The JCC: Not Even Worth Free Popcorn
Mohammad Bakri, the filmmaker who admits to having sold out his artistic vision to become a paid shill for Arab terrorists** has found another new donor to help him spread his lies and propaganda. Unfortunately, this new benefactor is the JCC.
Bakri, the maker of Jenin, Jenin - the movie world's factual equivalent of a Blair Waldorf story - is a lie-filled, high-budget, action film that pretends to be a documentary. In actuality, it is a piece of fabricated propaganda paid for out of the deep coffers of the Arabs who keep their own people locked behind ghettos and steal EU, US and UN aid money to make such films. XOXO.
Now, the JCC is giving this man a forum to speak about the role of director in making movies. Wouldn't he be better off discussing corruption? Or, maybe, advertising? Artists 4 Israel encourages the JCC to use their funds not to fly such shameful ex-artists to the States but, instead, finance ground-breaking, factual and important artistic work.
**In perhaps the most explosive element of the deposition, Bakri admitted his documentary, which was screened in theaters around the world, was financed in part by the Palestinian Authority. He said Yasser Abed Rabu, Palestinian minister of culture and information and a member of former PLO leader Yasser Arafat's executive committe, "covered a part of the film expenses."
