*Breaking the Silence:  *(51 min)***
Truth and Lies in the War on Terror*

This film, set in Afghanistan, Iraq and Washington, looks at the US's 
/'war on terror'/ and /'liberation'/ of countries where bloodshed and 
repression continue.

"'We're fighting a war on terror', say [the US and Great Britain). But 
what are the real aims of this war and who are the most threatening

of terrorism that never speaks its name --- because it is our terrorism."
"It's not enough for journalists to see themselves as mere messengers 
without understanding the hidden agendas of the message and myths that 
surround it." ~ John Pilger

Hamas or, absurdly, 'Israel's right to exist'. They know the opposite to 
be true: that Palestine's right to exist was cancelled 61 years ago and 
the expulsion and extinction of the indigenous people was planned & 
executed by the founders of Israel. They know that the infamous "Plan D" 
resulted in the murderous de-population of 369 Palestinian towns and 
villages by the Haganah (Jewish army) and that massacre upon massacre of 
Palestinian civilians are referred to in official records as "ethnic
