A new film with a provocative title probes politics, mixed-race kids and the prospect of peace in the Arab-Israeli conflict.

According to documents released by the IAF’s archives, which is due to be published later this week, it was the U.S.S.R. that aided Israeli officials to finally expose the identity of the mystery planes, after a U.S. U-2 espionage plane was shot down over Soviet soil. Read more.
