“Why would ‘Jesus’ look any different -physically- than his Jewish colleagues???”
I thought those playing Jews in the film looked generally the same. Very few were actually Jews either.
True. Wasn’t the gentleman portraying Saint Peter Italian? If I am not mistaken, one of the last times I watched my dvd, I watched all the special features, and I seem to remember most of purported Jews, as well as the Romans, being Italian. Either way, this screenwriter has an “axe to grind,” both with regard to his perception of anti-semitism, and Mr. Gibson and Warner Brothers. It sounds very much as if he may be unjustly making the accusation here. Also, I doubt the man in question could dispute that, like you and I, Mr. Gibson’s favorite individual is of Jewish descent: Our Lord.
It’s a shame he put his racist Nazi type “hooked nose” drawing there.
