Inside Scarred Minds

By way of Arab Media Watch

Please take a minute to thank the Sunday Times and Daniel Day-Lewis for an excellent article in the March 20 edition entitled “Inside scarred minds”, in which the renowned actor, on his first visit to the Gaza Strip, meets Palestinian families living in conflict and the psychologists who are counselling them.

Our thanks and support are all the more important because the Zionist Federation has today urged its members to complain about the article, which it described as “very unpleasant”. We must not allow the newspaper or celebrity to be silenced, as this will discourage other high-profile figures from speaking out.

It’s a long one (4,515 words) but still pretty damn good

If possible, we will forward your messages of support to Day-Lewis’s agent.
