Wikileaks: Sony emails reveal Hollywood execs work for Israel

Top Hollywood bosses enjoy a strong relationship with the Israeli government and various pro-Israel lobbying groups across the United States, according to a cache of Sony internal emails leaked to Wikileaks and published for the first time last week.

The emails reveal a dinner between Sony executives and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu; the presenter of American X-Factor chiding actress Natalie Portman aggressively for her views on Israel; meetings between top entertainment chiefs and the Israeli consulate-general; close ties between Sony’s Co-Chairperson and various pro-Israel lobbying groups; and film chiefs planning, in detail, a new documentary about the rise of anti-Semitism in Europe, about which the emails also reflect rising concern. ...

“TEPCO’s paid consultant from the US, Dale Klein is pushing TEPCO’s continuing quest to dump contaminated water into the ocean. The reason given today is that he claims it is harmless if you dilute it with other water. A ton of highly contaminated water is a ton of highly contaminated water, even if you add another ton of cleaner water to the release. This is an old industry PR tactic that is in dire need of retirement.”SimplyInfo.org (Mar. 31 2015)

Brainwashing

ta7yafilisteen:

Scottish primary school calls Palestinians ‘terrorists’ in homework worksheet.. this is absurd. Just know the Scottish do support Palestine but this is just ignorant from the primary school!

Here’s the story: http://m.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-31727699

Brainwashing children.

When propaganda enters our education system this seriously we know we are taking too much of a backseat.

Lack of ability for abstract thinking.

  • eretzyisrael: I oppose IAW [Israeli Apartheid Week] because, unlike former South Africa, Israel doesn’t have separate water fountains, benches and football stadiums depending on the colour of your skin.

  • frompalestinewithlove: But they do have separate roads for illegal settlers, separate ID’s, and separate laws, all depending on whether you’re Jewish/Israeli or not!

UK government tries to smear "boycott Israel" call as anti-Jewish | The Electronic Intifada

“In one section, the [recent British government] report uses the following wording:

Calls to boycott contact with academics working in Israel are an assault on academic freedom and intellectual exchange. We recommend that pro-democracy lecturers in the new University and College Lecturers Union are given every support to combat such selective boycotts that are anti-Jewish in practice. We would urge the new union’s executive and leadership to oppose the boycott.

The genuine Palestinian statement on academic boycott, however, makes it clear that individual Israeli academics are not the target of the boycott call. Rather, the boycott targets Israeli academic institutions. Guidelines issued by the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI), state:

Anchored in precepts of international law and universal human rights, the BDS [boycott, divestment and sanctions] movement, including PACBI, rejects on principle boycotts of individuals based on their identity (such as citizenship, race, gender, or religion) or opinion. If, however, an individual is representing the State of Israel or a complicit Israeli institution (such as a dean, rector, or president), or is commissioned/recruited to participate in Israel’s efforts to “rebrand” itself, then her/his activities are subject to the institutional boycott the BDS movement is calling for.

It is also worth noting that many BDS advocates signed a 2012 letter against all forms of racism and bigotry. That letter opposes ‘the cynical and baseless use of the term anti-Semitism as a tool for stifling criticism of Israel or opposition to Zionism, as this assumes simply because someone is Jewish, they support Zionism or the the colonial and apartheid policies of the State of Israel, a false generalization.’”

“Other problematic aspects of the government report include the portrayal of sympathy and solidarity with Palestinian victims of the Israeli war machine by local authorities in Britain as somehow equating to anti-Semitism, as seen in statements such as: ‘This year we also saw councils misjudging their remits, with Leicester City Council, banning Israeli-manufactured products, and Tower Hamlets flying the Palestinian flag.’

In portraying Palestine solidarity as anti-Semitic, the report hews to the line held by the State of Israel, which attempts to claim a representative role in respect of the global Jewish population. In reality, of course, many Jews around the world either have little interest in or reject Israel’s acts.

Claiming that actions such as the flying of the Palestinian flag by the London borough of Tower Hamlets and by other councils in Britain are associated with anti-Semitism obscures and cheapens the existence of a genuine problem of anti-Semitism in many parts of Europe.”

“Antony Lerman — a genuine expert on the problem of anti-Semitism and anti-Jewish violence in Europe — has strongly criticized the CST [Community Security Trust, a Brithsh “charity” which purports to monitor anti-Semitism] for its conflation of anti-Semitism with any moves to question the behavior of the State of Israel.

Lerman accused the CST in 2014 of ‘abusing its mandate’ by going beyond its proper — and entirely legitimate — role of ensuring the safety of Britain’s Jewish community, and instead choosing to defend indefensible acts such as the mass killing of civilians in Gaza.

Lerman went on to say of the CST that its acts in ‘providing political cover for Israel in this way takes the CST into the realm of partisan political action that hardly seems compatible with its charitable status.’

He also suggested that the CST was ‘muddy[ing] the waters when they seem to be encouraging hysteria and feeding paranoia’ through the organization’s claims that anti-Israeli protests during the summer 2014 onslaught on Gaza constituted, first and foremost, a wave of anti-Semitism.”

Palestinian civil society condemns Canadian government disinformation and repression against boycott movement | BDSmovement.net

“Rather than seeking to hold Israel to account for its war crimes during the recent military assault on Gaza and its intensified colonization of the occupied West Bank, particularly in Jerusalem and the Jordan Valley, the Canadian government is further deepening its collaboration with Israel’s occupation and launching a shameful, propagandistic attack on free speech in the process.”

“The Canadian government’s continued unconditional support for Israel’s colonial policies and its smear campaign against BDS highlight the deeply ideological and reactionary character of this government. Canada is sending Israel the message that it can act with total impunity in violating human rights and international law.”

“Sadly, while claiming to defend free speech the current Canadian government is among the most repressive in the west; it has gone farther than most in suppressing free speech and infringing the rights of its own civil society, including trade unions, community and faith groups, to participate in human rights campaigning, as in boycotts against Israel’s injustices.”

“At a time when people of conscience the world over are joining the Palestinian BDS movement for freedom, justice and equality and connecting it with their own struggles for social and economic justice, equal rights, indigenous rights, minority rights, and environmental protection, the Canadian government is standing on the wrong side of history, supporting a pernicious regime of Israeli occupation, colonialism and apartheid.”

— Rafeef Ziadah, a secretariat member of the the Palestinian BDS National Committee

“Hasbara (Hebrew for ‘explanation’ or ‘propaganda’) is a tactic used mostly on campuses to disseminate misinformation hiding or distracting from the crimes committed by the apartheid State of Israel. Hasbara seeks to influence mass audiences explaining these actions and policies, despite the fact that many are violations of international law, UN Resolution and are ethically unjustifiable.”israelwc (Oct. 11 2014)
