On Sunday, I noted (on a tip by WC) that a director and Oscar nominee Elia Suleiman said he wished to “drown Israel” but since he couldn’t, his films are meant to accomplish the same “resistance” in a different way.
Tomer Ilan noticed that the Israeli Education Ministry lists his films as “recommended” in the official high school curriculum for Cinema.
This seems to have gotten the attention of B’Tslamo, a pro-Israel NGO. Makor Rishon reports today that B’Tsalmo’s Shai Glick appealed to the Minister of Education Rafi Peretz to remove any films by Suleiman from the curriculum, and he did.
As far as I know, EoZ was the first to publicize this – I couldn’t find any articles in Hebrew media about Suleiman’s hate.
