Never before have Israelis seen Roni Daniel, their cocky onscreen military authority, so genuinely scared of the future.

 

 

“I’m not a young man,” said Daniel. “I grew up on Kibbutz Maoz Haim. I plowed the fields next to the Jordan River. They told us to go to the army — we went to the army. They told us to become officers, we became officers and commanders and served in the reserves. I went and fought all of the wars I was asked to fight. For the first time I feel — because of these kind of politics ... like I’m not sure that I want my children to live here.” 

[...] When Rambo is frightened, it’s probably time for everyone else to start worrying, too.
