Ilana has a radio broadcast that talks about the idea that certain deaths are meaningful and others are not.
Part 1: Why do you think some deaths are more meaningful than others?
Part 2: Why do you think Ilana condemns the British government for the death of John Dawson?
Part 3: Isn't Ilana's logic incorrect? Why does she praise a death that the Movement does not necessarily want to occur?

Part 3: Do you think these five have just been lucky or has divine intervention played a part?
