Palestinian Movie Banned From Film Festival for Inciting Violence

Organizers finally realize what Israel’s been saying for years: Palestinian media incites violence

By |

Israel's been complaining about ongoing Palestinian incitement to violence (in violation of the so-called "Oslo Accords") for years. Now, it seems some in the international community are finally catching on to the problem.

The Asian city-state of Singapore this month banned the screening of a Palestinian film that it deemed too "inflammatory."

The film, "Radiance of Resistance," celebrates the actions of two young Palestinian girls who routinely provoke Israeli soldiers. It was scheduled to be screened at the annual Singapore Palestinian Film Festival.

In rejecting the film, Singapore’s Infocomm Media Development Authority stated:

"In holding up the girls as role models to be emulated in an ongoing conflict, the film incites activists to continue their resistance against the alleged oppressors. The skewed narrative of the film is inflammatory and has the potential to cause disharmony amongst the different races and religions in Singapore."
