

00:41:39,834 --> 00:41:43,041

Israel is living by the sword,

 

366

00:41:43,083 --> 00:41:47,291

and I’m not a Christian, I’m not a religious believer at all,

 

367

00:41:47,333 --> 00:41:51,208

but I think that Jesus was speaking very good sense

 

368

00:41:51,208 --> 00:41:54,959

when he said that one who lives by the sword

will die by the sword.

 

369

00:41:55,291 --> 00:41:58,333

Now the efforts of all who have labored before us

00:42:13,500 --> 00:42:19,041

and there will be more security, and more hope, for all.

We have come to try and put an end to the hostilities

 

375

00:42:29,291 --> 00:42:33,583

so that our children, our children’s children,

will no longer experience the painful cost of war,

 violence and terror.

Another interpretation of Judaism is the kind of

interpretation that you run into among the settlers of the West Bank,

00:43:05,333 --> 00:43:13,291

which develops a mystique of the connection

of the Jewish people to the Holy Ground, to the Earth.

We are not occupiers, we are pre-occupiers.

 

380

00:43:19,542 --> 00:43:26,083

We’ve been here before and we have been pre-occupied

with this land for the last 2,000 years.

 

381

00:43:26,083 --> 00:43:29,125

We are here because today we are celebrating 40 years

00:43:29,166 --> 00:43:32,583

of the return of the Jewish people home, to Judea, Samaria, Gaza,

00:43:32,583 --> 00:43:35,709

to our biblical homeland,

the land that God gave to the Jewish people.

 

384

00:43:35,792 --> 00:43:39,417

This is our home, this is our land.

Our land is very important to us,

 

385

00:43:39,417 --> 00:43:42,333

not simply because it’s physical,  because it also has I think,

 

386

00:43:42,333 --> 00:43:45,500

for many of the religiously observant Jews among us,

 

387

uh, a spiritual element in there too.

TurmasAyya had a population

00:44:04,834 --> 00:44:06,458

Under international humanitarian law

 

389

00:44:06,458 --> 00:44:10,333

the status of Israeli settlements

in the occupied territory is unequivocal.

 

390

00:44:10,333 --> 00:44:14,291

Settlements are a violation

of the prohibition in the fourth Geneva convention

 

391

00:44:14,333 --> 00:44:20,583

of transferring population from the occupiers population

to the occupied territory.

 

392

00:44:20,583 --> 00:44:25,250

So settlements are a violation of humanitarian law.

outside the land of Israel.

Jews don’t belong outside of Israel.

 

395

00:44:33,333 --> 00:44:36,583

It’s against Jewish law for Jews to be outside of Israel.

 

396

00:44:36,583 --> 00:44:40,458

They should only live in the land of Israel, and nowhere else.

Batya:  The fact that Israel, in its defense,

 

398

00:44:45,458 --> 00:44:49,417

was able to gain control over this land

 

399

00:44:49,417 --> 00:44:53,250

does not mean that we owe anybody anything.

 

400

00:44:53,250 --> 00:44:58,417

This is ours. In every sense of the word.

 

401

00:45:04,208 --> 00:45:09,417

After 67’, we took land that in the bible maybe is ours,

 

402

00:45:09,458 --> 00:45:13,500

but it definitely wasn’t empty.  There are people living here.

 

403

00:45:13,542 --> 00:45:17,583

Look at all these villages.  This is their land.

 

404

00:45:25,083 --> 00:45:31,083

There are sometimes claims of expropriation.

 

GFX 98: 00:45:29:09 – 00:45:35:03

EXPROPRIATION

Taking property from someone

through theft or fraud

 

 

405

00:45:34,583 --> 00:45:38,500

We know that Arabs have won cases such as this

 

406

00:45:38,500 --> 00:45:41,083

 

[00::38.13]when they can prove that the land is privately theirs.

 

407

00:45:41,250 --> 00:45:45,083

These people have to prove that the land is theirs.

 

408

00:45:45,125 --> 00:45:49,333

Now this sounds to us Europeans like nothing very serious.

 

409

00:45:49,333 --> 00:45:53,166

You just go and bring the papers.  But this is not so here.

 

410

00:45:53,208 --> 00:45:56,291

Because this country changed hands many, many, times.

 

411

00:45:56,333 --> 00:46:00,417

And every time we changed hands, the system changed.

 

412

00:46:00,458 --> 00:46:04,250

And the land registration books are done by the British,

 

413

00:46:04,291 --> 00:46:08,166

by the Ottomans, and now they have to prove that it’s theirs.

 

414

00:46:08,458 --> 00:46:12,041

After ‘79, they found a legal theory by which

 

415

00:46:12,083 --> 00:46:14,583

they just come to the Palestinian farmer and say,

 

 

416

00:46:15,000 --> 00:46:17,250

“We have discovered that this land is state land,

 

417

00:46:17,250 --> 00:46:20,250

so we discover that it has all the time been our property,

 

418

00:46:20,291 --> 00:46:22,458

and you have been just an illegal squatter.

 

419

00:46:22,458 --> 00:46:27,000

So now we take back our property and we chase you out.”

 

420

00:46:27,166 --> 00:46:30,375

The land that we’re sitting on, working on, living on,

 

421

00:46:30,417 --> 00:46:34,542

is state land and, uh,

 

422

00:46:34,583 --> 00:46:39,208

It doesn’t belong to any private Arab landowner or villager.

 

423

00:46:39,458 --> 00:46:42,542

 You just declare a certain land as being state land,

 

424

00:46:42,583 --> 00:46:47,333

and then, if it is state land,

then it is open for building of a Jewish settlement

 

425

00:46:47,333 --> 00:46:51,166

from which the original owners would be excluded.

 

426

00:46:51,208 --> 00:46:55,458

Not only that they cannot live there, they cannot even go to visit there,

 

 

427

00:46:55,458 --> 00:46:59,375

because a fence would be erected

in which they would not be allowed passage

 

428

00:46:59,375 --> 00:47:04,417

for reasons of security of the settlers who are going to live there.

 

429

00:47:07,792 --> 00:47:11,291

Israel says, “This now is land that belongs to the state of Israel

 

430

00:47:11,333 --> 00:47:14,208

because we don’t recognize your deeds.”

 

431

00:47:14,250 --> 00:47:17,375

Or if Israel says. “Okay, you know what? You have your deeds.

 

432

00:47:17,417 --> 00:47:22,083

We don’t care, but this is land we’re going to take anyway,”

 

433

00:47:22,125 --> 00:47:26,083

For public purposes, to build a settlement, to build a road.

 

434

00:47:26,083 --> 00:47:30,417

Or, because Israel says, “Okay, you can think you own the land,

 

435

00:47:30,458 --> 00:47:35,250

but were not gonna let you build on it. Because its open green space.”

Yeah it was a forest.  It was very green, you know?

 

438

00:48:02,458 --> 00:48:06,083

In all the different mechanisms that Israel has,

 

439

00:48:06,083 --> 00:48:09,417

in effect it’s alienating the Palestinians from their land.

 

440

00:48:09,458 --> 00:48:14,333

Israel’s actually taken about 40% of the West Bank,

 

441

00:48:14,375 --> 00:48:20,583

and it’s frozen for Palestinian building, 70% of the West Bank.

 

442

00:48:21,166 --> 00:48:24,250

Adam:  When the state of Israel was created in 48’,

 

443

00:48:24,291 --> 00:48:28,125

there was still, the racial segregation in the United states

 

444

00:48:28,166 --> 00:48:31,583

was still a quite respectable institution.

 

445

00:48:31,583 --> 00:48:37,041

So you could say that the state of Israel was left behind.

 

446

00:48:37,083 --> 00:48:41,250

The standards of Israel, are essentially the standards

 

447

00:48:41,250 --> 00:48:46,375

which were prevailing in the Western World

until the end of the 50’s,

 

448

00:48:46,417 --> 00:48:51,125

before Martin Luther King in the United States.

00:48:59,583 --> 00:49:02,333

the man with the white hair, that looks like a prophet

 

451

00:49:02,375 --> 00:49:06,417

with Martin Luther King, is Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel.

