"We Give Too Much Honor To Terrorists and Not Enough Honor to Their Victims"

The Jerusalem Post has piece today about the protest against the film Paradise Now which is up for an Oscar tonight. A press conference was sponsored by the group the Israel Project and featured only one speaker - Nonie Darwish, and Egyptian born woman whose father was killed by Israeli troops for terrorist activity, who frequently speaks out against terrorism. (more on Ms. Darwish here).

In addition to the press conference the Israel Group took out a full page ad in Variety with pictures of an Israeli bus and a teenager blown up by a suicide bomber.

Ms. Darwish is quoted as saying:

"There should be films about those Arabs who refuse to become jihadists. We give too much honor to terrorists and not enough honor to their victims. I look forward to the day that Hollywood honors a Palestinian film that advocates peace."

So would we all.

WestBankMama- thanks for all the links and especially the one to Nonie Darwish. Ms. Darwish should be commended for her stance and her courage in speaking to this problem.

Thanks for blogrolling me!

As much as I admire Ms. Darwish, the sad reality is, most people don't want to hear this. The "average" person likes to listen to "both" sides of the story.

regina - I just learned about Nonie Darwish myself about a month ago.

irina - your welcome! I think Americans are more open to hearing our side after September 11.

An odd comment for Darwish to make, being as Paradise Now features several "Arabs who refuse to become Jihadists" including one of the would-be suicide bombers.

I'm also glad it didn't win, make no mistake.

I am really glad that the movie didn't win - there is hope for Hollywood yet.
