A film made in a democracy that shows it is not a democracy
13 October 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Very absorbing and forces one to listen.

All the following are demonstrated by this film:

The history of Israel since the 1967 six-day war is narrated. There were increasing Orwellian distortions of law.

In Israel there is one law for Israel proper and another for the occupied territories.

The occupied territories were allowed to be settled by playing with words in the Israeli Supreme Court. Israelis living in the occupied territories are given preferential treatment over non-Israelis. In other words, with the full support of the Israeli legislature, Palestinian land in the Occupied Territories was stolen.

The Israeli military uses its justice to rule the Occupied Territories. It changes the terms of justice at a whim.

Palestinians have been tortured with the knowledge of the Israeli legislature.
