Hebron is the largest city in the middle of the occupied West Bank, 30 kilometers south of Jerusalem. Hebron is famous as a holy city, a place of pilgrimage for the Jews, Christians and Muslims because Abraham, the forefather of the three most important monotheistic religions, is buried there. Today Hebron is a city of violence and hate.Written by

I saw this film at the Lincoln Center Film Festival yesterday and loved learning about this important situation in the Middle East. Even though I visited Israel for the first time last year I heard nothing about this part of the relationship between Israel and Gaza.But for the last year through films,TV and news I realized it is the worse situation and causing so much animosity throughout the Middle East. I am sure in the near future there might be a "Spring Awakening" in Gaza. Israel is so wrong and this picture shows you all the reasons to draw that conclusion.I am sure if there were peaceful demonstrations the Israelis would act like Syrians. I am afraid in Pro pro New York and US this film will never get distributed. But all American Jews,other than the Ultra Orthodox, should see this film, maybe some minds will be changed.
The film makers spoke after the film and I think they are better documentary makers than speakers. One of the questions asked them if they were Jewish and where they were from and Stephen Nantanson had a problem telling the audience if he was Jewish.I thought it was a relevant question to ask of a writer of a somewhat religious movie. They did not answer the other questions very well to my mind but that did not make me not like the film.
Please search for this film either on TV or the web or other film festivals as it is a must for every knowledgeable person.
