Posted by nakba60la on January 22, 2008

This Thursday, January 24th , Students for Justice in Palestine will be screening Occupation 101. The screening will take place in Von Kleinsmid Center (VKC) 256 at 6 pm. Papa Cristo’s Restaurant will be provided for dinner. Following the screening we will have a discussion.

Below is a description of the film from Wikipedia. 

Occupation 101: Voice of the Silenced Majority is a 2006 documentary on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict directed by Sufyan Omeish and Abdallah Omeish, and narrated by If Americans Knew founder Alison Weir. The film discusses events from the rise of Zionism to the Second Intifada and Israel’s unilateral disengagement plan, and presents its case through dozens of interviews. It questions the nature of Israeli-American relations. Specifically, it questions the Israeli military occupation of the West Bank and Gaza, and whether Americans should help pay for it. Occupation 101 includes interviews with mostly American and Israeli scholars, religious leaders, humanitarian workers, and NGO’s critical of the injustices and human rights abuses that stem from Israeli policy in the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza Strip.
