5 Broken Cameras

Recommended Posts

I am putting this here instead of in Worldy Distractions because it has to do with Jewish fundamentalism (and als, a bit with Muslim fundamentalism).This documentary is nominated for an Oscar this year, and was incredibly well done. We just watched it on Saturday and it enraged both H and me.

It is the story of a regular man, his family and his friends who live in the West Bank on the Palestinian side. The movie documents the ever increasing Jewish settlements which destroyed the land that they farmed. The filmaker hought his first camera to document the birth of his 4th son, but quickly began filming the protests that erupted as a result of the settlements and the wall that was built (all of which were non-violent on the Palenstinian side). It was incredibly moving and really made you question WTF Isreal is doing and helped me to understand what drives segments of the population to terrorism. The long and short is that the Isreali settlers feel entitled to the land because the bible said that they should be there.

Any one else see this yet? Thoughts?

Sounds very interesting. Alas, my laptop is ridiculously uncooperative when it comes to downloading things. May try and have a look on my phone to see if it's available on itunes.

I've seen the trailer and would love to see it! Is it streaming anywhere online (with English subtitles)? (I've only seen the streaming of an Arab version with Hebrew subtitles).

We rented it off Amazon streaming, so hopefully it will be on iTunes too :)

Ooo, didn't know you could rent things from Amazon! As I said, I'm absolutely crap when it comes to things like this :oops:

Off to have a look.

EDIT: Just checked, and it's available through LoveFilm. Have been meaning to sign up for that for ages, so will put that on my list for the weekend :)

      I would have loved to start my jogging journey again but is cloudy and rainy and a little bit snowy. Damn it. Maybe I will start nevertheless. When I start in shitty weather I might continue in good weather.

      Disgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.
