The film that proves that the extreme left has forgotten what it is to be Jewish Israel today


"Hebron: The Control Laboratory", HOT8's docu, seeks to portray the Palestinians solely as victims, and the army as "complicated up to the neck" in the control laboratory that is supposed to one day simulate the reality in the territories of Judea and Samaria

Dear Hot viewers, you have nothing to join the "Breaking the Silence" tour, from today you can enjoy this mind engineering from the living room at home.

To the credit of the film's creators, Noam Shizaf and Idit Abrahami, it was said that "Hebron: The Control Laboratory" is a film that does not hide the propaganda it was sent to produce.

From the first frame, the film takes you on a tour of the far-left organization in Hebron, during which you will only hear about the poor Arab side, about abusing soldiers from the eighties, including the famous joke of "the settlers are poisoning their water wells".

Oh yes, and you should imagine that this is what life will look like in all of Judea and Samaria.

The city where Avraham Abino lived and his grave is still found in the Cave of the Patriarchs, is at least important to both nations.

The settlers who return to repopulate the city after that massacre in 1988 are brave messengers of the Jewish people - this was not an extreme hobby of the Levinger couple. A huge, religious, secular and traditional public sees them as heroes. Instead, the film is careful to characterize them as an illusory and messianic thorn in the side of The innocent Palestinians.

The Palestinians and commanders who ruled Hebron, who tell the story of Shuhada Street, serve two purposes: to paint the Palestinians solely as victims, and the army as "complicated to the neck" in the laboratory of control that should one day simulate the reality in the territories of Judea and Samaria.

They did not see fit to sit in front of the camera one Jew or one commander to explain why Hebron is different in its route and its importance to the people of Israel.

In the "control laboratory" the manipulations are so transparent: the struggle for the holy places of the Jewish people is presented as a messianic whim of extremists.

The settlers came to abuse the Palestinians, when the Arabs are locked up in their houses - the Jews are having fun, dancing and putting in Torah scrolls.

It is understood that the poster girl for such a film, the settler who teases her neighbor while shouting "shit" and the yellowing archive clips in which IDF soldiers brag about spraying a Palestinian taxi for fun, turn the stomach - but they belong to a different reality and to the times when they "break the silence" There was also a moral organization that justifies the crazy funding it receives from foreign governments.

In order to understand in what movie cut off from his roots Shizaf himself lives, I read the words he said after he refused to serve in Judea and Samaria.

"With those among us who still think that in the name of the divine promise about the Land of Israel we should - or are able - to establish apartheid here."

The only apartheid figure is that the Jews live in Hebron in the real ghetto and only in 3% of the city area are they allowed to lead a life.

The separation between the peoples on Shuhada Street is of course not on a racial basis, but a clear security one: dozens of terrorist attacks and murders have led to a situation where the IDF (with the approval of the High Court) creates a separation that prevents bloodshed.

An ultra-left creator can't really produce a proper document about such a place.

He does not understand the importance of being present in the city of the ancestors, and when you remember the phrase "the left has forgotten what it is to be Jewish", that is exactly what is meant.

It is unfathomable how a film that tries to show empathy for the Palestinian people fails to understand the importance of the place for the Jewish people from which it grew.

Ironically, in this propaganda film this is what occupation really looks like: an effort to conquer the consciousness of a people who do not all think like you, and for whom Hebron is beyond a place where they are forced to make reserves.

So maybe before we talk about leaving the territories, let's get out of the superficiality a bit.
