Perhaps the most daring moment on television came in 1998, the fiftieth anniversary of the State of Israel, with the airing of “Tekuma,” or “Rebirth,” a twenty-two-part documentary series that provoked criticism on the right for providing the Palestinian view of history alongside the Zionist narrative. The series included reporting on massacres, discrimination, expulsions. Ariel Sharon, in a letter of protest to the Minister of Education, called for the series to be banned from state schools, complaining that it “distorts the history of the rebirth and undermines any moral basis for the establishment of the State of Israel and its continued existence.” Two decades later, the Israeli public is generally less welcoming of such self-examination.
