Over at France 24 I explored a new vid entitled ISraelis For Obama.
The clip was created by music-video director Alma Har’el and Hollywood producer Boaz Yakin. It’s geared towards Jewish Americans and aims to counteract the “covert Muslim” hearsay and rumours about Obama’s programme for the Middle East. The film presents both prominent and ordinary Israelis who explain why Obama would make a good president for Israel. The film also pokes fun at those troubled by Obama’s middle name, “Hussein”, pointing out that not only is Obama not a Muslim, but that “some of his best friends and advisors are Jewish”.
