Revenge is a dish best served cold – but at what cost?
The city of Munich was brimming with excitement as the world’s top athletes gathered for the 1972 Olympic Games. It was a time of hope and unity, a time when countries came together to celebrate the spirit of sportsmanship. But what should have been a time of celebration turned into a nightmare that would haunt the world for years to come. In the early hours of September 5th, eleven Israeli athletes were taken hostage by a Palestinian terrorist group known as Black September. The world watched in horror as the events unfolded, and the lives of the hostages hung in the balance. The Israeli government, outraged by the brutal attack, vowed to take swift and decisive action against those responsible. And so began a daring and dangerous mission that would shake the foundations of international espionage and leave a legacy that continues to this day.
Chapter 1: The Attack
The sun was just beginning to rise over Munich when the first shots rang out. It was September 5th, 1972, and the opening ceremonies of the Olympic Games were still fresh in the minds of the athletes and spectators. But within moments, the mood of the city had turned from celebration to terror.
Members of the Palestinian terror group Black September had scaled the fence of the Olympic village and taken eleven Israeli athletes hostage. They demanded the release of over two hundred Palestinian prisoners being held in Israel, as well as the release of two German terrorists who were being held in custody.
The world watched in horror as the events unfolded. Television cameras captured the tense standoff between the terrorists and the German authorities, and the world waited anxiously for news of the hostages’ fate.
The Israeli government, outraged by the brutal attack, quickly mobilized to respond. They knew that negotiations with the terrorists would be futile, and that the lives of the hostages were in grave danger. And so, with a heavy heart, they made the decision to take matters into their own hands.
A top-secret team of Mossad agents was assembled, led by the experienced and ruthless Avner. The team was tasked with carrying out a campaign of targeted assassinations against those responsible for the Munich attack.
As the world watched in horror, the Mossad team set out on their dangerous mission. They knew that the stakes were high, and that failure was not an option. But they were prepared to do whatever it took to ensure that justice was served, and that the memory of the Munich tragedy would not be forgotten.
The stage was set for a daring and dangerous mission that would shake the foundations of international espionage and leave a legacy that continues to this day.
Chapter 2: The Israeli Response
After the horrific terrorist attack on their athletes at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich, the Israeli government was left with no choice but to take matters into their own hands. Their response was quick and fierce. They immediately began to mobilize a team of elite Mossad agents to carry out a campaign of targeted assassinations against those responsible for the attack.
The Mossad team was led by Avner, a seasoned and experienced agent with a reputation for being both ruthless and effective. His team consisted of four other agents, each handpicked for their unique skills and expertise. Together, they formed a tight-knit group that would stop at nothing to bring the terrorists to justice.
The Israeli government provided the team with the necessary resources and support for their mission, but they were also given a significant amount of autonomy. They were told to operate outside the law and to do whatever was necessary to achieve their objectives. This meant that they would have to operate in a world of secrecy and espionage, where the risks were high and the consequences could be deadly.
Avner and his team immediately began their mission, which they knew would be a long and grueling journey. They had to track down the members of Black September responsible for the attack, a task that would take them across the globe as they followed the trail of the terrorists.
Their first step was to gather intelligence. They scoured through classified documents, sifted through information from contacts across the Middle East and Europe, and even used their own networks to gather information. They needed to know who they were hunting, where they were located, and how they could get to them.
As they began to piece together the fragments of information they had gathered, they realized that the task ahead of them was going to be much more difficult than they had anticipated. The members of Black September were experts at hiding, and they knew how to cover their tracks. Even with all the intelligence they had gathered, the team was struggling to pinpoint exactly where the terrorists were hiding.
Despite the difficulties they faced, Avner and his team remained determined. They knew that they were the only ones who could bring the terrorists to justice, and that the fate of their country and their people depended on their success. Their mission became an obsession, and they worked tirelessly day and night to find their targets.
