Synopsis

It took the Israeli secret service four years to put their hands on the Jewish Underground, a rightwing terrorist organization. After carrying out several attacks on Muslims in the early 1980s, the group plotted to blow up the Dome of the Rock, the destruction of the holy site could have sparked a nuclear war in the Middle East—perhaps even a third World War. Director Shai Gal reconstructs the events in the form of a detective story with dramatizations and interviews with key figures. He finds that the Jewish Underground members paved their way into the heart of Israel's current political power.

The Jewish Underground - Shai Gal Director Shai Gal will attend both screenings. He is a correspondent for Israel's leading investigative television program.
