A short trailer of an upcoming documentary. Israeli people unable to get their stories into the world. Child Trafficking, corruption and human rights violations. Distressing scenes.
There are a reputed 10,000 children taken from parents by the Welfare every single year. The profit to the private institutions for each child per month is $5000. Foster care is one of the highest in the world, with reports of sexual and physical abuse. Foster parents are also compensated with up to $2000 per month per child.
Israel also has a 99% conviction rate in the courts. It is believed that up to 50% of prisoners are innocent. Activists report constantly on injustices but are gagged or blocked.
Whistle blowers are at real risk. Tax, banking, judges, police are all in the sights of the brave people who speak out.
They all speak from a love of the land, and a strong desire to clean up the country for a better place to live. One in 3 children are hungry and the poverty levels are nearly 40% in the whole country. They need your help, and for you to listen. This is the reality for millions of Jewish people in Israel.
