Nearly two years after it was labeled anti-Semitic (before it even came out), The Passion of the Christ might actually be converting Jews to Jesus. Take rapper 50 Shekel, who found notoriety with In Da Shul, a moderately clever parody of a 50 Cent hip-hop track (the Washington Post featured Shekel in a piece about being Young, Jewish and . . . Cool). He recently announced that he has found Jesusinspired by the movie, which he calls the most Jewish film ever made. They were calling Jesus Yeshua . . . After seeing Mary sing Ma nish-ta nah, I was like, Oh, so this is the Messiah. It all makes sense now. Shekel, whose real name is Aviad Cohen, even renamed his album, from Get Righteous or Die Trying to For His Glory. Cohens Website now proselytizes for Jesus. Susan Perlman, associate executive director of Jews for Jesus, says Cohens not the only one to find Jesus via Mel Gibsons film, which she considers a powerful tool to bring Jews to her faith. Now that the movie is on DVD, more Jews are watching. I think a lot were afraid to go to the theater to see it. Gibsons publicist, Alan Nierob, had no comment on the DVD as conversion tool.
Mr. Foxman - call your office!
Well, whatever... It is probably one of the few movies to do much better that the Hoolywood Moguls predicted, though. Congratulations to them!
?Is Mel Gibson?s ?Passion? a Tool to Convert Muslims?,......
.......Pope has already 'kissed' the Koran?
They knew it was not offensive to Jews.
It was the possibility of Jewish conversions that they were afraid of.
