The Jerusalem Post reports: An Israeli filmaker whose movie took home a prize at a prestigious Berlin film festival was recorded by Channel 10 as telling an audience in the German capital that the government in Jerusalem was “fascist.”

Udi Aloni, the director of Junction 48, told festival goers in Berlin that German Chancellor Angela Merkel was wrong to sell submarines to Israel.

Aloni, the son of the late education minister and prominent left-wing politician Shulamit Aloni, said that Israel was a country in which “a white [Jewish] man” like himself could speak freely while non-Jews were forbidden from doing so.
