    Dubai of the UAE a Jew - Israel hating bigoted nation and should be shown up for exactly what it is. Who is going to do that? Will Israel lodge a complaint and objection to the International Federation of Television Archives? Does the IFTA feel outrage at Dubai's position and if so will it express that outrage by cancelling its conference and film festival in Dubai? IFTA says and does nothing and goes forward with its conference/festival in Dubai, the IFTA will be complicit in Dubai's anti-Israel bigotry. In such case, what if any consequence then will flow to the IFTA for its complicity? If nothing is done, then once again Jews and Israel are reduced to whimpering and moaning, but doing nothing about insults and denial of rights and opportunities to them only because they are Jews and Israelis. Jews and Israelis need to stand up for themselves and do more than moan and groan!
