The Wanted 18 Cows, Economic Resistance, and Israel
The Wanted 18 shows how the Palestinian right to develop, which is a basic human right, is denied. Although the end of the film is painful and bitter as it shows the disastrous impact of the "Oslo Peace Accords", signed in 1993 between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization, on the Palestinian struggle for freedom and self-determination, however it is also inspiring. It is inspiring because it shows the problems that need to be addressed in order to reverse the conditions and processes of de-development.
In my opinion, The Wanted 18 illustrates three areas that Israel, as a colonial and occupying power, hates to see. These areas are: Palestinian sovereignty; resistance and mobilization, and self-reliance.
