Our own worst enemies. What are they thinking? The SF Jewish Film Festival Collaborates with Extreme Anti-Israel Groups, Promotes Anti-Israel Propaganda
On July 25th and August 4th the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival (SFJFF) will screen the movie "Rachel," a film which glorifies Rachel Corrie, an activist with the pro-Hamas, anti-Israel International Solidarity Movement (ISM). The ISM has used its activists as human shields in order to obstruct Israel's counter-terrorism efforts.
Corrie was accidentally killed in Gaza while purposefully hindering efforts aimed at preventing Palestinian terrorists from smuggling weapons into Gaza for use against Israeli civilians. [More...]
Corrie's mother, Cindy Corrie (president of the Rachel Corrie Foundation), who has been relentless in her smear and delegitimization campaign against Israel, has been invited by the Jewish Festival to speak at the event.
The Jewish Festival is co-presenting this obvious propaganda event with two stridently anti-Israel organizations, the Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) and the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC). Both organizations unabashedly call for and support divestment from, boycotts of and sanctions directed against Israel.
The rest. Any Jewish organization that allies itself with JVP or the AFSC, or that lends its name to forwarding an obvious piece of anti-Jewish trash like this doesn't deserve the name, and should at the very least have its funding cut off if they receive any from the wider community.
