The Jewish UndergroundShai Gal - 90'
It took the Israeli secret service 4 years to put their hands on the Jewish Underground, a right-wing terrorist organization. After carrying out several successful attacks on Muslims in the early 1980s, the group plotted to blow up the Dome of the Rock, the destruction of the holy site could have sparked a nuclear war in the Middle East—perhaps even a third World War. Director Shai Gal reconstructs the events in the form of a detective story with dramatizations and interviews with key figures, including the perpetrators, who claim they have nothing to hide. Following the perpetrators to the present days, he finds that the Jewish Underground members paved their way into the heart of Israel's current political power. In the current state of politics worldwide, where extremism is becoming more common and the state of things seems so volatile, this film is more relevant than ever.
