Hello there.. I'm grand so.
Yes complicated indeed, it's why I think this documentary goes in some way of explaining part of the situation, illegal settlements and house demolitions are any every day fact of life there in occupied Palestine... peace

yes, it's been going on for ages and I think everybody knows it but you know Dino against a big power we can do nothing, you sadly have experienced too, just like me in my origin country.

Yes I have experienced it, but if we all sit around saying "We can do nothing" then nothing will be done.. Those days were hard and I always remember this quote when I think of them...

"In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends."
Martin Luther King, Jr.

So highlighting a bit of the situation for me is just speaking up for those without a voice, as I see it.

The Zionists indeed learnt well from the Nazis. So well that it seems that their morally repugnant treatment of the Palestinians, and their attempts to destroy Palestinian society within Israel and the occupied territories, reveals them as basically Nazis with beards and black hats.
