Abe Foxman; Jesse Jackson in whiteface

Foxman & Ehud Olmert

According to today's Jerusalem Post, the ADL's Abe Foxman defended Steven Spielberg's `Munich'.Jerusalem Post | Breaking News from Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World

"We do not think this is an attack on Israel. We do not think this is a film of moral equivalency," Foxman told a group of journalists.

He must have seen a different movie. Maybe a rough cut made from the script before Tony Kushner got hold of it.

Now, the fact that Spielberg is a wealthy and influential Jew who cuts a nice check to the ADL every year wouldn't have anyhing to do with your feelings `bout that, would it Abe?

If Mel Gibson makes another movie and wants to get on the ADL's good side, the message is clear. Just break out the checkbook, Mel and and your films will get the stamp of approval as well!

Funny thing is, `Munich' in its way is a much more anti-semitic film than the `Passion', IMHO. But you won't see the ADL criticizing it in any way. Got to keep on the good side of those heavy donors.