As they got closer to their objectives, the team began to face new challenges. They had to operate in countries that were hostile to them, where their every move was watched and scrutinized. They had to navigate the complex web of international politics, where one misstep could have disastrous consequences.
But Avner and his team were not easily deterred. They were driven by their sense of duty and their unshakeable belief in the righteousness of their cause. The adrenaline of the mission kept them going, even in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
As they continued their search, the team became increasingly aware of the personal toll that their mission was taking on them. They were sacrificing their own morality and putting themselves in harm’s way in order to carry out their duty. They began to question the cost of their revenge, and whether the ends truly justified the means.
Despite their doubts, Avner and his team pressed on. They knew that they were the only ones who could avenge the victims of the Munich attack, and they were willing to pay any price to bring the terrorists to justice.
Chapter 2 set the stage for the intense action and suspense that would follow. It introduced the key characters and their motivations, and established the high stakes and moral complexities of their mission. With their determination and unwavering resolve, Avner and his team were ready to take on whatever challenges lay ahead, no matter the cost. The reader is left on the edge of their seat, wondering what obstacles and dangers will come their way in the chapters to come.
Chapter 3: The Search Begins
As the Israeli government began to grapple with the aftermath of the Munich attack, the decision was made to take matters into its own hands. The country’s intelligence agency, Mossad, was tasked with finding and executing the members of the Palestinian terrorist group Black September responsible for the massacre.
Leading the mission was Avner, an experienced and ruthless Mossad agent. He assembled a team of fellow operatives, each with their own unique skills and specialties. The group worked tirelessly to gather intelligence on the whereabouts of the members of Black September responsible for the attack.
Their work took them across Europe and the Middle East, as they tracked down leads and infiltrated terrorist cells. They worked in secrecy, often under assumed identities, blending into the local communities and staying off the radar of law enforcement agencies.
As they delved deeper into the world of international espionage and counter-terrorist operations, they began to realize how complex and dangerous their mission truly was. They were up against a well-organized and well-funded terrorist network, with connections and support throughout the Arab world.
Avner and his team also had to contend with their own moral and ethical dilemmas. As they carried out their mission, they were forced to confront the realities of revenge and the toll it takes on those who seek it. They began to question the morality of their actions, and whether the ends truly justified the means.
Despite these challenges, the Mossad team was relentless in their pursuit of justice. They used every tool at their disposal, from sophisticated technology to old-fashioned espionage techniques, to track down the members of Black September responsible for the Munich attack.
As they gathered intel on their targets, they also began to prepare for the physical execution of their mission. They trained extensively in hand-to-hand combat, firearms, and other combat techniques, honing their skills to a razor’s edge.
The chapter ends with the Mossad team on the cusp of their first mission. They have identified their first target, a Palestinian man suspected of involvement in the Munich attack, and they are preparing to execute their plan. Despite the risks and uncertainties ahead, they are resolute in their mission and determined to see it through to the end.
Chapter 4: The First Target
The Mossad team had been meticulously planning this operation for weeks. They had learned their lesson from the disastrous Lillehammer affair, where an innocent Moroccan waiter had been mistakenly executed by the team, and they were determined not to make the same mistakes again. They had studied their target’s movements, his routines, his habits. They had even infiltrated his inner circle, gathering intelligence about his family, his friends, his associates.
Avner, the team’s leader, was confident that they were ready. He knew that there was no room for error this time. They were not just taking out a random Palestinian, they were going after someone who was directly connected to the Munich attack. They were going after a man who had blood on his hands, someone who deserved to be punished for what he had done.
The team set out early in the morning, driving through the streets of Rome in a rented Fiat. They had chosen Italy as their starting point because it was far enough away from Israel to avoid suspicion, but close enough to make a quick getaway if things went wrong. They had also chosen Rome because their target was there, attending a conference of Arab leaders.
