Jews, Third Time
Historical Documentaries • 1h 20m
As the State of Israel celebrates 70 years of independence, Rino Zror compares between the current Jewish state and the previous, historical ones. The resemblance is overwhelming.

Both kingdoms collapsed abruptly, within two years. What happened? Why? Can't the Jews hold on to their own sovereignty? Is it an inherent fault? And most importantly, how can the third sovereignty avoid such a fate?