 

452

00:49:06,417 --> 00:49:09,458

He’s in many ways our role model of a rabbi and a scholar,

 

453

00:49:09,458 --> 00:49:11,417

who was also a social activist.

 

454

00:49:13,208 --> 00:49:18,583

One of his most famous sayings was,

“In a democracy, some are guilty,

00:49:18,583 --> 00:49:20,834

but all are responsible.”

What if a Palestinian wants to

go for a walk over there?

 

459

00:49:28,917 --> 00:49:30,125

Where, in the settlement?

00:49:30,166 --> 00:49:30,750

Yeah.

 

461

00:49:30,792 --> 00:49:32,250

Are you crazy?

 

462

00:49:32,291 --> 00:49:34,166

Are there any people that are non-Jews

00:49:34,208 --> 00:49:35,625

living in any of these settlements?

 

464

00:49:36,041 --> 00:49:39,291

Never. Never!

 

465

00:49:39,333 --> 00:49:42,250

I cannot imagine that you could ask this question

 

466

00:49:42,458 --> 00:49:47,333

Here in this town,

the Palestinian third is being discriminated against

 

467

00:49:47,333 --> 00:49:53,250

in a very serious way

because they are not represented in City Hall.

 

468

00:49:53,250 --> 00:49:57,166

The only person in City Hall who’s an Arab

 

469

00:49:57,208 --> 00:50:00,125

is the one serving the tea.

He’s serving the tea and coffee,

00:50:02,333 --> 00:50:04,458

and probably the one cleaning the toilets.

municipal service in this place.

The minimum service that the municipality

have to give to the people

00:50:32,583 --> 00:50:37,083

is to take the garbage.  To collect the garbage.

I don’t talk about the roads.  You can see the roads.

I don’t talk about, eh, lights. I don’t talk about school services,

00:50:47,166 --> 00:50:52,125

and water services.  Even water the municipality didn’t give them.

 

481

00:50:52,166 --> 00:50:54,083

00:50:54,083 --> 00:50:56,458

No peace, no peace at all, no peace.

00:50:56,500 --> 00:50:58,542

There is no peace at all.

 

 

484

00:50:58,667 --> 00:51:02,083

This is all done on purpose.

 

485

00:51:02,083 --> 00:51:07,583

Nothing of the occupation happens by chance. No!

 

486

00:51:07,583 --> 00:51:10,333

It happens on purpose.

 

487

00:51:10,333 --> 00:51:15,834

It happens in order to make the Palestinians’ life a hell.

 

488

00:51:15,917 --> 00:51:18,208

We have dehumanized the enemy.

 

489

00:51:18,250 --> 00:51:23,083

As we have been dehumanized, only a short time ago.

 

490

00:51:23,083 --> 00:51:29,166

We call them .. a two-legged animal.

 

491

00:51:29,208 --> 00:51:33,542

We are reenacting, without being able to control it,

 

492

00:51:33,583 --> 00:51:35,417

we are reenacting what happened to us,

 

493

00:51:35,417 --> 00:51:38,208

as if we’ve never learned anything.

Tom:  There are Jewish only roads.

 

 

 

495

00:51:40,417 --> 00:51:42,250

There are Jewish only communities.

 

496

00:51:42,291 --> 00:51:46,583

If somebody in, let’s say Hebron, wants to come up here

 

497

00:51:46,625 --> 00:51:49,291

and buy one of these beautiful houses

00:51:49,458 --> 00:51:52,166

Could absolutely do so.  Absolutely.

00:51:52,208 --> 00:51:57,333

There’s no law on the books preventing a non-Jew

from buying a home here.

Well, uhh, no.  Haha.

 

501

00:52:02,208 --> 00:52:06,208

Settlements are defined as closed military zones.

 

502

00:52:06,208 --> 00:52:08,458

And now it’s a funny kind of a closed military zone

 

503

00:52:08,458 --> 00:52:12,250

because you’d never know it. 

You would walk into a settlement freely,

 

504

00:52:12,250 --> 00:52:14,250

without knowing that you’re in a closed military zone,

00:52:14,291 --> 00:52:16,375

as would I, a citizen of Israel.

 

506

00:52:16,417 --> 00:52:19,291

It’s a closed military zone that applies to a Palestinian.

 

507

00:52:19,333 --> 00:52:23,417

So not only can a Palestinian not buy

or rent a house in a settlement,

 

508

00:52:23,458 --> 00:52:27,709

he can’t physically enter a settlement without a special permit.

 

509

00:52:31,875 --> 00:52:34,208

There are certain areas defined as danger zones,

 

510

00:52:34,250 --> 00:52:36,583

No-Go zones for Palestinians.

 

511

00:52:36,583 --> 00:52:38,458

The orders given to soldiers;

 

512

00:52:38,458 --> 00:52:42,083

Any Palestinian entering those areas can be shot at.

 

513

00:52:42,083 --> 00:52:45,208

In some cases the order is, any Palestinian has to be shot at,

 

514

00:52:45,250 --> 00:52:47,417

if they enter those danger zones.

 

515

00:52:47,458 --> 00:52:51,625

The areas around settlements and the areas around military bases.

 

516

00:52:52,041 --> 00:52:55,041

And we have many cases of Palestinians injured,

 

 

517

00:52:55,083 --> 00:52:59,125

and in some cases killed,

simply for approaching those danger zones.

 

518

00:52:59,875 --> 00:53:02,041

You know there are Palestinian houses

 

519

00:53:02,083 --> 00:53:04,458

on the top of this tunnel.

 

520

00:53:04,500 --> 00:53:08,125

 And they are not allowed to drive their cars,

even to walk,

 

521

00:53:08,208 --> 00:53:10,917

in the tunnel under their houses.

 

522

00:53:10,917 --> 00:53:12,417

It's only for Israelis.

 

523

00:53:12,500 --> 00:53:14,208

You’re not allowed to build settlements.

 

524

00:53:14,208 --> 00:53:18,458

You’re not allowed to build highways

that link those settlements into your country.

 

525

00:53:18,458 --> 00:53:22,083

You’re not allowed to use the resources of an occupied power.

 

526

00:53:22,125 --> 00:53:26,083

Israel takes a third of its water from the occupied territories,

 

527

00:53:26,083 --> 00:53:31,250

which is illegal looting of the resources of an occupied territory.

 

528

00:53:31,917 --> 00:53:40,625

This segregation comes, you know,

most manifest in the summertime.

 

529

00:53:41,041 --> 00:53:45,333

 When the Jewish settlers have all this water,

 

530

00:53:45,583 --> 00:53:50,041

and the Palestinians, you turn on, you open the faucet,

 

531

00:53:50,083 --> 00:53:53,583

no water.  No water.

 

532

00:53:53,625 --> 00:53:55,625

One group going thirsty,

 

533

00:53:55,667 --> 00:53:59,875

while another group, a few yards away,

is living it up with swimming pools.

 

534

00:53:59,917 --> 00:54:03,208

It’s incredible.

Village of Tawani

 

535

00:54:16,625 --> 00:54:18,583

Mary:  When we talk about segregation,

 

536

00:54:18,625 --> 00:54:21,417

we’re talking about electricity, we’re talking about the road,

 

537

00:54:21,417 --> 00:54:23,625

we’re also talking about water.

 

538

00:54:23,667 --> 00:54:26,500

There’s one well here for 170 people.

 

539

00:54:26,542 --> 00:54:31,417

The village has requested repeatedly

to have water hooked up to the settlement.

 

540

00:54:31,417 --> 00:54:33,083

But that’s been denied.

 

541

00:54:33,083 --> 00:54:35,417

So the settlement that’s less than a mile from here

 

542

00:54:35,458 --> 00:54:37,375

gets all the water that they want,

 

543

00:54:37,417 --> 00:54:41,083

where the people here are limited to well water

 

544

00:54:41,125 --> 00:54:44,417

that’s actually very low.

 

545

00:54:51,875 --> 00:54:54,208

00:54:56,667 --> 00:54:59,208

Cheryl: If you want you can come to my house and take a shower.

