Israel, Ready to Respond

t5i4h of gtets

Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. It
includes interviews with leading
members of Israel's peace camp —
such as former Prime Minister Ehud
Barak and his foreign minister,
Shlomo Ben-Ami — as well as left-
wing intellectuals in Israel and
France.
From the moment of its release
Jan. 22, Decryptage has gotten much
publicity in the French media —
though many publications accused it
of presenting only one point of view.
Typical were the comments of Ange-
Dominique Bouzet in the center-left
daily Liberation, which itself comes in
for criticism in the film. Bouzet
described Deoyptage as a "propaganda
documentary" that is part of "a mili-
tant attempt at disinformation."
However, Philippe Cohen of
Marianne noted that Deciyptage was
very much "a symptom of the fracture
between those who guard Palestine in
their hearts and those who live Israel
in their guts."
Later, even Liberation ran a two-
page spread on Deolotage, describing
it as a "docu-mirror of French Jews."
"Decryptage has mobilized the com-
munity," the paper said.
Interestingly, Marianne also won-
dered whether campaigns for more
balanced media coverage of the
Israeli-Palestinian conflict were start-
ing to have an effect.
Criticizing the tendency of the
French media to see things in black-
and-white terms, Marianne's publish-
er, Jean-Francois Kahn, wrote that the
media was "generally pro-Palestinian,
in the same way it was or is pro-
Biafran, pro-Bangladeshi, pro-Bosnian
or pro-Chechen."
Nevertheless, there was an increasing
attempt within the media to adopt a
more balanced approach to matters
both Jewish and Israeli, "and we can
only rejoice about that," he said.
Even among Jews lining up at the
Arlequin, there was agreement on that
score.
"You know, I watch TV here and I
see the news, but I have children in
Israel so I see both sides," Suzy
Soussan told JTA.
"But it's getting better here and
there's a lot less negative reporting
because, finally, the community is
doing something about it."
Decryptage ends with the famous
quote from Hillel: "If I am not for
myself, who will be for me?"
With the seats at the Arlequin still
filled to capacity, French Jews appear
to have taken the message very much
to heart.
