A government represents the authoritative figure within a society, just as our parents represent the authoritative figures in our lives. For one to live in fear and refrain from criticism of one's parents is not a healthy reciprocal relationship. Sometimes it's a necessity. However, the documentary " The Gatekeepers " had implied an incorrect assumption or direct link, (and this is where a filmmaker predisposes some creativity in a documentary) surrounded by the negative incitements towards the political left and the eventual assassination of former PM Yitzchak Rabin at a peace rally. There's no definitive proof of this being the case. The integrity and honesty of those officials interviewed should make most Israelis proud of such introspective analysis of the past political - security concerns. That's how improvements develop but it's more ideal to be preventative. Those interviewed all advocated a peaceful diplomatic resolution, not militarally - their area of expertise.
