Maryam drew my attention to this 2004 documentary airing on television tonight in Sydney on ABC1. I can’t stay up until past midnight to watch it, but if any blog readers happen to catch it (or have already seen it) and want to write a review, we’d be glad to post it!
The powerful story of a group of older Jewish women who monitor the Palestinian checkpoints to try to alleviate harassment of Arabs by Israeli soldiers.
Also: due to a terrible error, a whole bunch of pending comments awaiting approval got deleted. Sorry to all those who wrote long and passionate diatribes. Carry on writing more diatribes that may or may not disappear into the aether.
