*/2000 Terrorists/*

In 1982, following Israel's invasion of Lebanon and the evacuation of 
the PLO, Israeli defense minister Ariel Sharon declared that '2,000 
terrorists' remained in Sabra and Shatila refugee camps. Two days later 
the Israeli occupation army used Lebanese Christian Phalangists to 
exterminate Palestinian civilians consisting mostly of women and 
children. The United Nations officially declared the horrendous 
massacres genocide.

"On Sept. 16, three groups of Lebanese Forces, one from East Beirut, two 
from South Lebanon, were allowed to enter Sabra and Shatila, which by 
then were 'surrounded and sealed off' by Israeli soldiers. What followed 
was a 40-hour orgy of death and violence, in which an estimated 2,000 
people were killed," wrote the filmmaker, Peter Speetjens of the 

The film follows four survivors, still living in Shatila camp, who were 
among a group of 23 plaintiffs who initiated legal action against Sharon 
and others responsible for the killings, charging them in a Belgium 
court with genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Umm Ali lost her daughter and entire family in law. Umm Hussein's 
husband was captured by Israelis and never returned. Sana lost her 
husband and Mahmoud lost 3 brothers, father, and several cousins, uncles 
and aunts. The docudrama reconstructs "the 1982 massacre against the 
backdrop of ups and downs in the Belgian lawsuit.
