Just a plain old-fashioned pos.

Great story of the Jews fleeing the hatred of the Nazis only to find themselves hated by the Muslims.

A movie glorifying the period of history when Jews were moving into Palestine from Europe by the thousands, beginning the long process of ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian Arabs who lived there. Naturally all sympathies live with the victors who earned the sympathy of the world by being holocausted by Germany and hated by all the other Christian nations. So when they ravaged the homes and lands of the people who possessed the land until then the 'free' world of Europe and America applauded. They'd rather have the Jews safely in the Middle East than in their own countries. That's the side of history this movie doesn't tell.

Factual, except for the romance, which may or may not be true. Great movie, but hard to understand unless one knows the history. I had to explain it to my wife.
