Poignant snapshot of a harsh reality
21 October 2005 | by SysyphysSee all my reviews

One of the rare productions which shows the reality on the ground. Just because some viewers are so callous and biased against the oppressed & occupied people that they cannot relate with them does not mean that all that is said is BS.

Watch this documentary to see the other side of what the mainstream media exposes you to. Of course it will be difficult for the smugly ignorant to digest what has been shown. The suffering of the common Palestinians and their kids because of the oppressive policies of Israel has been shown through the perspective of children.

This kind of treatment meted out to occupied helpless Arabs by a people who themselves suffered terribly under Hitler makes you think what makes them forget their own suffering in the Holocaust when it comes to dealing with the Arabs.
