Michael Medved, the syndicated radio host, calls "Israel Indivisible: The Case for the Ancient Homeland" a great crash course on the "ongoing effort to obliterate Israel."
What about the "two-state" solution that American presidents have advocated? What about reports as recently as Friday of proposed peace talks, encouraged by Barack Obama?
Unfortunately, as USA Today reports, Palestinian leaders continue to refuse to recognize Israel as a Jewish state.
"The refusal," says Gerald] Steinberg of Bar Ilan University, "means Israel has no confidence that a Palestinian state on its border will end the decades-long attempt by Arab nations to destroy it, so there is no reason to agree to a two-state solution."
"On one side are those that love and support the Jewish people and the land, and on the other side those who seem to abhor anything and anyone associated with Israel," the documentary's creators explain. "Within the anti-Israel camp, there are those who uphold that side as a result of misinformation and lies, and those who are simply uninformed and follow along. If these people can be reached and persuaded, then the swell of support for the Jewish state can grow exponentially."
The documentary makes a compelling case for the Jewish people's historical, archaeological, legal and biblical rights to their ancient homeland.
It tells the story of Israel and the Jewish people through the lives and voices of the people who lived and died to establish and hold the land. From Abram and the promise to the fall of the Ottoman Empire, the film examines the biblical, archeological and historical evidence for the ancient and modern country of Israel.
It examines the many political twists and turns that make Israel the world's most controversial nation. At the center of all of this history is a group of people who are arguably the worldβs most persecuted.
From the Balfour Declaration to the San Remo Resolution, sometimes called the "birth certificate" of Israel, through the joint resolution by Congress in 1922 and the United Nation's statements, the documentation is there to affirm Israel's right to the land.
Cardoza-Moore said it's "more crucial than ever that the facts about this volatile issue be exposed once and for all."
"As 'modern world' documentation of the history, we underscore that going back to the late 1800s, European leaders like Lord Palmerston, then British Foreign Secretary, strongly recommended that the Ottoman Empire allow the Jews to return to their historical homeland," said Cardoza-Moore.
Cardoza-Moore worked with Emmy Award-winning director Stan Moore.
"Through the inspirational story of Israel and the people who have been a part of that story, we hope to change hearts and minds toward this volatile issue," Moore said. "The more that people know and understand the long and deep tie the Jewish people have with this land the more they will stand behind Israel."
