A new film based on a book of quotations by renowned political scientist Bernard Lewis, intelligent quotes has a strong presence in the Israeli intelligence community.
The movie, which premiered on Friday night at the Jerusalem Film Festival, is titled Intelligence for the Israelis: The Case for an Intelligent Nation.
The film will be produced by Tel Aviv-based producer Yossi Shmuel, who has produced numerous Israeli political documentaries, including an award-winning one on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in 2012.
The title of the film is a reference to the famous speech Lewis gave to a group of American academics during his tenure at the University of Chicago, where he spoke on the “cognitive gap” between the American public and Israel.
The film quotes Lewis as saying that Israeli intelligence is superior to that of the U.S., but it’s not a matter of intellect, he said.
“What we are witnessing is a fundamental shift in intelligence, a fundamental change in the nature of the world,” Lewis said in the speech.
“We are witnessing the emergence of an intelligence elite, a intelligence aristocracy, that is not a reflection of the average American but is the opposite.”
The film opens with the scene in the Tel Aviv offices of Israel’s military intelligence, known as the Shin Bet, where a senior officer is seen discussing intelligence gathering methods with a colleague.
He explains that the intelligence community’s job is to analyze data.
The former spy, who was not named in the film, also said that the Shin Beit is a secret organization that is responsible for analyzing intelligence, including data.
The Shin Bet has a wide range of responsibilities, including counterterrorism, cyber and counterintelligence, the latter of which is the responsibility of the Shin Hiva, or Security Council, according to Shmiel.
The spy explains that it’s important to analyze intelligence because, at a time when we are facing a serious existential threat, the ability to assess that threat is essential.
And we are doing that through our intelligence services, which have been the foundation of Israeli security since the Second World War.
The former spy adds that intelligence is “the glue that holds together the society.”
The Shin Beif is a branch of the military intelligence agency known as Mossad, which was created by the British in 1948, according the film.
The Shin Bet was later renamed the National Security Agency, or NSA.
The Mossad is Israel’s intelligence service, and is tasked with protecting Israel and its allies from threats and international threats.
The service also collects information about the activities of foreign powers, according Toav Ha’aretz, a leading Israeli newspaper.
Shmuel said that while the Shin Bites are not classified as intelligence services but are part of the intelligence sector, intelligence officers have the right to express their opinions without being labeled “intelligence officers” or being publicly criticized.
“We are not talking about the classification system,” Shmule said.
“They have the ability not to be considered intelligence officers and that’s something that we can’t change.”
The former officer said he believes the new film will have an impact on Israel.
“The Israeli public has a right to know,” he said, “but also we should have the freedom to express our opinions and express them honestly.”
According to the documentary, Israel has an “intelligence elite” that has become a “great threat to the entire world,” and it’s a matter for which “there is no question.”
The senior officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said that he believes that the rise of ISIS and other radical Islamic organizations is “due to the fact that Israel, and to a lesser extent Iran, is unable to contain them.”
He also added that Israel is unable, and will not, confront its internal security threat.
The current political climate has led to an increase in extremist activity, and this is why there are so many people, he added.
“I am very worried about the future of Israel,” he told the film’s director, Gideon Levy.
“It is the time of the Jewish state.
We must keep our minds open and do what is right, and I am optimistic that this movie will have a positive effect on this.”
