    As I watched The Promise through the means of DVD in my home I thought that every Israeli and, indeed every Jew in the Diaspora, should see this film. The lie that Palestine was "a land without people for people without a land" is thoroughly debunked in this film as it has been debunked elsewhere. This is a highly emotional film that lets the viewer see both sides but in the end shows that israel was built on the devastation of the people already on the land when the Zionists decided that they had the right to take over than land and dispossess its long time inhabitants. Go see The Promise. Talk about it and may it make you think in a different way.
