Palestine is Still the Issue – a video documentary by John Pilger

John Pilger a journalist has produced this video highlighting the Palestinian issue. John Pilger produced a video titled “Palestine Is Still The Issue” which has never been aired in 25 years due to the sensitive nature of it ‘being the voice for the Palestinians’, The video is definitely A MUST WATCH video and would request everyone to forward this as widely as possible, let no one be spared of an opportunity to see the truth

John Pilger starts the video with the following introduction

Twenty-five years ago, I made a film called Palestine Is Still The Issue. It was about a nation of people – the Palestinians – forced off their land and later subjected to a military occupation by Israel. An occupation condemned by the United Nations and almost every country in the world, including Britain. But Israel is backed by a very powerful friend, the United States. So in 25 years, if we’re to speak of the great injustice here, nothing has changed. What has changed is that the Palestinians have fought back.

Stateless and humiliated for so long, they’ve risen up against Israel’s huge military machine, although they themselves have no arm, no tanks, no American planes and gun ships or missiles. Some have committed desperate acts of terror, like suicide bombing. But for Palestinians, the overriding, routine terror, day after day, has been the ruthless control of almost every aspect of their lives, as if they live in an open prison. This film is about the Palestinians and a group of courageous Israelis united in the oldest human struggle – to be free.

    Its the America who speaks of Justice and who himself doesn’t know it’s meaning! There is sadness which has resided in the eyes of Palestinians and still they protest in hope to set their country free before their life ends…

    Israel need a Roosevelt and it can be in the Obama shape now,we have to watch what President Obama gives first statement.

    President-Elect Obama did not mind commenting on other issues but he has been ‘understandably’ quite on the massacre of Palestinians.

    We need not to hope anything good from him. There is no room for any fake optimism anymore.

    @Le Mystique,

    its as simple as keeping quiet on Palestininian
    holocaust and having his White house chief of Staff
    Rahm Emanuel a zionist Israeli Army officer. Unless
    American does get rid of the pest called Neoconnards
    there won’t be any progress in USA.

    I ask myself the question, does israel actually think that by butchering 800+ palestinians, they will attain peace and security?

    Israel will never have peace, not now, not ever, Palestinian people are stronger than ever and the world is on their side, we work tirelessly against Israel, and they will never have peace, never, every film you see underground and nameless, (being made every day with people's own money and resources) every piece of music, every bit of writing is what the Israelis will have to fight against, and tanks and IDF soldiers will be of no use whatsoever. Drone on Israel. Your time is up.
