Lying for the Greater Good

bakri lie.jpe

Jenin, Jenin filmmaker Mohammed Bakri boasts to Ha'aretz that he lies, but don't worry -- it's for a good cause.

The fawning Ha'aretz article quotes him:

"I lie, they say. Yes, maybe there is an instance in which I lie - when it is a matter of human lives, I lie. If my lie saves people, then I am proud to lie. I lie when I create hope out of nowhere. But those who cause me to lie are not the ones who were standing here outside and screaming like wild beasts. You are the ones who cause me to lie, you are the ones who help me create a new world."
