Tehran’s 2-day Third International Hollywoodism Conference concluded on February 6, 2013. The event has been held since 2011 on the sideline of Iran’s annual Fajr Film Festival. It was attended by more than 50 authors, scholars, political figures and film-makers from around the world to expose Hollywood’s part in “Zionist War on Islam”. Jewish Hollywood columnist, Joel Stein, had claimed in Las Angeles Times on December 19, 2008 that Jews own Hollywood. He also claimed that even ADL chief Abraham Foxman agreed with him on that claim.
The conference was attended by Americans like former Senator Mike Gravel, filmmaker-politician Art Olivier, 9/11 eyewitness William Rodriguez, filmmaker-politician Art Olivier, professor Jim Fetzer, former presidential candidate Merlin Miller, editor Mark Edward Weber, author Dr. E. Michael Jones and academic-radio talkshow host Kevin Barrett PhD. From France came comedian Dieudonne M’Bala M’Bala and political analyst-author Thierry Meyssan and from Italy Roberto Quaglia.
Malcolm Shabazz, an Afro-American Muslim activist and grandson of world-renowned Muslim scholar and American human rights leader, could not attend the conference. He was detained by FBI agents before boarding a plane to Iran. Who could be behind his detention, your guess is as good as mine!
On February 5, America’s powerful Israeli advocacy group, ADL, issued a statement condemning the conference and calling its particpants – “conspiracy theorists, Israel and Jew haters”.
“Not surprisingly, Iran is once again at the forefront of promoting classical antisemitic conspiracy theories about Jews and Israel while giving legitimacy to a rouge’s gallery of conspirational antisemitics and anti-Zionists,” said Abraham Foxman, head of ADL (according to 2012 survey published by Jewish daily Forward (december 10, 2012) is America’s second highiest paid Israeli lobbist. He receieved $688,280 excluding benefits in 2011).
Abbe Foxman, particularly blasted French comedian Dieudonne M’Bala M’Bala for attending the conference. In May 2012, under pressure from Canadian Jewish groups, M’Bala’s four performances were cancelled in French-speaking city of Montreal.
Jewish columnist Anthony Kaufman admitted grudgingly on February 6, 2013 that Hollywood do propagates hatred toward Islam, Muslims and Iran – but its negative views have nothing to do with Jews, Israel or Zionism. “Hollywood is dangerously imperialist, capitalist, and xenophobic. But why they have to conflate those views with some worldwide Zionist conspiracy?,” wrote Kaufman.
Franklin Lamb PhD, commenting on the conference, wrote how Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden have openly admitted that sanctions against the Islamic Republic are politically motivated (for Israel) and constitute a “soft war” against the nearly 80 million people in Iran (23 million people in Syria) in order to achieve regime change.
Dr. E. Michael Jones, is editor of monthly Culture Wars magazine, author of 11 books and a renowned Catholic scholar. His latest book is ‘The Jewish Revolutionary Spirit: And its Impact on World History’. Jones earned the ‘Antisemitism Award’ long time ago. At the conference, Dr. Jones argued that the “Jewish revolutionary spirit” is the source of Hollywood’s attacks on traditional values, including the religious values of Islam.
Kevin Barrett PhD, posted his experience at the Hollywoodism conference at Truth Jihad New on February 10, 2013, which can be read here.
“Many participants observed that this conference could not have been held in any Western country, where it would have been harassed by the authorities, boycotted by the media, and (possibly) bombed by the officially-tolerated terrorist group the Jewish Defense League. Many though not all participants are holocaust revisionists, making them unemployable in the US and subject to arrest when they travel to many European countries,” wrote Dr. Barrett.
Ben Affleck’s latest Hollywood movie ‘Argo’ – is not only anti-Iran propaganda but also based on lies about the 52 American staffers taken hostage by Iranian students for being involved in espionage work against Iranian people in 1980. Canadian author, Professor Robert Wright (Trent University) in his book ‘Our Man in Tehran’ reported that it was Canada’s ambassador Kenneth Taylor, who was also CIA Station Chief in Iran – helped six American captives to escape.
