Australians are not as susceptible to blackmail as British film director Ken Loach would like and thankfully, we won't miss the film he withdrew from the Melbourne Film Festival which will be screening some quality Israeli movies.

Loach is a serial offender having cowed organisers of the Edinburgh Film Festival into returning money to the Israeli embassy after he asked it to reconsider Israel’s sponsorship.

If Loach want to really help the Palestinians and bring about a peaceful outcome to this seemingly endless conflict, he would use his voice to persuade his Palestinian friends to end their campaign of hatred and violence against Israel's civilains and Jews in general.
