The Iron Wall is a 2006 documentary film about the establishment of Israeli settlements in the West Bank, which, the film argues, is a strategy for permanent occupation of the territory.  Produced by the Palestinian Agricultural Relief Committee and Palestinians for Peace and Democracy, it was the “Official Selection” of the Al-Jazeera Television Production Festival.
The Iron Wall follows the timeline of the settlements  and examines their effect on the peace process. Settlements and related infrastructures are impacting every aspect of life for all Palestinians from land confiscation, theft of natural resources,… creation of an apartheid-like system, to the devastating impact in regards to the future of the the region and the prospect of the peace process.”   ” Israel continues to both expand its settlements and settle new areas in the West Bank despite pressure to desist from the international community.” 
 The film  features interviews with noted peace activists and political analysts, both Israeli and Palestinian, including  Jeff Halper, Akiva Eldar and Hind Khoury.   The film also covers the controversial construction of the Israeli West Bank Barrier.
The Iron Wall features English, Arabic and Hebrew, and has English subtitles. It is named after an essay of the same name.