The team arrived at the hotel where their target was staying, and they split up. Avner and two others would enter the hotel and make their way to the target’s room, while the rest of the team would be stationed outside, ready to provide backup if needed.
As they entered the hotel, Avner felt a rush of adrenaline. This was what he had trained for, what he had been waiting for. He knew that this was his chance to strike a blow for Israel, to make a difference in the world.
They made their way up to the target’s room, using a keycard that one of their associates had stolen. As they entered the room, they saw their target sleeping peacefully in his bed. Avner signaled to his team to take up positions, and then he approached the bed.
He drew his gun, a silenced Glock 17, and aimed it at the sleeping man’s head. He hesitated for a moment, wondering if he had made the right choice. He knew that what he was about to do was irreversible, that he was taking a life. But then he remembered the eleven Israeli athletes who had died in Munich, and he pulled the trigger.
The sound of the gunshot was muffled by the silencer, but it still echoed through the room. The other members of the team sprang into action, covering the entrance and exit, making sure that no one could get in or out. They quickly wrapped the body in a sheet, and then they made their way out of the hotel.
As they drove away from the scene of the crime, Avner felt a sense of satisfaction. They had done what they had set out to do. They had eliminated one of the men responsible for the attack in Munich. They had struck a blow for justice.
But as they drove through the streets of Rome, Avner couldn’t shake the feeling that something was wrong. He couldn’t help but think about the innocent Moroccan waiter who had been killed in Lillehammer, and he wondered if they had made a similar mistake this time.
He knew that they had to be careful, that they had to make sure that they were only targeting the right people. He knew that the consequences of a mistake could be dire, not just for the innocent people who might be caught up in their operations, but also for the legitimacy of the Israeli state.
As they drove back to their safehouse, Avner couldn’t help but feel a nagging doubt. Had they made the right choice? Were they really making a difference, or were they just perpetuating a cycle of violence that would never end?
He knew that he had to keep his doubts in check, that he couldn’t let them distract him from his mission. He knew that there was still a long way to go, that they still had many targets to eliminate.
But as he drifted off to sleep that night, Avner couldn’t help but wonder if there was another way.
Chapter 5: The Price of Revenge
Avner and his team continue their mission with laser-focus and grim determination, driven by their desire to avenge the innocent athletes who were mercilessly killed in Munich. However, as they move closer to their targets, the emotional and psychological toll of their mission begins to weigh heavily on them.
Avner, in particular, struggles with his personal demons as the memories of the Munich attack haunt him day and night. He feels the weight of the responsibility on his shoulders, knowing that the success of their mission is vital not only to the Israeli government but also to the grieving families of the slain athletes.
The chapter opens with Avner and his team arriving in Cyprus for their next mission. They are to eliminate a Palestinian man who was allegedly involved in the Munich attack. The team sets up their base of operations in a nondescript hotel, and they begin their preparations for the mission.
Avner is restless and preoccupied, unable to shake off the nagging feeling of doubt and guilt that has been gnawing at him since they started their campaign of targeted assassinations. He confides his worries to his second-in-command, Steve, who tries to reassure him that their mission is justified and necessary.
“We’re doing what needs to be done, Avner,” Steve tells him. “We’re fighting for our country and our people. Don’t let doubts cloud your judgment.”
Avner nods but remains unconvinced. He has seen too much bloodshed and violence, and he knows that the price of revenge is high. He wonders if the satisfaction of killing their enemies will ever be enough to numb the pain of loss and grief that he carries with him.
The team begins their surveillance of the target, a middle-aged man who works as a schoolteacher by day and a member of Black September by night. They follow him to his apartment, a rundown building on the outskirts of the city. Avner and Steve sneak into the apartment, taking the man by surprise and eliminating him quickly and efficiently.
The mission is a success, and the team makes their escape without attracting attention. However, as they leave the city, Avner is struck by a wave of guilt and remorse. He wonders if the man they killed was really involved in the Munich attack, or if he was just a pawn in a larger game. He thinks of the man’s family, his wife and children, and wonders what they will do now that he is gone.
