In The Law in These Parts, acclaimed Israeli filmmaker Ra’anan Alexandrowicz has pulled off a tour-de-force examination of the system of military administration used by Israel since the Six Day War of 1967 — featuring the system’s leading creators. In a series of thoughtful and candid interviews, Israeli judges, prosecutors and legal advisers, who helped devise the occupation’s legal framework, paint a complex picture of the Middle East conflict and the balance among political interests, security and human rights that has come with it. Winner, World Cinema Jury Prize: Documentary, 2012 Sundance Film Festival.

    This documentary opened up a set of facts that we never really hear. Now I get it. I have always wondered how such moral people as the Jews surely are can never seem to see the reality of what the occupation of Palestine is doing to the state of Israel itself. Now I see that they can justify almost any action by saying that it is all legal. This film gave me a look at how the Zionist see things and can kid themselves into almost any action by papering it over with laws. How wrong it is for military judges to rule on cases brought to them by the military itself.–another case of the fox guarding the hen house. Were those Palestinians brought before them given lawyers to defend them? And they claim this is justice?

    Thank you for bringing this to the American public.
