Iran Defeats Israel.. In One Realm

Iran Defeats Israel

That is a headline we were hoping to never have to see again, after Cyrus the Persian conquered Babylon and Judea in 539 BC. Yet last night at the 2012 Academy Awards Iran defeated Israel.

An Iranian film and an Israeli film were front-runners for the award in the Foreign Language Films category. Ian's film "Separation" beat out Israel's film "Footnote" for the Oscar trophy.

Winning in the entertainment industry is far better than winning in the ongoing hostility and conflict surrounding the Iranians attempt to build nuclear weapons and destroy Israel (and the West). As a matter of fact, I am a bit surprised the Iranian film was allowed to compete, considering the sanctions placed on Iran.

  1. the oscars were just a diversion so that we and the kurds could destroy their nuclear facilities.

    Surprised? Why?
    Hollywood probably likes nothing better than to embrace countries that are culturally/politically/everything-but-militarily at war with the U.S.

    Of course, they’d say--not without some justification---that 'art & culture should transcend political squabbles'---Great; it’s just that this never seems to apply to the countless examples of boycotting Israelis orchestras, companies, even leftist academics.
