The film chronicles Israel's 43-year military legal system in the Occupied Palestinian Territories of the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The story unfolds through interviews with the architects of this legal system juxtaposed with historical footage showing the enactment of these laws upon the Palestinian population.Written by
A film made in a democracy that shows it is not a democracy
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.
