While shooting our "Unmasking Israeli Settlers" series in Judea and Samaria (the West Bank). One of the things that really stood out was the insane levels of wealth in the Palestinian territory. We saw palaces everywhere, not just in Ramallah, but in tiny villages scattered across the land. We tried to find the apartheid roads and instead I found Israeli roads in the West Bank that were overflowing with Palestinian cars, stupidly beautiful Palestinian cars. In this episode we share some of the wealth we witnessed driving around Palestinian areas. We are not for a second suggesting that all Palestinians live at this level of opulence, far from it, but the perception that most people have of this area is categorically wrong.

The Israeli army outposts on Mount Hermon, the highest peak in the country, are of critical strategic importance, especially these days, as a number of hostile threats converge here from different directions. The mountain, which sits at the northeastern tip of the country, has a history of military conflict.

The Center for Near East Policy Research produced it's latest film shot on location on the Gaza border in the summer of 2018, showing how UNRWA's dangerous 'right of return' policy is the ideological foundation with which the next generation of children are brainwashed to believe.This film is one of many produced with the intention of shining a light on the plight of the Palestinian refugees and their children, refugees unto the 3rd and 4th generation, who are used as cannon fodder in the greater Arab-Israeli wars.

The Fatah-led Palestinian Authority in the West Bank and Hamas authorities in Gaza routinely arrest and torture peaceful critics and opponents, Human Rights Watch said in a report released today. As the Palestinian Authority-Hamas feud has deepened, each has targeted the other’s supporters. The 145-page report, “Two Authorities, One Way, Zero Dissent,” evaluates patterns of arrest and detention conditions in the West Bank and Gaza Strip 25 years after the Oslo Accords granted Palestinians a degree of self-rule over these areas, and more than a decade after Hamas seized effective control over the Gaza Strip. Human Rights Watch detailed more than two dozen cases of people detained for no clear reason beyond writing a critical article or Facebook post or belonging to the wrong student group or political movement.

Since taking over Gaza by force in 2007, Hamas has done nothing to help the people of Gaza, and chose to devote its resources to encouraging violence and terrorism, all aimed at destroying Israel, instead of building hospitals or investing in better education for the people of Gaza.
