I recommend also to those who would like to try and comprehend with the suicide bombers phenomenon. It is a MUST!
An important and timely look behind the all-too-frequent headlines, "Suicide Killers" is not to be missed.
Also, I noticed some omissions in the English subtitles over Arabic interviews. For examples, one particularly young prisoner talks about his expectation of meeting the past prophets, saints and marrying 70+ virgins after he becomes a martyr. The subtitle omits the prophets and saints. There seems to be many other incorrect translations. One still gets the message, though.
Finally, Pierre Rehov goes into the prisons and interviews the suicide bombers who were apprehended before they were able to complete their mission. Finally, the world can hear first hand the motives behind the suicide bombings. But the world will only hear if they care enough to listen.
Once the world listens, it will know how to act... if it is not too late.
For me, the most powerful parts of the film were the interviews with families who were proud of the "martyrs" in their family. To me, it demonstrated the insanity of the idea of suicide missions (not that I really needed that to be reinforced) while also showing the very real human suffering experienced by many of these people.
I'm sure many people will come away from this film with the feeling that we need to redouble our efforts to kill all Muslims before they can become terrorists and, in a way, I can see how they might feel that way, though I strongly and vehemently disagree. The people in this film are very determined and absolutely convinced that what they are doing is good and justified and convincing them otherwise is a very daunting task. However, we need to remember that the majority of Muslims do not think this way (regardless of what many people would lead us to believe) and, indeed, several Muslims and Palestinians interviewed for the film condemn the practice of suicide bombing. For me, the film just reaffirmed for me that we absolutely need to find a better way to address the rift between Muslim cultures and western civilization other than an endless, continuous cycle of violence.Read more ›
One of the Palestinians interviewed in the video gives all kinds of excuses about their youth lacking a father figure and blaming Israel for it, but that is pure bull. Various factions i.e. Al Fatah and Hamas have even tried to kill each other..nice father figure conflict...of course in everything Israel is at fault. The reality shown in the video is pretty clear. Israel is a democracy with the level of freedom that is despised by those in power across the border. It also does a good job showing how women fare in the Palestinian areas when compared to Israel.
