5 Broken Cameras and The Gatekeepers' loss at the Academy Awards was no loss for Israel, Bayit Yehudi MKs said on Monday morning.

"The Israeli film, the anti-Israel 5 Broken Cameras did not win the Oscar. I did not shed a tear," Bayit Yehudi leader Naftali Bennett wrote on Facebook.

MK Uri Orbach (Bayit Yehudi) took to the social network to write a sarcastic message: "Make a face like you're disappointed that the two documentary films that 'represent Israel' didn't win the Oscar for Best Documentary. Oy, so unfortunate." 5 Broken Cameras, co-directed by Emad Burnat and Guy Davidi, features footage collected by the former starting in 2005, when his fourth son was born, that follows skirmishes between Palestinian villagers from Bil'in and IDF soldiers protecting the nearby town of Modi'in Illit and his son's growth.
