Dear Mr. Glover,
Thank you for breaking your own boycott against Israel. By becoming a paid spokesman for Avanir Pharmaceuticals and their only FDA-approved drug that had clinical trials in Israel, you are raising awareness about Israel’s global humanitarian efforts.
As supporters of Israel, we were perplexed by what appeared to be your hypocritical stance. It didn’t make sense. First you boycotted the Toronto Film Festival because one Israeli film was entered and then you pushed for others to boycott Israel’s DocAviv festival. However, you completely ignored tremendous human rights violations while visiting:
- United Arab Emirates to be a judge at the Dubai Film Festival
- Communist Cuba (before sanctions were lifted)
- Venezuela and your “special friend,” Hugo Chávez
- Tanzania and Zanzibar to participate in the Zanzibar International Film Festival
With this backdrop of you ignoring so many human rights violations in other countries, we didn’t understand why you only singled out Israel to boycott, the one true democracy in the Middle East.
Whether you broke your self-imposed boycott of Israel because you didn’t realize that you were selling a drug that had clinical trials in Israel, or maybe the money was just too tempting to turn down, we are happy that you did.
We look forward to you promoting many more Israeli products that are helping to better the world.
On behalf of Israel, we thank you.
[By signing the petition, your name will be attached to the letter given to Mr. Glover]