 

548

00:55:00,125 --> 00:55:02,458

Long, right, that’s the operative word.

 

 

549

00:55:02,458 --> 00:55:05,917

Long hot shower.  Yeah.

Te’ena

Israeli Settlement

 

550

00:55:09,375 --> 00:55:12,709

In terms of the access to resources, to land and water,

 

551

00:55:12,750 --> 00:55:17,375

a person’s ethnic origin clearly determines

how much water comes out of your faucet,

 

552

00:55:17,417 --> 00:55:21,250

and what access you have to land, where you’re allowed to build,

 

553

00:55:21,291 --> 00:55:24,291

and how you go about getting a building permit.

 

554

00:55:24,333 --> 00:55:28,000

Across the spectrum, in the occupied territories,

 

555

00:55:28,041 --> 00:55:33,166

nationality is determining access to rights and benefits.

 

556

00:55:35,000 --> 00:55:41,667

The occupation isn’t something extra

that happened in 67’ because of the war.

 

557

00:55:41,709 --> 00:55:44,834

It’s really an extension of where Israel was going.

 

558

00:55:44,875 --> 00:55:48,709

Israel has always claimed.  Zionism, for a hundred years

 

559

00:55:48,750 --> 00:55:50,458

has claimed this entire country.

We Own A Land

Village of Tawani

00:56:08,583 --> 00:56:10,667

Mary:  This village cannot have electricity.

 

565

00:56:10,709 --> 00:56:14,083

You’ll see there are electric wires that an NGO put in,

 

566

00:56:14,083 --> 00:56:19,083

but the Israeli military will not allow them to hook up to the electric grid.

 

567

00:56:19,083 --> 00:56:23,959

If you can imagine that kind of racism.

 

568

00:56:24,000 --> 00:56:26,166

I believe if people in the U.S. were to be treated like this

 

569

00:56:26,208 --> 00:56:28,208

we would blow up the planet.

 

570

00:56:28,250 --> 00:56:33,166

You know I’ve seen the most heinous crimes

committed against Palestinian’s.

 

571

00:56:33,208 --> 00:56:39,417

And my Israeli friends

would stand with me in saying the same thing.

 

572

00:56:47,667 --> 00:56:52,208

The fact that there are Americans

who are accepting, tolerating, in Israel,

 

573

00:56:52,208 --> 00:56:55,458

what they would not tolerate in the United States itself.

 

574

00:56:55,458 --> 00:56:59,500

And American Jews who accept that Israel behaves

 

575

00:56:59,542 --> 00:57:04,208

in a way which they would very much object to

 people behaving in the United States itself,

 

576

00:57:04,208 --> 00:57:06,083

is very bad for Israel.

 

577

00:57:06,125 --> 00:57:10,583

If anything has defined the American Jewish community,

 

578

00:57:11,000 --> 00:57:16,291

it’s been a commitment to human rights, civil rights, social justice.

 

 

579

00:57:16,333 --> 00:57:18,542

You can’t have that and then at the same time say,

 

580

00:57:18,583 --> 00:57:22,917

"But not Israel, Israel’s an exception."

 

581

00:57:22,959 --> 00:57:26,083

And that in fact is the core of anti-Semitism,

 

582

00:57:26,083 --> 00:57:29,625

is the idea that the rules apply to everybody but not to the Jews.

 

583

00:57:30,041 --> 00:57:33,375

That used to be an anti-Semitic claim. 

Now the Jews are claiming that.

 

584

00:57:34,001 --> 00:57:39,542

The Israeli settlers are not under military rules.

 

585

00:57:39,583 --> 00:57:44,417

What is under military rules is only the Palestinians

 

586

00:57:44,458 --> 00:57:46,083

in the occupied territories.

 

587

00:57:46,083 --> 00:57:48,291

From a human rights perspective what is most problematic

 

588

00:57:48,333 --> 00:57:54,166

is that two people can be living side by side,

and be governed by two legal systems,

 

589

00:57:54,208 --> 00:57:58,041

where one is the legal system

of a liberal democracy, like the state of Israel,

 

590

00:57:58,083 --> 00:58:01,333

and the other is the legal system of a military occupation.

 

591

00:58:01,333 --> 00:58:04,250

So, I take the most striking example;

 

592

00:58:04,291 --> 00:58:08,583

Palestinians and Israelis living side by side

in the city of Hebron.

 

593

00:58:08,583 --> 00:58:11,333

Literally one house next to the other house,

 

594

00:58:11,333 --> 00:58:14,250

and if both of them commit the same crime,

 

595

00:58:14,291 --> 00:58:17,333

the Palestinian will be tried in a military court,

 

596

00:58:17,375 --> 00:58:21,625

the Israeli will be tried in an Israeli criminal court.

 

597

00:58:22,041 --> 00:58:25,291

And then the rights and benefits that accrue to each person

 

598

00:58:25,333 --> 00:58:28,250

in those very different legal systems are quite different.

 

599

00:58:32,125 --> 00:58:34,333

The fact of the settlements in the occupied territories

 

600

00:58:34,333 --> 00:58:39,125

has caused a range of human rights violations for Palestinians.

 

601

00:58:39,166 --> 00:58:43,250

We have seen a very severe restriction

on Palestinian movement in the West Bank.

 

602

00:58:43,291 --> 00:58:46,583

That is the result of the need to protect settlements.

Zionist Caging Behavior

 

GFX 111: 00:58:53:20 – 00:58:59:11

In the 1980s the Israeli Army

began blocking streets

in Palestinian towns

 

GFX 112: 00:59:05:09 – 00:59:11:03

to keep Palestinian’s off roads

Israeli settlers use.

 

GFX 113: 00:59:14:15 – 00:59:19:01

Then Israel built cages

around the Palestinian refugee camps

603

00:59:39,917 --> 00:59:45,000

Prior to 1991, Palestinian’s could walk freely into Israel,

with no obstacles.

 

604

00:59:45,041 --> 00:59:48,375

Could travel between the West Bank and Gaza, with no obstacles.

 

605

00:59:48,500 --> 00:59:52,333

Beginning in 1991, and then much more clearly in 1993,

 

606

00:59:52,333 --> 00:59:56,917

you had restrictions on travel between

the West Bank, Israel, and the Gaza Strip.

 

607

01:00:00,083 --> 01:00:03,583

120,00 Palestinian workers

who we made dependent on Israel.

 

608

01:00:03,583 --> 01:00:07,458

The economy of Gaza depending on Israel for half its income.

 

609

01:00:07,458 --> 01:00:09,417

The economy of the West Bank dependent on Israel.

 

610

01:00:09,417 --> 01:00:12,083

All of you said goodbye, goodbye.

 

611

01:00:12,125 --> 01:00:15,417

It’s been nice knowing you.  No more. Closed, out.

Collective punishment because of fifteen

lethal attacks on Israelis in the month of March.

 

613

01:00:22,542 --> 01:00:27,208

Many Palestinians who had worked in Israel are now unemployed.

 

614

01:00:27,250 --> 01:00:30,250

Many Palestinians who had worked in East Jerusalem,

 

615

01:00:30,291 --> 01:00:32,583

which has been cut off from the rest of the territories,

 

616

01:00:33,000 --> 01:00:35,250

cannot go to their place of work.

 

617

01:00:35,291 --> 01:00:39,458

People wanting to go, for instance from Bethlehem to Ramallah,

 

618

01:00:39,458 --> 01:00:43,458

have a problem because they need a special license

 to pass through East Jerusalem.

 

619

01:00:43,458 --> 01:00:46,083

 The main fact about the closure is that Jerusalem,

 

620

01:00:46,125 --> 01:00:52,542

for the first time in history, is closed off

to the Arabs of the West Bank, and Gaza.

 

621

01:00:52,583 --> 01:00:54,583

That is they can’t come into Jerusalem.

Najib: Yeah, the yellow ones is the Israeli’s.

 

624

01:01:01,208 --> 01:01:06,250

The Palestinian ones have white and green.

 

625

01:01:06,291 --> 01:01:10,583

If you drive with the yellow ones, you will not stop in the checkpoint.

 

626

01:01:11,041 --> 01:01:13,250

You will just continue driving.

