A thought-provoking and powerful documentary film on the current and historical root causes of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Unlike any other film ever produced on the conflict — ‘Occupation 101′ presents a comprehensive analysis of the facts and hidden truths surrounding the never ending controversy and dispels many of its long-perceived myths and misconceptions.
The film also details life under Israeli military rule, the role of the United States in the conflict, and the major obstacles that stand in the way of a lasting and viable peace. The roots of the conflict are explained through first-hand on-the-ground experiences from leading Middle East scholars, peace activists, journalists, religious leaders and humanitarian workers whose voices have too often been suppressed in American media outlets.
The film covers a wide range of topics — which include — the first wave of Jewish immigration from Europe in the 1880’s, the 1920 tensions, the 1948 war, the 1967 war, the first Intifada of 1987, the Oslo Peace Process, Settlement expansion, the role of the United States Government, the second Intifada of 2000, the separation barrier and the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza, as well as many heart wrenching testimonials from victims of this tragedy.

A great doco for anyone looking for the truth. Despite what Hykomdamor says below the doc is actually very informative illustrating facts that are generally left out of main stream American media (as usa funds israel). The land belongs to Palestine and they should at the very least be treated equally and humanely…Free Palestine!
I told a court marshal board in 1968 I didn’ t see how they could expect me to fight for someone else’s freedom when I don’t have my own. I expect Americans have their hands full here with the war mongers who are running the USA. I would like to see Israel and Palestine in peace, but like old Abe said, “one war at a time”, that was Lincoln.
the name of the documentary says it all
