Apparently showing it in our Festival will be considered Normalization.
The organizers of the Cairo International
Film Festival that is scheduled to take place next February have banned
the Israeli film "The Band's Visit" from the event, Yedioth Ahronoth
A copy of the film, which tells the story of
an Egyptian band's visit to Israel, was recently sent to the organizers
of the film festival. "If we were to show this film, it would be
considered normalization (of relations with Israel)," organizers of the
Egyptian film festival said in a statement after viewing the movie.
According to them, the scene that
features the protagonist, Ronit Elkabetz, engaging in boisterous sexual
relations with one of the Egyptian band's members who is played by
Saleh Bakri is "shocking and will not be well-received" even though—it
is important to note—the racy scene is merely insinuated.
Oh, so it has a sex scene between an egyptian guy with a hot israeli jewish chick. Yeah, could see why that would be problematic. You see, that's how the Jooz want to sucker us into normalization: By showing us how hot their chicks are and how we can have sex with them. But thankfully, our Actor's syndicate are on to the jooozzz, and are even protecting our gullible brothers in Dubai from the wiles of hot sexy israeli chicks.
In addition, following strong pressure
applied by the Egyptian Actors' Association on the administration of
the film festival in Abu Dhabi, "The Band's Visit," which was scheduled
to be screened at the festival, will not be shown at the event in
Over the past weekend, the Egyptian Actor's Association sent a
strong warning to the organizers of the film festival in the emirate
saying that, if the Israeli film were to be shown during the festival,
the Egyptians would boycott the event.
Yeah. That's telling them! Natalie Portman, You are next!
