I think the Summary in IMDB is a little misleading...
7 October 2001 | by (Marlborough Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

Re the summary of this movie... It is a few years since I saw it, but I do not recall any of the "anti-war" or "anti Israel" sentiment suggested in the summary. Of course one takes movies like this with a pinch of salt from a historical point of view, but the message I got from it was distinctly "Don't Mess With Israel(is)".
