Inside Israel's Army
Deep inside Israel's military forces—How does living with war affect their view the world?
As President Obama begins a new push for peace in the Middle East, NOW travels to Israel to see how a lifetime of war shapes the psyche of a nation where almost every able-bodied man and woman must serve in the military.
"There's a story here of a generation, mine and yours, that understands that the most important value is the value of life. We finally got that it's not noble to die for our country," Idan Motola, an Israeli army reservist, tells NOW.
This week, NOW goes inside Israel's defense forces - where few have gone before - to speak with reservists about the impact of constant war on both their lives and their world view.
Parts of this show were excerpted from the film "Reporting for Duty".
Watch our show "Peace and Prosperity in the West Bank?", which focuses on the international effort underway in Jenin to build a safe and economically prosperous Palestinian state from the ground up.
