Anti-Israel Bias in Israeli Films

From Steven Plaut:

The anti-Israel political bias in Israel films became evident to everyone recently thanks to two events. The first was the media promoting the anti-Israel "Waltzes with Bashir" film, which almost got an Oscar. The second was when the Israel Prize was awarded this year to a professor of film at Tel Aviv University, "Judd" Neeman, who is one of the most open haters of Israel at Tel Aviv University, and that is saying a lot! Concerning the second item, see this.

Now a different faculty member at Tel Aviv University, and - somewhat amazingly - this time not someone who wishes to see Israel annihilated, has published a study of political bias in Israeli films over recent decades. The researcher is Dr. Ilan Avishur. The study says that starting in the late 1970s, Zionist film makers retired or left the scene, and Israeli filmmaking was were converted into the production of anti-Israel propaganda weapons, all with governmental funding. These include the endless "protest films" that no one will pay money to see, films that invariably paint Palestinian terrorists as poor victims and Israelis as Nazi-like bullies. Historic revisionism, meaning lying, about the Six Day War is common. One of the worst film atrocities is titled "On a Clear Day you can See Damascus," and it beatifies the Israeli convicted traitor Udi Aviv, a kibbutznik who was arrested for undergoing training as an anti-Israel terrorist in Syria and who then organized a terrorism and espionage cell. Adiv spent many years in jail and now is employed as a lecturer in politics by Israel's "Open University," a poster boy for Israel's Jewish Left for a Second Holocaust. Even relatively popular films like Beaufort are filled with anti-Israel bias and propaganda.

Bibi Netanyahu is now looking for ways to cut Israel's budget, and ending government subsidies to Israeli films would be one of the most constructive ideas for such savings. Israel's governmental subsidized treason on celluloid is a clear and present danger to the survival of the country! And government spending to subsidize such trash makes the "art" of Andres Serrano and Robert Mapplethorpe look civilized.
