Like Many Palestinian families, the Amers live surrounded by the infamous West Bank Wall. Their daily lives are dominated by electrified fences, locks and a constant swarm of armed soldiers. Through sensitive lens we discover the private world of all

Very sad. What a terrible way to live and grow up. No wonder Israeli government and the occupation of Palestine is called apartheid.
This is truly dismal. How the Palestinians bear up under this forced isolation and oppressive, cruel and unnecessary ordeal, I do not know.
Children and families are, plainly, afflicted, in every possible way in their existence, every day. The suffering of Palestinians is inexcusable, as the Israeli policies that have caused all the suffering for the past 67 years - back to the beginning with the Nakba and displacement of the Palestinian people.
People should see this documentary!!!
I saw a film called "Lemon Tree" (an Eran Riklis film)based on real events, about the IDF destroying the livelihood of a Palestinian widow, and her fight to save her lemon grove - she was harassed and sought legally to save the family farm, through the Israeli court system, but the IDF still destroyed her trees and land. Under the guise and excuse of "security", Israel has been robbing Palestinians of their homes, lands and livelihood for decades, chipping away at their livelihoods, way of life and peace.
The children and families are under constant assault on their very right to exist, through Israeli control at every point, through denial of access, restrictions of vital necessities, and control of resources, essential to survival, like water.
In addition, "settlers" invade their farms and lands, damage them maliciously, uproot crops, and attack Palestinians in their homes and villages.

EVERY ISRAELI AND PRO ISRAEL JEW SHOULD SEE THIS DOCU-FILM.
EVERY AMERICAN SHOULD SEE IT, AND KNOW WHAT IS DONE BY ISRAEL WITH AMERICAN 'AID' AND TAX DOLLARS.
SHAME ON ISRAEL. SHAME ON THE U.S. SHAME ON JEWISH AND OTHER APOLOGISTS.
MAY THOSE THAT ARE PROTESTING WITHIN ISRAEL AND Internationally DECRY THE ISRAELI HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS AND END ALL AID. NOW!
FREE PALESTINE FROM ISRAELI TYRANNY.SPEAK OUT. CONDEMN ISRAEL'S ATROCITIES AND CONTACT YOUR REPRENTATIVES AND ADMIINISTRATIONS TO END ALL SUPPORT TO ISRAEL.
This is hell. Children are the victims,

Interesting film. It's very sad the way they had to live and the endless wait everyday for the soldiers to let them in/out.

Thanks Elderbery for the post , forwarding and giving a simple daily real suffering of one of the palestinian family .
It is due to the IDF occupation to Palestine since 65 years with the support of US,UK,Canada, EU in all aspects ( donation and Veto) , there support for settlements building and the segregation wall ... do not say they condemn that wall and settlements it is like blowing air in a ballon has a whole in it , nothing done practically on the ground.
Such support give the IDF the courage to continue in its crimes and violation.
IT IS THE TIME FOR UK to correct its Belfoure Declaration and promis mistake which is the real causee for such suffering to all ages of all the palestinian families .
A sick patient or a women with uterine contration and about to deliver in Ambullance dies before the openning of the gate or while waitting at any check point.
This happens on the eye of all the planet inhibitance .

Canada's Crime Minister is flying to Isreal to visit the new bird sanctuary named after him, and to be treated like royalty. Makes me sick. He does *not* speak for me ---- or many others. My Canada does not support apartheid.

Thank you my dear friend Abo for the forward , I found it very sad, very unjust and oh so wrong. To be forced to live like this must be a living hell and I applaud the Amer family for their bravery and determination in not giving up their home and refusing to move for why should they, My thoughts and prayers are always with you dear Abo and the Palestinian people. FREEDOM FOR ALL.! Thank you for the post Elderberry.

Interesting piece on Canadian PM's junket to Israel, bringing at least 208 others with him.

Exactly who is on the PM's junket to Israel and why - Independent Jewish Voices investigate:
