Synopsis

Fighters on both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict describe what they're doing and why they're doing it in this examination of the military side of the hostilities. The "through-the-gunsights view" (as "Frontline" producer Michael Kirk puts it) includes footage of operations (taped in December 2001) and comments from a Palestinian man identified as a "living martyr" (a suicide-bomber-in-training). "You get an idea," says Kirk, "that they're on some collision course that's bigger and more profound than it has been in some time."
