I have spent a year abroad in Israel..traveling..studying..etc. I've had many conversations with Israeli soldiers and those on the verge of service. They aren't scared. As much as the media makes you think so, Israel is not a "war zone." It is a peaceful place. Yes, more bombs go off in this country than many others in our world today, however, everyday life here is pretty normal. I have been here for 8 months or so, and I have never been scared. This country is SAFE. It's going to be a culture shock going back home and not having to open my purse when going into the mall. This conflict is one of those vicious cycles that never ends unless one side concedes to the other. I couldn't be sure on this, but I don't see this conflict getting resolved in my lifetime and I'm 19. It's a damn shame, but Israelis are getting by. I think this film, however I haven't seen it in a while, is good. I don't think it necessarily shows what's really going on in Israeli society. Time to go, enjoy. Yom Tov.
