Second Anti-Israel “Israeli” Film Gets Oscar Nom; Director is Israeli Draft-Dodger

By Debbie Schlussel

Yesterday, I told you about the Oscar nomination for the documentary, “The Gatekeepers.” I said that the movie would probably win because it’s an anti-Israel fraud put out by self-hating Jewish Israeli director and anti-Semite, Dror Moreh. But, thankfully, now, it looks like it might not win because the anti-Israel vote will be split. That’s because, in the same documentary category, the Academy Awards voters also nominated, “Five Broken Cameras,” another anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian “documentary” piece of propaganda.


Like “The Gatekeepers,” “Five Broken Cameras” is also made by a self-hating, far-left, Jewish Israeli director and writer, Guy Davidi, (along with a Muslim director credit for Emad Burnat–who is actually the star of the movie, not the director). Davidi is an Israeli draft dodger who proudly brags in his IMDB bio of his refusal to serve in the IDF and his “activism” on behalf of Palestinian Muslims. And, yet, Israel never prosecuted or punished Davidi in any way for his draft dodging. Instead, the government helped fund his anti-Israel propaganda, including this piece of crap. His Oscar-nominated fake-umentary “documents” the “brave” fight of a Palestinian farmer against the “evil” Israeli soldiers–normally a shoo-in for an Oscar. IMDB describes the movie as, “A documentary on a Palestinian farmer’s chronicle of his nonviolent resistance to the actions of the Israeli army.”

The movie details a Palestinian Muslim’s use of five video cameras to film and harass Israeli soldiers when they try to build a security fence to keep out terrorists from Israel, but the IMDB description, of course, doesn’t tell you that part. It also doesn’t tell you that this Palestinian Muslim, Emad Burnat, supports Islamic terrorism and won’t denounce it. He’s apparently a supporter of HAMAS, Islamic Jihad, Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, and the rest of that group of mass murderers. His and the rest of the Palestinian people’s support for Islamic terrorist attacks against Israel is exactly why the fence is necessary, though this movie won’t tell you any of that.

Oh, and here is the relevant part of Davidi’s IMDB bio (which he, himself, wrote):

In the age of 19 he refused doing his obligatory military service in the Israeli Army after being enrolled for 3 months. In the years 2000-2002 he was a cinema teacher in a High School in Tel Aviv. In 2000 he studied one year in Tel Aviv University Cinema School and dropped out. From 2002-2003 he lived in Paris and speaks French. After coming back to Israel he started working as cameraman with documentary filmmakers. From 2003 he became engaged with the Israeli branch of Indymedia and filmed many Video Reports and short documentaries about Israel social and Political issues, many of the documentaries were filmed in the Palestinian Occupied territories, dealing with the Israeli Occupation. In 2005 he studied directing actors in Amir Orian’s “The Room Theater”. From 2005 he has been teaching cinema and video to Israeli artists and activists in private workshops. In 2005 for the creation of his first long documentary he spent 3 months living in the West-Bank village of Bil’in.

Too bad he didn’t stay there. And, if his bent isn’t clear enough, he designates the “setting” in most of his movies set in Israel’s Judea and Samaria as, “Occupied Palestinian Territory.” “Women Defying Barriers,” a 2010 anti-Israel movie he made in Gaza, is also set in “Occupied Palestinian Territory,” even though HAMAS controls Gaza, and Israel long ago gave it up to the savages.

Yup, this is how bad the Oscars have become–that they nominate not just one anti-Israel film by self-hating Jews, but two of ’em. Osama Bin Laden is laughing from his watery grave, just as Yasser Arafat (the part of him that hasn’t been exhumed under some fraudulent theory of poison) is laughing from his formerly AIDS-infested grave.

Oscar loves a Jew-hater. Just ask Vanessa Redgrave.

Watch the trailer . . .

There’s plenty of that in Israel… people say Jews can’t be anti-Semites. Oh they can be… as films like “The Gatekeepers” and “Five Broken Cameras” clearly demonstrate.

As the old, true and trite saying has it, “you can take the Jew out of the Ghetto but you can’t take the Ghetto out of the Jew.”
There may be a handful of Muslim Zionists. But there are a lot more Jewish anti-Zionists out there.

Debbie, such pukes are everywhere here. You have your Sean Penns we have these shits. This far left socialist ultra liberalism gave you Obama and the people who would see merit in such garbage. Here, in Israel, they have about as much significance as flatulence in a hurricane. It is the far left marshmallow brained loonies in your country that would invest their sick efforts with importance.

Arn on January 11, 2013 at 10:27 am

    Arn, in Israel the Left is tremendously powerful. I’m not sure why you claim otherwise.

    skzion on January 11, 2013 at 2:40 pm

      The Left may be noisy and busy supporting all Israel haters… but “tremendously powerful”???!!! Not here, fella, not by any stretch of the imagination.They are fringe group sick with distemper – the target of ridicule and blistering criticism. Encountering them (as in this case)invariably produces a mouthful of saliva looking for an address. Maybe you were thinking the ultra-orthodox religious establishment.

