"Truth: Exposing Israeli Apartheid"
A documentary by Oakland film director & producer
Wendy W. Campbell
This extraordinary film reveals what mainstream corporate media in the United States seeks to conceal from the American public: that Israel has a "racist, anti-democratic, apartheid regime" which has long been fighting an "unjust war" against the Palestinians, as in the words of a courageous Israeli Refusenik soldier. Our tax dollars are massively funding this immoral ethnic cleansing.
Pictured above is a "bypass road" for Jews- only which goes to illegal Jews- only settlements on stolen Palestinian land. Palestinians are forbidden to use the bypass roads, and if caught on a bypass road, will be shot or beaten up and arrested. The winding road underneath is the original road, the Palestinian road, which is in need of repairs and lengthens trips by hours. By the way, the Palestinians must pay taxes to Israel, yet they receive far less amenities than do the Israelis, and in fact, are basically paying for being imprisoned in their own ancestral homeland without equal human rights.

What people are saying about "Truth":
|The film "Truth: Exposing Israeli Apartheid" is a carefully crafted collage including footage from the Palestinian Territories, eye-witness testimonies by peace and justice activists, commentary on the historical aspects of the Palestine-Israel conflict, various pro-Palestinian rallies in the San Francisco Bay Area, and concludes with ideas for the best solution to the conflict which will help to create world peace with justice for all.
The film leaves few viewers with dry eyes and powerfully drives home the point that American dollars are funding an immoral war against the indigenous Palestinian people, who have been enduring persecution since 1948 when the United League of Nations (made up entirely of European countries, and the forerunner of the UN) gave away Arab land that really was not theirs to give away to Eastern European Zionist Jews for a Jewish supremacist state in the first place.
The exclusionary, racist ideology of Zionism, a political offshoot of Judaism which began in the 1890's, has continued to manifest itself in the ethnic cleansing, dispossession, persecution and slow genocide of the indigenous Palestinian people to secure a Jewish supremacist state, and this is continuing up to this present moment in time, funded massively and unwittingly by generally uninformed U.S. taxpayers.
The time is long overdue to finally address these injustices which have been and still are being committed against the Palestinians. There can be no peace without justice, and there must be no double standards. We the people of America must demand an end to allowing any racist ideology such as Zionism to influence American foreign and domestic policies. Also we must demand that our government stop using any of our taxpayers' dollars to fund racist, apartheid countries, such as Israel, the #1 recipient of U.S. foreign aid, over 40% of the total U.S. foreign aid budget, even though tiny Israel is the 16th wealthiest country in the world, has no constitution, routinely breaks International Laws and has defied over 70 UN Resolutions.
This was the first documentary ever made by Wendy Campbell, and although it is a little "rough around the edges", it is still an excellent primer for a true portrayal and explanation of the Palestine-Israel conflict. For more recent and other related tapes and CDs, please scroll down.
Pictured above is well known and highly respected photojournalist / activist / radio host / writer Jeffrey Blankfort with film director/ producer Wendy Campbell at the premiere of "Truth: Exposing Israeli Apartheid" at La Pena Cultural Center in Berkeley, California, August 22, 2002. Jeffrey spoke about the huge influence of Jewish/Israeli lobby groups, such as AIPAC and JINSA, in his speech entitled "Washington: Israel's Most Important Occupied Territory" before the film screened. Mr. Blankfort is of Jewish ethnicity but considers himself "anti-Zionist".

"Flashpoint: Deciphering Jewish Intellectual Movements", an interview with Prof. Kevin MacDonald by TV talk-show host and producer, Mark Green. Prof. Kevin MacDonald is the author of three groundbreaking books on Judaism, the most recent being "The Culture of Critique". In it, MacDonald concludes that Jewish intellectual movements including Freudian psychology, Marxism (including other radical, Leftist politics), the Frankfurt School of Social Research, the New York intellectuals and others, including right-wing NeoConservatism, have all been covertly designed to advance specifically Jewish interests --often at the expense of gentile interests. MacDonald's brilliant analyses offer an alternative view of history which has the potential to change the course of major events still unfolding. It is likely that MacDonald's reputation will surely grow as his explosive ideas reach larger audiences. You can explore his ideas further by reading a concise review of his latest book at http://www.heretical.com/miscella/culturec.html as well as buy this perhaps historically important VHS/DVD to add to your collection.

