Ever since 17-year-old Rachel Levy, an Israeli, was killed four years ago in Jerusalem by a Palestinian suicide bomber, her mother Abigail has found hardly a moment's peace. Levy's killer was Ayat al-Akhras, also 17, a schoolgirl from a Palestinian refugee camp several miles away. The two young women looked unbelievably alike. TO DIE IN JERUSALEM unabashedly explores the Palestinian-Israeli conflict through the personal loss of two families. The film's most revealing moment is in an emotionally charged meeting between the mothers of the girls, presenting the most current reflection of the conflict as seen thru their eyes.

A culture of life vs. culture of death
25 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Part of the reason for the continuation of the Arab-Israeli conflict, aside from the fact that the Arabs refuse to accept the fact that Jews have a right to live in their homeland is that there are diametrically opposing cultures.

Judaism and western culture value life above everything else - ALL life. Muslim and Arab culture glorifies death and murder as a way of achieving honor. Arab fathers will murder their daughters if they believe they have dishonored the family. Sadly, such "honor killings" happen often. This is unthinkable in Judeo/Western culture. There is also the problem of the constant anti-Israel, anti-Semitic propaganda campaign going on in Palestinian Authority schools and media. This makes coexistence difficult if not impossible when the PA is constantly demonizing Jews. Israelis for their part have always advocated coexistence.

The Arab mother claims her daughter was justified in murdering innocent civilians because of the "occupation" and the humiliation they suffer. Yet who is at fault for the situation she is in? Israelis have made numerous overtures & offers for peace that have been consistently rejected by the PA.

The palestinians are not the only people who want their own state. So do the Kurds, Tibetans, Basque & Chechens just to name a few. The Arabs believe terrorism is the way to achieve this & drive the Jews into the sea.
