[Eli finds Yigal reading from a prayer book]
Pvt. Yigal: I promised my grandfather. You know, until he dies.
Elihu Goldfarb: Yeah. You'll find another excuse later. It's a waste of time praying to God. Look what He's done to us.
Pvt. Yigal: Count you blessings, Elihu.
Elihu Goldfarb: I count my enemies, my sins, and my cash money, that's how I know where I stand.

Excellent movie about the Six-Day War !
7 June 2002 | by juliodennisSee all my reviews

This movie could be consider as one of the few movies that described the historic moment that israeli people lived in Israel during the Six-Day War, especially because they were surrounded by a great number of enemies , and their determination to remain like a Jewish State allowed to them to defeat it. I watched the movie like 20 years ago, and in that time, I Got the oportunity to record in my Betamax , and I still have it with me, and when I have time, I enjoy watching it again. The best scene could be when the commandos destroyed the radar station from Egyptian Army.
