Anti-Israel activists MIFFed

Israel's minor role as a cultural partner of the Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF) is again generating controversy, with activists demanding, as they did in 2009, that MIFF sever all links with Israel. These demands are rather curious considering that even left-wingers do not claim MIFF exhibits pro-Israel bias:

A close examination of the last 10 MIFF programs suggests that Israeli funding does not seem to have affected the contents of the program with quite a few films critical of Israel being shown over the years.

Rather it's the taint of money provided by Israel that riles leftist loonies.