      Arn on January 11, 2013 at 4:15 pm

        So, Arn, your IDF follows a “purity of arms” doctrine because the rabbis have too much power?

        Your country kicks Jews out of their homes and places Muslims in their place based on a right-wing point of view?

        The saturation of media with leftists has no consequences?


        skzion on January 12, 2013 at 5:10 am

          So much for Arn.

Liberal world view makes no sense, it is very twisted. Protecting the civil liberties of criminals are more important than protecting law-abiding citizens from crime. Liberals claim empathy for victims of crime, but defend the rights of criminals. Anti-gun lobby in America, aims to diasarm law-abiding citizens to be sitting ducks for criminal elements in society. Harvey Weinstein calls Roman Polanski’s sexual abuse of a child “a so called crime” Weird Obsession with same sex marriages. The Jimmy Savile Scandal in Britain, reflects how these liberal celebrities have abused their fame and power.

    The same people become incredibly reactionary when they are impacted by various things. If a very young daughter of Harvey Weinstein’s had been drugged up and raped by a producer, would he refer to it as a so called crime? Would Harvey Weinstein be pleased if the person who raped his daughter got a nominal sentence and psychiatric counseling as part of a plea deal? Is it likely that Harvey would be thrilled that the admitted rapist simply took off rather than completing a sentence that,if I recall correctly, was roughly a year? No, Harvey Weinstein would have used his influence to make sure that the rapist did not receive bail, and that no deputy prosecutor in the county would even negotiate a plea deal with the accused rapist.

    Elites take care of themselves, while speaking of Social Justice.

      How true. Harvey Weinstein holds unlimited power and influence in America. The Obama Administration owes him big time. He is about to call in his markers. It is a sorry state of matters.

      Chaim Paddaman on January 11, 2013 at 3:31 pm

Think about it. These people have careers that deal in fantasy (directors, screen wtiters, etc) and pretending to be people you’re not (actors). No wonder so many of them are warped.

TwoPak NotSure on January 11, 2013 at 1:20 pm

Only two anti-Israeli films nominated this year? Heck, that’s an improvement!

dee on January 11, 2013 at 3:29 pm

I have treble the amount of understanding (and that means ‘knowing’ NOT that I am in any way sympathetic to…) of the Moooooslim side than the Jewish (or I should correctly say ‘self-hating Jew’) side of this issue. I just know I know the Moooslim side is 100% WRONG and the Jewish side is correct. I knew that even before I knew ANYTHING on the Mooooslim side. From day one. Baked in the cake.

With that said I have to ask the learned Jews here (because I can’t for the life of me GET. IT.)…what the hell has and/or is going on in Israel (that I would not know…I don’t know much about Jewish life in Israel…) that makes these self-hating Jews side with the devil?

I mean it. How can it be? I can’t wrap my mind around it.

As long as I can remember I have been fascinated by serial killers and the evil that they do (because I want them stopped and destroyed) but never in my life have I EVER had sympathy for the serial killers.

Self-hating Jews seem to like the ‘serial killers’. I need to know WHY! It is foreign to me and I MUST be missing something.

It just does NOT make sense and I need to know WHY! Why??

Skunky on January 11, 2013 at 4:07 pm

    Hi Skunky, this isn’t exactly an answer to your question…but the only thing I can think of is that self-haters in general (no matter what their ethnic background) feel…guilty…about something. I’ve no idea what they might feel guilty about.

    I suspect that many white liberals feel guilt about something that happened hundreds of years before they were born – slavery.
    With respect, Nir

Debbie as you have alway said it before, the Jews are their own worst enemy. No need for anti-semites to kill the jews when the very own jews will happily provide the rope to hang themselves with.

Mario on January 13, 2013 at 11:14 pm

Both movies are great and the author of this article is a racist Muslim hating cunt. Thats all. No movie that says anything wrong about the israel would be good for her.

Rob on January 29, 2013 at 1:53 pm

    Law-abiding moderate Muslims are appreciated and welcome in all societies. The author’s article is based on radical Islamic terrorists, that aims to murder innocent Jewish women and children. Jews will never be sitting ducks again. Once bitten twice shy. Liberals will always attempt to play the race card, it is so predictable.

    Chaim Paddaman on February 7, 2013 at 3:58 pm

So who ever says anything critical about Israel or its policies is an anti-semite

And any Jew who says anything critical about Israel or its policies is a “self hating jew”

Basically what you are saying that The Israeli government is perfect and above all criticisms

And that an Israeli can do no wrong in this world

Do you hear yourself?

Ari on February 25, 2013 at 12:08 am

It seems you as a human being focused too much on hate and are filled with hate

Barry on February 25, 2013 at 12:09 am

The Israeli Government is far from perfect, but are under obligation to protect it citizens. The Liberals would preferably want the Israelis to be victims of another genocide. Israel has the right to protect its sovereignty and citizens. Ari,what is your solution?
