The subject matter of this documentary was the struggle of Palestinian children in the West Bank city of Hebron to get to school safely. They were regularly prevented from going to school by Israeli soldiers, and had resorted to scrabbling across the roofs of the old city as they were not allowed to use the ‘Israeli-only’ streets below. The only way to film their inevitable encounters with soldiers was to use a hidden camera.

Conrad Mc Gregor says:

Those who shout the loudest are heard fastest… the world has too many problems. Islam, Judaism, neither are helping as it all boils down to self seeking, self pity.

Ian Dowd says:

I am disliking The Israeli military and intelligence forces more and more . The government of Israel is acting like the german's did in the Second World War and before, surely you would think that the Israeli government would have a little bit more empathy towards the children and their mothers. The Israeli army and its soldiers act disgracefully toward the Arab children, if this was happening in a sovereign country it would cause uproar.


Israelis are Evil

I use to be one of those kids they took my school and turned it into a military camp and we had no school at all

Fenix says:

While the kikes treat the Pali's like this there'll never be peace in that god forsaken land.

Both sides are cursed and should be made to fight till the death and get it over with once and for all.

The IDF should try to kill all their enemies and LIKEWISE the Pali's should also try to exterminate ALL their enemies.

Learn anti-Semitism, bs. Those jews in Israel aren't semitic. They are mostly the descendants of khazar jews.

peace would be better for both sides.

Therese Fairchild says:

Im sure the Palestinian children feel exactly the same way as the Jewish children felt about the Nazis

Driss Green says:

Only brainwashed american neo-cons believe israelis are good people and are victims over there. When you have a system with a hotline on how to destroy childrens lives, that is pure evil. Just a small taste of their generosity and racial intolerance.
