Yet Another Oscar Winner Linked with Pro-Palestinian Propaganda

By Debbie Schlussel
In the past, I’ve told you about Oscar winner Angie Voight a/k/a Angelina Jolie’s pro-Palestinian spewing and mentioned other Oscar winning actresses, like Vanessa Redgrave, and their pan-Islamist, anti-Israel spewing.
Now, yet another Oscar Winner is linked with pro-Palestinian propaganda. Oscar winner Helen Mirren (who spent a career bearing her crotch for all the world to see) is being lined up to star in a film set in Gaza, about a woman whose journalist daughter falls in love with a Palestinian and gets killed.

Helen Mirren:

Queen Elizabeth Imitator Should Stay Out of Mid-East Politics

But don’t you worry, this won’t be a movie against the Palestinians and their own special brand of terrorism. It’s being produced by pro-Palestinian brits, so you can bet it will be very sympathetic to this terrorism-loving people. Bet that the death of the daughter is somehow a Zionist Israeli plot . . . just like Israel is being blamed for the current, real-life kidnapping of a pro-Palestinian BBC “journalist” by Palestinian terrorists.
Oh, and by the way, they had planned to make this movie in Gaza, but because HAMAS and Fatah terrorists are killing each other, they can’t. Don’t bet for that to be depicted in this movie.
But they wouldn’t dare make the movie in “evil Zionist” Israel, either. Instead, they’ll make it in HonorKillingcopia a/k/a Jordan, our “moderate” “ally.”
Hmmm . . . there’s something about aging actresses known for bearing their crotches onscreen. First, Sharon Stone said she and women would bring peace to the Middle East (still waiting for them to actually do it). And now, CrotchWoman #2 gets into the murky mix. (Since she’s also bared her crotch for us, maybe Britney Spears will also now get involved in Middle East diplomacy.)
More from Ha’Aretz:

Oscar-winner Helen Mirren is being lined up to star in a film set in the Gaza Strip, as a woman whose journalist daughter falls in love with a Palestinian and is killed, the company making the film said Thursday.
The film, described by Left Bank Picture head Andy Harries as more human interest than political, is expected to be shot in Jordan because the fighting between rival factions in Gaza. . . .
The film is to be directed by Philip Martin and written by Frank Deasy, who worked with Mirren on the British television series “Prime Suspect.”

Yes, the filmmakers claim it’s not political. Trust me, it will definitely be political. Count on it.
Thanks to reader Romy for the tip.

Not her first terrorist-sympathizing movie. She played the mother of a terrorist Bobby Sands in Some Mother’s Son. Ironically Bobby Sand’s hunger strike and subsequent death cowed the British into calling them criminals as opposed to POWs or more accurately terrorists.

As a child in the 1950’s, through the present, I have been a Texopean, one of those people who spend 40% of their time in Texas, 40% of their time in Europe and 20% of their time waiting for a Lufthansa flight at DFW or an Air France flight at IAH. Even at a very young age, I noticed the differences in attitude among Europeans and Americans with reference to Israel. When I became a bit more politically aware, I assumed for a short time that Americans and the American media were simply so pro-Israel that a more balanced view, that of Europeans and Britons, only seemed radical. That was an immature and incorrect view. Europeans and Britons do have not only a pro-Palestinian/pro-Islamic view, but what might be described as a anti-Israeli view. I cannot account for the attitude, but I am not ahistorical. I realize that virtually all of Europe and Great Britain was rabidly anti-Semitic leading up to the 1930’s, with Germany, oddly, being something of a model of tolerance and assimilation. Obviously, that must not have run too deep. I suppose what I am trying to say here is that Europe and Great Britain are not just pulling for who they perceive to be the underdog, but that the pro-Palestinian attitude is also fed by an anti-Israel/anti-Semitic attitude that is pervasive and deep. Obviously, nothing I can do changes that. Interestingly, however, the anti-Israel/anti-Semitic is not the product of Islamic immigration. Islamic immigration may actually be feeding an attitude change. It will be an interesting phenomenon to watch as it all unfolds.

Only the Uniform Code of Military Justice kept me from calling the Europeans on their hypocrisy. As usual, you had to worry about your own gov’t stabbing you in the back for standing up for what’s right. I think we got an excellent view into their arrogant, pompous, two-faced view from Fitz the poster a few weeks ago and his, Ah, therz no 1zz with any brainzz heir, so I go now”. Hey Fritz, you big giant weanie, no one in the Middle East thinks that because you sell them chemicals and tanks you’re their friend. It’s only a matter of time before they blow up Berlin.

I think criticism of Mirren is perhaps a bit premature. Unlike Redgrave and Jolie who’ve made their views known, I don’t think the same can be said of Mirren. Just because she has accepted a role in a movie which may or may not be critical of Israel, she is just an actress looking for a job. An actor need not agree with the politics of the film he’s starring in. I’m not stating that it’s OK for actors to star in hateful propaganda films, or that it’s OK for an American actor to star in a blatantly anti-American film like ‘Valley of the Wolves:Iraq’, but everyone has a story to tell, and if that story can be put on film, it shouldn’t be hampered by politics.

Oh yeah,
Helen Mirren was really, really hot in ‘Excalibur’.

