I am Jewish, and yet I am still alive after "The Passion" has been out for a week. Seems like my "leaders" have lied to me.

I saw it today, and managed to survive as well. I guess I missed the message from Abe Foxman on how I am supposed to think.

What you mean we missed you? Dang. When are these continuous predictions of anti-Semitic rampages going to appear?

I was moved to violence after the film. The Romans were so cruel to Jesus that I walked around the mall for hours after the movie looking for some Romanian butt to kick begore I calmed down.

My friend, these are hysterical idiots. As a matter of fact, I heard a rabbi from Seattle saying that all these liberal Jews from Hollywood are not even religious they are mostly godless. They are Jews by name only, as a club of “us against them”. This paranoia is causing them to offend the same people that loves and supports them. That is sooo stupid if you ask me.

Aren't all the heroes and heroines in this story, save one, Jewish? This is the point that those expressing these fears seem to ignore. And that ALL of Jesus' followers, at this point, were Jewish.

That is similiar to blaming ALL Americans for fighting to keep Slavery when, in fact, hundreds of thousands gave their lives explicitly fighting to end it. Others, of course, fought for different reasons and the War was not cast in that light but many of the Union soldiers fought to end slavery.

I am sorry to see Krauthammer write in this fashion and only tell half the story, I thought he was more honest and intelligent to try and peddle this Leftist line. He also ignores the cultural and financial position of the Jews in Europe when they were massacred under the pretense that they were responsible for Christ's death.

Often, their killers were just thugs- ignorant, indifferent or actually opposed to any true Christian ideals. Certainly, unlike the Koran, there are no exhortations within the Bible to kill and loot from those not within the Christian religion.

Oh well, heck, let me come over there now and get you. I'm sorry my other Christians are so lazy. Geez, we are slipping.

LOL.

I'm planning to see the movie on Saturday. I just hope I can resist that innate urge to organize a pogrom.

Guys like Krauthammer just don't get it. As a Christian, most of my heroes are Jews.

And for him to attempt to tie the Holocaust to Christians is simply despicable. The Nazis were not Christians--they were neo-pagans who persecuted true Christians.

I hadn't thought of that. What is going to be the response when the predicted wave of anti-semitism never happens?

Times have changed a LOT. In this country, stereotyping of any kind has taken a pretty huge beating. If you're ignorant enough to blame today's Jews for what certain jewish religious leaders did 2000 years ago, I don't think a movie is going to make a lick of difference. Heck, there are people who don't even know that Jesus was of jewish ethnicity, and at least the movie will educate those folks.

I honestly think that if there is any antisemitism that comes out of this, it will be as a result of a backlash rather than due to the movie itself. That's really, really unfortunate, because antisemitism, for whatever reason, is a terrible thing.