 

627

01:01:13,250 --> 01:01:15,583

And the Palestinian’s have to stop and to be checked.

 

628

01:01:17,041 --> 01:01:19,291

So yellow is for go.

 

629

01:01:19,333 --> 01:01:22,041

Yellow is for go.  Yeah.

 

630

01:01:22,625 --> 01:01:25,125

This is Route 60 where we are driving now.

 

631

01:01:25,166 --> 01:01:28,583

If you live on Route 60 you are really punished by God.

 

632

01:01:28,625 --> 01:01:33,250

Because this is a settler’s road.

 

633

01:01:33,250 --> 01:01:36,083

They all use Route 60.

 

634

01:01:36,083 --> 01:01:40,291

And any village that has an opening to Route 60 is closed.

 

635

01:01:40,333 --> 01:01:43,667

By dirt mounds, or by something.

 

636

01:01:44,000 --> 01:01:48,583

This street served the Palestinian towns,

 

637

01:01:49,000 --> 01:01:55,667

and it’s blocked from long, long, long years.

 

638

01:01:55,709 --> 01:01:59,166

You know in one side the Israelis say that road 60,

 

639

01:01:59,208 --> 01:02:02,083

it’s open for the Palestinians.  It’s not apartheid.

 

640

01:02:02,125 --> 01:02:04,250

But let them go.

 

641

01:02:04,250 --> 01:02:09,041

The connection of those Palestinian’s to that street is blocked.

 

642

01:02:09,792 --> 01:02:12,500

This is another closure of another village,

 

643

01:02:12,542 --> 01:02:17,125

so from this village to this village your road’s blocked.

 

644

01:02:17,166 --> 01:02:18,250

Its crazy.

 

645

01:02:18,375 --> 01:02:21,500

Leave the human rights alone.

Let’s not offend anybody.

Let’s let the nice little old grandmother’s go through,

 

648

01:02:26,583 --> 01:02:30,083

and let’s let the little school children with their backpacks go through.

 

649

01:02:30,125 --> 01:02:32,625

Do you know?  And then?

His little life.  His everyday life.

 

655

01:03:46,834 --> 01:03:48,458

Sometimes the soldier

 

656

01:03:48,500 --> 01:03:50,667

he close it in the middle, like that.

 

657

01:03:50,709 --> 01:03:52,834

And the people, they stuck in the middle.

 

658

01:03:52,875 --> 01:03:54,792

You can't go, and you can't come back.

 

 

 

659

01:03:54,834 --> 01:03:58,583

And the soldier is moody.  He does whatever he wants.

 

660

01:03:59,583 --> 01:04:05,625

I have to put all the metal things here

and come back and check my body.

 

661

01:04:05,667 --> 01:04:07,375

Now I am clear.

 

GFX 119: 01:04:07:09 – 01:04:11:01

Checkpoint between streets

In Khalil (Hebron)

 

GFX 120: 01:04:11:19 – 01:04:17:24

This baby’s pediatrician

is four miles

beyond this checkpoint

 

662

01:04:20,834 --> 01:04:25,083

Jessica:  It is not the case

that an individual who poses a security risk is restricted,

 

663

01:04:25,125 --> 01:04:28,083

and the general population is free to go about their business.

 

664

01:04:28,375 --> 01:04:29,583

In fact the opposite is the case.

 

665

01:04:30,041 --> 01:04:32,166

The entire population is restricted

 

666

01:04:32,208 --> 01:04:36,208

and only an individual who manages to get a permit

can move around freely.

 

 

 

667

01:04:36,208 --> 01:04:39,208

That is a collective punishment.

 

GFX 121:  01:04:39:12 – 01:04:41:16

Another checkpoint

between streets

in Khalil.

 

668

01:04:49,083 --> 01:04:52,291

Hanna: I call it The Time of the Natives.

It has no value.

 

669

01:04:52,333 --> 01:04:54,208

If the Israeli’s would have to stand like this

 

670

01:04:54,250 --> 01:04:56,417

you’d hear it in the radio, they will get out,

 

671

01:04:56,417 --> 01:05:00,875

they will make a big fuss if they have to stand for 10 minutes and wait.

 

672

01:05:00,959 --> 01:05:02,458

This can take an hour.

 

673

01:05:02,500 --> 01:05:06,250

I remember I was held up traveling

between the United States and Canada

 

674

01:05:06,250 --> 01:05:09,417

for ten minutes once.

 

675

01:05:09,458 --> 01:05:13,583

I was an American citizen.  I think it’s perfectly okay.

 

 

 

 

676

01:05:13,917 --> 01:05:17,125

Tom: Did you ever get stopped

between Evanston and Chicago?

 

677

01:05:17,166 --> 01:05:21,333

Well there’s no national border between,

 we’re talking about national borders.

 

GFX 122: 01:05:22:10 – 01:05:29:12

Checkpoint between cities of

Nablus and Jenin

 

678

01:05:32,542 --> 01:05:37,001

Hanna: I must emphasize

that we are speaking about the inner checkpoints.

 

679

01:05:37,041 --> 01:05:40,001

Checkpoints inside the West Bank.

 

GFX 123: 01:05:40:00 – 01:05:46:20

We are traveling with a yellow plate

so we don’t have to stop

 

680

01:05:43,917 --> 01:05:47,166

Najib: Let us ask them how long they are staying here.

 

681

01:05:47,583 --> 01:05:48,417

How are you.

 

682

01:05:48,458 --> 01:05:50,375

Praise God, good.

 

683

01:05:50,375 --> 01:05:51,750

How long have you waited?

 

684

01:05:51,792 --> 01:05:52,792

About 3 hours.

 

685

01:05:52,834 --> 01:05:54,458

NO!

 

686

01:05:54,458 --> 01:05:57,792

I swear to God.

 

687

01:05:57,834 --> 01:06:00,250

Since 10:45

 

688

01:06:00,458 --> 01:06:04,208

2 hours and 30.

 

689

01:06:04,375 --> 01:06:08,583

The Geldman family knows what it’s like to be on a road,

 

690

01:06:08,583 --> 01:06:10,417

which was open to everybody,

 

691

01:06:10,417 --> 01:06:14,500

and having a Palestinian car drive by us

 

692

01:06:14,542 --> 01:06:17,375

and then fire a sub machine gun into our car.

 

693

01:06:17,417 --> 01:06:23,208

Missing our bodies but destroying the bottom half of my car

 

694

01:06:23,667 --> 01:06:28,375

Tom: You have your children in a zone of military conflict,

 

695

01:06:28,834 --> 01:06:30,750

which is a choice on your part.

 

 

696

01:06:30,792 --> 01:06:33,001

And I wonder

why you do that?

 

697

01:06:33,041 --> 01:06:36,375

Apparently the sense you have

 

698

01:06:36,417 --> 01:06:40,041

of a immediate danger hovering over us,

 

699

01:06:40,083 --> 01:06:43,458

maybe you’re particular impression,

 

700

01:06:43,458 --> 01:06:46,375

but doesn’t reflect the reality on the ground.

 

701

01:06:46,417 --> 01:06:50,375

Tom: Well you told me your car had been shot up

with your children in it.

 

702

01:06:50,458 --> 01:06:54,166

Yeah but, uh, you know, that happened once.

 

703

01:06:55,041 --> 01:06:58,959

There are certain roads where no Palestinian can go.

 

704

01:06:59,000 --> 01:07:03,875

Even by foot, if you cross it by foot,

and you are caught by a Policeman,

 

705

01:07:03,917 --> 01:07:09,083

you have a fine.  A high fine. 

You’re not allowed to tread on those roads.

 

 

 

706

01:07:09,125 --> 01:07:12,208

You have Palestinian’s not being allowed to drive on roads,

 

707

01:07:12,250 --> 01:07:15,291

and Jews being shot up

when they do drive with Palestinian’s.

 

708

01:07:15,333 --> 01:07:19,291

Maybe Jews dying, maybe, isn’t as important

 

709

01:07:19,333 --> 01:07:22,333

as Palestinian’s not being able to travel.

