Sources said that invitations
were sent out on Thursday
afternoon for the Monday
Members of the Israeli delegation
to the UN said the decision
to screen a feature film
in the General Assembly hall –
especially such a dramatically
pro-Palestinian and anti-Israeli film
– was a “horrible” one.
The decision seems to have
been made unilaterally by Switzerland’s
the General Assembly’s president.
Messages to his spokesperson
left by the Post Sunday were not returned.
On Friday morning,
Israel’s delegation to the UN
sent a letter of complaint to Deiss,
protesting his decision to host the US premiere
of Miral, Israeli spokeswoman
Karean Peretz told the Post.
In the letter, Israel’s Deputy
Permanent Representative to the
UN Haim Waxman wrote,
“We find it very troubling that the UN
has chosen to feature this film in the GA Hall.
We are not aware of any other films
with such contentious political content
that have received this kind of endorsement
from the President of the GA.”
The event, according to the Israeli delegation,
“will mark a rare occasion in which the
UN’s GA Hall is used for a movie premiere.
This is clearly
a politicized decision of the UN,
one that shows poor judgment
and a lack of evenhandedness.”
According to members
of the Israeli delegation,
various offices at the UN denied
having any knowledge
of the event beforehand,
including the office of the
Secretary General Ban Ki Moon.
His office did not respond
to the Post’s request for comment.
Waxman told the Post that Deiss,
as president of the General Assembly,
in some circumstances is independent
and therefore has the prerogative
to make decisions such as these.
“But the hall of the General Assembly is not his own property,” Waxman continued. “This is the main hall of the global community and belongs to the countries of the world. Anything that happens there has to be decided with great care. We find ourselves arguing about commas here and there on every document – so how can this screening happen?
Here is the plot from Wikipedia (it’s actually based on a true story, which has been propagandized).
A chronicle of Hind Husseini’s effort to establish an orphanage in Jerusalem after the 1948 partition of Palestine and the creation of the state of Israel.
Jerusalem, 1948. On her way to work, Hind Husseini (Hiam Abbass) comes across 55 orphaned children in the street. She takes them home to give them food and shelter. Within six months, 55 had grown to almost 2,000, and the Dar Al-Tifel Institute was born.
In 1978, at the age of 7, Miral (Freida Pinto) was sent to the Institute by her father following her mother’s death. Brought up safely inside the Institute’s walls, she is naïve to the troubles that surround her. Then, in 1988, at the age of 17, she is assigned to teach at a refugee camp where she is awakened to the reality of her people’s struggle. When she falls for Hani, a political activist, she finds herself torn between the fight for the future of her people and Mama Hind’s belief that education is the road to peace.
You can probably guess to whom this movie is sympathetic….
So what’s wrong with a highly visible film that’s likely to get a lot of attention (even though it may be out of the running for an Oscar) and that shows the ‘Palestinians’ in a favorable light? Well, let’s start with Hind Husseini. Does the name sound familiar? I thought it might. She was the sister of Haj al-Amin al-Husseini, the Mufti of Jerusalem and a collaborator with Hitler. And she never apologized for that. And no, the movie isn’t going to highlight it either.
And guess where the original 55 children
in the orphanage came from?
They were survivors of what Wikipedia calls the
‘Deir Yassin massacre.’
(There never was a ‘massacre’ there,
but I won’t get into that now). So you can bet that
lie will be repeated.
The orphanage ended up in Sheikh Jarrah,
directly across from what
was until 2002 the ‘Palestinian’ headquarters in Jerusalem
known as Orient House.
Maybe we’ll even see the nearby Shepherd’s Hotel….
Do you all have a
sense of where this is heading?
This entire movie is one
massive slander against Israel….
But as a reminder,
I am going to show you the trailer again.
Let’s go to the videotape.
What could go wrong?
I’m seriously starting to think that Hollywood is controlled by NAZIS. the Jews control the media meme just doesn’t make sense. The Jews that made it are puppets on a string.
check your strings!
