Ross Kemp Looks at Palestine and Israel

[tweetmeme] Have you ever wondered what life is like in Palestine and Israel, but you just don’t want to go and find out for yourself?  Ross Kemp has a great documentary film that looks at life in both Israel and Palestine and tries to find out how normal people view the conflict.

Kemp talks with the IDF, Hamas officials, tunnel diggers in Gaza, Israeli citizens in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem and many more.  The beauty of this documentary is that it shows both sides while staying away from the politics.  Kemp says: “It’s the politicians and the extremists who are pushing the agenda. You don’t get to hear the voices of the average person on the street, whether it be in Tel Aviv or Jerusalem, or whether it be in Gaza or Ramallah.”

Take a look:

Part 4

Part 5

What do you think?  Is it possible to have an apolitical, unbiased documentary of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict?  Ethan Bronner doesn’t think so…
