Description When many people think of Israel, it is often in terms of modern war or ancient religion. But there is much more to the Jewish state then missiles and prayers. In his debut as a documentary filmmaker, adult-film entrepreneur and political columnist Michael Lucas examines a side of Israel that is too often overlooked: its thriving gay community. Undressing Israel features interviews with a diverse range of local men, including a gay member of Israel's parliament, a trainer who served openly in the army, a young Arab-Israeli journalist, and a pair of dads raising their kids. Lucas also visits Tel Aviv's vibrant nightlife scene-and a same-sex wedding-in this guided tour to a country that emerged as a pioneer for gay integration and equality.

    They love to tell us how great their country is and how progressive and prosperous they are, while at the same time demanding billions in "aid" from the US. So far, as of 2013, Israel owes EVERY SINGLE MAN WOMAN AND CHILD IN AMERICA OVER $400,000!!! EVERY SINGLE ONE. When are you going to pay us back? I mean, since everything is so awesome there and you are all so rich and happy.... You fucking hypocritical psychopathic con artists. When are people going to wake up and realize the political ruse Israel has been engaged in for 60 years?! Its nothing but a country full of people who love to claim to be victims, while proclaiming their prestige and quality of life, and yet still demanding "aid" for no good reason. Con artists extraordinaire.

    there was a terreorist attack in an LGTB center and with all Israeli Intelligence the perpetrator has never been caught , that's in a country that pride itself of Mossad Intelligence, it's clear that they don't want to solve the crime, is just a bubble in which they live , sorry Israel.

    So how do you suggest people should live then? Not party? Not have fun? And for what reason? I've lived next to Tel Aviv and why on earth should I be insulted? People party elsewhere in Israel too you know Tel Aviv is just a bigger city so there more happening and people from out of town come there too.. It's like the cultural and financial capital of Israel so how do you suggest it should be then?

    Isn't it a bit hypocritical, ironic and even mean that people have built this Americanized, Westernized rich party city in the middle of a war-torn area? I would feel insulted to live next to Tel Aviv.
  • ASMR Whispr 2013-06-18 19:33:37
    That's not true about the parade. Gay pride parades in Brazil are also organized by the city. Also, I thought everybody knew Tel Aviv is supposed to be a "bubble" of Western city life within the Middle East. There is even a movie called The Bubble!