 

GFX 124: 01:07:22:08 – 01:07:26:05

“JEWS ONLY” road

 

710

01:07:23,083 --> 01:07:27,500

Najib: To keep freedom of movement for the settlers,

 

711

01:07:27,542 --> 01:07:32,041

the is road blocked in the faces of the Palestinians.

 

712

01:07:32,083 --> 01:07:36,917

And you know the settlers are,

according to the International community,

 

713

01:07:36,959 --> 01:07:41,208

and Geneva Convention, and everything, they are against the Law,

 

714

01:07:41,250 --> 01:07:42,834

and the people suffering because of them.

 

715

01:07:42,875 --> 01:07:46,625

Every one of these roads that they can’t pass

 

 

716

01:07:46,667 --> 01:07:50,083

is making it more difficult to get bread.

 

717

01:07:50,125 --> 01:07:53,208

They are all connected, this is all connected to one another.

 

718

01:07:53,208 --> 01:07:56,333

And it’s all in the system, it’s a system:

 

719

01:07:56,375 --> 01:08:01,041

To make their life so miserable that they’ll go away.

 

GFX 125: 01:007:59:23 – 01:08:07:15

By 2009 Israel had erected more than

600 checkpoints and barriers

within the West Bank

[Note: Center in top of frame]

 

720

01:08:07,041 --> 01:08:10,625

Is the terrorist sitting with the people in the cars now?

 

721

01:08:11,041 --> 01:08:18,250

Is the guy with the bomb

now sitting and wait, till the soldiers now check?

 

722

01:08:18,291 --> 01:08:21,041

It’s crazy!  He could cross from everywhere else.

 

723

01:08:21,083 --> 01:08:25,083

He don’t have to go now by this checkpoint.

 

724

01:08:26,041 --> 01:08:29,083

They’re called checkpoints but they’re really not checkpoints.

 

 

 

725

01:08:29,125 --> 01:08:31,583

They are road blocks!

 

726

01:08:31,625 --> 01:08:35,000

A checkpoint is something where you are checked, and you go.

 

727

01:08:35,041 --> 01:08:37,834

No!  Here you are checked and you stay.

 

728

01:08:37,917 --> 01:08:39,083

Are you allowed to be here?

 

729

01:08:39,125 --> 01:08:40,208

Yeah, why not?

 

730

01:08:40,250 --> 01:08:41,125

I don't think so.

 

731

01:08:41,166 --> 01:08:43,125

Why?

 

732

01:08:43,166 --> 01:08:46,583

I was born here. This is my house.

 

733

01:08:47,000 --> 01:08:49,083

Listen, you cannot be here.

 

734

01:08:49,083 --> 01:08:50,333

You’re not allowed to be here.

 

735

01:08:50,375 --> 01:08:54,375

You can go from around there, from the…exit from the casbah there.

 

 

 

736

01:08:54,417 --> 01:08:56,083

Here you cannot be.

 

737

01:08:56,083 --> 01:08:57,333

Tell your commander that I want to visit my home.

 

738

01:08:57,333 --> 01:09:02,875

Listen sir.  I’m not having a discussion with you right now.

 

739

01:09:02,917 --> 01:09:06,291

I need you to leave here.

 

740

01:09:07,000 --> 01:09:12,041

The suffering of millions of innocent people,

 

741

01:09:12,083 --> 01:09:17,917

who have done no harm whatsoever, ever in their lives,

 

742

01:09:17,959 --> 01:09:24,041

and have to succumb to this every single step they take.

 

743

01:09:24,083 --> 01:09:29,333

There must be some better way to prevent terrorist acts.

 

744

01:09:29,375 --> 01:09:33,959

People get so frustrated that the hatred grows to such degrees,

 

745

01:09:34,000 --> 01:09:38,083

that of course there are terrorist acts.

 

746

01:09:41,083 --> 01:09:43,500

If a train station has blown up,

 

 

 

747

01:09:43,542 --> 01:09:47,041

if a plane station is blown up, do you know?

 

748

01:09:47,041 --> 01:09:54,750

Like at what point do you say that a basic right that I have

 

749

01:09:54,792 --> 01:09:57,458

is to travel safely in my town?

Everything is turned on its head.

 

752

01:10:23,667 --> 01:10:27,250

The occupying power is the innocent victim,

 

753

01:10:27,291 --> 01:10:31,959

and the oppressed people are the perpetrators.

 

754

01:10:32,001 --> 01:10:32,875

And it works!

 

755

01:10:33,041 --> 01:10:36,542

Rather than say, “Well let’s talk about the checkpoints,”

 

756

01:10:36,583 --> 01:10:38,458

I would say let’s talk about the terrorism.

 

757

01:10:38,500 --> 01:10:40,458

You know, why was there terrorism to begin with?

 

758

01:10:40,500 --> 01:10:45,709

Why was terrorism ever considered to be

a legitimate form of resistance?

 

759

01:10:45,750 --> 01:10:55,333

Or a legitimate form of, ah, political,

ah, pressure on the state of Israel.

01:10:59,458 --> 01:11:05,750

It became clear that peace negotiations

were simply a mask for an attempt to gain time,

 

761

01:11:05,750 --> 01:11:08,417

while continuing to put settlers into the West Bank,

 

762

01:11:08,458 --> 01:11:11,208

so as to create a defacto situation

 

763

01:11:11,250 --> 01:11:15,166

where there would be no possibility

for anything like a Palestinian state ever coming into being.

 

764

01:11:19,750 --> 01:11:22,250

Najib: Oslo started in 1993,

 

765

01:11:22,250 --> 01:11:27,750

and why the Intifadah start again at the September 2000,

 

766

01:11:27,750 --> 01:11:37,250

because 7 years after Oslo,

the Palestinians don’t see Nothing on the Earth changed.

 

767

01:11:37,250 --> 01:11:39,583

And they said, “Hey, it’s bullshit!”

 

768

01:11:39,625 --> 01:11:43,417

In fact the settler population

doubled during the Oslo process.

 

769

01:11:43,458 --> 01:11:47,792

So for Palestinians,

the view from their window of increasing settlements,

 

770

01:11:48,041 --> 01:11:51,417

along with the human rights violations that settlement’s created;

 

771

01:11:51,417 --> 01:11:55,250

All of that continued despite the Oslo process.

18,000 houses have been demolished.

70% of the land has been expropriated.

01:12:09,792 --> 01:12:13,250

You’ve got 300 Israeli settlements on Palestinian land.

01:12:28,542 --> 01:12:35,083

about how backward and primitive and cruel,

etcetera the Arabs are.

As if they were, but that’s the image,

that’s the result of the demonization.

You can complain all you want about it. 

You chose to live here,

 

780

01:12:42,125 --> 01:12:47,125

you chose to come here, to put yourself here.

 

781

01:12:47,166 --> 01:12:49,291

And now you’re saying you don’t like the neighbors?

 

782

01:12:49,333 --> 01:12:53,166

They were living here when you, when you put yourself here.

 

783

01:12:53,208 --> 01:12:56,792

So be ready to talk with them, ah, to deal with them.

 

784

01:12:57,041 --> 01:13:01,041

Instead of thinking that you’re going to

get them to do your will by hitting them,

 

785

01:13:01,083 --> 01:13:03,417

hitting them enough over the head.

 

786

01:13:03,458 --> 01:13:04,875

It doesn’t work.

01:13:04,917 --> 01:13:12,291

They fight for their independence using All Means,

 

788

01:13:12,333 --> 01:13:17,291

and the State of Israel tries to suppress them,

 

789

01:13:17,333 --> 01:13:22,542

also using All Means.

 

790

01:13:22,583 --> 01:13:25,417

And you understand the meaning of the term,

01:13:25,417 --> 01:13:29,583

“All Means.”

The wall is being built on Palestinian territory.

