Explores the four-decade-old Israeli military legal system in the Occupied Territories. Since Israel conquered the territories of the West Bank and Gaza Strip in the 1967 War, the military has imposed thousand of orders and laws, established military courts, sentenced hundreds of thousand of Palestinians, enabled half a million Israeli "settlers" to move to the Occupied Territories and developed a system of long-term jurisdiction by an occupying army that is unique in the world. The film records the testimonies of the military legal professionals who were the architects of the system and helped run it in its formative years.

This documentary is about the "holy people" living in the occupied "holy land" doing Unholy things and trying to justify their doings by making up yet another rule to fulfill their needs and wants. It is also about the eternal double standards that shaped history as we know it. Israelis themselves admitting it all.

A very well done documentary. This movie was interesting, informative, and worse seeing!! I recommend this movie for all to see. Well worth the price of admission to any theater.

Fascinating! You have to read the subtitles, but these interviews are golden. You really see the personalities and different ethics that guided these decision-makers (all men).
