The human face of conflict. war, political threat, Intifada, struggle for the good life, women and their loved ones searching for the "good life" under war. Israel, the Israel Palestinian conflict.
For years now, Hamas has been building sophisticated underground terror tunnels beneath Israel. It has invested millions of dollars in rockets and war equipment. Why is no one asking why they--or the Palestinians themselves, for that matter-- have never built shelters to protect their women and children? The Israelis are safer than the Palestinians because they look after themselves, because Israeli leaders protect their citizens-both Arabs and Jews. Israel is at war to protect its civilians from enemy rockets--and, now, to rid itself of the treacherous terror tunnels.This is war, not social work. We don't want to kill Palestinians, we are devastated at the loss of innocent lives. It is the job of the Hamas and the PA to protect the people of Gaza by constructing shelters for its civilians, by stopping their attacks on Israel, and allowing Israel to exist. Palestinians: start demanding more of your leaders. It is they who should be protecting you!
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.
