Screening: The Zionist Story

Ed: The Zionist Story tells of the events that brought about and continued to support the Jewish state of Israel. The mainstream media was and still is controlled by Zionists. Thus, the media told and tells the story in a way that hides the key role Zionists played. It was, in a sense, a false flag, in that it blamed any negative aspects brought on by Zionists, on peoples or states other than Zionists or Israel. This, in essence, is a false flag, and the reason it is presented here along with “Other False Flags.”

The Zionist Story (2009), an independent film by Ronen Berelovich, is the story of ethnic cleansing, colonialism and apartheid to produce a demographically Jewish State.

Ronen successfully combines archival footage with commentary from himself and others such as Ilan Pappe, Terry Boullata, Alan Hart and Jeff Halper.

From the author: I have recently finished an independent documentary, The Zionist Story, in which I aim to present not just the history of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, but also the core reason for it: the Zionist ideology, its goals (past and present) and its firm grip not only on Israeli society, but also, increasingly, on the perception of Middle East issues in Western democracies.

These concepts have already been demonstrated in the excellent Occupation 101 (youtube version) documentary (screened here at Joyce Beers Center on July 13, 2014) made by Abdallah Omeish and Sufyan Omeish, but in my documentary I approach the subject from the perspective of an Israeli, ex-reserve soldier and someone who has spent his entire life in the shadow of Zionism.
