A thought-provoking and powerful documentary film on the current and historical root causes of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Unlike any other film ever produced on the conflict — ‘Occupation 101′ presents a comprehensive analysis of the facts and hidden truths surrounding the never ending controversy and dispels many of its long-perceived myths and misconceptions.

The film also details life under Israeli military rule, the role of the United States in the conflict, and the major obstacles that stand in the way of a lasting and viable peace. The roots of the conflict are explained through first-hand on-the-ground experiences from leading Middle East scholars, peace activists, journalists, religious leaders and humanitarian workers whose voices have too often been suppressed in American media outlets.

The film covers a wide range of topics — which include — the first wave of Jewish immigration from Europe in the 1880′s, the 1920 tensions, the 1948 war, the 1967 war, the first Intifada of 1987, the Oslo Peace Process, Settlement expansion, the role of the United States Government, the second Intifada of 2000, the separation barrier and the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza, as well as many heart wrenching testimonials from victims of this tragedy.

    Oh my gosh… this is such a good site. Thank you. Finally, I have a place to send people that have no idea with what’s really going on. Sharing the truth this way rids the fluff one can encounter on other sites, like exagerrations, etc.

    Thanks again

    I agree Terry. This is the best site on the planet. I came here before it went offline over the last few months and have waited every second until it came back. It has high-quality, non-Google reliant information that can be found no where else in the world in one collection. On every site I go to I recommend this site. From now on….type http://www.documentarywire.com on your blogs.

  • Has anyone considered that there is no solution to the middle-east problem? This area has its history well documented in the Bible, the Torah and the Koran. A land that has known only conflict for four thousand years. Does that not tell us something? God himself designated that land to a people we know as the Jews, which they took under God’s direction through Moses, then Joshua, and virtually wiped out seven different nations of people as God directed. Ethnic cleansing we would call it today. A land that has only known hostility, even God sending his son to be born there suffered a violent death. God, Moses, Joshua and Jesus christ only experienced grief and failure in bringing peace to that “Land of Promise.” But have hope, the international community have sent a “peace envoy” to sort it all out, they call him Tony Blair?? DOES MAN EVER LEARN, APPARENTLY NOT. All this debating about this or that remedy will not change anything The worlds problems are escalating out of control, people will become more and more concerned with problems on their own doorstep as global meltdown affects us all. The fighting will not only be in middle east, but in your street, my street, your town, my town, your city, my city The cancer of human greed, racism,fanaticism and terrorism has now spread throughout the whole planet making it incurable.The ORIGIN of that cancer which has spread across the world is THE MIDDLE EAST.Its history is shameful to consider, that piece of real estate known as Israel is the most bloodstained piece of land on the planet, and they have THE NERVE TO CALL IT THE “HOLY LAND.” People need to stop living in denial and wake up to reality. To give you a taste of reality consider this, the history of man is war, war, and more war, leading to world war one, world war two, and I say world war three is just ahead. Now who is living in denial, are you?

  • well done doc,its just too bad a people so closely related cant get it together. just like vietnam or any other conflict for that matter, its always started with a LIE and meant to be waged not won, war is big money if your born into the right family. id be the first to cast my defensive arms to the waters if i could ………but i wont because there are some nasty people out there that mean to do harm to good people. never let a person with dubious intentions impinge on your free will. we freely give and are tricked into giving these factions the very power that is used to control and exploit us. i look forward to the day we can make that jump from h. sapien to h. galacticus, be excellent to each other!
