Israel vs Israel
To many of their fellow Israelis, they are traitors. They are attacked, arrested and demonised. Yet Israelis like Yehuda Shaul, leader of ’Breaking the Silence’ and Jonathan Pollack from ’Anarchists Against the Wall’ continue to struggle for a more peaceful Middle East. They believe that they can save their state by putting an end to the military occupation. But the Israeli peace movement has lost momentum in recent years. There is widespread apathy in Israel against ending the Occupation, especially after the withdrawal from Gaza. ’Israel vs Israel’ takes a fresh look at one of the leading tensions in Israeli society.
