A controversial film about Israel’s April 2002 military operation in the West Bank city of Jenin was one of 12 films screened at a pro-Palestinian film festival in Canada. “Jenin, Jenin” was shown at last week’s festival in Winnipeg sponsored by the Canada-Palestine Support Network. Some of the films were shown on Yom Kippur, reducing the possibility that Jews would show up to ask questions, said David Matas, senior legal counsel for B’nai Brith Canada, who called the films “pure propaganda.”
