Movies are a great way to learn about Palestine - and, more important, to educate family, friends, and neighbors. Fortunately, there are scores of great films about the plight of the Palestinians and its historical roots - if the quality and quantity...

The welcome page on this new site starts with the following statement:

The Holocaust will be understood not so much for the number of victims
as for the magnitude of the silence. And what obsesses me most is the repetition of silence.

Jacobo Timerman, quoted in Judith Herman’s Trauma and Recovery

Jacobo Timerman, the respected Zionist author of these lines, and author of Prisoner Without A Name, Cell Without a Number (1981), was known for not having stayed silent in the face of human debasement and humiliation in his adopted country of Argentina. Tortured and imprisoned, he eventually managed to migrate to Israel. Remaining true to his daring and outspoken ways, he did not stay silent about injustices he witnessed here. In The Longest War: Israel's Invasion of Lebanon (1982) he wrote: ‘And I'm angry, too, with us, with the Israelis who by exploiting, oppressing, and victimizing them [the Palestinians] made the Jewish people lose their moral tradition, their proper place in history.’


Carrie, thanks .... this new site will be very valuable to those sharing Timerman's principles

I think this is an interesting project, both for those directly involved in the conflicts, and others, like myself who would like to know more about the history and culture.

A lot of my comments have disappeared overnight. This is what I wrote yesterday:

Thanks for sharing, Carrie. I'm sure to return to the site often in the future. I like it's philosophy and the fact that it is brought about not by Palestinians nor Israeli, but by two relatively impartial scholars, working at universities in Scotland and Denmark. They write:
"We particularly cherish the work of those transnational Jewish filmmakers who do not want to cave in to nationalist hysteria, and who recognize that Israel is a multicultural society that can only survive if it begins seeing itself as such."
That's a good place to start from.
