Charged with overseeing Israel’s war on terror-both Palestinian and Jewish- the head of the Shin Bet, Israel’s Secret Service is present at the crossroads of every decision made. For the first time ever six former heads of the agency agreed to share their insights and reflect publicly on their actions and decisions. The Gatekeepers offers an exclusive account of the sum of their successes and failures. It validates the reasons that each man individually and the six as a group came to reconsider their hard-line positions and advocate a conciliatory approach toward their enemies based on a two-state solution.

This is a riveting documentary, replete with rare footage of Israel’s war on terror and candid interviews with the hard men who were entrusted to serve and protect Israel against the internal danger of terrorism, but who clearly make the point that Israel must negotiate a settlement with the Palestinians. They describe how they commanded and executed a ruthless war against those who would plot or carry out acts of violence against Israel within its borders. They have few illusions concerning the future and imply that the current occupation of the West Back cannot continue not only because of the latent danger of a bloody intifada but more frightening is the erosion of Israel’s soul if not its humanity. Perhaps the most riveting segments concern the rise of the extreme right in Israel which has little hesitation to employ terror as a legitimate political weapon. Witness the murder then Prime Minister Yitzak Rabin, the attacks on Palestinian mayors, as examples. One comes away from watching the Gatekeepers with a question, will Israel survive as a democracy or will it slide down a road to internal division, right vs. left/liberal, secular vs. Orthodox, imperial occupier or peaceful coexistence.
