What is it with Leftist doctrine that makes these people both communists and Jew-haters?

Sick. Jane Fonda and Danny Glover were out bashing the Jewish “propaganda machine” this past week and comparing Israel to the former apartheid government in South Africa.
The Jerusalem Post reported:
Some 50 celebrities, artists and filmmakers, including actors Jane Fonda and Danny Glover, musician David Byrne and filmmaker Ken Loach, have accused the Toronto International Film Festival of “complicity with the Israeli propaganda machine” over its spotlight this year on Tel Aviv.
The 2009 festival will present 10 films by local filmmakers on the Israeli metropolis, for its City to City program, which each year focuses its lens on a different city.
The choice led to protests that the film festival was “staging a propaganda campaign” on Israel’s behalf, given “the absence of Palestinian filmmakers in the program,” said an open letter to festival organizers, AFP reported.
The program “ignores the suffering of thousands of former residents and descendants of the Tel Aviv-Jaffa area who currently live in refugee camps in the Occupied Territories” after a “mass exiling of the Palestinian population” in 1948, according to the letter.
“Looking at modern, sophisticated Tel Aviv without also considering the city’s past and the realities of Israeli occupation of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, would be like rhapsodizing about the beauty and elegant lifestyles in white-only Cape Town or Johannesburg during apartheid without acknowledging the corresponding black townships of Khayelitsha and Soweto,” AFP reported the letter as saying.
Jane Fonda better watch it.
If she keeps talking like this she’s going to find herself working for Obama in the White House!
