OCCUPATION 101 (documentary), 2006
directed by Sufyan Omeish and Abdallah Omeish
narrated by Alison Weir, founder of If Americans Knew
USA, 90 minutes, English
Showtimes: Friday, Aug 22, 2014 at 7 pm
Tickets are $10.

CRS (Center for Remembering & Sharing) invites you to screen and discuss OCCUPATION 101, a multi-award-winning documentary film about the current and historical root causes of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Unlike any other film ever produced on the conflict, OCCUPATION 101 presents a comprehensive analysis of the facts and hidden truths surrounding the never ending controversy and dispels many of its long-perceived myths and misconceptions.

The film details life under Israeli military rule, the role of the United States in the conflict, and the major obstacles that stand in the way of a lasting and viable peace. The roots of the conflict are explained through first-hand on-the-ground experiences from leading Middle East scholars, peace activists, journalists, religious leaders and humanitarian workers, many of them Jewish, whose voices have too often been suppressed in American media outlets (see complete list below).

CRS is not on one side or against anyone. Our Center exists to create events and experiences wherein we can together remember that we are all the same, deserving of only love, able to give and receive only love, regardless of what our perceptions may show us. This is easier to do when we take time to really see and understand one another, and it is essential to do so whenever we perceive conflict. We have decided to show this particular film not to tell anyone what to think but rather to facilitate conversation and understanding and promote unity and peace. Many Jewish, Israeli, Palestinian and American-based Middle East scholars, peace activists, journalists, religious leaders and humanitarian workers share first-hand on-the-ground experiences and explanations about the roots of the conflict so it is our hope that this film can be a reasonable starting point for further study and conversation. Please feel comfortable and welcome to offer constructive criticism and share any concerns you may have during the Q&A following the screening. We will do our best to establish an environment of openness, inclusiveness, respect and love.

Topics covered include the first wave of Jewish immigration from Europe in the 1880's, the 1920 tensions, the 1948 war, the 1967 war, the first Intifada of 1987, the Oslo Peace Process, Settlement expansion, the role of the United States Government, the second Intifada of 2000, the separation barrier and the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza, as well as many heart wrenching testimonials from victims of this tragedy.
