    If Bakri who claimed to have shown the true face of the Jenin actions and claimed to have made a documentary is representing free speech why not give Goebbels a reward too? Spreading lies with footage made in a manner which makes the viewers think IDF soldiers on purpose murdered Palestinian civilians is not an act of free speech but shows clearly classic modern Arab anti semitism (90% of Arabs view Jews negative and 'only' 35% of Israeli Arab (source Haaretz)). Israeli Jews in the movie industry should be more careful with what they support or at least try to see what the movie shows they support and then have a balanced opinion. Free speech is one thing but to blindly support any Arab critizing Israel is another. Jenin Jenin was a blood libel and we all know it, but at least in Israel we have a democracy with a High Court which makes sure even this trash can be shown including the distribution of Mein Kampf and Wagner music but why give it a free speech prize?
