'Jenin, Jenin' Opens In Court


Hearings begin today in the 2.5 NIS lawsuit brought by five Israeli soldiers against Israeli Arab actor and director Muhammad Bakri for producing the film "Jenin, Jenin," the Jerusalem Post reports:

Basing itself mainly on interviews with Palestinians in the refugee camp after the fighting ended, but also on film clips, Bakri portrayed Israeli troops as committing a series of war crimes. Although he described the film as a documentary, he did not interview Israeli officials or give them an opportunity to refute the allegations contained in the film.

The Post goes on to list several of the disputed allegations.

CAMERA's review of "Jenin, Jenin" details additional apparent falsehoods.
