Anti-Israel bigotry and bias Anti-Israel Protests anti-semitism in Norway BDS


BDS = anti-Jew

No matter how they (the Norwegians and others) slice it, it’s Jew hatred. When only one state is singled out for condemnation for merely protecting itself, while a whole bastion of real wrong doing nations (real human rights violators) barely make the international radar screen (as well as sitting in judgement of world’s only Jewish state) then you must judge those who are making these outrageous claims against Israel.

“The Other Dreamers”, an award-winning documentary by the Israeli film-maker Roy Zafrani, has already been rejected by the Human Rights Human Wrongs festival, which takes place in February next year.

“I’m sorry but we can’t show this film,” a letter from festival organiser Ketil Magnussen told the director, according to the Times of Israel.

“We support the academic and cultural boycott of Israel so unless the films are about the illegal occupation, or deal with the occupation or the blockade of Gaza, or otherwise about the discrimination of Palestinians, we can’t show them.”

Zafrani complained that he was being punished for the actions of his government in a way a director from no other country would be.

“Film is meant to bring people together, not drive them apart,” he told the Times of Israel. “I see films from all over the world, from Syria to Iran, and learn about the people beyond their leadership. No one would boycott an Iranian director because of what his government does, so if he doesn’t get that sort of reception, neither should I.”

Magnussen defended his position, arguing that the boycott was necessary to highlight Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories, after nearly 50 years.

  1. Well, then I won’t be watching any Norwegian documentary film festivals. Screw you. You sound like a bunch of Jew-hating Nazi-wannabees anyway. We have them here in the States, too. They don’t fool anyone. These people couldn’t care less about “Palestinians.” Not even Arabs care about these people. This is all about money and cowardice (ie. dhimmitude.) This is a big suck-up to Islam, and nothing more. And they still won’t like you, after all.