 

796

01:15:14,875 --> 01:15:17,500

Jessica: You now have the construction of the Separation Barrier,

 

797

01:15:17,542 --> 01:15:20,750

justified to prevent Palestinians from entering Israel,

 

798

01:15:20,750 --> 01:15:25,125

although of course the route of the barrier,

where Israel has chosen to build it,

 

799

01:15:25,166 --> 01:15:29,166

is mostly inside the West Bank

in order to safeguard settlements,

 

GFX 139: 01:15:29:05 – 01:15:33:14

Gilo Settlement

[Note: Place in upper right in sky above settlement]

 

 

800

01:15:29,208 --> 01:15:33,208

and even to ensure the future expansion of settlements.

 

801

01:15:33,417 --> 01:15:37,375

The barrier is encircling empty lands

and settlements inside the West Bank,

 

802

01:15:37,417 --> 01:15:42,250

causing further hardship to Palestinian’s.

 

803

01:15:45,083 --> 01:15:50,000

Arik: Yes we have real, legitimate, security needs.

 

804

01:15:50,041 --> 01:15:58,083

Yes, building a barrier could be a legitimate way to help protect Israelis.

 

805

01:15:58,125 --> 01:16:02,083

But the route of the barrier, as now constructed,

 

806

01:16:02,083 --> 01:16:05,583

disproportionately and unnecessarily,

violates Palestinian human rights,

 

807

01:16:05,583 --> 01:16:07,125

and international law.

 

808

01:16:07,166 --> 01:16:09,500

You know the International Court at the Hague

 

809

01:16:09,542 --> 01:16:11,750

condemned the course that the wall’s taken.

 

810

01:16:11,750 --> 01:16:16,500

Because Israel, very unwisely I think,

chose to build the wall inside Palestinian territory,

 

811

01:16:16,542 --> 01:16:20,583

thus annexing large swatches of Palestinian land.

 

812

01:16:20,625 --> 01:16:23,625

Israel ghettoizes the whole population in,

 

813

01:16:23,667 --> 01:16:27,083

and doesn’t even build its wall on its own territory.

 

814

01:16:27,458 --> 01:16:34,333

The Israelis had a very big, dirty,

 

815

01:16:34,375 --> 01:16:41,583

opportunity for land grabs under security excuses.

 

816

01:16:43,959 --> 01:16:49,000

And you see that the wall (is) built just beside the houses

 

817

01:16:49,000 --> 01:16:50,542

They touch the houses.

 

818

01:16:50,583 --> 01:16:53,375

And all their property, their land,

 

819

01:16:53,417 --> 01:16:56,041

is still outside the wall.

 

820

01:16:56,417 --> 01:17:00,667

This is the dream of the Israeli authorities.

 

821

01:17:00,709 --> 01:17:03,375

A land without people.

 

 

822

01:17:03,417 --> 01:17:06,875

So you see the people still in one side,

 

823

01:17:06,959 --> 01:17:13,709

the land is still, still and stolen,

by the Israelis.

 

824

01:17:30,041 --> 01:17:34,208

This wall is basically a Western wall,

 

825

01:17:34,250 --> 01:17:36,667

a European wall,

 

826

01:17:36,709 --> 01:17:41,750

separating Israel as the kind of last foot of Europe set into this area,

 

827

01:17:42,041 --> 01:17:48,875

and then we have this wall, and from beyond it

begins the Dangerous East.

 

828

01:17:48,917 --> 01:17:52,792

Which we don’t want to see,

and don’t want to have anything to do with.

 

829

01:17:52,834 --> 01:17:57,083

That won’t work. It won’t work.

 

830

01:17:58,083 --> 01:18:01,083

Another form of collective punishment

which is much more explicit

 

831

01:18:01,125 --> 01:18:03,208

is the demolition of Palestinian houses.

 

 

 

832

01:18:03,250 --> 01:18:08,083

There are three different forms of house demolitions

taking place in the occupied territories.

 

833

01:18:08,083 --> 01:18:12,458

The first is what Israel calls a deterrent house demolition.

 

834

01:18:12,500 --> 01:18:15,500

And these are the demolition of houses of Palestinians

 

835

01:18:15,542 --> 01:18:18,291

who have been involved,or are suspected of being involved,

 

836

01:18:18,333 --> 01:18:21,458

in violent activities against Israelis.

 

GFX 140:  01:18:21:11 – 01:18:26:10

Three families

live in this house

 

GFX 141: 01:18:27:21 – 01:18:33:12

The son of one of the women

living here attacked an Israeli

 

837

01:18:33,375 --> 01:18:36,583

Most of the perpetrators are either dead or in prison,

 

838

01:18:36,625 --> 01:18:38,417

so they are not being punished.

 

839

01:18:38,417 --> 01:18:42,291

Who is being punished is the person’s family.

 

840

01:18:46,792 --> 01:18:49,709

There is no way to understand

these kind of house demolitions,

 

841

01:18:49,750 --> 01:18:52,375

except as a collective punishment.

 

842

01:18:52,417 --> 01:18:57,041

Even if the person is a murderer,

the people being punished are the murderer’s wife,

 

843

01:18:57,083 --> 01:19:00,792

the murderer’s children, or brother, or parents, or neighbors.

 

844

01:19:01,125 --> 01:19:04,583

Most of the victims of this policy are children.

 

845

01:19:06,333 --> 01:19:10,750

The policy of demolishing Palestinian homes didn’t begin in 1967.

 

846

01:19:10,792 --> 01:19:18,250

In 48’ and after, Israel demolished

more than 400 entire Palestinian villages inside Israel.

 

847

01:19:18,291 --> 01:19:21,583

Two thirds of the villages of Palestine were demolished by Israel.

 

848

01:19:21,750 --> 01:19:27,625

The government afraid that this village will expand

 

849

01:19:27,667 --> 01:19:31,000

toward the Pisgat Ze’ev Jewish neighborhood.

 

850

01:19:31,041 --> 01:19:34,709

So in order to stop expansion of the village,

 

851

01:19:34,750 --> 01:19:39,000

they demolished all the houses in this peripheral area.

 

852

01:19:39,041 --> 01:19:45,000

So the idea is that the Jewish,

they have the right to expand.

 

853

01:19:45,041 --> 01:19:46,709

The Palestinians, no.

 

854

01:19:46,750 --> 01:19:52,041

In fact the Jewish neighborhood of Pisgat Ze’Ev

are in Palestinians’ lands.

 

855

01:19:52,083 --> 01:19:57,166

The people that lived there

before the settlements have been Palestinians.

 

856

01:19:57,208 --> 01:20:00,083

They lived there for generations.

 

857

01:20:00,083 --> 01:20:04,083

So to come and to say "I’m sorry Mohammed,

this belongs to the state.

 

858

01:20:04,083 --> 01:20:09,291

Go on and we will build here a settlement for Jewish alone."

 

859

01:20:09,333 --> 01:20:11,709

This is a ..

 

860

01:20:12,125 --> 01:20:15,083

This is a crime.

This is racism.

 

861

01:20:15,166 --> 01:20:18,125

This is segregation.

 

 

862

01:20:18,250 --> 01:20:22,750

The building is continuing,

and we feel very confident

 

863

01:20:22,750 --> 01:20:27,083

that the idea of a return of the Jews

to the land of the Jews,

 

864

01:20:27,125 --> 01:20:30,375

despite the political differences, and the security problems,

 

865

01:20:30,417 --> 01:20:36,291

all this is continuing, and growing, and expanding.

 

866

01:20:36,500 --> 01:20:40,125

This house, they demolished two weeks ago.

 

867

01:20:40,166 --> 01:20:43,250

They are 24 members in the family,

 

868

01:20:43,250 --> 01:20:46,166

and they live peacefully.

 

869

01:20:46,208 --> 01:20:48,667

They are not terrorists.  They are not criminals.

 

870

01:20:48,709 --> 01:20:50,208

It’s a shock.

 

871

01:20:50,250 --> 01:20:55,959

It’s a traumatic moment for the family,

and especially for the kids.

 

872

01:20:57,000 --> 01:20:59,083

The kids are tremendously traumatized.

 

873

01:20:59,083 --> 01:21:06,291

Can you imagine?  Just getting up in the morning,

having breakfast, trotting off to third grade.

 

874

01:21:06,333 --> 01:21:10,417

Coming back at one o clock for lunch.

There’s no house.

 

875

01:21:10,417 --> 01:21:13,083

It’s the stuff of horror movies.

