*/Beyhond the Mirage /*                                  50 min*/
The Face of the Occupation/**/                            /***

Mi?rage? (mi?räzh?) /n/. a strongly held but false belief: delusion, 
hallucination, illusion, mirage, phantasm, misconception

David Neunuebel grew up in an average American home where the Middle 
East and the Palestinian/Israel conflict were never part of his world. 
Yet after his first visit to the area he knew something was terribly 
wrong. What he saw, after many more trips, went counter to every 
American instinct he'd been taught growing up. This documentary is an 
attempt to get 'beyond the mirage.'

*/Beyond the Mirage: The Face of an Occupation/* is an opportunity to 
hear from people who actually live in the region and goes beyond what we 
get from the American media.

"/You can't legislate good will - that comes through education./" ~ 
Malcolm X

/"We have to realize that the Occupation and the settlements are in 
their essence institutionalized violence." ~ Rabbi Michael Lerner/

/"Any criticism on the policies of Israel is hampered and made 
impossible by a terrible trick and crime of Israeli propaganda that any 
criticism on the politics of Israel ... is induced by anti-semitic 
feelings. What Israel is doing is destroying the Jewish world and the 
Jewish heritage."  ~/Hajo Meyer, Auschwitz survivor//

Why should YOU care? It's your money that pays for the occupation &
illegal Israeli settlements.

wars -- think of others. Don't forget those who want peace. As you pay

to drink from. As you go home, your own home -- think of others -- don't 
forget those who live in tents. As you sleep and count the planets, 
think of others -- there are people who have no place to sleep. As you 
liberate yourself with metaphors think of others -- those who have lost 
their right to speak. And as you think of distant others -- think of 
yourself and say 'I wish I were a candle in the darkness.' " ~/Mahmoud
