The Iron Wall — History Of Israeli Oppression Against Palestinians

June 5, 2010: A Film By Mohammed Alatar / Released In 2006

In 1923 Vladimir Jabotinsky, leading intellectual of the Zionist movement and father of the right wing of that movement, wrote:

“Zionist colonization must either stop, or else proceed regardless of the native population. Which means that it can proceed and develop only under the protection of a power that is independent of the native population – behind an IRON WALL, which the native population cannot breach.”

From that day these words became the official and unspoken policy of the Zionist movement and later the state of Israel. Settlements were used from the beginning to create a Zionist foothold in Palestine.

After 1967 and the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza, the aim of the settlement movement became clear – create facts on the ground and make the creation of a Palestinian state impossible. Thirty nine years of occupation and the policy started showing results. There are now more than 200 settlements and outposts scattered throughout the West Bank blocking the geographic possibility of a contiguous Palestinian territory.

The Iron Wall documentary exposes this phenomenon and follows the timeline, size, population of the settlements, and its impact on the peace process. This film also touches on the latest project to make the settlements a permanent fact on the ground; the wall that Israel is building in the West Bank and its impact on the Palestinian people.

Settlements and related infrastructures are impacting every aspect of life for all Palestinians from land confiscation, theft of natural resources, confiscation of the basic human rights, creation of an apartheid-like system, to the devastating impact in regards to the future of the region and the prospect of the peace process.

Palestinians and Israelis began the peace process based on a very simple principle, land for peace. Settlements destroy that principle and create a land with no peace.

The Tonka Report Editor’s Note: This documentary is in response to the following comment posted on the article found at the link below the aforementioned comment in question

“I don’t get it. Aren’t these the same people who danced in the streets with joy on 9/11? Why doesn’t Egypt or some other Arab country take the Palestinians in and make them citizens. A population transfer would be the easiest and most humane solution.

By the way, why is there no international outrage of the Muslim persecution of Christians. Turkey, Sudan, Iraq, and Egypt for example…….”

This is not a chastisement. On the contrary, in light of the current events that have been unfolding in Gaza, this is a rather apropos time to post this very important documentary in order to shed light on the Zionist agenda and their relentless human rights violations and genocide perpetrated against the Palestinians… – SJH
