Munich and moving one side!

Last night I watched Munich at the Movie. It was about the kidnapping at Munich Olympic by some Palestinians. I liked this movie very much. “The movie opens with the now famous kidnapping of the 11 Israeli Athletes at the Munich Olympic Games in Germany….In this attack; all the 11 athletes and their abductors are killed. The movie then moves to Israel, which responds by creating an unofficial assassin band of five men who are given the task of killing the 11 Palestinians who were the masterminds behind the attack. This gang traces the corners of Europe to find them and kill them with much show and fanfare grabbing headlines everywhere.”

Munich tries to describe and show the Israeli vengeance against Palestinians involved in the 1972 and a circle of violations which doesn’t let any peaceful mechanism works and how people hurt in between. However Spielberg tries to remain objective; he sometimes goes towards the Israelis. He has said somewhere his movie is “prayer for piece”. But I think “If he really wanted to make it a prayer for peace he should have listened to both sides of the story and reflected reality, rather than serving the Zionist side alone.”

That’s a story of a young man who is recruited by Mossad to kill the Arab guys who were involved in this operation, and he kills some Arabs one by one. In between, We, as the audiences observe that how hate create hate and how the Palestinians feel discriminated and for them there is no way except fighting. That’s why makes for them Entefaze a way to take the Israelis behind the negotiation desks. That’s what is not understandable for the people in the west who are under the western media propaganda. There are some short dialogue about the roots and cores. But very little and that’s the point makes the movie something just to justify some crazy policies. In my opinions, that’s the rights of two nations to live peacefully and no one can ignore one side. However normally Western World sympathizes with Israel over the Palestinians, But there are some points to think how both sides are affected by the violence. We can ignore none of them. I suggest you to watch this movie.

I guess Entefaze is Farsi for intifada? I thought I might point this out for readers.
