Germany gives adult rating to anti-Semitic Turkish film

German authorities have barred those under 18 from seeing a Turkish film widely considered anti-Semitic.
Jewish groups continue to raise concerns about the release in Europe of  "Valley of the Wolves-Palestine," which critics say demonizes Israelis and contains virulent anti-Semitic stereotypes of Jews as bloodthirsty killers of children.
Deidre Berger, head of the American Jewish Committee office in Berlin, said she welcomed the decision by the German ratings agency, FSK, to restrict access to the film. Berger called it “an important step in limiting the spread of this film, which glorifies violence and incites anti-Israeli sentiments.”
