'Palestinian' filmmaker held by immigration at LAX

A 'Palestinian' filmmaker arriving in Los Angeles to attend the Oscar Awards ceremony was held by United States immigration officials at Los Angeles' Tom Bradley International Airport for about an hour and a half on Tuesday night. Here are some tweets from Leftist Hollywood icon Michael Moore.

Yeah, that must be it.

You mean the ICE officials didn't know who Moore was? I'm shocked....

Of course. He's just what America needs....

JPost adds:
Oscar-winning American documentary filmmaker Michael Moore has taken to Twitter to express his dissatisfaction with immigration officials at LAX airport in Los Angeles, after they allegedly threatened to send fellow filmmaker Emad Burnat, "back to Palestine."

Burnat had been visiting LA to attend the 85th Annual Academy Awards. He had been nominated in the category of Best Documentary for his film "5 Broken Cameras." 

"5 Broken Cameras" documents the first years of life for Burnat's baby against the backdrop of the West Bank village of Bil'in's battle against the Israeli security fence. Five of Burnat's cameras were smashed by the Israeli army as he documented friends and family members being shot and injured by Israeli troops. The film won the documentary director's award this year at the Sundance Film Festival.

According to Moore, once Burnat presented the authorities with his invitation to the 85th Annual Academy Awards, he was told that his official Oscars invitation wasn't "proper". Moore then tweeted the entire incident as relayed to him by Burnat.
5 Broken Cameras is one of two anti-Israel films nominated in the 'documentary' category. I hope neither of them win.
