The film
NO Where To Hide........No Where to Run........
wants to include views from all sides so that a fair cross sections of all points of view is shown and each individual can make up their own mind about the wrongs and rights of the conflict.. and what is the best way to solve the conflict so that no more innocent women, men and children are killed from either side of the conflict.... so that there will be a long last lasting peace in that region of the world between all races and all religions....the concern is that no matter which point of view you hold as to the wrongs and right of the Israel-Gaza Conflict, if it carries on much longer, it has the potential to create a third world war and help ignite a new round of world wide hatred in the world between various people in different races and religions and as
Annie Lenox

stated to the BBC...

        "
 that both sides were "wrong" and a total ceasefire was the only sensible solution."

Annie said"the intervention of President George W Bush, who has described Hamas's rocket attacks as an "act of terror", was not helping the situation."She said: "The problem is, from my perspective, they are pouring petrol onto the fire."They have to sit down. This is a small window of opportunity just before things kick off."For every one person killed in Gaza, they are creating 100 suicide bombers. It's not just about Gaza, it's about all of us.Former model Bianca Jagger

and singer Annie Lennox have supported the action, and have also called on American president-elect Barack Obama

Actor Paul Kaye, whose mother-in-law was killed in a Hamas rocket attack, told the BBC he had experienced the situation from an Israeli point of view.

"It's terrifying," he said. "My wife was trapped in a supermarket in a rocket attack. I was with my sons in Ashkelon station, holding them, waiting for a rocket to land and shutting my eyes thinking 'is this it?'

"So I think it's important to remember that mothers fleeing rocket attacks holding their children have the same fear on both sides of the border

    Los Angeles City Hall, shown here in 1931, was built in 1928 and was the tallest structure in the city until 1964, when height restrictions were removed.
    Downtown Los Angeles saw heavy development from the 1980s to 1990s, including the construction of some of the city's tallest skyscrapers.

    Los Angeles

    (pronounced /l?s 'ænd??l?s/ los-AN-j?-l?s; Spanish pronunciation: [los 'a?xeles]) is the largest city in the state of California and the Western United States as well as second largestUnited States.[1] Often abbreviated as L.A. and nicknamed The City of Angels, Los Angeles is rated an alpha world city, has an estimated population of 3.8 million[2] and spans over 498.3 square miles (1,290.6 km2) in Southern California. Additionally, the Los Angeles metropolitan area is home to nearly 12.9 million residents,[3]globe and speak 224 different languages. Los Angeles is the seatLos Angeles County, the most populated and one of the most diversecounties[4] in the United States. Its inhabitants are known as "Angelenos" (/ænd??'li?no?z/). who hail from all over the of in the

    Los Angeles was founded September 4, 1781, by Spanish governor Felipe de Neve as El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles de la Porciúncula (The Village of Our Lady, the Queen of the Angels of Porziuncola).[5] It became a part of Mexico in 1821, following its independence from Spain. In 1848, at the end of the Mexican-American War, Los Angeles and California were purchased as part of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, thereby becoming part of the United States; Mexico retained the territory of Baja California. Los Angeles was incorporated as a municipality on April 4, 1850, five months before California achieved statehood.

    Los Angeles is one of the world's centers of business, international trade, entertainment, culture, media, fashion, science, technology, and education. It is home to renowned institutions covering a broad range of professional and cultural fields, and is one of the most substantial economic engines within the United States. Los Angeles leads the world in producing popular entertainment — such as motion picture, video games, television, and recorded music — which forms the base of its international fame and global status.

    History of Loas Angelos

    The Los Angeles coastal area was first settled by the Tongva (or Gabrieleños) and Chumash Native American tribes hundreds of years ago. The first Europeans arrived in 1542 under Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo, a Portuguese-born explorer who claimed the area as the City of God for the Spanish Empire. However, he continued with his voyage and did not establish a settlement.[6]Gaspar de Portola, along with Franciscan missionary Juan Crespí, reached the present site of Los Angeles on August 2, 1769. Crespí noted that the site had the potential to be developed into a large settlement.[7]

