    • Synopsis
    • Enter the disturbing world of Jewish extremism.

      Once America’s most active terrorist organisation, the Jewish Defense League aims to prevent another Holocaust by any means necessary. Here, the threat of genocide lingers and preventative violence is justified.

      Privileged access to the current leader, Shelley Rubin, exposes this unusual pathway to terrorism.

      Shelley, a 60-year-old mother from suburban Los An¬geles, stands witness to the JDL from its inception, as we follow a life embroiled in FBI surveillance, assassination attempts and crimi-nally insane JDL members.

      Set behind America’s turbulent political history from the late 60s through President Nixon, 9/11 and to the present day, Shelley’s experience in the JDL takes us into the private world of Jewish terrorism. In the end we are exposed to the personal cost of a life fueled by fear and anger as we leave Shelley alone, traumatized and intent on finding the JDL’s next “messiah”.
