German Jews do not Want British Director Honoured at Berlin Film Festival, Accusing Him of Antisemitism

FSWC Reports:


Germany's Jewish community has strongly criticized a decision to award British director Ken Loach, one of the most prominent activists of the cultural and academic boycott movement against Israel, an honorary prize at the Berlin International Film Festival, also known as Berlinale. 

In recent years, Loach has applied heavy personal pressure on major film festivals around the world to cancel any event which is even partially funded by the State of Israel, basically calling for an economic boycott against the Jewish state.
