This is one of the best, balanced and objective documentaries I've yet seen on the crisis in the Middle East. It confirms accusations made in another documentary "Enemy Image" which showed how US Media is controlled by external sources, denying citizens of the US a truly honest picture of world events.
I imagine Zionists and hard line Jews will not be enamoured of this documentary, which points out, fairly, exactly where the blame lies for much of what is going on, and has gone before. They will no doubt brand the many Jewish persons providing comment in this documentary as "self-hating" Jews or worse.
That aside, this is a documentary which has opened my eyes to a number of issues I was quite ignorant of or had swallowed the manipulated US Media's reporting on.
This documentary should be compulsory viewing to all school children to bring some balance into the Middle East conflict equation.
Honesty in reporting is not yet dead, thankfully. Just seems that way in the US.
This is a must see documentary, an essential for anyone who is interrested in knowing about the Israeli Palestinian issues. What this production offers is information and facts that will never be shown on our corporate media outlets; the brutal Israeli military occupation of the Palestinian people that has lasted for almost 4 decades and is still going in full force, with the help of the US who supports the occupation by providing financial, military and intelligence.
You want to know the truth, see this.

This is a must see for anyone that is interested in understanding the conflict and the reasons for its continuance.
Even during the most recent lebanon-Isreal war, It was distressing to see the one-sidedness of the coverage of the crisis in the media. Even respectable outlets like NPR did not do a good job of portraying the suffering of the people and the roots of the conflict. This documentary does an excellent job
of conveying how news is twisted and biased in the US. You can also see clearly why the mass US population only sympathises with Isreal. When you dont see the other side of the story ever, its easy to turn a blind eye to their plight.
Everyone claims the cause is all the 'Islamic-Terrorists' or the jihadists. Why does not anyone question what causes an entire nation to become jihadists and to live in such hatred ?
There is only one answer -- HOPELESSNESS. When you deprive human kind of hope and de-humanize an entire population, violence unfortunately will seem to be the only alternative
Highly recommend this for anyone trying to understand the conflict and US foreigh policy and how big corporations and big media control what and how we think about world issues.
