    It’s not about the “occupation” — Arabs in France beat anti-occupation Israeli film director

    It’s not about the “occupation” — Arabs in France beat anti-occupation Israeli film director

    A life lesson — Israeli director critical of occupation beaten by Arabs in France:

    Arab men assaulted an Israeli film director in southern France following the screening of his film criticizing Israeli occupation.

    Yariv Horowitz was rendered unconscious as a result of the beating Monday by several men after a screening of “Rock the Casbah” at a film festival in Aubin, Army Radio reported Thursday.

    He was treated at the scene and returned later that day to the festival. The report said it was unclear whether his attackers knew Horowitz was Israeli.

    The film is set in 1989 during the first intifada and focuses on 18-year-old Tomer, a soldier stationed in Gaza, who is sent to avenge the death of his fellow soldier and comes to some realizations about the political situation surrounding Israeli occupation.

    The beating was quite severe:

    Horowitz lost consciousness as a result of the beating and was administered medical treatment before returning to the festival, where shortly afterward he was given the award for his film.

    “I grew up in a very left-wing family,” Horowitz said after the screening in Berlin. “I remember that when I would come home from the territories as a soldier, my mother would say that the soldiers were animals. And I said, ‘One day I’ll show you how it really was.”

    It’s not about the “occupation” — which is a misnomer anyway as the West Bank was illegally occupied by Jordan prior to 1967..

    Jews and Israelis are attacked frequently in European cities.

    The attackers don’t care what their politics are, being Jewish and/or Israeli is enough..

    Being a leftist Jew will only get you so far. A security wall comes in handy.

    This reminds me of the liberal Jews helping rabid leftists foist hate and violence within America — who remind me of the Jews who worked the Nazi concentration camps incinerating other Jews — only to be later incinerated themselves.

    Black people can be very stupid.
    White people can be very stupid.
    And yes, smart Jews can be the most stupid of all.

    Islam is primarily a racist, misogynist hate group and aggressive political movement.

    In the US, the black muslims and Nation of Islam were also a hate-based movement first described as The Hate That Hate Produced, in contrast to Luther King’s peaceful, Christian love-based protest movement.
