  • Trivia

    • In this episode, Donna visits the settlement of Kfar Darom. The issue of evacuation arrises, and the settlers say that they will never leave it because they believe it's their moral obligation to stay there. In reality, several years later the IDF began evacuating settlers in the settlements surrounding Gaza, and Kfar Darom was the last stand of the settlers, who barricaded themselves in a synagogue in town and refused to be removed from the town. Eventually, the IDF broke the barricade and evacuated the settlers by force.
