The Settlements the Gas, and this & that
10 March 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Those that have posted negative reviews somehow managed to make several interesting mistakes that suggest that they too are cherry-picking the facts; (1) they somehow just blunder right over and completely ignore the fortified Jewish-Settlements built in the Palestinian-Territories. Remember that when they complain about this documentary ignoring their litany of complaints. (2) Others complained about the poison gas rumors, I don't know if its true or not, but those who claimed no proof was provided evidently weren't watching when the doctor from Doctors Without Borders provided her diagnosis and video footage of the affected people going through whatever it was they were going through was presented. Remember that when they complain about this documentary ignoring their litany of complains. Further more, this documentary was not intended to provide a clear and concise look at the conflict going right back to 'the beginning' and providing a clear and concise look at all the atrocities, crimes/war-crimes, forced removal from land, etc that all parties have committed – you want that go watch PBS, Frontline, the BBC or something. It was meant to go look at the people living in the Gaza Strip, and see who they were, what their lives were like, what they live through, etc. There is no way to justify the intentional & deliberate killing of civilians, to even attempt to is give up all claims to humanity, and this is a standard we must apply to all of us. Finally while I consider myself a pacifist, I don't know how long I'd be able to continue denouncing all forms of violence from my Parisian-café while Nazi-German troops patrolled the streets, or while selling newspapers on a street-corner in the Gaza Strip and peoples homes are demolished and refugee camps are established so that those who have a rather odd interpretation of their religion can take other peoples land for themselves. (Note: I do not intended to compare Nazi-Germany with Israel and its Jewish-Settlements, if you see it other wise then I apologize. It is merely to provide a historical example of which there is little or no argument over the validity of, i.e. the French-Resistance)
