Hebron: One City, Two Nations – Israel/Palestine

Uploaded on Aug 28, 2007

March 1996
From Hebron, two women talk about the tensions of living in a divided city. Ruth Hizmi, one of 400 Jewish settlers, moved to the West Bank 9 years ago. She believes that just being in her kitchen in Hebron is an act of faith. But on her way to work she gets spat on by Arab neighbours. Afifeh, a young Palestinian woman, lives on the ‘cease-fire line’ between the Jews and 100,000 Palestinians. From her cobbled wall, she overlooks a brand new playground built for Jewish children. Conflict in Hebron begins with the ancient Tomb of the Patriarchs. As the burial Place of Abraham, it holds great religious significance for both Jews and Muslims. Two years ago, a Jewish settler, Baruch Goldstein fired 119 bullets into a crowd of praying Muslims. Ever since worship for both religions has been strictly regulated by tense Israeli soldiers. Noam Arnon, spokesperson for the Jewish community, denounces recent Palestinian elections. He takes politicians to the street where there have been attacks on Jewish settlers. Ruth wants peace but she is passionately opposed to moving out of Hebron. Afifeh is simply resigned to the hard fact that Jews and Muslims can never live together in peace.

Please share this video with all those willing to watch with an open mind. As stated at the end of the documentary, please remember that this this documentary was put together by Jewish people within Israel. Please respect that and not label all Jews with the same brush, as i feel that its the modern day Zionists who are the real criminals and the biggest enemies of the State of Israel.
This video is also an eye opener for the Judeo-christians who are hell bent on supporting Israel at all costs..would Jesus stand for this? The bible talks of a spiritual israel, not this polical entitiy we have today. Israel has a right to exist in peace, but so does everyone else, most especially the palestinians. If they voted Hamas into power, then so be it. Just as the terrorist group Irgun in the 40’s and 50’s eventually became most of what is now the Likud Party in israel that has produced about 8 Israeli prime ministers and many prominent people. Yet today we have forgotten all that and are made to label Hamas as the main obstacle to peace. the fact is that its the Political powers in Israel who are the biggest obstacles to peace. Which in some way, affects us all

Secret Hebron: The School Run – 28 minute documentary – trailer

Uploaded on Apr 15, 2008

Palestinian children in Hebron regularly risk being attacked by Israeli soldiers as they try to go school.

Children in the old part of Hebron are kept under curfew for months at a time, making it impossible for them to go to class. However, instead of giving up on their right to an education, the children scrabble across the roofs to avoid soldiers. “Whenever I go to school it’s so scary. When we meet soldiers they force us back with tear gas or percussion grenades,” states 12 year old Islam. A local doctor reports treating children whose legs or hands have been broken by soldiers. The violence and disruption has a severe psychological impact on the children. Pass rates in Arabic fell from 71% to 38% between 2000 and 2001 and parents claim that the children are becoming more violent. With even young children now being treated as terrorists, the prospect of peace looks distant.
