At the end of the day, Eli was quite the hero and an outstanding human being.
3. Greatest hero in Israeli history
Talula ,   Tel Aviv   (10.08.19)
What an incredibly awesome man he was. It's time to bring his remains home for Nadia. Bess her. As for the film, no thanks. Just another cheapo tacky attempt at making money.
4. The Syrians will have a price to pay...

5. No greater hero than Eli
Peter ,   New Jersey, USA   (10.15.19)
May his holy soul have an ascent on high.
The greatest of men.
May his holy family have the comfort they deserve.
The greatest of families.
6. Sad end
Kevin Judah ,   Canberra, Australia   (11.08.19)
The Netflix series, though inaccurate in parts, was fine tribute to Eli Cohen, and revived an episode of history that some people might not be aware of. His (mis)treatment by the Syrians after his capture was appalling. Any captured spy can expect robust interrogation - it's an occupational hazard - but the torture of Eli and his subsequent execution was vile and way beyond the pale.

Saw the movie on Netflix. Was very very impressed. Such a brave man who gave his life for his country. May God rest his soul.
