"If you ever wondered why the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is so complicated, but were afraid to ask, then this is the film to see."
This film addresses the Zionist Movement and the development of the State of Israel, settlements (or colonies), the 1967 occupation of the West Bank and Gaza, and violations of international law. The Iron Wall features interviews with prominent Israeli and Palestinian activists and political analysts, as well as Israeli settlers and soldiers, and Palestinian farmers.
Following the 1967 occupation of the West Bank and Gaza, more than 200 settlements and outposts have been built in these territories, in violation of international law. The Iron Wall exposes this phenomenon and follows the timeline, size, and population of the settlements, reveals how their construction has been a corner stone of Israeli policy, and demonstrates how the Wall secures them as permanent and irreversible facts on the ground.
