American anti-Palestinian mindset at work, unfortunately

by ray goodlass

Yesterday Emad Burnat, co-director of ‘5 Broken Cameras’ and a Palestinian Oscar nominee, was held at Los Angeles International Airport. After calls to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences he was eventually allowed in, but really! Is this yet another example of the USA dancing to Israel’s tune?

Given that we need the USA to make its massive amounts of aid to Israel (well over $8m a day, every day!) to be conditional over issues such as Israel halting settlement building, dismantling the wall, and returning to pre-1967 boundaries we need a major change in both its mind-set and policies.