 

876

01:21:13,125 --> 01:21:15,208

I’ve seen kids go into convulsions.

 

877

01:21:15,250 --> 01:21:19,000

Here you come over the hill, and your house is gone.

 

878

01:21:19,041 --> 01:21:21,375

Your house is gone. You don’t see your parents.

 

879

01:21:21,750 --> 01:21:24,458

Everything familiar is missing.

 

880

01:21:24,500 --> 01:21:29,291

You know, and kids, they enter into, they enter into a trauma, and a panic,

 

881

01:21:29,333 --> 01:21:32,667

that  has to last with them for their whole lives.

 

882

01:21:32,834 --> 01:21:35,083

More than 20 children lived here.

 

 

 

 

883

01:21:35,083 --> 01:21:41,959

If one of them, one day will, eh ..

will be a terrorist, who can eh ..

 

884

01:21:42,667 --> 01:21:44,583

Who can blame them?

 

885

01:21:44,625 --> 01:21:46,375

How do say in English?

GAZA

 

886

01:21:50,083 --> 01:21:52,417

The most widespread form of house demolition

 

887

01:21:52,458 --> 01:21:58,667

is what Israel calls clearing operations,

or houses demolished during military operations.

 

888

01:21:58,709 --> 01:22:02,500

This has taken place on a very large scale in the Gaza strip,

 

889

01:22:02,542 --> 01:22:04,750

and most dramatically in Rafah.

 

890

01:22:04,750 --> 01:22:08,458

now a sterile strip has been created on the border with Egypt.

 

892

01:22:12,750 --> 01:22:16,083

Hundreds and hundreds of houses demolished there.

It’s clear that there will not be peace

 

894

01:23:26,041 --> 01:23:29,750

if we continue to demolish houses of innocent people.

 

895

01:23:30,000 --> 01:23:37,500

But what is more dangerous is what this do

to the Israelians people.

 

896

01:23:37,542 --> 01:23:41,333

So you’re right, to the Israelian soldiers,

to the Israelian civilians,

 

897

01:23:41,375 --> 01:23:45,875

because we become from year to year, more ..

Turn the camera off

 

902

01:24:05,208 --> 01:24:06,750

I'll call the police.

 

903

What do you want from us?

 

904

01:24:11,001 --> 01:24:12,709

Whore.

 

905

01:24:13,750 --> 01:24:15,834

Whore.

 

906

01:24:15,875 --> 01:24:17,458

You are!

 

907

01:24:17,500 --> 01:24:20,709

Whore.

 

 

908

01:24:20,709 --> 01:24:22,542

They’re trespassers.

 

909

01:24:22,583 --> 01:24:25,375

The Arabs are trespassers in the land of Israel. 

It’s not their country.

 

910

01:24:25,417 --> 01:24:28,250

They have 22 countries,

let them go live in their own country.

 

911

01:24:28,291 --> 01:24:30,083

The land of Israel belongs to the Jewish people.

 

912

01:24:30,083 --> 01:24:31,291

Not to the Arabs.

 

913

01:24:31,500 --> 01:24:37,625

The idea is you’re security lies in implanting yourself in the earth.

 

914

01:24:37,667 --> 01:24:40,250

And so we have this movement, the Zionist movement,

 

915

01:24:40,291 --> 01:24:45,041

and it’s no surprise therefore,

when we find Judaism as it’s practiced,

 

916

01:24:45,083 --> 01:24:48,750

as it expresses itself in Israel,

to be an earth rooted movement,

 

917

01:24:49,000 --> 01:24:51,750

not a people rooted movement.

 

918

01:24:51,792 --> 01:24:54,083

And to behave in the way that earth rooted movements

 

919

01:24:54,125 --> 01:24:58,375

have always behaved toward strangers in their midst.

 

920

01:25:02,417 --> 01:25:06,083

Religion and politics have gotten interwoven here

 

921

01:25:06,125 --> 01:25:08,417

in an immoral way.

 

922

01:25:08,458 --> 01:25:11,375

It’s immoral what they do with religion, to my mind.

 

923

01:25:11,417 --> 01:25:14,500

And its not Jewish, it’s un-Jewish.

 

924

01:25:14,667 --> 01:25:21,333

There is a way leading from humanity,

 

925

01:25:21,333 --> 01:25:23,917

to nationality,

 

926

01:25:23,959 --> 01:25:27,375

to bestiality.

928

01:25:52,125 --> 01:25:54,333

is to remember that we’re responsible.

 

929

01:25:54,375 --> 01:25:56,667

Here more than anywhere else.

 

930

01:25:56,709 --> 01:26:02,458

It’s easy to be for all kinds of wonderful values in the diaspora.

 

931

01:26:02,500 --> 01:26:05,333

This is the acid test. This is the reality test,

 

932

01:26:05,375 --> 01:26:10,333

to all these values that we’ve held for all these generations.

 

933

01:26:11,041 --> 01:26:12,417

I think the American Jewish community

 

934

01:26:12,417 --> 01:26:15,542

has played a very dishonorable role in this whole thing.

 

935

01:26:15,583 --> 01:26:19,709

You know, Israel claims to speak for them.

And they accept that.

 

936

01:26:19,750 --> 01:26:23,250

That Israel is our country in one way or another.

 

937

01:26:23,291 --> 01:26:28,625

It’s a Jewish country.  It speaks for the Jews.

It represents the Jews.

 

938

01:26:28,667 --> 01:26:34,583

And so that makes them complicit

in all these human rights violations.

There’s an enormous American responsibility

940

01:26:49,375 --> 01:26:52,166

So I don’t think Americans can sit back,

 

941

01:26:52,208 --> 01:26:58,500

as if they were observing the situation from afar,

with a kind of lordly distance.

 

942

01:26:58,542 --> 01:27:00,583

As if they had no part in it.

 

943

01:27:00,625 --> 01:27:04,125

It’s because of that American veto in the Security Council

01:27:04,166 --> 01:27:08,083

that Israel is able to go on acting the way it has,

 

945

01:27:08,125 --> 01:27:13,333

which I think will lead to it’s own destruction,

if it’s allowed to go on like this.

 

946

01:27:14,166 --> 01:27:18,417

Mr. Speaker, the Prime Minister of Israel.

 

947

01:27:22,166 --> 01:27:26,083

This occupation is not conceived as an Israeli occupation.

 

 

 

948

01:27:26,458 --> 01:27:30,959

It’s perceived as an America –Israeli occupation.

 

949

01:27:31,000 --> 01:27:35,333

And its clear that Israel

couldn’t maintain this occupation for a month

 

950

01:27:35,375 --> 01:27:38,250

without the political, and military,

and financial support

 

951

01:27:38,250 --> 01:27:40,208

that the United States offers.

 

952

01:27:40,500 --> 01:27:43,500

God will give strength to his people.

 

953

01:27:43,542 --> 01:27:46,625

God will bless his people with peace.

 

954

01:27:46,667 --> 01:27:49,959

Thank you very much.

 

GFX 153: 01:27:54:11 – 01:28:06:12

The U.S. government has blessed Israel

with over 100 billion taxpayer dollars.

More than any other country on Earth.

 

GFX 154:  01:28:07:08 – 01:28:20:06

The majority of America’s

U.N. Security Council vetoes

have served to shield Israel’s behavior

from the will of the international community,

and the force of international law.

 

955

01:28:19,458 --> 01:28:24,458

The very attitude that Israel has a kind of sanctity, holiness to it,

 

956

01:28:24,458 --> 01:28:26,750

and must not be criticized,

 

957

01:28:27,000 --> 01:28:34,250

enables Israel to perform actions

which make it a very unsafe place for Jews to be.

 

958

01:28:34,250 --> 01:28:39,583

And which also make the world

an unsafe place for Jews to be.

 

959

01:28:40,959 --> 01:28:45,166

Anat: We are fantasizing at nights

on how they’ll mutilate and kill us.

 

960

01:28:45,166 --> 01:28:49,792

We are doing it,

and we are fantasizing how it would happen to us.