Avner’s inner turmoil deepens as the team moves on to their next mission. He finds himself increasingly detached from his team members, unable to connect with them on a personal level. He begins to question the morality of their mission and the cost of their actions.
During a quiet moment in their hotel room, Avner opens up to his fellow team member, Robert, who listens sympathetically to his concerns. “It’s natural to feel this way,” Robert tells him. “We’re not robots, Avner. We’re human beings, and this kind of work takes its toll. But we have to keep going. We can’t let our doubts consume us.”
Avner nods, grateful for Robert’s understanding. He tries to push his doubts aside and focus on the mission, but he finds it increasingly difficult to reconcile his actions with his conscience.
The chapter ends with Avner and his team moving on to their next target, their resolve hardened by the challenges they have faced. But deep down, Avner knows that the price of revenge is high, and he wonders if he can pay it without losing his soul.
Chapter 6: The Hunt Intensifies
The Mossad team’s search for the members of Black September responsible for the Munich attack intensifies, and they face new challenges and unexpected setbacks along the way. Avner and his team are determined to find the remaining members of Black September and bring them to justice. However, they soon discover that this will not be an easy task. The team faces a web of complications and obstacles that threaten to derail their mission.
Avner and his team work tirelessly, tracking leads and gathering intelligence. They soon come to the realization that Black September operates with a high degree of secrecy and that their members go to great lengths to avoid detection. The team must move quickly if they are to have any hope of catching their targets.
As the team’s search intensifies, they find themselves in the heart of Europe’s underground. They encounter a series of characters, each with their own agendas and motivations. Avner and his team must navigate complex and treacherous terrain, and the risks are high. The team members find themselves constantly on the move, traveling from city to city in search of their targets.
The journey becomes perilous, and Avner and his team face both physical and emotional challenges. The days are long and grueling, and the team members are forced to confront their own demons. Avner, in particular, grapples with the personal cost of their mission. He begins to question the morality of their actions, and his doubts only escalate as the team becomes embroiled in a web of political intrigue.
The team’s search eventually leads them to Paris, where they believe a key member of Black September is hiding. Avner and his team hatch a plan to capture or kill this target, but as with all their missions, things do not go according to plan. The team is forced to improvise, and the situation becomes increasingly fraught with danger. The stakes have never been higher, and the team must put everything on the line if they are to succeed.
As Avner and his team attempt to execute their mission, they find themselves increasingly isolated. The world outside is beginning to turn against them, and they are forced to rely on their own resources to survive. They must use every tool at their disposal, from their physical skills to their psychological prowess, to outmaneuver their enemies and come out alive.
In the end, Avner and his team do succeed in capturing their target. However, the victory is bittersweet. The team members are left to grapple with the consequences of their actions, both for themselves and for the world around them. They must continue their search, knowing that the cost of revenge may be greater than anyone could have imagined.
The chapter ends on a note of tension and uncertainty. The team moves on to their next target, wondering what lies ahead for them in the dangerous world of international espionage.
Chapter 7: The Second Target
The Mossad team’s mission to track down and assassinate members of the Black September terrorist group responsible for the Munich attack intensifies, and they face new challenges and unexpected setbacks along the way. This chapter delves into the intense and complex process of targeting and killing their second Black September member, highlighting the high stakes, moral and emotional complexities, and the ruthless nature of their mission.
The chapter opens with the team obtaining information on their next target, a Black September member currently in Rome, Italy. Avner, the team leader, briefs the team on their mission, reminding them of the importance of precision and avoiding civilian casualties. The team begins to plan their operation, gathering intelligence and scouting out their target’s location.
As they prepare for the mission, Avner reflects on the tolls their pursuit of revenge has taken on the team. They are all grappling with the psychological and emotional impact of their work, with some members expressing doubts and questioning the morality and effectiveness of their actions. Avner himself is struggling with the weight of his leadership role, questioning whether he is equipped to lead his team to success and questioning the rightness of the mission to which they have been assigned.
