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’s peoples.

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.

    This really pisses me off. Seeing those settlers running around with guns with smiles on their faces; the satisfaction they get out of ethnically cleansing Arabs is disgusting.

      what really pisses me off is idiots like you watching a docu like this and assume that this is what israel is and does
      why dont you type in ramallah lynch on google , or intifada
      find out what happens when the palestinians attack israel , they blow themselves up on busses , fire rockets into israel , stab , kidnap , any jew they can kill they try to
      and thats not to say i agree with the actions of these settlers because in israel they are a tiny minority who are on the outskirts of israeli society 
      the difference is that hamas , plo and other islamic fundamentalists groups are the complete mainstream in the palestinian terrirtory , and while this is true , they will never have their state. 
      if israels constitution said the erradication of all muslims , i dont think the world would be to happy with that
      yet hamas and fatah both have this for jews in their charters 
      and dont be so stupid as to think israel ethnicly clenses
      if it wanted to it would wipe the the palestinains off the map , not give them the temple mount, gaza !!!
      get your head out of your ass and read something

        you are a misinformed and, to be honest, stupid ignoramus. Israel IS enthically-cleansing the palestinian people from THEIR land. Israel is built on land stolen from arabs and given legitimacy by the UN because of european guilt and racism and some fundamentalist christian bullshit about the return of the jews to the holy land. 

         The “people” or scum (as they should be better known) that started zionism knew that the palestinian people would have to be eradicated from their own land for the jews to prosper there. 

        You should ask yourself why they are willing to kill themselves to kill jews?? because they are all mental?? i dont think so… its because they are living in a jail and their jailers are murdering, thieving scum. 
        “If it wanted to it would wipe palestinians off the map”… THIS IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING INFRONT OF YOU FUCKTARD! look at the maps of the west bank and israel and see how one grows  in the place of the other. FREE PALESTINE!!!!

    Land for Peace. Why should Israel give land when there is not only no peace, but ever more deadly attacks on civilians. The Palestinians elected a terrorist government with the officially stated goal of destroying “the illegal state of Israel.” Basically, not only do Hamas (and the Palestinians that elected them) not want to coexist with the Jews, they don’t even acknowledge the existence of Israel.

      And can you blame them? They were kicked off the home to make way for Israel.

      Right right, it’s all the fault of the Palestinians. The Arabs don’t want to coexist with the Jews, that’s the true problem. The genocidal project of Zionism is totally justified, we are all convinced.

  • WTF

    Around 24 minutes into the video they show Jewish fundamentalists throwing a molotov cocktail into a Palestinian home. You can see the house setting on fire and you can hear women and children screaming.

    Most of these Jews have no right to claim the holy land … Khazars NOT Hebrews …

  • Eyesontheworld

    Israel may not publicly say what it wants to do to the Arabs but it would not mind if they disappeared. Killing is wrong from both sides that we can agree to. Not allowing another people to have the freedoms they were once denied and what about all the settlements, can you explain what Israel plans to do? I am not as educated as some people that know more about the middle east but it seems so obvious they are forcing the Palestinians into a Ghetto. They learned well from what was done to them by the Nazis. As for a Jewish homeland is America not big enough??

  • Eyesontheworld

    The British started this whole mess and quietly walked away. They have as much blame as anyone.
