Support "Paradise Now"
There is a war of petitions going on about "Paradise Now." Some want its nomination for an Oscar revoked. Others want the film entered under "Palestinian Authority" not "Palestine" because, according to them, "Palestine" does not exist (apparently the Palestinians have not graduated to arguing for their "right" to exist; they still have to struggle to prove they "actually" exist and are not some ghostly apparitions floating in the Middle East). I don't think the pro-film petition describes the film well, but the intention of supporting "Paradise Now" is a good one.