TAKE ACTION! Organize demonstrations nationwide!
If you are looking for a way to actively help to change our U.S. government's unconditional support of apartheid Israel, please consider organizing your own monthly demonstrations on the 16th of every month to coincide, in honor of Rachel Corrie's ultimate sacrifice for justice and equality for the Palestinian people. On March 16, 2003, Rachel Corrie, a 23-year-old American peace activist, was deliberately bulldozed to death in plain view by an Israeli soldier with a Caterpillar bulldozer, made in the USA and paid for with US tax dollars. She was trying to stop an Israeli soldier from demolishing the home of a Palestinian family in Rafah, a poverty-stricken city in the Gaza Strip, Palestine, which has become an open-air prison under Israeli occupation. Just since Sept. 2000, over 12,500 Palestinians have become homeless as the result of relentless illegal home demolitions by the Israeli army, and this does not take into consideration all the millions of Palestinian refugees who became homeless and stateless beginning with the arrival of Zionist terrorists in Palestine in 1948.
Americans for Justice in Palestine-Israel, a grassroots political activist group based in Oakland, CA, helped to spearhead a nationwide campaign to stage awareness-raising demonstrations on the 16th of every month, holding up huge 4' x 10' banners in front of local politicians' offices on a rotating basis. If the 16th falls on a Saturday, we've held the rallies in popular shopping areas and give out literature calling for the boycott of Israeli goods and any company worldwide that supports apartheid Israel, such as Estee Lauder, The Gap and Victoria's Secret. For more info, check out www.bdsmovement.net. The banners feature a huge photo of Rachel Corrie in front of the bulldozer, moments before it was used to kill her by an Israeli soldier, and the message says:
STOP U.S. SUPPORT OF APARTHEID ISRAEL NOW!

The Two-State Solution is Official Apartheid!
The One-State Solution with Equal Rights for ALL regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or sex in the land of Palestine-Israel is the most humane, progressive solution and is truly consistent with modern democratic American values.
First, a Truth and Conciliation Committee must be set up, just as it was in South Africa when its apartheid regime was dismantled.
The immoral manner in which Israel was founded must be honestly addressed. White, European countries of the UN gave away Arab land that was NOT their's to give away in the first place to Eastern European Zionist Jews who began a violent ethnic cleansing campaign beginning the day that Israel, a Zionist Jewish supremacist state, was thus founded in May, 1948. Zionist Jewish terrorists demolished entire Palestinian villages, massacring hundreds of Palestinians, and chasing off over half of the Palestinian population, at the time about 800,000, from their own homeland. This is known as "The Nakba" ,or in English "The Catastrophe", to Arabs. These were the first of the Palestinian refugees who now number approximately 4.5 million. According to UN Resolutions, International Law and world opinion, the Palestinian refugees have the RIGHT TO RETURN to their ancestral homeland, yet Israel has not allowed one Palestinian refugee to return. Rather, Israel is relentlessly and methodically continuing on its ethnic cleansing campaign against all the non-Jewish Palestinians, who are the indigenous people of the land. Our U.S. tax dollars are massively funding this ruthless, racist campaign, while the U.S. corporate media reports almost uniformly from a pro-Israel, Zionist point of view, misleading the U.S. public on the true nature of what our tax dollars are supporting in racist, apartheid Israel.
As was accomplished in South Africa, the apartheid regime in Israel must be completely dismantled and replaced with a truly modern, secular, American-style democracy with completely equal rights for all regardless of religon, race, ethnicity or sex. All the Palestinian refugees MUST be allowed their inalienable right to return. There will be no more "Jewish State", but instead a multi-cultural, secular, modern democratic country of Palestine-Israel that has its natural roots in the world's three major monotheistic religions of Christianity, Islam and Judaism. Obviously a new flag will be needed to reflect the inclusive new democratic country.
Here is a prototype for the new flag for Palestine-Israel:
The photo above is not very good, but I will explain the design concept. The world icon in the middle is supposed to be blue, green and white all swirled together. The three bars of colors from left to right are representative of Judaism (blue), Christianity (white) and Islam (green). The white dove with the olive branch in its beak represents Peace, of course. Plus there are (or were) alot of olive trees in Palestine-Israel.
If you would like to support the democratic one-state solution then please visit the following website and join in with our efforts to make this a reality! http://onestate.net/pages/declaration.htm
By the way, not all Jews are Zionists. In fact, there are Jews who believe that Zionism is the extreme opposite of Judaism. For more information on this point of view, please check out www.nkusa.org or order my video documentary "Neturei Karta: Jews Against Zionism" (see above).
There are many more such websites that denounce Zionism as a racist ideology.
The two-state solution would be worse for the Palestinians than the bantustans (enforced ghettos for Blacks) that were imposed in apartheid South Africa, far worse than our Indian reservations, because North American Indians have completely equal rights like the rest of their fellow Americans. What the two-state solution really entails is little disconnected "islands" of non-Jewish Palestinian ghettos that have no self-sovereignty other than self-policing at best. In no way, shape or form can this be a real nation. Besides, even if the borders went back to the borders of '67, that is only at best 22% of the land that was once all of Palestine and the Israelis would still control almost all the resources. The fact is, the two-state solution is simply unfair, regressive and unacceptable in every way. The civilized modern democratic world must not allow for double standards for Zionist Israel. Israel must not be allowed to steal Palestinians' land for a Jewish state, nor allowed to persecute others simply because they are not Jewish.
Like South Africa, Israel must transform into Palestine-Israel, a true secular, modern democracy with completely equal rights for all regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, gender.
If enough people want Justice and Peace, it will happen.
Take action today and every day until our mission of liberty, justice and equality for ALL is accomplished!

