What’s Omar Doing in Bethlehem?

February 27, 2014

Film critic Anthony Lane writes this week (but I added the italics),

“The Israeli submission for Best Foreign Language Film, ahead of this this year’s Academy Awards, was ‘Bethlehem,’ a thriller about a young Palestinian man, with links to terrorist activities, who is secretly controlled by an Israeli handler.

“The Palestinian offering was ‘Omar,’ a thriller about a young Palestinian man, with links to terrorist activities, who is secretly controlled by an Israeli handler.”

He concludes (but I added the bold highlight),

“Who said the two sides in the conflict had no common ground?  If you can share a plot with your neighbor, who know what might yet bloom?”

Well said.  Very well said.

It was own John Wesley who said, “Let us shake hands on what we can agree on, and then work together for The Kingdom,” right?
