VIDEO: The Last Moments of Gush Katif

In 2005, in an effort to demonstrate Israel’s willingness to compromise in the interests of making peace, the Israeli government ordered that all Israeli settlements in the Gaza Strip be evacuated and many of the communities demolished. This video documents the final moments of the community of Netzarim, which was the last to be evacuated from the Gush Katif block of settlements. Some of the residents, hopeful to the very last moments, continued building until they were forced to leave, while other gathered in the synagogue to sing and pray together. “Whoever has faith can continue,” said one resident. “Whatever God does is for the good, so this is probably part of a larger plan that will bring us forward.”
