It seem to me that the following information should be more of an issue regarding Mel. But the propaganda situation of the matter compares more to that of women's fondness for Pierre Trudeau in Canada: no logic allowed.
Gibson inspired by 'fear-mongering' Bush (Flashback: Gibson Part of Hollywood Bush Hate Contingent)

Film star and director Mel Gibson has launched a scathing attack on US President George W Bush, comparing his leadership to the barbaric rulers of the Mayan civilisation in his new film Apocalypto.
The epic, due for release later this year, captures the decline of the Maya kingdom and the slaughter of thousands of inhabitants as human sacrifices in a bid to save the nation from collapsing.
Gibson reveals he used present day American politics as an inspiration, claiming the government callously plays on the nation's insecurities to maintain power.
He tells British film magazine Hotdog, "The fear-mongering we depict in the film reminds me of President Bush and his guys".

"Gibson, who insists ideology matters less to him than stories of 'penitential hardship' like his Oscar-winning Braveheart, puts it more bluntly: 'The fearmongering we depict in this film reminds me a little of President Bush and his guys.'"

My tagline applies to the issue, BTW. Don't forget to see comment #1.

No doubt Mel has issues ... but you know what? This story is getting old, fast. Of all the things going on ... there are more IMPORTANT events occurring out there.

Hillary hates Jews too. Can we spend a little time on that?

Anti-Semitism is a hallmark of the far-left, not the far-right. The Right supports Israel and is pro-Jewish.

From all the hype about Mel's "rant", I thought the title of Mel's next, latest, soon-to-be-finished movie was something like:
"Schindler's List #2: Let's Get This Party Started !!"
(....sarcasm off thingee goes in this spot.....)

It seems to me that since Mel Gibson's second apology, the people that are doing the most complaining about him being antisemitic aren't Jews.
Since he doesn't hold an office as an elected official, we can't keep this nagging of the subject up indefinitely.
Unless someone can come up with pictures of him, Senator Byrd and David Duke all together dancing around a burning cross (did someone say Photoshop challenge) let it go.