Many interesting links can be found at this excellent website including one to a must-read account of how Israel was formed entitled "Origin of the Palestine-Israel Conflict" written by the Jews for Justice in the Middle East on this website!
www.gilad.co.uk Gilad Atzmon is an amazing creative force, both as a feted jazz musician and brillian writer. His latest book is a MUST READ and is entitled "The Wandering Who". In self-imposed exile from Israel, he is of Jewish heritage but is an anti-Zionism activist based in London. "Exile", one of his CDs, which I have and can highly recommend, has the following inscription on its sleeve: "This album is a call for attention to Palestinian suffering. It is a prayer for the world to acknowledge the Palestinian essential right of return."

www.palsolidarity.org This is the website of the International Solidarity Movement, a Palestinian-led organization with chapters all over the world, including here in Northern California. They organize groups to go over to the Israeli-occupied Palestinian Territories to act as witnesses to the daily brutal oppression of the Palestinian people by the Israeli Defense Force, since US mainstream media refuses to show this. They help the Palestinians in other ways also, like removing roadblocks, or bringing them medical supplies, etc. Contact them if you want to help them in any way. Their most famous former member was Rachel Corrie, a 23 year old American woman who bulldozed to death while defending a Palestinian home from being demolished.

This wall is being used to steal even more of the Palestinians' land while the Palestinians are held under curfew. It separates entire Palestinian villages from their orchards, businesses and schools. See with your own eyes the racist monstosity that our government is enabling the Israelis to build. Get involved-- stop the Wall!

www.newamericancentury.org See for yourself what the Zionist neocons have been planning for years! This is their own official website! The war on Iraq is just an offshoot of the Israeli-Palestine conflict. The Palestinians have been on the front-lines of the Zionists' war for decades and now the Zionist neocons are brazenly further involving the American government, and inadvertantly the American people, with endless wars on behalf of Israel for Zionist dominance in the Middle East, using the US for its cash cow. Iraq has been on their "to do" list for years. After 9-11, they saw their opportunity to plow ahead with their vision of Zionist domination of the Middle East. According to their plan, they want "to do" Syria, Iran, and all of the Middle East eventually, and re-make it so that they are subjugated to the Zionists' benefit, at great cost to the native people of the countries. They're not interested in democracy, they're interested in self-serving control of the people and their resources. Obviously, the neocons have found greedy comrades in the corporate world as well as the loony Christian Zionists. John Kerry, and the democratic party also, pledge unconditional allegience to the racist, apartheid state of Israel, even before America's best interests. We recommend that you vote for a third party candidate such as Ralph Nader or Marcia Feinland who seek a just solution to the Israel-Palestine conflict first and foremost.

They urge others to join them to pray for the peaceful dismantling of the Zionist state of Israel. They are so completely sincere in this belief that they burn the Israeli flag at demonstrations in New York, London and Jerusalem on the Jewish holiday of Purim every year.
www.internationalanswer.org ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism) is the best anti-war, anti-racism organization when it comes to staging huge rallies to protest war and racism. They are also highly commendable because they do not shy away from the hot topic of Palestine-Israel as many other so-called peace groups do. The struggle to end war, racism, colonialism and occupation begins with Palestine, but includes Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere in the world. ANSWER also sponsors excellent seminars, workshops, and film screenings to help educate Americans about what the media and our government are trying to hide. Please check out their website for upcoming events and to find out how you can help.
www.israelshamir.net Israel Shamir is a controversial writer, who is a bit of a chameleon. He is a long-time anti-Zionist activist, based in Israel and Sweden. Born into Judaism, he has supposedly converted to Christianity. We at MarWenMedia disapprove of his dual citizenship of Israel and Sweden, believeing he should not live in Israel which is propped up with US tax dollars and we question his sincerity with regards to his commitment to the Palestinian cause when he lives on stolen Palestinian land and seems to be in cahoots with the Israelis. None-the-less, he has written some interesting articles and you can subscribe to his reader list to read his thought-provoking, insightful articles about the Palestine-Israel situation and join in the discussion with people from around the world.
