The film’s title, “Defamation,” is an inversion of its usual meaning and refers to supposed Jewish defamation of those who criticize Israel. But the real defamation is what Shamir does to Jews by twisting their remembrance of the Holocaust and their determination to prevent any recurrence into something abnormal and evil.

No wonder the film has been enthusiastically endorsed on various neo-Nazi websites.
