Please see this movie.

It's called 5 Broken Cameras and it's made by Emad Burnat, a Palestinian whose village was cut in half by the Israeli apartheid wall back in 2005. He had a camera at the time, so he started filming what was going on, as the village began a series of nonviolent protests in the face of the IDF's increasingly militant interventions. Inevitably, people get killed, and it ain't the soldiers with the guns and tanks who die. Whatever you may know or think you know about politics in the Middle East, please seek out this film and watch it.

There are clips on YouTube, along with interviews with the director and so on. Favorite YouTube comment: "Israel takes IRONY to a whole new level." That just about sums it up.

The movie will be available on Amazon on January 15, 2013.

It will also be available on Netflix.
