    Dear Comrade, Tell me what makes the Palestinians our comrades and not the Israelis ? I'm afraid the memo on selective brotherhood and boycotting the Arts as a path to peace did not reach my desk. It is true that if we resist looking at art then we can continue on our merry way and collectively criticize a group of people. We will remain ignorant of the possibility of diversity in those we don't see as comrades and will feel free to criticize them for their collective punishment. Could it be that your films will also pack dissension and confrontation into every "resistance" fighter ? Would you then favor a boycott of your films? If you cannot envision a world where the minimum of cultural exchange takes place then you must believe in confrontation as the solution. So what exactly is your complaint ?
