Occupation 101

Home >> Military & War 5.82K views 16 comments


A thought-provoking and powerful documentary film on the current and historical root causes of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Unlike any other film ever produced on the conflict -- 'Occupation 101' presents a comprehensive analysis of the facts and hidden truths surrounding the never ending controversy and dispels many of its long-perceived myths and misconceptions. The film also details life under Israeli military rule, the role of the United States in the conflict, and the major obstacles that stand in the way of a lasting and viable peace. The roots of the conflict are explained through first-hand on-the-ground experiences from leading Middle East scholars, peace activists, journalists, religious leaders and humanitarian workers whose voices have too often been suppressed in American media outlets. The film covers a wide range of topics -- which include -- the first wave of Jewish immigration from Europe in the 1880's, the 1920 tensions, the 1948 war, the 1967 war, the first Intifada of 1987, the Oslo Peace Process, Settlement expansion, the role of the United States Government, the second Intifada of 2000, the separation barrier and the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza, as well as many heart wrenching testimonials from victims of this tragedy.

    I saw this movie and have a firm opinion. The second intifada was
    ignited by fake and fraudulent footage on killing of Mahamad
    Drury by Israel soldier created by France TV. later analysis clearly
    showed that the France TV Channel intentionally fabricated the footage
    an the boy was killed by palestinian sniper. Fabrication of fake scenes
    to portrait Israel aggressor is a wide accepted practice. Western
    journalists and operators have been done this for decades; in the
    second intifada they had agreement with Arafat to fabricate anti-Israel
    news; in Lebanon war the worked for Hezbollar; in Gaza war - for Hamas.
    This is one more fabricated "reality" that fully contradict to the

    You know why we dont talk to Israeli's? Becuase they have learned over these last years that they can just lie about the scale of their crimes and get away with it.

    Isreal is an ILLEGAL state, based on a monotheistic religion, give me a break. Free palestine, and let Isreal burn..... save the children though...

    Abbabdon needs to study his history and spiritual. The occupants of modern day Israel are not the Israel spoken of by God. The state is, and some of the inhabitants are. But most of the people are not.Do you think God would want this for his children? These Zionist forces are doing what the Nazis did. I believe these people perpetrating these atrocities on the Palestinian people are not God's children. They are their god's children.

    Has anyone thought to question these so-called "documentaries"? Maybe some of you knuckleheads should talk to Israelis about Israel and not fall for the garbage the hate-mongers at this site have posted here.

    well done doc,its just too bad a people so closely related cant get it together. just like vietnam or any other conflict for that matter, its always started with a LIE and meant to be waged not won, war is big money if your born into the right family. id be the first to cast my defensive arms to the waters if i could .........but i wont because there are some nasty people out there that mean to do harm to good people. never let a person with dubious intentions impinge on your free will. we freely give and are tricked into giving these factions the very power that is used to control and exploit us. i look forward to the day we can make that jump from h. sapien to h. galacticus, be excellent to each other!

    Has anyone considered that there is no solution to the middle-east problem? This area has its history well documented in the Bible, the Torah and the Koran. A land that has known only conflict for four thousand years. Does that not tell us something? God himself designated that land to a people we know as the Jews, which they took under God's direction through Moses, then Joshua, and virtually wiped out seven different nations of people as God directed. Ethnic cleansing we would call it today. A land that has only known hostility, even God sending his son to be born there suffered a violent death. God, Moses, Joshua and Jesus christ only experienced grief and failure in bringing peace to that "Land of Promise." But have hope, the international community have sent a "peace envoy" to sort it all out, they call him Tony Blair?? DOES MAN EVER LEARN, APPARENTLY NOT. All this debating about this or that remedy will not change anything The worlds problems are escalating out of control, people will become more and more concerned with problems on their own doorstep as global meltdown affects us all. The fighting will not only be in middle east, but in your street, my street, your town, my town, your city, my city The cancer of human greed, racism,fanaticism and terrorism has now spread throughout the whole planet making it incurable.The ORIGIN of that cancer which has spread across the world is THE MIDDLE EAST.Its history is shameful to consider, that piece of real estate known as Israel is the most bloodstained piece of land on the planet, and they have THE NERVE TO CALL IT THE "HOLY LAND." People need to stop living in denial and wake up to reality. To give you a taste of reality consider this, the history of man is war, war, and more war, leading to world war one, world war two, and I say world war three is just ahead. Now who is living in denial, are you?

    The NAZIs destroyed themselves and so will Israel, they learned a lot from the nazis and its all bad, they are not doing Gods work they are doing the devils work. the world must be corrupt to allow this, God forgive us.

    I agree Terry. This is the best site on the planet. I came here before it went offline over the last few months and have waited every second until it came back. It has high-quality, non-Google reliant information that can be found no where else in the world in one collection. On every site I go to I recommend this site. From now on....type www.documentarywire.com on your blogs.

  • Terry

    Oh my gosh... this is such a good site. Thank you. Finally, I have a place to send people that have no idea with what's really going on. Sharing the truth this way rids the fluff one can encounter on other sites, like exagerrations, etc.

    Thanks again
