DemocracyNow.org - Amidst a spate of killings by Israeli forces of unarmed Palestinians in the occupied West Bank, we turn to the stunning Oscar-nominated documentary, "The Gatekeepers." The film brings together six former heads of Israel's internal security agency, the Shin Bet, collectively speaking out for the first time ever. They detail their methods against Palestinian militants and civilians in the Occupied Territories, including targeted killings, torture, recruiting informants, and the suppression of mass protests during two Intifadas. But in doing so, they also criticize the occupation they were assigned with defending, and warn successive Israeli governments have endangered their country's future by refusing to make peace. We're joined by the film's director, Dror Moreh.

"We are making the lives of millions unbearable, into prolonged human suffering, [and] it kills me," Carmi Gillon says in the film. "[We've become] a brutal occupation force similar to the Germans in World War II," adds Avraham Shalom.