Norman Blitzer on June 1, 2007 at 2:27 am

Why is it that Hollywood, land of Spielberg, Streisand, Katzenberg, and many other influential Jews, has no problem demonizing Israel? Do they secretly hope for genocide? Did Speilberg not actually make “Shindler’s List” and develop his holocaust video project?
If Steven Speilberg were to come out and say, “enough is enough,” that would put an end to the GROWING trend toward anti-Israel (read anti-Semitic) films.

sonomaca on June 1, 2007 at 9:31 am

Well Normie,
If an actor doesn’t necessarily have to agree with the politics of a film they star in, what’s there to say about their integrity or lack thereof? Oh yea, this is the movie industry…I reckon a dollar will make a whore out of anybody.
Why don’t you go back to smackin’ yer rat and quit clogging up this site with your liberal drivel!

Debbie:
The British have had a bug up their collective asses regarding Israel since 1949 when the fledgling IAF (using Czech supplied captured German Messerschmitt’s) shot down 5 R.A.F. Spitfires over the Negev (for no Israeli losses).

Israel is the aggressor. Territories have been illegally occupied for 45 years. (See UN security council resolutions) As an aggressor, Israel can’t use self-defense to legitimize its use of force against the resister’s of its aggression. Furthermore, the Rome Statute (which has been ratified by about 170 countries) considers Israel’s presence in the occupied territories as war crimes. The only reason why Israel is portrayed as the victim is because of the Israel Lobbyists in the US. Go do some research for yourselves.

JC on December 12, 2010 at 5:03 pm

And idiots, being against Israel’s foreign policy does not make you an anti-semite. I hope whoever confuses the two goes to hell.

JC on December 12, 2010 at 5:04 pm

Wow, you are soo racist! You really see no problem that israel bulldozes arab houses? Terrorists only recently started fighting back and anyways.
If you are a good Jew, shouldn’t you be promoting peace between Palestine and Israel? Like me?

Sagie on January 15, 2011 at 3:40 am

Really badly, one sided article, clearly bias and just can’t stand the fact that anyone could support Palestine in anyway. Perhaps a little more wider reading in this subject area is needed, or perhaps some time in israel/ palestine with an open mind will add some deeper perspective. Why don’t some people realise that we are all people and must respect each other, too much blood has been spilt and unfortunately there are far too many narrow minded people surrounding the palestinian Israel conflict that any real developments are slow or non existent. I will be interested in seeing the movie and then save my opinions until after I have seen it, seems a little fairer that way. By the way British and European media are far more balanced than the states on this issue, but what had to be said is that there is so many more murders by Israelis on a weekly and daily basis that go unreported, there are huge injustices happening hence many people in the world are against the israels illegal occupation.

It’s a shame that you can’t see that history repeats itself. The jews were persecuted during WWII and thus they persecute the Palestinians. The propaganda created by the Nazis is exactly the type of propaganda you are creating here. The fact is that Palestinian people lived on the land for centuries where extremist jews have built settlements recognised internationally as illegal. And for their fight to return to the land which was stolen from them, whether by terrorist means or not, the Palestinians continue to suffer under Israeli occupation through a wrath of war crimes and human rights violations, a suffering which has lasted for much longer than that of the jews in the Nazi concentration camps. Peace is a two way street that you should not blockade to only allow those who move in your direction to pass.

Suzan on February 6, 2011 at 7:19 pm

Schlussel, people like you who brand the Palestinians terror loving people, whilst ignoring the atrocities committed by the state of Israel only succeed in making themselves look ridiculously biased therefore rendering your “blog” or page of pro-zionist propaganda as I would call it entirely redundant.

The prescriber should be aware that these figures cannot be used to predict the incidence of side effects in the course of usual medical practice where patient characteristics and other factors differ from those which prevailed in the clinical trials. ,

Good lord – what a lot of tripe you Yankee Zionists spout. What hate-filled propaganda. But then, you don’t look like the brightest bulb in the box….

Learn to spell. It might make your spewing a bit less laughable.

Love how Arabs say “territories”. Lets start with the indegenous people of Iraq, and lebanon, etc… arabs slaughtered 2/3ds of the indegenous Iraqi people in the 1920’s with the help of Britain ofcourse. No one talks about it. But surely these indegenous people who these “arabs” define with the ideology of Pan Arabism refer to them as arabs as well. However, the indegenous people kicked arab, turkish, and kurdish ass in the 1944 war. And I believe it was Winston Churchill who said “The Assyrians saved Iraq from falling under Nazi occupation”. Yes, well, if only Arabs knew what an Assyrian is. They would know there first language is Aramaic, they are originally from the tribe of Abraham who split, and gave birth to the Jews. So, hypocrite Arabs shut your mouth. You have confiscated enough lands. But, I wont say Arabs because not all Arabs are bad. Just the ones who believe in the cult religion of Islam. You people should read accurate history books. The Middle east is not LAWRENCE OF ARABIA!!! By the way, I am not an Assyrian myself, but hell, know that Mesoptamia named Iraq by the British idiots just like present palestinie were names given to these lands by them. The Brits have caused more problems. They are not heros but cowards who were sent home in body bags in the second war. Had it not been for America or its allies there would be no British pansies left. I do not understand the fascination with people who have terrible teethe. Ugh they are just nasty. These people believe its more polite to fart then burp. But, it was Mahandis Gahndi who said “if you see two fish arguing in the bottom of the sea you know the British were there”.Grow a brain people.As once again for the arabs there was no word arab in those regions until Muhammed you morons. The ancient Palestinians had not affiliation with arabic, or arabs. They were Cannanite. I am not saying Palestinians do not deserve to live. I mean the 70% of the Jordanian population is Palestinian. But, an arab is an Arab so you have plenty of lands. This is not a war about lands it is a war about the mosque. I bet the Palestinians “arabs” do not know what they are even fighting for. As for me. Screw them all. When the prophecy holds still. Arabs will remeber it is not in quantity but quality. Israel has the right to exist period.
