More on the Oscar embarrassment caused by Jonathan Glazer

Here's some more news regarding the anti-Israeli atrocities on parade at this year's Academy Awards ceremony. For example, actress Mayim Bialik condemned the attendants for not wearing yellow ribbons in support of the hostages of Hamas:
Mayim Bialik took to Instagram on Friday to share her frustration with this year’s Oscar attendees for their absence of yellow ribbons advocating for the safe return of Israeli hostages that have been kidnapped by Hamas.

“Of course I have opinions about a lot of things that went down at the Oscars both on the red carpet and on the stage but here’s what I’m going to say: I sure wish every single human being at the Oscars would have worn a yellow ribbon to show support for Hamas immediately returning the hostages who have been held since they were seized from their homes on October 7- including American citizens,” Bialik wrote in the charged post. “The ceasefire offer on the table demands the return of captive women, elderly, and the injured. It has been rejected by Hamas.”

The Big Bang Theory star, who is Jewish, was sporting a yellow ribbon in the picture, and ended her caption with the hashtag “#BringThemHome.”
And about the red pins at least a few attendants wore, those are some of the most alarming symbols of evil possible to find:
In an interview with Jake Tapper on CNN on Tuesday, Moshe Levi, brother-in-law of Gaza hostage Omri Meran, said, “We cannot normalize hostage taking, we cannot normalize terrorist action as committed by Hamas on October 7,” while commenting on the ceasefire pins celebrities wore at the Oscars. Moshe Levi’s sister and Omri Meran have two daughters.

He continued, “Yesterday we saw the Oscars, we saw people wearing a pin that, for us Israelis, reminds us of the lynch in Ramallah in the Second Intifada. At the same time, I want them to wear this. If you support a ceasefire, you need to support the return of the hostages. If you support the humanitarian cause of the Palestinians, you need to support the humanitarian cause of the hostages…My call to the American public: Unite behind us.

If you unite behind the families of the hostages, I can promise you that we can start seeing an end to this. Narrow the focus, focus on the hostages and negotiating solely on that
. After that we have so many decades to finish this conflict and finally live in coexistence with our neighbors. But we will not be able to live with them in coexistence as long as hostages are still there and as long as radical elements like Hamas who are emboldened by people like those who were wearing those pins yesterday, are still in power in Gaza.”
The evil pins are explained here too:
But that symbol derives from an actual photo of a bloody hand:

Back in 2000, two Jewish IDF reservists mistakenly drove through Ramallah and were detained by Palestinian police — and then brutally murdered in their jail cell by a crowd of savage, blood-hungry thugs, one of whom showed his bloodied hand in a now-infamous photo.

That is, like so much of American “advocacy” for Palestinians, the pins are a wink-wink, nudge-nudge endorsement of violent terror against Jews.

It’s no coincidence that these stars are hard leftoids: Institutional antisemitism is now part of the American left’s core DNA.
What anybody who wore those repulsive pins did was depicable, and just compounds how insufferable Hollywood's become of recent. Sarah Tuttle-Singer discusses the issue too.

Thankfully, a whole community of over a thousand Jews signed a letter rejecting Glazer's offensive conduct:
More than 1,200 Jewish Hollywood creatives have now signed onto a statement rejecting the speech criticizing Israel by “The Zone of Interest” director Jonathan Glazer at this month’s Academy Awards.

The signatories include “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” writer Amy Sherman-Palladino, horror director Eli Roth and actress Jennifer Jason Leigh, as well as several show business figures — Debra Messing, Brett Gelman, Michael Rappaport and others — who have been prominent defenders of Israel during its war against Hamas. [...]

Now, a statement organized by United Jewish Writers, a coalition that formed shortly after Hamas’s October 7 attack on Israel as the Hollywood unions were divided over whether and how to issue statements condemning the attack and supporting Israel, aims to demonstrate the scope of dissent within Hollywood.

“We refute our Jewishness being hijacked for the purpose of drawing a moral equivalence between a Nazi regime that sought to exterminate a race of people, and an Israeli nation that seeks to avert its own extermination,” the statement says.
It's fortunate more people are speaking out, though Glazer so far hasn't responded. And who knows, maybe he never will. The man is clearly not suited to be part of the Israeli community, and he'd do well to just stop claiming he's "one of us" already. His film's reputation is likely to suffer now, for all we know, as some will be reluctant to see it.

And how come the Holocaust continues to be a topic of interest for films, but not modern day Islamic terrorism? The cowardice seen these days is staggering. It's practically what led to September 11, 2001 and the murder of nearly 3000 people.
