The Jewish Chronicle - - Comment&analysis -

For the past four years, the Bar­bican Arts Cen­tre has staged a Lon­don Pales­tine Film Fes­ti­val. There have been no Is­rael-re­lated events at the Bar­bican for 18 years and there are no plans for any cel­e­bra­tion of Is­rael’s 60th an­niver­sary.

Nei­ther the Cor­po­ra­tion of Lon­don, which, ac­cord­ing to their web­site, pro­vides the Bar­bican as part of their “con­tri­bu­tion to the cul­tural life of Lon­don and the na­tion”, nor the Bar­bican man­age­ment has re­sponded to my re­quests for an ex­pla­na­tion of this dis­crim­i­na­tory pol­icy.
