Israel: The Battle for Jerusalem

Israel: Battle for Jerusalem, The

"Recommended. This program is well documented and highlights some serious issues such as disparity in economics, social services, and governance. In addition, one begins to understand the complexity of a city by looking at its geographic position and the intricate make-up of its population. Both sides of the arguments are well represented and organized. Also the program's technical qualities are more than adequate in all areas." -EMRO Review
"Recommended. This program examines the Israeli-Palestinian struggle in Jerusalem. The tone of the program is objective and the correspondent explains the conflicting claims to the city and its holy places." -School Library Journal
"Recommended. Introduces viewers to the complex situation in Jerusalem via a color-coder map; however, it's the human face behind the map that makes this documentary worth watching." -Video Librarian
This documentary delves behind the headlines to chronicle the daily battle over the city both Israelis and Palestinians passionately claim as their capital, Jerusalem. Here we meet the Schwartz family, Israeli settlers who have moved into the Muslim quarter of East Jerusalem, and the Khalaf family, Palestinians who since 1967 have been fighting for residency rights and access to health services - a serious issue, especially since their teen-age son, Yasser, has cancer. Mixed with ample historical archive, the program explores human tragedy on both sides. Produced by ABC Australia. 07/09DE JSCA 22 min.
