Produced by Haaretz, a liberal Israeli news source, this video (04:16) presents interviews with two Israelis who fought in the War of Independence and have very different perspectives on the war and the state of Israeli today. One man, who was involved in the clandestine immigration of Holocaust survivors to Palestine and the successful battle in Wadi Ara, is grateful for and happy with today's Israel, despite its problems. The other, who was miraculously spared from the tragic death of 35 soldiers in Gush Etzion, expresses deep frustration with the Arab refugee problem and political corruption.
