Storyline

In a series of extraordinary interviews with both Palestinians and Israelis, John Pilger weaves together the issue of Palestine. He speaks to the families of suicide bombers and their victims; he sees the humiliation of Palestinians imposed on them at myriad checkpoints and with a permit system not dissimilar to apartheid South Africa's infamous pass laws. He goes into the refugee camps and meets children who, he says, "no longer dream like other children, or if they do, it is about death." Written by Ørnås

Not worth your time or dimes.
4 May 2004 | by (NorCal, USA) – See all my reviews

This film is completely one-sided and lacking truth on a subject that is constantly in our news.

This film's presenter John Pilger was not very HONEST when addressing issues such as history. False statements like "Israel is the world's 4th largest military", poison this film. In reality Israel's IDF ranks 13th behind Syria, Morocco, Turkey, Pakistan, Vietnam, France, Germany and others large nations.

In 1982 this Writer and presenter of the film screwed up an article on Thai prostitution rings so bad that the Oxford dictionary actually coined a term "Pilgering" which basically means to make up a story so it supports your conclusion or views.

Pilger uses misquotes and historical information that has been proven false.

He ignores the fact that the Palestine Mandate was split to form Israel(Palestine) and Transjordan, which actually is 78% of "historical Palestine" or historical Israel, depending on your views. Pilger makes the mistake of saying that Israel controlled 78% of the land after the 1948 War of Independece. Looking at any historical map, one can see that this is simply untrue with Israel controlling 55% of Historic Israel.

In short this film is filled with lies that can be found on any hate website attacking Jews or Israel. These Nazi-style tactics are horrid and only show how far people will go to discredit the only free democracy in the Middle East.
