The EU publishes nuanced guidelines which attack the settlements but not the legitimacy of the Jewish state, and Mira Nair just wants to destroy the Jewish state with the idea that it is simply about religion. The rather obvious fact that Jews are also a people and have suffered miserably from not having their own state she either does not get or prefers to ignore. The fact that it is easier to be a Muslim in Israel than a Jew in an Arab country does not make an impression on her. I sure hope the 92nd street Y does not consider screening another one of her films.
