Disturbing Silence of Screenwriters Guild on Hamas Attack

The Screenwriters Guild of Israel (SGI) criticized the Writers Guild of America (WGA) for not condemning terrorism and remaining silent on the recent attacks in Israel.

The SGI expressed disappointment in the lack of courage from their American counterparts and called for a clear stand against the terrorist organization responsible for the attacks.

American members of the WGA also criticized the guild for its silence and pointed out its previous vocal support for other movements.

“The Screen Writers Guild of Israel [SGI] is shocked and appalled by the lack of courage from its fellow American guilds to take a clear stand on the events of October 7,” guild chairman Nadav Ben Simon said in an open letter to the WGA.

“Your silence is loud and clear and is completely contrasted by the loud support demanded from the SGI and their members just a few weeks ago.”

“It is a shame that a professional writers’ guild cannot reach a consensus and find the words to condemn an act of terrorism, an unprovoked crime against humanity, against innocent civilians, women, children, the disabled and the elderly,”” the SGI’s letter added.

“It is a shame that a professional writers’ guild cannot find in their hearts enough courage to speak out against a terrorist organization that is currently holding 200 hostages, some of them toddlers and babies, snatched from their cribs as their mothers were raped in the same room, in front of their eyes.”

“It is a damn shame that a professional writers’ guild decides to withhold words. To keep utterly silent. To not take a stand. Well, your silence is considered a stand, picking a side. A shame,” the SGI exclaimed.

They emphasized the need to denounce the “monstrous act of barbarity” and expressed concern that the WGA’s silence implies taking a side.
