Israel seeks ban on film documenting its crimes in Jenin

MEMO | October 28, 2020

An Israeli Knesset committee has called for banning a film documenting Israel’s siege on the occupied Palestinian West Bank city of Jenin in 2002 and the crimes carried out against its residents, Quds Press reported yesterday.

The Foreign and Security Committee at the Israeli Knesset submitted a draft resolution that will be raised to the government’s Attorney General, Avichai Mandelblit, demanding a ban on the film ‘Jenin, Jenin’.

The film was produced by the Palestinian-Israeli producer Mohammad Bakeri. It documents the Israeli crimes during the invasion of the Palestinian city through accounts by eyewitnesses.

The Knesset committee claimed that the film distorts the image of Israeli soldiers and stressed it should not be displayed.

The film has been beset with legal action since it was first aired 18 years ago. In 2003, Israel’s film ratings board claimed that it was a “distorted presentation of events in the guise of democratic truth which could mislead the public.” … Full article

  1. “Hollywood” never lets us forget about how evil the Germans were in WWII and constantly tells us all about something called the Holocaust, but doesn’t want the world to know what is happening on the West Bank in the past 20 years(and longer)….and immediately want’s to censor this movie.
    They can’t have it both ways………Propaganda is a very powerful tool, and “Hollywood” doesn’t own it.

  2. What Israel seeks here is more than censorship. It seeks to hide its crimes. It seeks to allow crimes to be nullified. It seeks to continue such, for if past crimes can not be known, then future crimes can have the same result.

    It has been at war before its inception, came into being by war and continues by war.. and the warfare is more than by military means; it is so varied, so justified by its willing participants and partisans, so deceptively carried out, so by-now accepted as status quo, that it’s hardly recognized.

    Israel is a terrorist nation/state, made there and supported by its partisans abroad, whether bribed, intimidated or collected by their cowardice.

    How else to define what is continuously shown, what can continuously be seen?

    America: can you not see what is your alliance, your complicity?
