Competing with "The Gatekeepers" is "Five Broken Cameras," another Israeli film. Both disclose the effects of the occupation on both Palestinians and Israeli. What these documentaries portray is no new revelation. A nation, a state has the same moral obligation as does a citizen, and a state that engages in crimes carries the same guilt as an individual who engages in crime. States do not stand above the law as was demonstrated in the Nuremberg trials. The execution of Osama Bin Laden was unfortunate---he could have been captured and tried as was Eichmann. The disclosures concerning actions Israel has taken are surfacing in the conscience of not only Israelis but have long ago surfaced in the consciences of billions of people around the globe. Since no nation is an island Israel's problems are every nation's problem. It is time for Israel to clean up its act, and for the U.S. to stop aiding and abetting crimes against humanity and war crimes.
