Dhimmi goes to Hollywood

Sony Pictures Classic has agreed to pick up a documentary movie about Dhimmi Carter's promotional tour of his book of lies: 'Palestine: Peace not Apartheid' for distribution in North America by Participant Productions.
The film, directed by Jonathan Demme, has been picked up by Sony Pictures Classic for distribution in North America by Participant Productions, the socially-conscious company that backed Al Gore's Oscar-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth. According to Variety, the documentary will premiere at the Venice International Film Festival later this month and has been titled Jimmy Carter: Man From Plains. It is also rumored to be among the films to be screened at the Toronto Film Festival next month.

In the documentary, Demme follows the ex-president as he promotes his Simon and Schuster publication, which sparked intense criticism from the Jewish world. The ADL took a particularly strong position during the debate, with director Abraham Foxman accusing Carter of "engaging in anti-Semitism."

Carter, who was generally dogged by protests on his tour, argues in the book that "Israel's continued control and colonization of Palestinian land have been the primary obstacles to a comprehensive peace agreement in the Middle East." That perspective, coupled with the use of the inflammatory term "Apartheid" in the title and the discovery of errors and misstatements in the book, kept Carter in the headlines for weeks. It also kept his book on the New York Times bestseller list.

Carter has defended his book and countered in the Los Angeles Times in December 2006 that "in the real world…[response] has been overwhelmingly positive."
I wonder if they'll show Alan Dershowitz being excluded from Dhimmi's promotion in Waltham.

If he ran again for president he'd still get the majority of Jewish votes-yuch
