  • Duration: 10:58
  • Reya El-Salahi visits the West Bank, travelling through the check points and meets those campaigning for Palestinian rights. She discusses the beliefs of those on either side of the debate, and watches the queues of Palestinians trying to cross into Jerusalem to pray on the last day of Ramadaan. After seeing tear gas fired into a protest, Reya becomes increasingly angry at the force used by the Israeli army. This is the personal journey of presenter Reya El Salahi and also features contributors with extreme religious & political views. It deals with conflict in Israel & the Middle East from both the Jewish Israeli & Palestinian Arab sides. Issues of race, religion & contentious politics are explored. In order to explore balance across the differing political points of view, this should be used in conjunction with 13110, 13111, 13112, 13113, 13115 and 13116. First broadcast on BBC3 in November 2011 as part of the programme Mixed up in the Middle East.
