Bennett: No Tears for Israeli Oscars Loss

MK Naftali Bennett, head of the Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) party, responded Monday to the news that two Israeli films failed to win an Oscar. “The anti-Israeli Israeli film ‘Five Broken Cameras’ didn’t win an Oscar. I didn’t shed a tear,” he wrote on his Facebook page.

The Israeli and Israeli-PA films nominated for best documentary were seen by many within Israel as anti-Israel.
