17-07-2009 13:59This film, made by award-winning journalist Max Rosenthal, shows the reactions of a group of night revellers in Jerusalem to President Obama's Middle East initiatives. Many of the interviewees are American-Jewish visitors to the city. After 400,000 views on youtube, it was pulled as "inappropriate content", and Rosenthal would like to know why. He has received death threats and been accused of being a "self-hating Jew". His response, in the Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz, was: "I am self-hating, but not because I'm Jewish."
