“It’s no great secret why the Jewish agencies continue to trumpet support for the discredited policies of this failed administration. They see defense of Israel as their number-one goal, trumping all other items on the agenda. That single-mindedness binds them ever closer to a White House that has made combating Islamic terrorism its signature campaign. The campaign’s effects on the world have been catastrophic. But that is no concern of the Jewish agencies.”
- December 8, 2006 statement by JJ Goldberg,editor of Forward (the leading Jewish weekly in the United States)

She used to get the bus every day on her way to early-morning prayers.
"Every two or three days, someone would tell me to sit in the back, sometimes politely and sometimes not," she told the newspaper. That's where "modesty" requires women to sit. One morning, though, it was worse. A man got on the bus and demanded her seat near the front, even though there were others available.
"I said, I'm not moving and he said, 'I'm not asking you, I'm telling you'," she recalled. "Then he spat in my face and at that point, I was in high adrenaline mode and called him a son-of-a-bitch, which I am not proud of. Then I spat back. At that point, he pushed me down and people on the bus were screaming that I was crazy.
"Four men surrounded me and slapped my face, punched me in the chest, pulled at my clothes, beat me, kicked me." The other passengers, she says, told her she was stupid for not moving. "People blamed me for not knowing my place and not going to the back of the bus where I belong."
According to one eyewitness, nobody helped her. "I tried to help, but someone was stopping me from getting up. My phone's battery was dead, so I couldn't call the police. I yelled for the bus driver to stop. He stopped once, but he didn't do anything."

Five Israelis were seen filming as jet liners ploughed into the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001 ...
One of the Israelis says about filming the burning WTC, "Our purpose was to document the event."
"Also, five of the Israelis came to the FBI's attention after they were seen by New Jersey residents on Sept. 11 making fun of the World Trade Center ruins and going to extreme lengths to photograph themselves in front of the wreckage. The FBI seized and developed their photos, one of which shows Sivan Kurzberg flicking a cigarette lighter in front of the smouldering ruins in an apparently celebratory gesture." - The Globe & Mail (12/17/01)

A trailer-esque montage spectacle of Hollywood's relentless vilification and dehumanization of Arabs and Muslims.
This short has it all - art, political commentary, social meaning, action, explosions, pop culture... but mainly a point. How many times have you watched a film or a TV show that shows Arabs as terrorists, idiots, or somehow lesser than any other race of man? Hundreds? Thousands? Maybe more, and Palestinian/American artist/filmmaker Jacqueline Salloum seems to have spent a little time documenting them, because the concept of Planet of the Arabs is that she's made an action movie trailer out of scenes from existing Hollywood films, all of which come together to make an alarming point about how Arabs are showin in cinema. From the early days of cartoons, to the Muppet Show, to Chuck Norris films, to Back to the Future, we've been eating a steady diet of 'the Middle East wants to kill you' for so darn long, it takes something clever like this to wake us up to the truth. Inspired use of clips from the film Network illustrate an all-too salient point. We're the madmen. This is a must-see, and so is Jacqueline Salloum's website..
