“The fate and struggle of the Palestinians,” says Pilger, “are not just critical
to the overdue recognition of their basic human rights, but are also central to
whether the region, and the wider world, are plunged into war. Israel is now
one of the biggest military powers in the world. While nothing changes, the
dangers become greater. This is a film about a nation of people,
traumatized, humiliated and yet resilient. In trying to liberate less than a
quarter of historic Palestine, they have had no army, no air force, and no
powerful friends, and have fought back with slingshots and now with the
terrorism of the suicide bombers.”

In a series of extraordinary interviews with both Palestinians and Israelis,
John Pilger weaves together the issue of Palestine. He speaks to the
families of suicide bombers and their victims; he sees the humiliation of
Palestinians imposed on them at myriad checkpoints and with a permit
system not dissimilar to apartheid South Africa’s infamous pass laws. He
goes into the refugee camps and meets children who, he says, “no longer
dream like other children, or if they do, it is about death.”

Continually asking for the solution, John Pilger says it is time to bring
justice, as well as peace, to Palestine.
