Mel Gibson said the script with Joe Eszterhas of “Basic Instinct” and “Showgirls” fame worked to tell the story of Judah Maccabee warrior Jewish history, has paved the way for the first celebration of Hanukkah.
Wait for what?
Is it the same Mel Gibson’s drunken anti-Semitic speeches and California after a 2006 arrest in Malibu? Mel Gibson told the band as well “,” F ***** g Jews … The Jews are responsible for all the wars of the sheriff in the world “for the County of Los Angeles?
Why, yes it is!
After Deadline.com, Gibson “had long wanted to make a” movie, saying that the actor and director who is under siege “determined” to return to the movies.
Although it reflects the work with Eszterhas is a film about the Jewish heroes of Gibson’s sincere desire to make a historical drama, some Jewish community are very unhappy.
“Mel Gibson has shown nothing but hostility and respect for the Jews,” Rabbi Marvin Heir, said in a statement to the Hollywood Reporter. “It was a long history of antagonism with the Jews. ‘Is her casting as a director or perhaps a star as a casting director from Judas Maccabaeus Madoff Securities and Exchange Commission, or white supremacy as an attempt to Martin Luther King, Jr. He simply insulting the Jews must be disclosed. ”
Heir, founder of the Simon Wiesenthal Center Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles, also has a warning for film distributors.
“Warner Bros. made a terrible mistake,” he said. “Most people, to be a film about Judah Maccabee, the Jewish community. Surely they know of the Jewish community does not come in the film.”
Director of the Anti-Defamation League, Abraham Foxman agreed.
“Judah Maccabee deserve better,” said Foxman. “He was a hero of the Jewish people and universal hero in the struggle for religious freedom. It would be a travesty to have his story told by people who have no respect for sensitivity towards religious beliefs of others. “
