Safe Mode: On
Defamation (What is anti-Semitism today?)

The True Stories strand, which showcases the best international feature documentaries, continues with Yoav Shamir's controversial, personal exploration which asks, "What is anti-Semitism today?" Is it a real and continuous danger that requires eternal vigilance or a tactic used by right-wing Zionists to discredit and cow their critics?

Among those he interviews are Abe Foxman, head of the Anti-Defamation League, who is adamant that anti-Semitism is rife and must be exposed; while Norman Finkelstein, author of The Holocaust Industry: The Exploitation of Jewish Suffering, claims that anti-Semitism is being used for political gain.

Opinions differ and tempers flare but Shamir's directness and wry humour, as shown in his other films including Checkpoint, 5 Days and Flipping Out, elevate the mood as he tackles extremely difficult questions.

  • Comment of user 'gregory_peckory' has been deleted by author (after account deletion)!
  • Incredible what this guy in the ADL says about the Jews 'always' being the soft target & 'victims' . Yes indeed they were victims of holocaust and still like other minorities suffer hate crimes , but saying that the black guy in the street who wants to attack will always go for the Jew & not the black brother is bit over the top
