Great film. Thanks for showing the struggle how it really is. Joshua Richeson's comment about Israel is unnecessary and hinders the real message. The Jewish people are terrified about anti-semitism, still, and they have every right to be. It's even worse when it comes from non-Jewish Americans who are 'supposed' to be neutral allies.
While I agree with Joshua Richeson's opening thought, his ending is a bit hyperbolic. One can understand Israel's need to defend itself (it has been doing so since it became a nation), but its overreaching on the path of the separation wall invited a much more sane and effective tactic on the part of the Palestinians in Budrus. Nicely done, Julia!
Strong interesting doc about peaceful Palestinian protesting in the village Budrus. I heard about it from a Ted talk with filmmaker Julia Bacha which you can find here: http://www.ted.com/talks/julia_bacha.html. Only issue is a few one sided points (which continue to misrepresent actions of the Israeli govt). I completely admit my bias as I'm a pro-Israel Jew (does NOT mean I support govt actions). 3.5/5
