Image and reality of the Israel-Palestine conflict (1h 45 min.):
Synopsis: "Mr. Finkelstein speaks about his book, Image and Reality of the Israel-Palestine Conflict; and argues that while different moral conclusions can be reached, the facts themselves are indisputable. He says that the Holocaust and the charge of anti-Semitism are widely used to deflect criticism of Israeli policies towards the Palestinians. He also discusses the views of a number of other scholars including Joan Peters and Benny Morris. A question and answer period follows." Finkelstein argues that there is a scholarly consensus that the Palestinians were ethnically cleansed in 1948 and that the Holocaust and the charge of anti-Semitism are widely used to deflect criticism of Israeli policies towards the Palestinians. http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/181037-1
Palestine is still the issue (50 min.):
Synopsis: "John Pilger travels to Israel and the West Bank of Jordan and Gaza to ask why the Palestinians are still refugees in their own land. In a series of interviews with both Palestinians and Israelis, he explores the issue of Palestine and presents the Palestinians as a nation of people, traumatized, humiliated and yet resilient. He asks for a solution that will bring justice and peace to Palestine." In one footage the video shows Israeli soldiers deliberately breaking the bones of Palestinian youths during the Palestinian intifada (of 1987-1993) against Israeli occupation.
The iron wall to all people of the Holy Land (58 min.):
Synopsis: "A documentary look at Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank territories and their history, and at how Israel's practice of promoting settlements deviates from peace accords and complicates the establishment of a Palestinian state. Includes interviews with prominent Israeli and Palestinian peace activists and political analysts, including Jeff Halper, Akiva Eldar, Hind Khoury, Ghassan Al-Khatib, and others. Also includes interviews with Israeli settlers and soldiers, and Palestinian farmers." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFBamQ2aONA
