Unmasked Screening

And my week ended off with attending the screening of Unmasked: Judeophobia.

And listening to the panel discussion led by director Gloria Greenfield with Yisrael Newman, Manfred Gerstenfeld, Robert Wistrich, Andrea Levin, Daniel Diker and Ben-Dror Yemini:-

The [panelists were quite critical of the Israel governments (most of its members over the years lacking any Western-style advanced education and background needed in the socio-political fields), the academia (too ignoring of antisemtism), the media (downplaying or ignoring it) and more as regards not only the traditional antisemtism but especially that emanating from the liberal/progressive circles as well as the Islamic variety.  Noted, too, was the 'support' antisemites abroad obtained from within Israeli society with Haaretz and Israeli film makers taking the most hits.
