Short video dramatizes Hebron conflict staring veteran Israeli actor.

Yehuda Barkan the star of such classic Israeli movies as Hagiga BaSnooker, Lupo, and Charlie Ve'hetzi helped out Hebron for a special promotional video. Barkan depicts a grandfather who's peaceful home is taken over by two strangers posing as his grandsons. When his real grandson comes to visit, the strangers feign surprise and insist that this is their grandfather.
 
Barkan then explains the analogy of the Biblical "Grandpa Abraham" whose burial site in the Tomb of Machpela has been appropriated. Barkan is one of the many Israeli celebrities who have shown their support for the city of the Matriarchs and Patriarchs.
