Consensus extends its full support to IDF combat soldiers in the cultural arena. In 2013 “Five Cameras,” a film purporting to document the Palestinian struggle against the separation fence, was deliberately and systematically edited in order to promote the agenda of the film’s producer by portraying IDF soldiers as cruel and malicious.
