Wednesday, September 23, 2009Shocking video: the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival - Exposed This two-part short film about the 2009 SF Jewish Film Festival speaks more eloquently than a 100 blog posts about what is wrong with the Film Festival and how important it is that organized Jewish community act to ensure that something like this never happens again under Federation auspices.
...perhaps the most obscene is the treatment of the sole pro-Israel questioner, who was jeered, manhandled and bullied as he tried to, as some are fond of saying, speak truth to power.
I recognize some of the anti-Israel activists as the sisters, Donna and Darlene Wallach of San Jose, and near the end of part one, in the bit about the vandalism of Israeli products at Trader Joes, Santa Cruz activist and 911 Truther, Maureen Smith appears on the right in front of a large banner.
