Shameful choices at the SF Jewish Film Festival

There is a new blog dedicated to disturbing developments at the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival: SF Jewish Film Festival Watch.

Jew-Hate at Jewish Film Festival by Jamie Glazov (FrontPageMag)

Why is a Jewish film festival giving a platform to a documentary and to an individual that serve the cause of anti-Jewish hate?

This Saturday, July 25, organizers of the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival plan to show “Rachel,” an anti-Israel propaganda film. The documentary is based on the life and death of Rachel Corrie, an anti-Israel, anti-American activist who was killed in Gaza in 2003 when she deliberately ran in front of an Israeli bulldozer to protect a home that was sheltering terrorists. And not just content with showing the propaganda film, the organizers have invited Rachel’s mother, Cindy Corrie, also an Israel-basher, to speak at the screening and to participate in a question-and-answer session after the viewing.

I think this is my first time writing a letter of protest to a supposedly “Jewish” venue. ACTION OF THE WEEK: A Disturbing Addition to the Jewish Film Festival in San Francisco (StandWithUs)

Good for Koret Foundation for pulling out from this disgrace: The KORET Foundation pulls its funding from the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival (StandWithUs)

All their remaining sponsors should be notified the they are about to support an anti-Israel event, providing a podium to antisemites.
