The daughter of an Arab killed by Israeli forces presented a petition with 36,000 signatures to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences denouncing its selection of “Paradise Now” for possible Oscar honors. Earlier, Nonie Darwish, who has become a critic of what she calls the systematic indoctrination of Palestinians to hate Israelis and Jews, harshly criticized the film about two Palestinian suicide bombers for “putting a human face on the murderers of children.” “Paradise Now” recently won a Golden Globe award as best foreign-language film and is one of five nominees in the same category at Sunday’s event.
