CAIR-DFW is Endorsing the 11th Annual Palestine Film Festival

CAIR-DFW is thrilled to cosponsor and support the effort of the Trinity Presbyterian Church in launching its 11th Annual Palestine/Israel Film Festival in Denton, TX.
The film festival will take place on Jan 19th & 20th at 2200 N Bell Ave., Denton, TX. 76209. The first film will shed light on the atrocities and struggles the Gazans faced even before the past October escalation especilly in the medical care field while the second film will examine the generational divide within the American Jewish population through the lense of two young American jews who were raised up to unconditionally love and support Israel but changed their views after seeing the reality. Both joined the movement of young American Jews that is redifining the linkage between Judaism and Israel.

What: 11th Annual Palestine/Israel Film Festival, "Broken Lense"
When: Jan. 19th & 20th
Organizer: Trinity Presbyterian Church
Where: 2200 N Bell Ave., Denton, TX. 76209
Why: Raise awareness about Palestine/Israel issues

The Presbyterian Church (USA) denomination has a long history of involvement in the Middle East, dating back over 200 years. More recently, the PC(USA) in 2005 became the first Christian denomination in the world to call for a selective divestment process from companies profiting from injustices in Palestine/Israel, before making the front page of the New York Times when it divested in 2014 from Caterpillar, Motorola Solutions, and Hewlett-Packard.  
In 2022, the national PC(USA) denomination overwhelmingly passed a resolution, originated in North Texas, that names Israel as practicing the crime of apartheid as defined in international law.
