we didn't know

One of the claims made by Germans concerning the treatment of the Jews, made after World War 2, was that "we didn't know" what was happening.

I've heard it said quite often that many Israelis pay no attention to the occupation and are ignorant of the treatment given to the Palestinians by the Israeli Defense Forces.

In this video, Israeli high school students are shown the movie, 5 Broken Cameras, cooperatively made by an Israeli and a Palestinian. If you haven't seen the movie, you should, but this short video is revealing of the way young Israelis are kept in the dark about what is going on. Of course, they, as well as we, are easily able to see what is happening in the occupied territories simply by using the Internet. It's not acceptable to say that one doesn't know when to find out is so easy to do.