Despite their doubts and reservations, the team moves forward with the mission, and we are taken on a thrilling and harrowing journey as they attempt to assassinate their second target. The Mossad team adopts a new approach to their task, this time employing a sophisticated and risky deception to get close to the target.
The Mossad team creates a fake radio station and manages to get a Black September member to come in for an interview in Rome. Once the target arrives, they are able to get close enough to inject him with a poison that is undetectable, allowing the team to carry out the assassination without any suspicion being raised.
However, the operation is not without complication. The target’s bodyguard is suspicious, and the team must use all of their skills and experience to evade him and carry out the assassination undetected. The tension is high and the stakes are even higher as the team works together to carry out their mission.
As the team returns to their safe house after successfully completing their mission, they begin to reflect on the personal toll their work has taken. Some team members are grappling with the morality of what they have done, while others are struggling with the emotional impact of their actions. Avner in particular is questioning whether the mission is truly just, and whether the Mossad team’s actions are making a difference in the larger conflict between Palestine and Israel.
The chapter ends on a note of ambiguity, with the Mossad team’s success in assassinating their second target tinged with doubt and uncertainty. As the team prepares for their next mission, they are forced to confront the moral and emotional complexities of their work, and the high cost of their pursuit of revenge.
In this way, Chapter 7 continues to build on the themes of morality, emotional conflict, and the human cost of revenge that are so central to the novel. It is a gripping and intense chapter, full of action, suspense, and complex character development, leaving the reader both thrilled and unsettled.
Chapter 8: The Consequences of Revenge
The Mossad team had always known that their campaign of revenge would have consequences. But as they executed their targets one by one, they had focused only on their mission, driven by a combination of righteous anger and the need for justice. Now, as they approached the end of their mission, they began to grapple with the long-term consequences of their actions.
Avner, the team leader, had always prided himself on his ability to compartmentalize his emotions. But now, he found himself struggling to reconcile the violence he had unleashed with his own sense of morality. He had always believed in the righteousness of the Israeli cause, but now he wondered if the cost of revenge was too high.
It was a sentiment that was shared by many of the team members. Steve, the explosives expert, had always been the most vocal about the morality of their mission. He had lost his brother in a terrorist attack years ago and had joined the Mossad team out of a deep sense of personal vengeance. But now, as he looked at the dead bodies of the people they had killed, he began to question whether their actions were truly justified.
Even Robert, the team’s intelligence specialist, who had always been the most coldly analytical of the group, was beginning to feel the weight of their actions. He had focused solely on the mission, convinced that their actions were necessary to protect Israel. But now, as he listened to the stories of the lives they had destroyed, he began to wonder if revenge was really the answer.
The consequences of their actions were also beginning to spill over into the political realm. The Israeli government had supported the Mossad team’s mission from the beginning, but now they were beginning to face international condemnation for their actions. The world was beginning to see the Mossad team not as heroes, but as vigilantes, operating outside the bounds of international law.
The Mossad team had always known that their actions might have political consequences, but they had felt that the price was worth it. Now, they were beginning to question that assumption. They had always believed that they were the only ones who could protect Israel, but now they wondered if their actions had only made things worse.
As they prepared for their final mission, the team members found themselves grappling with the complex moral questions that their campaign of revenge had raised. They wondered if they had gone too far, if the price of revenge was too high, if there were other ways to protect Israel without resorting to violence.
But despite their doubts, the team pressed on. They had come too far to turn back now. They would complete their mission, execute their final target, and then face the consequences of their actions. It was a decision that would shape the rest of their lives, and the fate of Israel itself.
Chapter 9: The Final Target
The Mossad team had been tracking him for months, and now the moment of truth had arrived. The mastermind behind the Munich attack was finally within reach, but the team knew that this would be their most dangerous mission yet. They had to move quickly and carefully, or risk everything.
