VIDEO: Gaza - The Road to War

This two-part documentary presents a relatively balanced outline of Israel's engagement, disengagement, re-engagement and current bombardment of Gaza. It provides an explanation of Israel's enforcement of its legitimate security concerns in Lebanon and Gaza. The political and economic context is also covered, including the Palestinian elections and the international community's response to same.

Here is the text that accompanies the video:

The people of the Gaza Strip - one of the world's most densely populated strips of land - have experienced it all: military occupation, civil war, an economic blockade and international isolation. Yet back in 2005, Gazans celebrated a new era of peace and even prosperity. So, how did it all go so wrong? Gaza: The road to war investigates.
