I thought this was quite good, sad that 20 years on the Israelis are still fighting with the Palestinians. In fact it made quite good background material on causes of the conflict for poor ill-educated old me. Lots of death, double-dealing and some of those lovely sneaky manoeuvres designed to throw a shadow off the scent, that usually involve three taxis and a friendly shopkeeper.
