I am a university student studying Journalism and my lecturer made us watch this video in class to show us a different side of how the Arab/Israeli conflict is reported. I knew some facts about it because my dad is Israeli but I never knew that in the Friday sermons at the mosques hatred is preached. I can assure you that at most synagogues the focus is on prayer not the rabbi standing at the pulpit and preaching hatred and telling everyone to go kill people. What kind of religious leader does that? The quote of JFK is so true. "Peace isn't about charters and agreements. Peace should live in the hearts and the minds of people". Arafat probably thought nobody was watching him when he was at home in the West Bank because when he was at home he presented one image where he is in support of terrorism and when he spoke to people like Bush and Clinton he condemned terrorist actions. I mean come on! Make a decision Arafat! Are you against terror or not? It doesn't really matter anymore I suppose because Arafat is dead now. I reckon they should put this documentary on T.V. because it would open the world's eyes and they would see that the Israelis are not the aggressors in this situation. They might seem like the aggressors because the Palestinains have been brain washed into believing that terrorism is the only way of dealing with problems so in order to get through to these people the Israelis have to use the only method of communication that Palestinains understand which is violence.
