The Arts Review

1. The BC government has reversed its dreadful decision to withhold monies already promised to arts groups. It will now fund the over 500 large and small organizations it already said it would. That's real nice of them to stick to their promises.

2. The Toronto International Film Festival runs something called a City to City program. This year they chose to focus - How dare they? Who do they think they are? - on Tel Aviv.

That would be your Tel Aviv by the sea in that "apartheid regime" known and hated around the world as Israel.

Among the many vocal protesters to this monstrosity are Naomi Klein, Jane Fonda, and Danny Glover.

These deep thinkers allege, in spite of all evidence to the contrary, that this is part of a Bran Israel propaganda machinery.

The ugly truth is that the protests are part of a Palestinian-led Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.
