    I accidentally ran across this film last night (08/18/2014). I thought: I’ll watch it for a few minutes and move on to a movie. Wrong. I was glued to the screen for the entire film. We don’t often get a personal view of the Palestinian predicament. As an American Boomer, we have only been told the story from the point of view of Israel. Now, I really have to think again about this Middle East situation. One more thing: when I listened to Abu, I heard the same voice as the ones crying in Ferguson, MO, South Central L.A., and the South Side of Chicago.

    For many many years people have asked me “Why do Palestinians blow themselves up???? What makes someone become a suicide bomber?” I’ve often said, “You can live 40 days without food, 5 without water, 3 or 4 minutes without air, but you can’t live 15 seconds without a drop of hope!” This very sobering documentary illustrates that statement perfectly. When you remove hope you put death into the equation. When will the world wake up to this somber reality and give Palestinians and all the other oppressed and discarded people a reason to hope, therefore a reason to live and let live.

    That said, I think one of the best things about this documentary was the intimate view it gave of the high value Palestinians put on family life and lifelong, friendships of great depth. When you go inside someone’s home, heart, and thoughts, you can no longer deny their humanity. The love and warmth between these men, some friends, some family, was a very accurate, and touching depiction.

    We are all much more alike than we are different. We all want a better future for their children, honest work, a comfortable home, safety, laughter, and a sense of belonging.

    Thank you for this wonderful presentation. I hope it changes hearts and minds.
