Miral's Utterly Cynical NY Times Full Page Ad
I hadn't planned on posting anything else on Schnabel/Weinstein's tiresome Miral but the full page color ad in today's Sunday Times forced me to. This is my scan of the offending image: a barbed-wire Star of David. And the words: The movie they tried to stop is coming to New York this Friday. Who tried to stop the movie? The Jews? The Zionists? As far as I am aware "they" only wanted to stop its premier at the UN? But why mess with a good line? Why mess with an image that's working so well for the Israel delegitimization campaign? Cynical and, I must say, a page out of the anti-Semite's handbook. Hmm...anything for a buck?
