BHLevy, Woody Allen & Salman Rushdie stand up for 'Arab rights'!

Palestine? Anyone?
UNITED NATIONS — Oscar-winning film director Woody Allen on Thursday joined two Nobel prize winners in a petition demanding that the UN Security Council condemn the Syrian government crackdown on opposition protests, organizers said Thursday.
Allen, Nobel literature prize winners Wole Soyinka of Nigeria and Orhan Pamuk of Turkey and leading writers such as Salman Rushdie, Umberto Eco and Bernard-Henri Levy are all calling for a UN resolution.An open letter on Syria was started by Levy on his Regle du Jeu (Rules of the Game) web site. The letter says demonstrators in Syria have "faced a death machine aware of the heavy price they would pay." The signatories say it would be "tragic and morally unacceptable" for the Security Council to do nothing.

I think Woody must be getting material for a new movie. But who would play BHL? Ohhhhh. Of course! BHL.
