Posted on 07/01/2005 8:27:02 AM PDT by Cool Chick
A New York Times article, today, confirms everything I've written (here and here) and worse regarding Steven Spielberg's upcoming "Vengeance" movie. It is now a certainty that Mr. "Schindler's List" will expend the capital he earned on that film to now HUMANIZE(!) Palestinian terrorists who murdered the Israeli Olympic athletes in Munich in 1972.
It's bad enough that Spielberg ran the script by Arafat-fan Bill Clinton--Arafat ordered the Olympic athlete massacre--and other assorted Clintonistas who drooled over Arafat, like Mike McCurry and Dennis Ross.
Worse is the revelation that playwright Tony Kushner (a self-avowed socialist and gay activist) is praised for "humanizing the film's hunted Palestinians and giving a fuller sense of their motivation." Can you imagine if someone did a film humanizing Mohammed Atta and giving a fuller sense of his motivation?! Or perhaps he can do "Schindler's Other List," humanizing the Nazis and giving a fuller sense of their motivation. Unbelievable. We don't need more psychobabble about understanding the terrorists and why they hate us. Who cares why they hate us? A better question is: Why don't we hate them enough to quit doing crappy, Stockholm-Syndrome movies like this?
Spielberg released a statement calling the Munich Olympic massacre "a defining moment in the modern history of the Middle East," as if he's proud of that. It wasn't a "defining" moment. It was an EXTREMELY TRAGIC moment!
One hint Spielberg is playing for the wrong team: "Vengeance" is being shot in Pan-Arabist Malta, which criminally prosecuted columnist Simone Endrich for criticizing Palestinian terrorists, homicide bombings, and the Maltese Prime Minister for participating in a pro-Palestinian demonstration. So glad Spielberg picked such an even-handed locale for "Vengeance."
Other signs Steven Spielberg is glorifying the Munich Olympic terrorists: He . . .

Thanks. Me too.
You mean like Fahrenheit 9/11?
I once respected him for his monomaniacal determination to make movies. I have long since lost that respect.
Spielberg is a despicable prick if he makes this movie as described.
Works for me!
The 'proof' she gives in that article doesn't even tise to the level of innuendo. Weak Weak Weak Debbie. It's like saying that if 'The Ten Commandments' was being filmed in Egypt that must mean it will glorify the Pharoah. If this movie 'glorifies' Palestinian terrorists I'll eat my hat.
