The new film, Radiance of Resistance tells the story of Janna Ayyad 9 years old, and Ahed Tamimi 14 years old, who live under military occupation in Nabi Saleh, Palestine. Janna Ayyad has been called the youngest journalist in Palestine. Ahed is one of many Palestinian children unjustly incarcerated in an Israeli Prison for opposing colonial occupation on her land. As Bassem Tamimi said, “Ahed is a representation of a new generation of our people, of young freedom fighters.” This film will take an intimate look at their everyday lives and their importance as the new generation of Palestinian non-violent resistance. In 2017, Radiance of Résistance won Best documentary at the Respect for Human Rights Film Festival.

Amid the general zeal of the Londons and the Kirschenbaums and their talking-heads colleagues for demonstrating their mastery of the history of the Second Temple period, and to revive debates from their youth movement days over whether Herod was good or bad for the Jews, one important detail was forgotten, or almost forgotten: that the excavation of this tomb of Herod was carried out in occupied territory, where Israel has no moral right to dig and certainly not to remove archaeological artifacts. In the enlightened world, what Israel is doing is called robbery.
