Documentary on Gaza; must see!

Rageh Omar goes back to Gaza after 10 years to film this wonderful documentary. He meets the head of the family that kidnapped Alan Johnston, who denies kidnapping the journalist (but they did) instead he asks why the whole world cares about the fate one westerner and not the thousands of Palestinians killed.

There is also a rare interview with Ala’a al Homs, head of Al Aqsa Martyr Brigades, the military wing of Fatah and one of the pioneers of kidnappings in Gaza; Al Homs admits that kidnappings aren't helping the Palestinian cause.
The second part of the documentary is even more compelling, Rageh shows the harsh conditions in Gaza that is responsible for the violence and kidnapings in Gaza.

It's a compelling documentary. You can watch it here, part1 and part2
