misleading and incomplete nonetheless interesting.
AS an Israeli I feel that the documentary has done much injustice to Israel in various levels.
While the myth of Messada does exist,it is only significant to the extremists. The vast majority of Israelis ,including the Right wingers/Moderates (by Israeli definition) don't think in Messada's terms.
Personally, I'm a peace activist (when I'm home).Needless to say that I sympathize with the daily difficulties the Palesinians go thru etc etc yet Mugrabi ignored the Israeli side i.e. living under a constant threat of terrorism ,smuggling bombs in (e.g.a Palesinian woman exploded a few minutes after avoiding a security check by claiming she had an operation in her leg and can't have a regular security check up because of the nail put inside) etc.
So unlike the well treated Samson's myth /Palestinians motivations ,I feel that the explanation to the Israelis' is incomplete.
Still,it's an interesting documentary and worth watching
