Shield of Solomon is a documentary by Igal Hecht and Chutzpa Productions about the story of four War in Darfur refugees who have found sanctuary in the Jewish state of Israel.[1]


Since April 2007 more than three thousand Darfur and South Sudanese refugees have crossed the Egyptian border into Israel. If caught at the border by the Egyptian military the refugees are either tortured, jailed, or killed. Caught off guard, Israel faced a moral dilemma.[2] Israel and Sudan are still officially considered enemies and the Sudanese government has stated publicly that any refugee who has entered Israel will be killed if returned to Sudan.[3][4]
