Mel Gibson: Hate Mongerer?

No, I don't think he is, nor did I right after I saw the Passion, but apparently somebody did, as it is a 'hit' among Arabs:
CAIRO, Egypt - Hanan Nsour, a veiled, 21-year-old Muslim in Jordan, came out of "The Passion of the Christ" in tears and pronounced her verdict: Mel Gibson (news)'s crucifixion epic "unmasked the Jews' lies and I hope that everybody, everywhere, turns against the Jews."


I do not think that "The Passion of the Christ" portrays all Jewish people badly. That would be like saying "Schindler's List" portrays all Germans as nazis, it's simply not true. Only the Jewish High Priests were the people who killed Jesus. The movie only paints a bad light on those individuals. I think this person didn't realize that Simon, a jew, helped Jesus with his cross and stood up for him. Well, according to Mel Gibson, and he's just one man with an opinion.

That's all this movie is, folks. It's just the opinion of ONE MAN. Don't reach for things that do not exist.

  1. Oh my god, THANK YOU for posting that! And can we also not forget, that aside from being the opinion of just one man, it's also just a movie? Some people will reach for anything... What a day, when a movie by Mel Gibson has the potential to start a war...