Avner, the team leader, gathered the team together and went over the plan one last time. They would enter the target’s safe house in the dead of night, taking out the guards and capturing their quarry. It was a risky move, but one that they had rehearsed over and over again.
As they approached the safe house, tension was high. They moved quickly and quietly, taking out the guards with precision and speed. The team entered the building, taking care to move silently and avoid detection. As they made their way through the building, they could hear muffled voices and footsteps in the distance.
Finally, they reached their target’s inner sanctum. With a nod from Avner, the team moved in, their weapons drawn. They were met by a hail of gunfire, and the room erupted in chaos. The target and his men fought fiercely, but the Mossad team was better trained and better equipped.
It was a brutal battle, with both sides sustaining heavy losses. But in the end, the Mossad team emerged victorious. They captured their target and the surviving members of his group, and made a hasty exit before the authorities arrived.
As they left the safe house, the team was filled with a sense of grim satisfaction. They had accomplished their mission, and they had done it with a level of skill and precision that was unmatched. But as they returned to Israel, they knew that the consequences of their actions would be far-reaching and profound.
The target had been a high-ranking member of Black September, with deep connections and a wide network of supporters. His elimination would be seen as an act of war by many, and the repercussions could be devastating. But the Mossad team knew that they had no choice. They had sworn to protect their country and their people, and they would do whatever it took to accomplish that mission.
As they landed back in Israel, the team was greeted as heroes. But they knew that their victory had come at a great cost. They had lost friends and colleagues along the way, and the psychological toll of their mission would stay with them for years to come.
For Avner, the team leader, the experience had been particularly harrowing. He had seen things that he couldn’t unsee, and had been forced to make decisions that would haunt him for the rest of his life. As he walked off the plane and into the arms of his family, he knew that his life would never be the same.
In the end, the Mossad team had accomplished what they set out to do. They had taken revenge for the Munich attack, and had eliminated the key players in Black September. But the cost had been high, and the consequences of their actions would be felt for decades to come. The question remained: was it worth it?
Chapter 10: The Aftermath
The final chapter of the novel opens with the Mossad team returning to Israel after completing their mission to track down and execute the members of Black September responsible for the Munich attack. As they step off the plane, they are greeted with a mix of cheers and jeers from the crowd gathered at the airport. Some view them as heroes who have avenged the deaths of the Israeli athletes, while others see them as ruthless killers who have stooped to the level of their enemies.
As the team members make their way through the airport, they are met by a group of high-ranking Israeli officials who congratulate them on a job well done. But the mood is somber, and the team members know that the mission has taken a heavy toll on them both physically and emotionally.
Avner, the team’s leader, is particularly affected. He has seen too much and done too much in the name of revenge, and he knows that he can never truly go back to his old life. He has lost friends and colleagues along the way, and he has learned that revenge is a slippery slope that can lead to even more bloodshed and destruction.
As the team members disperse and return to their families and loved ones, Avner is left alone to ponder the consequences of their actions. He knows that what they did was necessary to avenge the deaths of the Israeli athletes, but he also knows that revenge is not the answer to the conflict between Israel and Palestine.
He spends the next few weeks in a haze of confusion and guilt, haunted by the faces of the men he killed and the knowledge that his actions may have only served to escalate the violence in the region. He tries to find solace in the arms of his wife, but he knows that he can never truly escape the weight of what he has done.
As the days turn into weeks, and the weeks turn into months, Avner begins to realize that he can no longer stay silent about the mission he and his team carried out. He knows that the truth must be told, no matter how painful or controversial it may be.
He begins working on a memoir, detailing the events of the mission and the toll it took on him and his colleagues. The book is both a confession and a warning, a powerful reminder of the dangers of revenge and the complexities of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
When the book is published, it causes a stir in Israel and around the world. Some accuse Avner of being a traitor, while others hail him as a brave and honest voice in a landscape of lies and propaganda. Regardless of the reaction, Avner knows that he has done the right thing, and that his book may be the first step towards a more peaceful and just future for Israel and Palestine.
