Free Speach has been much touted these last weeks; do we really mean it?
Thank you to my friend Eman of AquaCool for raising the issue:
After winning the AGICOA’s
Blue Angel Award for the best European film at the Berlinale , and a Golden Globe for
the Best Foreign Language Film movie in the 63rd Annual Golden Globe Awards, Paradise Now has created such a controversy. As soon as the news of this movie being nominated for the Oscars, an online petition signed by over 11,000 Israelis was created to force the withdrawal of this movie from the Oscars all together, claiming it encourages mass murder!
