Amidst last night’s glowing coverage of the “Golden Globes” awards ceremony, someone forgot their outrage. Or rather all of Hollywood did–and so did the mainstream media covering the event.
The ceremony, whose voters are members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HPFA), gave its award for “Best Foreign Language Movie” to “Paradise Now,” a movie which glorifies and sympathizes with Palestinian homicide bombers. An excellent review of “Paradise Now,” by Germany’s Matthias Kuntzel, appears here and is a must read for anyone considering wasting time and money on this sickening movie.
To add insult to injury, the HPFA lists the movie “Paradise Now, Palestine.” Are they saying, as the movie “Paradise Now” does, that ALL of Israel is Palestine? That is how the map–known as the Map of Hate–obtrusively displayed and discussed in the film, depicts the world.
Apparently, Hollywood Foreign Press Association members have a different map than we do. There is NO Palestine on the map. It is not a country, as much as they’d like it to be. Unless they are choosing the map of The World According to HAMAS and Al-Qaeda.
And apparently they are. Not to mention that they are buying into the old anti-Semitic canards, repeated in this celluloid sickness, that Jews poison Arabs’ water to destroy their sperm. It is a newer version of the same old blood libel, claiming Jews kill others for food, pastries, or some other absurd reason.
Remember this, next time you waste your time watching this vapid “awards” show that honors terrorists and mass murderers.
We, on the other hand, spent our time in a more worthy pursuit–watching “24″.
***UPDATE: Surprise, surprise. The pro-terror ADC (American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committtee) is tickled pink that “Paradise Now” won this award.
2nd UPDATE: We’re told that the Producer/Director upon winning, said something to the effect of, “We deserve rights and a home, unconditionally.” But they have a home. They want to take away others’ homes and lives, as they have already been doing for decades. There SHOULD be conditions, like stopping the committing of terrorism–cold-blooded murder–of innocent people. If they cannot live by that condition, they deserve nothing but an escalated response.
