The Gatekeepers - Shin Bet (ISA - Israeli Security Agency) Documentary

Have not seen it but it looks interesting

The five former heads of Israel's Secret Service exclusively reflect on their successes and failures to maintain security, even while violence flares up again, this time in the Gaza Strip. These five men individually and as a group have come to reconsider their hard-line positions and advocate a conciliatory approach toward their enemies based on a two-state solution.

Re: The Gatekeepers - Shin Bet (ISA - Israeli Security Agency) Documentary

It's interesting that Israel has two films nominated for Best Documentary at the Oscars, "5 Broken Cameras", and "The Gatekeepers".

But I can't see a lot of our Political forum members watching them back to back because their heads would explode.

Here's an interesting article by J.J. Goldberg:

"The Oscar Goes to — Israel's Dirty Laundry"

I really want to see this but it is not playing anywhere near me and does not appear to be available on the internet

FYI, a longer version is currently airing as a five-part miniseries on Israel’s state-owned Channel 1 Television. Each episode is followed by a round table discussion. Hopefully, this longer version will makes it's way to DVD/Blu-ray at some point.

The film version will be released next week on July 9th:

Saw it in the movies and thought it was good. Some disturbing stuff in here that makes the Israelis look bad.

This just popped up on Canadian Netflix. It's not currently on US Netflix but "5 Broken Cameras" is.

What a load of crap. StandWithUs is part of the Israel lobby in the US and the authors just keep spewing the same tired pro-Israel propaganda. So did a bunch of others, some without actually seeing the film... Intellectually dishonest my ass. All 6 of the former Shin Bet chiefs interviewed backed the movie 100%. And a number of prominent Jewish figures, despite expressing their discomfort at watching the film did as well.

Stop it with the preemptive knee-jerk crap (see, I used knee-jerk again!) and just watch the damn film. Both of them while you're at it.

Yes, we wouldn't want to be exposed to an opposing view or a different perspective on a topic. That would be knee jerk and preemptive! Beginning to sound familiar, you should probably come up with some new material.

‘The Gatekeepers’ is a harsh portrayal of life outside the ghetto of self-denial'

For lovers of Israel, the Oscar-nominated film is like a waterboarding of the soul. It is relentless. And It should be required viewing for all.

"Ghetto of self-denial", that's you. Having your views challenged will do you good. So stop acting like an AIPAC lapdog and wake me up when you've seen the film and can come up with your own opinion...

I will watch the film, because unlike you I'm not afraid of of challenging my views.
