A Devious Film Beautiful? Inspiring? Wonderful? I'm amazed at such comments. This movie sets out to reconstruct and deconstruct Israel's past in the most devious, cynical and insidious way. For example, the drawn-out scene of Israeli 12 yr olds at Ammunition Hill re-enacting scenes from the past. Comparison is invited with Hamas training their children to kill Israelis. The man whose home is filled with clutter from the past is told to clean it with Nazi efficiency in order to make it marketable. The messenger who rides through the poor Arab quarter crashes into the separation wall. The slur "nigger go home"on the wall of the Ethiopian Church begs the conclusion: Israelis are racists. And of course there are the ill-starred Palestinian lovers. Puh-leeeze! There is nothing of beauty in this film, only meaninglessness. Is present day Jerusalem shown to have any joy? Not once! Reply

Not inciting at all. Wrong. Reply

inspiring B"H
To me it is inspiring. I have never been to Israel (yet?!) it makes me feel welcome and at home. As from a creative perspective, it shows tenderness, intimacy and love. Yes a stone is a stone, but in the context of ' footsteps of Jerusalem' the footage of feet walking on the streets is a very creative way of showing 'the real' life in the streets. and yes, a wall is a wall, is a wall, is a wall; but there is no wall than The Wall.
Shalom. Reply

@liela If you look at the world with a "taking" perspective, then yes - showing footage like this can be "harmful" by inviting others to criticise and show hatred towards Israel and Jerusalem.
However, if you look at the world through the eyes of a "giver" then you can see how a video like this can be inspiring to Jews from all over the world.
It is a give and take situation - depending on your point of view. If you are one who wants to inspire others and help them grow in their Judaism and in their love for Torah and Israel, then this video can assist in just that.
It all just depends on which lens you look at the world with. Reply

terrorism should you not be affraid that by showing footage on internet (though I admit it doest't show much), you invite terrorist activities?
Also how would you that a person like me is truly interrested in Israel and doesnt have ulterior motives. Im asking because it really worries me Reply
