**The Iron Wall**
58 minutes

In 1923, Vladmir Jabotinsky -- father of the Zionist right -- wrote:
"/Zionist colonization... 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 on, these words became the official and unspoken policy
of the Zionist movement and, later, the State of Israel. Colonies, often
referred to as "settlements," were used to solidify the Zionist foothold
throughout historic Palestine.

Following the 1967 occupation of the West Bank and Gaza, more than 200
settlements and outposts have been built in these territories, in
violation of international law. "*The Iron Wall*" exposes this
phenomenon and follows the timeline, size, and population of the
settlements, reveals how their construction has been a cornerstone of
Israeli policy, and demonstrates how the Wall secures them as permanent
and irreversible facts on the ground.

This documentary warns that a contiguous and viable Palestinian state is
becoming no longer possible, and that the chances for a peaceful
resolution of the conflict are slipping away.

"*The Iron Wall*" features interviews with prominent Israeli and
Palestinian peace activists and political analysts, including Jeff
Halper, Akiva Eldar, Hind Khoury, and others. Also included are
eye-opening interviews with Israeli settlers and soldiers, and
Palestinian farmers.

/"This is a powerful film exposing one of the most pressing issues of
the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. It is imperative that it gets a wide
audience, and that efforts are mobilized to subvert a catastrophic
outcome./"  ~Jean-Jacques Joris, head of the Swiss Representative Office
to the Palestinian Authority
