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.