    In 1771, Franciscan friar Junípero Serra built the Mission San Gabriel Arcangel near Whittier Narrows, in what is now called San Gabriel Valley.[8] In 1777, the new governor of California, Felipe de Neve, recommended to Antonio María de Bucareli y Ursúa, viceroy of New Spain that the site noted by Juan Crespí be developed into a pueblo. The town was officially founded on September 4, 1781, by a group of forty-four settlers known as "Los Pobladores." Tradition has it that on this day they were escorted by four Spanish colonial soldiers, two priests from the Mission and Governor de Neve. The town was named El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles del Río de Porciúncula (The Town of Our Lady the Queen of the Angels on the Porciúncula River).[9]Hispanic culture that had emerged in northern Mexico among a racially mixed society. Two-thirds of the settlers were mestizo or mulatto, and therefore, had African and Indian ancestry. More importantly, they were intermarrying.[10] The settlement remained a small ranch town for decades, but by 1820 the population had increased to about 650 residents.[11] Today, the pueblo is commemorated in the historic district of Los Angeles Pueblo Plaza and Olvera Street, the oldest part of Los Angeles.[12]

    New Spain achieved its independence from the Spanish Empire in 1821, and the pueblo continued as a part of Mexico. During Mexican rule, Governor Pío Pico, made Los Angeles Alta California's regional capital. Mexican rule ended during the Mexican–American War: Americans took control from the Californios after a series of battles, culminating with the signing of the Treaty of Cahuenga on January 13, 1847.

    Railroads arrived when the Southern Pacific completed its line to Los Angeles in 1876.[13] Oil was discovered in 1892, and by 1923 Los Angeles was producing one-quarter of the world's petroleum.[14]

    By 1900, the population had grown to more than 102,000 people,[15] putting pressure on the city's water supply.[16] 1913's completion of the Los Angeles Aqueduct, under the supervision of William Mulholland, assured the continued growth of the city.

    In the 1920s, the motion picture and aviation industries flocked to Los Angeles. In 1932, with population surpassing one million,[17]Summer Olympics.

    The post-war years saw an even greater boom, as urban sprawlSan Fernando Valley.[18] In 1969, Los Angeles became one of the birthplaces of the Internet, as the first ARPANET transmission was sent from UCLA to SRI in Menlo Park.[19]

    Also in the 1980s, Los Angeles became the center of the heavy metal music scene, especially glam metal bands.[20] In 1984, the city hosted the Summer Olympic Games for the second time. Despite being boycotted by 14 Communist countries, the 1984 Olympics became the most financially successful in history, and only the second Olympics to turn a profit – the other being the 1932 Summer Olympics, also held in Los Angeles.

    During the remaining decades of the 20th century, the city was plagued by increasing gang warfare, drug trades, and police corruption. Racial tensions erupted again in 1992 with the Rodney King controversy and the large-scale riots that followed the acquittal of his police attackers. In 1994, the 6.7 Northridge earthquake shook the city, causing $12.5 billion in damage and 72 deaths.[21]

    Voters defeated efforts by the San Fernando Valley and Hollywood[22]

    Gentrification and urban redevelopment have occurred in many parts of the city, most notably Hollywood, Koreatown, Silver Lake, Echo Park and Downtown.[23]

    Geography

    Los Angeles is irregularly shaped and covers a total area of 498.3 square miles (1,291 km2), comprising 469.1 square miles (1,214.9 km²) of land and 29.2 square miles (75.7 km²) of water. The city extends for 44 miles (71 km) longitudinally and for 29 miles (47 km) latitudinally. The perimeter of the city is 342 miles (550 km). It is the only major city in the United States bisected by a mountain range.

    The highest point in Los Angeles is Mount Lukens, also called Sister Elsie Peak.[24] Located at the far reaches of the northeastern San Fernando Valley, it reaches a height of 5,080 ft (1,548 m). The major river is the Los Angeles River, which begins in the Canoga Park district of the city and is largely seasonal. The river is lined in concrete for almost its entire length as it flows through the city into nearby Vernon on its way to the Pacific Ocean.

    Geology

    Los Angeles is subject to earthquakes due to its location in the Pacific Ring of Fire. The geologic instability produces numerous fault lines both above and below ground, which altogether cause approximately 10,000 earthquakes every year.[25] One of the major fault lines is the San Andreas Fault. Located at the boundary between the Pacific Plate and the North American Plate, it is predicted to be the source of Southern California's next big earthquake.[26] Major earthquakes to have hit the Los Angeles area include the 2008 Chino Hills earthquake, 1994 Northridge earthquake, the 1987 Whittier Narrows earthquake, the 1971 San Fernando earthquake near Sylmar, and the 1933 Long Beach earthquake. Nevertheless, all but a few quakes are of low intensity and are not felt.[25] The most recent earthquake felt was the 5.4 Chino Hills earthquake on July 29th 2008. Parts of the city are also vulnerable to Pacific Ocean tsunamis; harbor areas were damaged by waves from the Valdivia earthquake in 1960.[27] The Los Angeles basin and metropolitan area are also at risk from blind thrust earthquakes.[28]


    UK protests over Gaza air strikes


    A series of demonstrations is taking place across the UK to try and stop the Israeli air strikes on Gaza.

