2.5 out of 10 Death in Gaza
g p from Cork, 19 Jun 2009
The movie showed the story that doesn't sell western papers and screen time. There was nothing most people don't actually know but it was still shocking to confront the poverty and the utter commitment to overthrow the Israeli grip. Shocking to confront the careless use of lives by men who are sons, husbands, fathers. And one has to ask, why did he go out into the line of fire that night, in the dark, with trigger happy combatants all around him?

3.5 out of 10 The tragedy of war
Ian from Dublin, 16 Jun 2007
There havent been too many documentaries that im aware of made about the palestinian side of the story regarding the conflict in israel. This film focuses on the ordinary children of the conflict,the wannabe martyrs,the families they leave behind,the impact of suicide bombing,the reasons and ultimately the tragedy of all these factors

3 out of 10 Interesting documentary
laura from Dublin, 01 Dec 2009
The children in this are very well chosen. It is heartbreaking to think of how their future could be shaped when they are so vulnerable to the influence of more extreme people. An interesting perspective on this conflict, showing the devastating impact on communities trying to survive.

5 out of 10 very good
gerard from Dublin, 11 Dec 2007
This is a very good documentary and its frightening when you see eleven year old boys making grenades and willing to blow themselves up in order to become martyrs and kill israelis. Even the special features on this dvd are brilliant.

5 out of 10 Superb
Louis from Dublin, 26 Oct 2008
Brilliant film about the realities (sub-) life in Rafah, Gaza under Israeli hegemony. Hard-to-watch extras also a must see.

What's it about....
This poignant and powerful documentary takes a shocking, first-hand look at the culture of hate that permeates the West Bank and Gaza, and which continues to escalate the perennial violence pitting Palestinians against Israelis. Starting out in the city of Nablus (where as many as 80 per cent of suicide bombing plots are planned), Saira Shah and director James Miller ended up in the Gaza town of Rafah, one of the most dangerous cities in this volatile region where Israeli...
