The global premiere of Hating Israel: In Search of The Truth Behind BDS was screened on Wednesday evening at the Jerusalem Cinematheque in the presence of a select group of parliamentarians, clergy, business leaders, and VIPs. The full-length documentary takes viewers on a personal journey through Israel in search of the truth behind the global movement to defame and destroy Israel. The film is the latest initiative of Proclaiming Justice to The Nations (PJTN) as part of their ongoing global educational and mobilization campaign against the BDS movement. The film will be distributed through PJTN’s media partners on several television networks, reaching a combined audience of over 950,000,000 viewers in 200 nations worldwide.
The documentary offers a news-driven, satirical approach to focus on the global impact of the “BDS Movement”- a movement to boycott, divest, and sanction against the State of Israel. Through the lens of Emmy Award winning director, Stan Moore, host Brad Stine leads viewers through a twisted landscape of
false perceptions to fully explain the anti- Semitic roots of BDS.Through commentary, interviews, and visuals from headline news from around the world, the documentary exposes the frightening rise of a new anti-Semitism being promoted through the BDS Movement.
Viewers joined American Comedian Brad Stine on a journey in search of truth that takes him across Israel and the United States of America. He met with Ethiopian Jews in Jerusalem, and Muslim Israelis in Haifa. Brad encountered Israeli colleges and high-tech companies to hear about the latest breakthroughs in Israeli innovation. Mr. Stine traveled into the West Bank to hear personal stories from local Palestinians to learn firsthand how, if successful, the BDS movement would actively destroy the livelihoods of thousands of Palestinian families.
In America, Stine met with an array of experts including former CIA director James R. Woolsey, Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz, Jewish comedian Jackie Mason, exiled Palestinian Christians and Jewish students under attack on university campuses He learned about the increasingly violent protests and intimidation tactics used against pro- Israel students. Laurie Cardoza-Moore, president and founder of PJTN noted: “Not only have we been relentless in exposing the BDS movement and its leaders as anti-Semitic, but it is inherently antithetical and deeply damaging to the cause of peace, justice, equality, democracy, and human rights for the people of Israel. The movement also threatens Palestinian jobs”. She continued: “This docu-tainment film is PJTN’s next step to expose the lies of the boycott Israel movement”.
Hating Israel: In Search of The Truth Behind BDS will have= its global release in the fall. The film will have a limited theatrical release in the U.S. and Europe and will air in over 200 nations, reaching over 950 million viewers globally. The film will also be screened on college and university campuses, before civic groups,as well as churches and synagogues around the globe.
Proclaiming Justice to the Nations (PJTN), a 501c3 non-profit organization, was established to educate Christians about their Biblical responsibility to stand with their Jewish brethren and Israel, utilizing powerful film and video presentations, a variety of grassroots rallies, events and speaking engagements to facilitate dialogue between the Christian and Jewish communities in support of the State of Israel and against global genocidal anti-Semitism. In recent months the organization has led the struggle against BDS in America with a wave of state resolutions and the upcoming release of a new documentary film that will expose the truth behind the BDS movement.
