Jews? Who are we? For 2000 years, we have been born with a faith and a hope. But you, you Avner, were born with something else. You were born here. You can say to the world... "I am a Jew" and also "This is my home". We have a homeland again. A Jewish State. The State of Israel. It exists to protect us from our enemies and provide us with a haven in this world where we can live in peace. But they will not let us live in peace. Once again, they're killing and terrorizing Jews all over the world....

With the events of 9/11 and the middle east suicide bombings,this is still a topical movie.There seem to be 2 versions of this movie,strive for the longer one.Its a HBO film that I saw on a different cable station and then bought the film on EBAY.The film on e-bay was a unedited still in its original box for 86 minutes but with a few scenes cut out.Maybe there was a European vs US issue?At any rate the scenes cut out hightened as point of view in favor of Isreal which I share.This film is propaganda to be sure,but isn't all film? In a powerful scene that was shortened to cut out this statement,Golda Mair the Isreal Premire is explaining to the new Mossad recruit why their cause is rightous.This paraphrase was cut from the short version where she says,"The killed our children while the world played games" Its a haunting film.
