F> can hardly be described as "Cultural" products.So even without an
F> organized boycott I'll avoid Israeli films,they remind me of
F> mainstream Turkish movies- just try sitting through one of THOSE!!!
F> (To be avoided at all cost too). Israel seems to be a very arid in
F> terms of cultural production anyway. Maybe there are other areas
F> other than film that are thriving...