 

961

01:28:50,041 --> 01:28:53,667

This is, seriously, this is what we’re doing.

 

962

01:28:53,709 --> 01:28:59,083

And, to overcome this,

we must meet the enemy as a human being.

 

963

01:28:59,125 --> 01:29:04,542

Hi. My name is Shireen.  I’m from Gaza.

 

GFX 155: 01:29:04:18 – 01:59:11:09

Gaza Population

1.8 Million

 

964

01:29:04,959 --> 01:29:10,583

The Gaza Strip: A space only 22 miles long and 5 miles wide.

 

 

965

01:29:13,959 --> 01:29:20,208

I’m Palestinian from Gaza,

which is considered as a big jail.

 

GFX 156: 01:29:21:05 – 01:29:28:12

1.2 million residents of Gaza are

Palestinian refugees from villages

ethnically cleansed by Israeli forces

in 1948.

 

GFX 157: 01:29:31:18 – 01:29:43:07

It’s an internment camp

For the native inhabitants

the size of Mobile, Alabama

with ten times the population

 

966

01:29:48,458 --> 01:29:50,542

That’s about the 4th explosion.

Voice of Chuck Carlson

American Activist

Gaza Strip

 

967

01:29:50,583 --> 01:29:52,500

All over the city dogs are barking.

 

968

01:29:52,834 --> 01:29:56,750

Death is around you,

always around you.

 

969

01:29:57,166 --> 01:30:00,458

Last night, large numbers of people killed.

 

970

01:30:00,750 --> 01:30:02,750

Now I hear the ambulances running.

 

 

 

 

971

01:30:10,500 --> 01:30:15,208

Can you imagine this feeling that I feel always

when we are, we are bombed?

 

972

01:30:15,542 --> 01:30:20,291

Apache helicopters hovering up there.

 

973

01:30:20,333 --> 01:30:22,208

It’s happening just at bedtime here,

 

974

01:30:22,250 --> 01:30:26,250

9 o’clock at night.

Just when the kids go to bed.

 

975

01:30:26,583 --> 01:30:28,500

This feeling, exactly this feeling;

 

976

01:30:28,542 --> 01:30:33,750

That you are in your room, in your bed.

You’re praying.

 

977

01:30:50,583 --> 01:30:54,125

Here we are again.

The choppers very close this time.

 

978

01:30:54,667 --> 01:30:56,375

Here comes another bomb.

 

979

01:30:57,417 --> 01:30:58,083

It’s gonna explode.

 

980

01:31:22,000 --> 01:31:26,333

You are praying because you feel that,

your room, only your room

 

 

981

01:31:26,375 --> 01:31:31,041

will be bombed from the whole building.

 

982

01:31:42,458 --> 01:31:46,583

Here comes another one,

fired from a much lower angle, right off to my left

 

983

01:31:46,583 --> 01:31:50,583

They’re coming right down across the town.

 

984

01:31:50,625 --> 01:31:56,041

It’s 3 am and the killing is going on.

 

985

01:31:56,208 --> 01:32:02,291

Imagine.

The United States paying for all this?

 

986

01:33:47,375 --> 01:33:51,792

They bombed my house.

Why?

 

987

01:33:54,417 --> 01:33:58,125

You have to be a human being

 

988

01:33:58,166 --> 01:34:02,375

who understands that other people are also human beings.

 

989

01:34:02,417 --> 01:34:06,083

And that you can’t punish a whole society.

 

990

01:34:06,125 --> 01:34:10,166

The war, as Israel calls it,

against the Palestinians

 

 

 

991

01:34:10,208 --> 01:34:13,333

is really a war against the Palestinian people.

 

992

01:34:13,375 --> 01:34:16,000

Palestinians don’t have a state.

They don’t have an army.

 

993

01:34:16,041 --> 01:34:18,208

This is a war against people.

 

994

01:34:18,250 --> 01:34:21,667

And it’s against people who are fighting for their freedom.

 

GFX 159:  01:34:22:24 – 01:34:30:15

“The Arabs are multiplying

twice as fast at the Israelis.”

Professor Sergio Della Pergola

The Jewish Journal April 8, 2010

 

GFX 160:  01:34:32:02 – 01:34:40:20

“As long as .. west of the Jordan river

There is only one political entity

called Israel it is going to be either

non-Jewish, or non-democratic.”

 

GFX 161:  01:34:40:25 – 01:34:50:03

If this block of millions of

Palestinians cannot vote,

That will be an apartheid state.”

Ehud Barak

Former Israeli Prime Minister

 

995

01:34:49,542 --> 01:34:55,125

You know we would like to have a Jewish Democratic state,

but we’re stuck with Arabs that don’t want to go away.

 

996

01:34:55,166 --> 01:34:57,667

So I say, forget it.

 

 

997

01:34:57,709 --> 01:35:01,000

Jewish Democratic state may have been a dream for a while

 

998

01:35:01,041 --> 01:35:04,250

but, you know, let’s, let’s leave it now.

 

999

01:35:04,250 --> 01:35:07,750

You can’t have  an ethnic democracy, you know?

What is this ethnic democracy?

 

1000

01:35:07,750 --> 01:35:10,417

It’s called ethnocracy, you know?

 

1001

01:35:10,417 --> 01:35:14,250

So, I don’t believe in it.

I think it’s a, I think it's a lie.

 

1002

01:35:14,250 --> 01:35:16,125

And now if somebody would come and tell me,

 

1003

01:35:16,166 --> 01:35:18,583

“Look Tomer, I would like to have an apartheid state

 

1004

01:35:18,583 --> 01:35:23,166

where a small Jewish minority

rules over a large Arab majority,“

 

1005

01:35:23,208 --> 01:35:26,083

so you know, what can I say? Okay.

 

1006

01:35:27,083 --> 01:35:30,000

The prognosis is that the majority of people

 

1007

01:35:30,041 --> 01:35:32,792

living West of the Jordan River will be Arabs.

 

1008

01:35:33,041 --> 01:35:37,792

Israel’s ruling over a group

where the majority will be Arab.

 

1009

01:35:37,917 --> 01:35:42,375

Israel’s locked into this apartheid position.

 

1010

01:35:42,417 --> 01:35:45,458

That it can’t get rid of these Palestinians,

 

1011

01:35:45,500 --> 01:35:49,250

but in order to control the entire country,

and get them off our hands,

 

1012

01:35:49,291 --> 01:35:51,083

we have to have a Bantustan.

 

1013

01:35:51,125 --> 01:35:53,458

It’s exactly the same logic as South Africa.

 

1014

01:35:53,709 --> 01:35:58,291

If we went by the option of

taking all the Arabs and moving them to one place.

 

1015

01:35:58,333 --> 01:36:02,542

If we went by the option of saying that it would be a combined state.

 

1016

01:36:02,583 --> 01:36:06,083

If we went any options, they’re not dealing with the core of the problem.

 

1017

01:36:06,125 --> 01:36:09,041

The core of problem is educating democracy.

 

 

 

1018

01:36:09,083 --> 01:36:14,750

I’ve lost my patience

for this double-faced talking about Jewish Democracy.

 

1019

01:36:15,667 --> 01:36:18,333

It doesn't work anymore.

 

1020

01:36:18,375 --> 01:36:19,458

People come and say,

 

1021

01:36:19,500 --> 01:36:22,250

“Well you need to understand,

things are complicated.

 

1022

01:36:22,291 --> 01:36:24,041

There are things here, there are things there.”

 

1023

01:36:24,083 --> 01:36:26,792

And I say it’s bullshit.

Things are not complicated.

 

1024

01:36:27,041 --> 01:36:30,083

They're simple,

and things are black and white.

 

1025

01:36:30,125 --> 01:36:34,417

Either you believe in democracy,

or you believe in a Jewish state.

 

1026

01:36:34,458 --> 01:36:37,583

And everybody has to make his choice,

and I’ve made mine.

 

1027

01:36:37,583 --> 01:36:40,625

And I urge everybody else to make theirs.

 

1028

01:36:41,250 --> 01:36:42,583

Tom: And what was your choice?

 

1029

01:36:42,625 --> 01:36:46,667

Democracy.
