#BDS: Thank you Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for slam dunking apartheid #Israel!

"Weeks before Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's scheduled visit to Israel, the Jerusalem Film Festival foreign office confirmed that the legendary basketball star and actor had canceled his planned July 2011 trip, due to concerns arising “after the Nakba Day violence” (referring to May 15, 2011). Abdul-Jabbar's visit was coordinated with the Israeli Foreign Ministry and the Israeli Consulate of New York and he was slated to present his film, “On the Shoulder’s Of Giants,” at the Jerusalem Film Festival."
