Quotes

Golda Meir: 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....

Above average TV movie
3 November 2000 | by agentr63See all my reviews

Very good film, above average than most TV movies. The first-rate acting and storyline makes this very watchable, from beginning to end. You actually feel for the characters, and identify with their burdens and shortcomings. Highly recommend. I only regret it's not out on video.
