Film footage of Palestine in 1896 was recently published online thanks to Lobster Films. It shows Palestinians of all faiths – Christians, Jews and Muslims – living side by side, and praying side by side.

Footage filmed by the Lumière Brothers and extracted from the documentary Palestine: Story of a Land by Simone Bitton.

  1. The bringer of facts

    Can we keep all these Isreal/Palestine posts to trot out in 5 years when Isreal get a hankering for some ethic cleansing again?

    It’s really interesting how people “care” about certain deaths over others. Not judging, just interested.

      “really interesting how people “care” about certain deaths over others” …and what else pray tell has the great oracle told you about other peoples thoughts and motivations, or did you just pull that observation out of your arse?

    Peace between 3 religions: Muslims, Jews and Christians is only ever temporary, whenever and wherever you find it. What is this post trying to tell us? Lulls happen? So what?

      Actually that footage was shot on Ottoman Syria, as it would have officially been known. But don’t let that stop you trying to call it something else BS . Considering your recent slagging of RTE this is quite hypocritical

    and there were chocolate rivers and gumdrop rainbows and everyone held hands together…………………….

    The powerful mix of anti-semitism, indirect hatred towards the UK and the blatant self loathing at your strong subservient condition as US lackies make these posts quite a little study in post colonial syndrome. Keep it up.

      It’s both sickening and upsetting…I’m started to think that the majority of the populace is that hate filled bigoted brainless taxi driver we all complain about

        Hate-filled, bigoted, brainless? That’s a description of the far right is it not? Right wing people generally would be pro-Israel.

      Your mix of conflating criticism of Israeli policy with anti semitism , indirect hatred towards those with legitimiate criticisms and a strong subserviant condition as a Hasbara lackie make these posts quite a little study in how to be a complete tool, well done keep it up….

      1. Bejayziz

        There have been some pretty flagrant anti semitic statements being thrown around the comments section of late Fluffy, not saying all of them have been but there have been quite a few anti semitic characters on BS of late….

        oh and Habara lackie? really? I suppose he’s a “Putinbot” too, hate these utterly juvenile responses to someone not agreeing with the populist line…

          1. realPolithicks

            There have been numerous posts conflating Israeli’s with the nazi’s to name just one item. Look, most of the comments are reasonable and to the point but there is an element which clearly cross the line.

        …see your heroes have just killed and maimed more children at Shifa hospital…happy now?

    1. Am i still On this Island

      Bisted, the actual name for the area when the footage was shot is Ottoman Syria and the region was the Mutasarrifate of Jerusalem.

      I know you may not like this important historical detail as it does not fit in with the twisted and erroneous historical narrative out forward as part of the current conflict

      1. bisted

        …err…I think you may be mixing me up with someone who cares about your perverse rationale. Anyway, I thought that your ‘historical’ justification for ethnic cleansing in Palestine came from Moses.
