Israel Vs Israel: A Film About Israeli Peace Activists (2010)
Part 1   Part 2   Part 3                              

One grandmother, one rabbi, one anarchist and one ex-soldier – four Israelis trying to put an end to the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian Territories. 

The documentary Israel vs Israel is a film about Jewish peace activists who in both words and actions take a stand again 40 years of occupation and illegal settlements.

This is a film about the desperate struggle to somehow change the current situation and improve life for the Palestinians. In return, these activists face scepticism and hatred from fellow Israeli countrymen.

Israel vs Israel reveals both sensitive family discussion as well as secret testimonies from former combat soldiers.

These Israelis are often portrayed as naïve, unreliable and dangerous for the Jewish state. They are often ridiculed and demonised for their honest commitment.

The fight for peace divides Israel in Terje Carlsson's new documentary.

Part 1 and 2 is the film. Part 3 is a "making of" behind-the-scenes feature.