As the final pages of the book come to a close, Avner reflects on the lessons he has learned. He knows that revenge is a seductive and dangerous force that can lead to even more suffering and bloodshed. He knows that the only way forward is through dialogue, understanding, and compromise. He knows that the road to peace is long and difficult, but that it is the only path worth taking.
With these thoughts in mind, Avner closes the book and steps out into the bright sunlight of a new day. He knows that the future is uncertain, but he also knows that he will do everything in his power to make it a better and more just world for all those who live in it.

Okay, we know that our next target is staying in a small apartment complex on the outskirts of Paris. We’ll need to move quickly and quietly to avoid any unwanted attention.
What’s the plan, Avner?
We’ll use a distraction to draw the attention of any potential witnesses away from the building. Then we’ll move in and take out the target.
What about security?
We believe that our target is staying alone in the apartment. But we can’t be certain, so we need to be prepared for anything.
I have a small explosive device that we could use to create a diversion, if necessary.
Good thinking, Gad. But let’s try to avoid that if we can. We don’t want to attract too much attention.
So, what’s the plan for the actual hit?
We’ll approach the building from the rear, climb up the fire escape, and enter through the window of the target’s apartment. We’ll move in quickly and silently, and take him out before he knows what’s happening.
And if there is security?
We’ll have to improvise. But we’re prepared for anything.
INT. PARIS APARTMENT – NIGHT
The Mossad team has arrived at the apartment complex and is preparing to execute their mission.
AVNER, SHAPIRO, PAPA, and GAD are dressed in black and carrying silenced weapons.
Okay, let’s move.
They move quickly and silently toward the building, staying close to the shadows to avoid detection.
As they reach the rear of the building, they see a lone security guard patrolling the perimeter.
There’s a fire! Call the fire department!
The security guard rushes to the front of the building to investigate.
The Mossad team takes advantage of the distraction and quickly climbs up the fire escape.
They reach the window of the target’s apartment and silently break in.
INT. TARGET’S APARTMENT – NIGHT
The target is asleep on the couch, a gun lying on the coffee table in front of him.
The Mossad team moves in quickly, silently taking out the target with a single shot.
They gather their equipment quickly and exit the apartment, leaving no trace of their presence behind.

INT. A SMALL ROOM IN A SAFEHOUSE IN PARIS – DAY
Avner and Steve are sitting at a small table, pouring over documents and maps, discussing their next target. Robert and Carl are in the next room, preparing weapons and equipment. Avner is looking particularly stressed and distant.
I’m starting to feel like we’re losing sight of why we’re doing this. We’re supposed to be avenging the Israeli athletes who were killed in Munich, but every time we take out one of these guys, it just feels like we’re creating more enemies.
I know what you mean, but we have to remember that these people chose to be terrorists. They made their decision to attack innocent people, and now they have to pay the price.
I get that, but it’s not just about them anymore. It’s also about us. The more we do this, the more we become like them. I don’t want to be a terrorist, Steve. I want to be a defender of my homeland.
I understand, but we have to do what we have to do. We’re not vigilantes, we’re soldiers.
(sighs) I know you’re right. It’s just hard to reconcile my feelings with my duty.
The tension in the room is palpable as Avner and Steve sit in silence for a moment. They both know that what they’re doing is dangerous and morally ambiguous, but they also know that they have a job to do.
We’ve got a lead on our next target. He’s in Beirut. We’ll need to move quickly if we want to catch him before he disappears.
Avner nods, and the two of them get up from the table.
Alright then. Let’s get to work.
As they exit the room, the camera lingers on Avner’s troubled expression, hinting at the emotional and psychological toll that this mission is taking on him.
