Steven Spielberg

An April 2007 cable detailing a meeting of the Damascus-based Arab League Boycott Office says that the league targeted Spielberg, "who was singled out for his USD one million donation to Israel last year during the summer conflict in Lebanon, according to [Muhammed al Ajami, head of the Syrian Regional Office for the Boycott of Israel]. The committee banned all films and other products related to Spielberg or his Righteous Persons Foundation, Ajami said. Generic enforcement guidelines given to ALBO members include the banning of DVD imports and airing of Spielberg,s films."
