Thanks, Bobby Redford: Live From Sundance, It’s Palestinian Rappers Dissing The Jews

By Debbie Schlussel
Since “Lions for Lambs“–the first movie he’s directed in eons–is a total bomb at the box office, Robert Redford is taking a different tack: Attack the Jews.
In fact, at next year’s Sundance Film Festival in January, Mr. Redford is hosting a Palestinian propaganda movie that is being billed as one of several films that “approach serious topics in a lively way.”
It’s called “Slingshot Hip Hop,” and it’s about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict as seen by Palestinian rappers, or as USA Today falsely puts it, “a fresh examination through the unlikely lens of Palestinian rappers.” Sundance has picked the movie as “an Official Sundance Film Festival Selection,” meaning it will be promoted big-time by Sundance to all of the Hollywood elites and celebs parading around Park City, Utah, early next year and that liberal film critics there will give it high marks. That means the movie will certainly get a distribution deal (sadly, guys like Mark Cuban will jump at the chance to spread this propaganda).


Palestinian Propagandist Jackie Salloum:

Her Anti-Israel Agit-prop is Welcomed @ Sundance

Attention: Sundance and USA Today (that means you, reporter Anthony Breznican), there’s nothing “fresh” about attacking Jews and Israel on film. And–based on the trailer (which I won’t give the honor of posting here or a link)–it’s actually the same old, same old rotten, rehashed “The Jews took our Olive tree orchard, the Jews took our land, the Jews are killing us” BS with some dumb rap and American football jerseys mixed in. (Troy Aikman should sue for defamation.) In fact, based on the propaganda-filled trailer, this movie will not be anything close to an “examination.”
And it’s old news. The movie’s website says the movie is “Coming in 2005,” which means it was shot some time in 2002-2004. Um, it’s almost 2008. If this is “fresh,” I’d hate to see the expiration date on these people’s food. Obviously, no-one cared about this tripe-on-film until Robert Redford swooped in to save the day for Islamic terrorists. Can’t do it with a pure fiction propaganda film like “Lions for Lambs”? Try, try again with a fake-umentary on the Palestinians and that big, bad wolf–the JOOOOOOS.
And as for rappers, not sure how that’s “unlikely,” as we know that Muslim terrorists–including Palestinian ones–have been very active both here and abroad in using rap and the hip-hop culture to spread their tripe.
And then there’s the slingshot analogy. You know–David v. Goliath. Except that Israel, smaller than the State of New Jersey, is the David, amidst the Goliath of 22 Arab nations and many more Muslim ones who are funding and supporting the Palestinians against them.
“Slingshot Hip Hop” is directed and produced by Palestinian/Syrian Dearbornistani Jackie Reem Salloum, a woman with which I’m very familiar. I had the “privilege” of seeing her “art” in a temporary 2005 anti-Israel, anti-Semitic “art” exhibit, “Herstory,” at Dearbornistan’s Arab American National Museum (which is funded with MILLIONS of YOUR TAX DOLLARS). She had pop art exhibits of Israeli-operated Caterpillar bulldozers “killing” Palestinians and other similar propaganda fare. (One American flag-burner, Rachel Corrie, was killed by a bulldozer–which was about to take down a Palestinian terrorist weapons-smuggling house–when the driver didn’t see her and she saw him but stayed to protect the terrorists. That’s called natural selection. And over this one incident, Israelis are now “murderers by bulldozer.”) Just how much of your tax dollars went to pay her for that “art”? How much went to fund “Slingshot Hip Hop”?
(Other “art” in the exhibit included recorded interviews with Palestinian women in the Detroit area telling us how the Israelis attacked their families and a video about how Israel “massacred” hundreds in Jenin (only 26 actually died, much of them from fellow Palestinian fire) donated by the Islamic Nurse Ratched, Najah Bazzy who announced that she “is embarrassed to be an American.” Bazzy has consequently been repeatedly feted by the left-dominated Detroit Jewish Community.)
This “movie,” Jackie Salloum’s “Slingshot Hip Hop,” will be no different. In fact, based on the trailer, it’s far worse. Sadly, Ms. Salloum is ardently promoted by . . . The Voice of America?!–also funded by your taxes. And Sundance loves her celluloid agit-prop. In 2005, the film festival screened her “Planet of the Arabs,” as an “Official Sundance Film Festival Selection.”
So, where’s the balance at Sundance? Will there be any pro-Israel or anti-Islamist movies? Answer: No. They don’t believe in balance at Sundance, just as there wasn’t any in Bobby Redford’s “Lions for Lambs.” And that’s why “Slingshot Hip Hop” is an “Official Selection, Sundance Film Festival 2008.”
Two things I hate: Rap and the Palestinian terrorist cause. I’m sure it will be a huge hit on-screen . . . with liberal movie critics. With movie-going audiences, not so much.
As for Israel and those who are against Islamic terrorism, well, their cause is just. They don’t need to package it inside of a silly media genre that is all the rage among idiots.
More evidence that exporting American “culture” to our enemies doesn’t make them our friends. It only gives them a new way to more effectively market their propaganda to us.
And apparently it worked . . . on Robert Redford and his friends at Sundance.

