These totally nice people will surely soon find an amicable way to solve their differences. Though, I can see why they all want to live in the beautiful paradise pictured.
I guess in real-estate terms, either:
A. a magic man flying off to heaven in that same general area aproximately 1500 years ago
B an invisible sky wizard promising the same land to your ancestors thousands of years ago in a book that those ancestors wrote
trumps a lack of vegetation or water. Location, location, location.

That Australian guy is truly loathsome.

This is amazing, and belongs here. I dare say, though, that the difference between Zionists and Jews is a gorge deep and wide; perhaps that Jewish people tag should go...
Ehhh, I meant it in the proud and harmless tradition of 'white people' 'black people' ' wtf japan' and 'women'. Tag stays until I see more forceful argument.
Oh I hear you, and your counter argument is entirely in keeping with PoeTV's proud traditions. Mine was merely a suggestion, not an order.

Rated 5 because the bris ceremony around the twenty-four minute mark made me uncomfortable.

Leave it to the americans to really kick the whole thing up a notch from "terribly difficult situation" to "this is beyond silly". They're the real villains here.
You mean the Australian guy?
Or the short bit about the tourists? They were the real villains? Worse than the Australian? They seemed about the same as the rest of the extremists interviewed who shared the same views.
How were the tourists qualitatively worse than everyone else?
By sheer insanity :)

If anyone is interested in some issues brought up in this I highly recommend this book
The author Robert Fisk was the middle east correspondant for the independant and later the times and was based in Beirut for over 30 years
I havent seen any louis theroux stuff in years, It seems hes moved from doing interesting stuff on various "wacky" stuff in america to dealing with extremely controversial issues, he seems to have gotten more serious, have ye seen the paedophile one?

I loved how crazy Australian dude said that if Jews don't stay in the paradise of Israel then their only other choice would be to "go back to the ovens of Auschwitz or the coast of Australia" as if those two things were somehow the same. The guy's got hyperbole down to a fine art.
