A propaganda film produced by Histadrut to persuade the global public opinion in favor of Israel’s actions in the Suez Crisis.
An Israeli citizen sends a letter to the United Nations, in which he describes the chain of events that led to the Suez Crisis. Testimonies of fedayeen attacks’ survivors, the harassment of Israeli ships in the Suez Canal, and the Arab anti-Semitic propaganda serve the write of the letter to justify Israel’s military campaign in the Suez Crisis. Using excerpts from a 1955 speech of Israel’s ambassador to the UN Abba Eban, the writer proves Israel’s restrained policy in the face of Egypt’s arming.
