With a comparison between apartheid South Africa and the Israel/Palestine conflict, this doc traces the future of one conflict from the past of another. Weaving the history of apartheid into the complex issues facing Israelis and Palestinians, it highlights the frighteningly similar laws and tools used by Israel and apartheid-era South Africa. It’s a dark picture of the present but offers hope based on the peace that South Africa eventually found.

    Excellent video, really hopeful and uplifting message by the end. It is possible to end Apartheid, great motivation from the ANC speakers who spoke of the hope of unification.

      Yes it was hard to watch at times but it really shines a light on the suffering inflicted on the Palestinian people. I’d love to see a peaceful solution in my lifetime. Ideally a shared state welcoming of everyone similar to SA and Northern Ireland.

        I really liked how the ANC speakers didn’t focus on blame, but focused on the path forward. That kind of hope and optimism is really refreshing in today’s discourse.

        And they’re clearly not pie in the sky wishful thinkers either, since they already done it and live through it and are speaking of personal experiences.

    Summary

    -🌍 The land of Israel and Palestine is considered holy by Islam, Christianity, and Judaism.

    Highlights

    • 🙏 Millions of people visit Israel and Palestine each year to pray for peace and prosperity.
    • 🌍 The region is a major center of conflict, with Jewish Israelis focused on protecting their homeland and Palestinians resisting decades of colonialism, expulsion, occupation, and apartheid.
    • 🇿🇦 The term “apartheid” originated in South Africa, but it is now used to describe the Israeli form of separation and domination.
    • 🗺️ Palestinians are divided into three main groups: refugees, Israeli citizens, and those living in the occupied territories.
    • 🏘️ Jewish-only settlements have been built in the occupied territories, illegally under international law.
    • ⚖️ Palestinians live under Israeli military law, while Jewish settlers live under Israeli civil law, resulting in separate and unequal treatment.
    • 🚧 Movement restrictions, checkpoints, and physical barriers further limit Palestinians’ freedom of movement and subject them to abuse and humiliation.