    The protests are being held at 18 locations including Portsmouth, Manchester, Hull, London and Glasgow.

    They come after several days of smaller demonstrations around the country, including outside the Israeli Embassy in Kensington, west London.

    Israel's government has said it is defending its citizens from Palestinian rocket attacks.

    'No defence'

    The government launched the offensive after Palestinian rockets were fired into Israel's southern regions, breaking a six-month truce.

    But Lyndsey German, of the Stop the War Coalition, said Israel's actions were not "a defence measure".

    She said there would be "tens of thousands" of people in London alone and this "is just the start of the campaign".

    "If there is an invasion of Gaza, as looks likely, by the Israeli army, if the blockade continues with people suffering from shortages of food and medicine, then I think this will grow.

    "This is Israel being aggressive, this is Israel attacking one and a half million people who already live in great poverty, in great difficulty."

    More than 30 organisations, including the British Muslim Initiative and the Stop the War Coalition, have worked together to organise the series of protests.

    The BBC's Barnie Choudhury estimated there were 7,000 to 10,000 people marching along the Embankment in central London towards Trafalgar Square. Some chanted "Free, free Palestine" and "Israel terrorists".

    On Whitehall, hundreds of shoes were thrown at the gates of Downing Street, echoing the protest of an Iraqi journalist who threw his shoes at US President George W Bush. A firework was also reportedly thrown at police.

    Elsewhere, an estimated 2,000 people marched through Manchester and in Portsmouth, nearly 500 people took to the streets. Police said there were about 500 demonstrators in Glasgow and 600 in Edinburgh.

    Former model Bianca Jagger and singer Annie Lennox have supported the action, and have also called on American president-elect Barack Obama to speak up against the bombardment.

    Ms Lennox told the BBC that both sides were "wrong" and a total ceasefire was the only sensible solution.

    She said the intervention of President George W Bush, who has described Hamas's rocket attacks as an "act of terror", was not helping the situation.

    She said: "The problem is, from my perspective, they are pouring petrol onto the fire.

    "They have to sit down. This is a small window of opportunity just before things kick off.

    "For every one person killed in Gaza, they are creating 100 suicide bombers. It's not just about Gaza, it's about all of us.

    Actor Paul Kaye, whose mother-in-law was killed in a Hamas rocket attack, told the BBC he had experienced the situation from an Israeli point of view.

    "It's terrifying," he said. "My wife was trapped in a supermarket in a rocket attack. I was with my sons in Ashkelon station, holding them, waiting for a rocket to land and shutting my eyes thinking 'is this it?'

    "So I think it's important to remember that mothers fleeing rocket attacks holding their children have the same fear on both sides of the border."

    Ceasefire calls

    The UN has reported that some 2,000 Palestinians have been wounded since the airstrikes began last Saturday.

    More than 400 people have been killed including 60 civilians - 34 of them children.

    Four Israelis - three civilians and one soldier - have been killed by rockets fired into Israel from Gaza, which have hit towns up to 25 miles (40km) from the narrow coastal strip.

    Both sides have so far resisted international calls for a ceasefire.

    'Self-defeating'

    Foreign Office Minister Bill Rammell said the British government was "forcefully and strongly arguing" for an immediate end to the violence.

    "Israel has a right to respond proportionately, but we've been very, very clear that there has been a massive loss of innocent life... and that is unacceptable."

    Mr Rammell said Hamas rocket attacks on Israel were also "unacceptable", but stressed that "a reinvigorated political process" was the only route to a long-term solution.

    Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg branded Israel's strategy of bombing Gaza "self-defeating".

    "One of the great victims of the Israeli action is... moderate public opinion in the Arab world, upon whom Israeli long-term security interests depend," he said.

    He said the reaction of the EU had been "weak" and said member states should have threatened to sever trade links with Israel if the bombardment continued.

    Chairwoman of the Jewish Labour Movement, MP Louise Ellman, defended Israel's actions.

    She told the BBC: "The scale of human suffering of the people in Gaza is deeply distressing but the responsibility lies with Hamas."

    She described the militant group as an "organisation that does not accept the existence of Israel" and one that "refuses to be involved in negotiations" that would result in a two-state solution in the region.

    For every one person killed in Gaza, they are creating 100 suicide bombers. It's not just about Gaza, it's about all of us
