The camera captures the atmosphere of the streets. Walls are covered with posters of militants and those killed in the conflict. When the sun sets, there's an unearthly scene as the street vendors disappear and then "paramilitaries come out at night using the dead to recruit more militants." Of course, those recruited are usually young males--some still in childhood. In one horrific scene, Saira Shah--also the film's narrator--is brave enough to interview some hooded Palestinian paramilitaries who are grooming Ahmed, a young boy to join their ranks. The paramilitaries play games with the boy and the games slide into teaching him how to hold a rocket grenade launcher. When Shah asks if it is moral to recruit young children to be terrorists, the hooded paramilitary member strokes the boy's head and chillingly responds, "don't worry about responsibility, sister, we're men, when we say goodbye to Ahmed, there are 1000s more like him."
The film shows quite clearly that children on the streets of Palestine are well aware of imminent death and that their lives are irrevocably altered by their day-to-day existence--it is common for children to write letters to their families in case they are killed.Read more ›
The conflicts in Gaza is a problem for us to solve.
We are all humans, not the watchers.
This is a movie for awake all the people who living in the peace,no body colud miss it.
The film focuses primarily on two twelve-year-olds, Mohammed and Ahmed (and secondarily on a 16-year-old girl, Najla). The dreams and hopes of these boys do not seem all that different from those of our own kids, but Palestinian youngsters also know that they will have no chance of fulfilling those dreams without an end to the occupation. So they dedicate themselves to it, dealing with their considerable fear by drawing strength from their Islamic faith and their strong bond of friendship with each other, preparing themselves for the future and jihad. But given the astonishing number of Palestinian children already slaughtered by Israeli troops, the boys find it even more crucial to cleave to their community's conviction that death by occupation does not create victims but rather, martyrs to the heroic cause of Palestinian liberation. How else to shore up the battered psyche against the gratuitous and unpredictable acts of violence perpetrated against them?
The setting of this film is the desolate refugee camp at Rafah, where we get a brief glimpse of the dark side of the Palestinian resistance -- one that is sure to please a Zionist or otherwise Islamophobic audience.Read more ›
The reason for why I think there won't have peace in next 60-year is, those Palestinian children are hate Israeli. If they get a chance to kill any Israeli, they will do it even though it will take their life. Life for them is to be a hero in their land. And the main thing is they're only 12-15 years old, that means they will have the same opinion for next 60 years. and the worst thing is they will teach their children to think like them. So on and so on, how could these two countries have a peace in the next 60 years?
Right now, the only thing I can do is wish. Wish there will be a peace in the future.
