Louis Theroux: Ultra Zionists

372

Louis Theroux investigates ultra-nationalist Jewish settlers in East Jerusalem, Hebron and Nablus. Some of the settlers believe that the whole of Palestine belongs to the Jews and do not believe in a two state solution,.

Theroux tours the Muslim quarter of East Jerusalem with Daniel Luria, an executive director of a Zionist movement which provides home for Jews in areas which are hotly disputed, he questions the apparently forced displacement of Arabs from the area and the growing number of Jewish people moving into their properties.

In the course of his tour of the area he meets a group of Jews who believe it is their religious duty to settle in some of the disputed areas of East Jerusalem despite it being illegal even under Israeli law for them to settle in those areas.

There was some criticism from viewers that, whilst Theroux was clearly not on the side of the Zionists, there was not more of an effort made to include contributions from Palestinians directly affected by the actions those that the documentary focuses on.
