Gibson's Passion Exonerated
While surfing the web tonight I ran across a post about the disturbing increase in anti-Semitic incidents by Damian Penny at Daimnation. I was particularly interested to read this comment from B'nai Brith Director Ruth Klein.
Almost one-third of all incidents occurred in March and April , when Israel launched countermeasures against terrorist groups in the Palestinian territory. Klein said that seemed to fall in line with a historical pattern surrounding Israeli military activity.This is a far more likely explanation for the increase in Anti-Semitic activity than the opening of Mel Gibson's, The Passion of the Christ. Perhaps Frank Dimant, B'nai Brith's Chief Executive Officer, should now apologize to Mel Gibson and the rest of us for his unwise and inaccurate comments, while he still retains some credibility.
