3 hours in Munich



If I can have one reflection after watching this movie, I would have asked... wouldn't it be better if Avner just stayed home and didn't track down the terrorists?

Granted, he was in a difficult position -- choosing whether he should be a hero for his country, or whether he should be a responsible father and husband taking care of his own family. But we can never ever fully understand the complexity of politician. And in fact, when Avener went back to Israel and the general packed his shoulder and said some praise words, and only those words, he was confused, disappointed... you know, he stood there for a long moment looking at the general -- a man who was supposed to be in the position to fight for his country and protect the civilians from terrorists, but this task ended up falling on his shoulder....

Moral can itself be very complex, isn't it? Especially when we all have our own values.

How true.

Let's "assassinate and terrorize the terrorists!" Sounds ridiculous but seems to be the popular strategy in today's world. Pretty sad.
