Anti-Semitic Golden Globes Awards
In Friday's Jerusalem Post, columnist Caroline Glick wrote:
It's official: Anti-Semitism is "in." The decision to award the Palestinian film Paradise Now the Golden Globes Award for best foreign film tells us that Palestinian terror against Israelis has become so acceptable that it is now Hollywood kitsch. The sight of the Jewish American diva Sarah Jessica Parker, of Sex in the City fame, excitedly announcing that a film which glorifies the mass murder of Jews in Israel was the big winner for 2005 only served to demonstrate how deep this trivialization of evil now runs.
Let's say, for the sake of argument, that the award of best foreign film to Paradise Now is not intended to glorify suicide bombings, but to "understand" the mindset of suicide bombers.
Even if that is the case, would Hollywood be so brazen as to give a major award to a film that, say, tried to "understand" the human aspect of Mohammed Atta, the ringleader of the 9/11 suicide hijackings, who crashed one of the planes into the World Trade Center?
If, as I believe, the answer is no, then Glick is right to lament that "Anti-Semitism is 'in.'"
