The Prime Ministers Part 2: Soldiers and Peacemakers

It follows the experiences of Ambassador Avner during the years he worked for Prime Ministers Yitzhak Rabin and Menachem Begin. The film examines Rabin’s election as the country’s first native born Israeli leader in 1974, the first bilateral treaty between Israel and Egypt in 1975, the dramatic events surrounding Israel’s rescue of hostages in Entebbe in 1976, Rabin’s tense relationship with newly elected President Jimmy Carter and Rabin’s subsequent downfall in a financial scandal involving his wife, Leah. Just like the book, the movie focuses on Ambassador Avner’s time working under Menachem Begin. It looks at the drama behind Anwar Sadat’s historic visit to Jerusalem, the Camp David negotiating process, the difficult relationship between President Carter and Menachem Begin as well as the tense relations that arose between Begin and President Reagan over the 1982 Lebanon War. The documentary also recounts Begin’s decline after the death of his beloved wife, Aliza, and Yehuda Avner’s career as a diplomat in the UK and Australia before returning to Israel to work with re-elected Yitzhak Rabin not long before his assassination in 1995. The Prime Ministers Part 2: Soldiers and Peacemakers is full of emotion and rich history with rare, never before seen photos and film footage.
