A documentary by Israel Television on the country’s 50-year history came under fire from conservative politicians who want the 22-part series pulled off the air for being too sympathetic to the Palestinians. Communications Minister Limor Livnat said in a letter to Israel Television’s board of directors that the show’s producers should be rallying around the flag, not presenting “the other side in a favorable light.” The makers of the documentary countered that they wanted to show the “pain on both sides.”
