A Movie About 1982 and the Soul of Israel

A Movie About 1982 and the Soul of Israel

Here is a must read from an Israeli patriot who was devastated by the movie and his own depression over leadership and the endless cycle of war and revenge. Please read and react.  I have been devastated and cleansed by the movie for a week. While much of Burston’s analysis is powerful and convincing I do not think that ‘we live in post-moral world’. Israelis, and Palestinians, are indeed caught in a web of terrible leadership, with choices between corruption on the one side, and uncorrupted, clear unadulterated violence–and suicide–on the other. But this is not a post-moral world. It seems that way to those inside this insanity, but to those outside morality is alive and well, and the answers are not as complicated as leadership on all sides has made them out to be: Respect your enemy, never surround an enemy on all sides with no way out, be kind to civilians, never kill children, compromise, remember the past but live more for the future, face your own dark side, believe in equality, forgive, seek peace even when it hurts, even when it is risky, as if peace were a name of God. These are moral values that millions of people around the globe are crying out for Israelis and Arabs, Jews and Muslims, to hear. We are not in a post-moral world–the Holy Land is, the land that gave us the prophets who stood for all those moral values. The land is asleep, waiting for its inhabitants to wake up from their dark dreams.
