Bomb Victims’ Parents Petition Academy Awards to Reject Movie

From Bomb Victims’ Parents Petition Academy Awards to Reject Movie:

The parents of three Israeli children killed in a suicide bombing have sent a petition with 32,000 names to Hollywood to demand that the Palestinian film “Paradise Now,” about two suicide bombers planning an attack, be dropped from the Oscars this weekend on the grounds that it promotes terrorism.

“Paradise Now is artistic terror,” said Yossi Mendellevich, whose son, Yuvi, 13, died in the bombing of a Haifa bus three years ago that killed 17 Israelis including nine children. “The film contributes to the death industry and the myth of the suicide bombers. By promoting and praising the film as an Oscar nominee, I’m sure the queue to become suicide killers will be much longer.”
