In this Video we can see Marcus reading an apocalypse from the book of Ezakiel while tearing off and consuming his own colonel medals. By tearing off his own medals, Marcus is performing an action which refers to the Dreyfuss incident. The act of consuming himmself could be grasped as self criticisem or an ironic view if the political situation in Israel. "The fathers have eaten sour grapes and the children's teeth are set on edge" is a loaded saying in Israeli reality as it includes the debate between the different generations in Israel.
