This movie was a major disappointment. Instead of being a critical analysis (animated or not) of the tragic events in 1982 at Sabra and Satilla refugee camps, it turns out to be an apologist's, self-serving account of Israel's role in the massacre of the Palestinian refugee camps in southern Lebanon, camps created by the Israeli ethnic cleansing of 750,000 Palestinians (while murdering