It’s bad enough that most rap music misrepersents and gets the wrong idea of all young blacks (I’m one of them), but now our enemies are using it against Jews. I’m not suprised if most of the lyrics talk about drive by shootings.

Great post, Debbie. BTW: I have noticed many American rappers now call themselves Muslim. Makes sense, given the violent tendencies shared by the RoP and hip-hop “culture”.

Hollywood liberals, liberals anywhere: Useful Idiots — that Vladimir Lenin sure knew whereof he spoke.

I really just get so sick of this shit.
All these Hollywood morons know damned well that THEY wouldn’t want to be neighbors with the spontaneously combustible Palis. It is just the weirdest form of Jew hatred, to paint the victims as perps, and the perps as victims.

It’s just leftism. Interesting that Timmerman’s new book “Shadow Warriors” talks about the deep-rooted anti-semitism at the State Dept and CIA. The view, currently held by Rice, is that Israel is responsible for radical Islam and pretty much any other problem you want to name in the ME.
Odd, that leftist (mostly Jewish) Hollywood is in bed with the anti-Semitic Christian Brahmins at State and the anti-Semitic Irish Catholics at CIA.

Hating America and Israel are left wing fashion statements – nothing more. Whoever comes up with a more outrageous conspiracy theory or comment gets the blue star of the day, which are counted towards their leftist cool cards.

Anti-America/Anti-Israel blogger Nadia at “No Snow here” is gloating about the film being picked up at Sundance. She is also soliciting funds from people so they can contribute to post-production necessities.
She writes,
“Congratulations to Jackie Salloum! Her new film Slingshot Hip Hop, a documentary about Palestinian hip hop artists, made it into the Sundance Film Festival! Check Ibn Bint Jbeil for more clips of her films and commentary, and visit Zapagringo to learn how you can help support post-production neccessities [sic] for the film.”

“post-production necessities”
I wonder that consists of? Suicide bomb belts for youth after they are indoctrinated by the movie?

The logo for the movie, which can be seen on “No Snow Here” has the motto, “The Palestinian Lyrical Front” under the movie’s name. Presumably a war front. The movie is clearly another tactic in the war against Israel.

Thank you for all the film publicity. SInce you have not seen the film, you may be happy to hear the film promotes hope and peace. Thankfully I was able to get in at sundance among the sold-out screenings. Maybe you’re you afraid that this film may be effective in releasing the truth.

I had the “privilege” of reading your “article” and i was completley appauled at your lack of knowledge on this issue. You claimed that Mr. Redford was one-sided, but im sorry to report that you are the DEFINITION of one-sided. I just want to suggest one thing, do some more research on this topic with an open mind, but I KNOW this will be hard for you.
and one last thing… Two things I hate: Blondes and ignorant columnists.

I just had to comment on this ridiculous joke of an article. Whoever wrote it is obviously completely unaware of anything going on anywhere on earth. No one is “attacking Jews,” as you so ignorantly stated. The Palestinian cause is about fighting for human rights to land, prosperity, and peace, something the Zionists will not allow anyone who isn’t a European Jew pursue in the land they stole 62 years ago. By the way, a large number of the Palestinians the idiots in America refer to as “terrorists” are actually Christians. Christians are as discriminated against as Muslims if they are Arab. In fact, Arab Jews (you probably didn’t know they existed, because you’re completely ignorant on the subject) are discriminated against in that “country” (more like regime) as well. Go look up the websites of the various JEWISH organizations against “israel” and go call them anti-semites: satmar hasidics, neturei karta, international jewish anti-zionist network, and the list goes on.
You’re a disgusting, ignorant racist, and as soon as you see Arabs or Muslims involved in ANYTHING, people like you immediately start spewing your ridiculous garbage, trying to find anything idiotic thing you can say to find fault in anything. Get a life, you pathetic waste of life.
