    "The defence minister spoke with Norway's foreign affairs minister to express his discontent following the decision by the Norwegian fund over Elbit," a ministry statement said.

    Norway announced the decision on Thursday, saying it does not want to contribute to violations of international humanitarian law. Israeli group Elbit was accused of providing a surveillance system for the separation wall in the West Bank, which the International Court of Justice ruled illegal in 2004.

    Israeli newspapers this summer are filled with angry articles about the push for an international boycott of Israel. Films have been withdrawn from Israeli film festivals, Leonard Cohen is under fire around the world for his decision to perform in Tel Aviv, and Oxfam has severed ties with a celebrity spokesperson, a British actress who also endorses cosmetics produced in the occupied territories.

    Jacir said the Toronto festival is being used by the Israeli government as part of its "Brand Israel" campaign "to ignore and erase the reality of Israel's brutal military occupation and gross human rights violations." Palestinian filmmakers to have joined the artist protest include Hany Abu-Assad, Yousry Nasrallah and Elia Sulieman.

    And the Toronto Palestine Film Festival, which kicks off on Sept. 26, issued a statement of support for the TIFF protest, and pointed to incessant barriers placed by Israeli authorities in the way of Palestinians making films.
