It would seem that it's also one of the easiest conflicts for practising the art of portraying, in a 5-minute film, one side as completely blameless and the other as having only murderous intentions. It seems to me that (1) a similar film could easily be made supporting the surrounding Arab/Muslim countries which would be equally beguiling, and (2) the one-sided tone of the film may be a good illustration of the completely blinkered view shown by both sides in the conflict and is in itself the reason why the Middle East Problem is so hard to solve now, irrespective of the historical events since 1948.
