| Anti-Israel propaganda
This kind of pro Palestinian film does an injustice to the people of Israel, both Jews and Arabs. A filmmaker that does not show balance but rather a one-sided misinterpretation of facts, framing Israel in a binary of Jews = oppressors; Palestinians = innocents.

I note that the director states this film was shot in 'Palestine.' Actually, it was Israel, so even this states an untruth about its location.

If you want to see a fair and balanced representation of Israeli Jews and Arabs struggling with the wars and everyday lives, please see 'Bethlehem'; 'Waltz with Bashir'; 'Room 514' just for starters. At least these movies show Jews and Arabs as flawed human beings with both good and bad traits.

So, if Palestine exists, please will the direct of Salt Of This Sea kindly answer the following:

1) When was Palestine founded and by whom? 2) What were its borders? 3) What was its capital? 4) What were its major cities? 5) What constituted the basis of its economy? 6) What was its form of government? 7) Can you name at least one Palestinian leader before Arafat? 8) Was Palestine ever recognised by a country whose existence, at that time or now, leaves no room for interpretation? 9) What was the language of the country of Palestine ? 10) What was the prevalent religion of the country of Palestine ? 11) What was the name of its currency? Choose any date in history and tell what was the approximate exchange rate of the Palestinian monetary unit against the US dollar, German mark, GB pound, Japanese yen, or Chinese yuan on that date. 12) And, finally, since there is no such country today, what caused its demise and when did it occur?
