How tragic that people have to wage war against their own in their desire for democracy and a better future for themselves and their children. How tragic that this struggle is likely to pit them against the threat of the Middle East, with no end in sight. As cynical as this sounds, we are used to these conditions when they involve the Israel-Arab conflict. It is when we see it in the context of peace-seeking Arabs fighting their countrymen in their desperate search for the "good life" that we recognize the pity of it all.
Israela: secrets, lies, and alienation. Heroism. Arabs saving Jews and Jews healing Arabs in Israel. Israela: An eternal struggle for peace. Three women and their loved ones seeking the "good life" under war. The complex social structure of Israel, tradition, history, war, Intifada, and love.
