Resistance in the West Bank

Learning how not to get shot by the Israeli army.

We visit a town that’s run by the Israeli army and besieged by settlers, to meet a man whose life is dominated by the armed Israeli soldiers who are practically stationed in his back garden. Then we head north, where we visit the home of  aformer prisoner who has become a local celebrity after his hunger strikes in Israeli jails, and meet a member of the Islamic Jihad who believes that “what is taken by force, is returned by force.” On the way back to Ramallah, we get a tip off that the National Youth Week plans for a large demonstration may not be as greatly exaggerated as we thought, and head to a secret meeting to learn how not to get shot by the Israeli army.
