New monster created

The following letter appears in this week's Australian Jewish News (February 2)

PAINFUL HERO

"Pardon me thou bleeding piece of earth, that I am so meek and gentle with these butchers."

"The above was written by William Shakespeare in Julius Caesar over 300 years ago in an apology for an event that occurred over 2000 years ago. Jews were not the issue even though the author was a reported anti-Semite.

"In these modern times 'thou bleeding piece of earth' can be transposed to mean Holocaust victims and the Jews murdered by modern-day Jew haters.

"The list of Jews who should be quoting the first two sentences of this letter grows daily.

"At the top of that list is the 'sweet' little man with a New York Yiddish accent whose vehicle the Producers has made him a multi-millionaire ghoul, who has stepped on the bones of six million of his brethren. His validation is 'make fun of the murderers and you really sock it to them'. Mel Brooks, give me a break!

"Added to this list are men such as Noam Chomsky and Norman Finkelstein, but the most painful of all this to me is a man who was my hero. Steven Spielberg has become an apologist for killers of Jews (Munich)."

Moishe Grosberg
St Kilda East, Vic

Perhaps Grosberg would prefer if Jews who didn't blindly accept his paranoid view of the world be permanently silenced? After all, he clearly believes that Jews have any number of internal and external enemies that threaten the long-term survival of Israel and Jews.

Add another member to the not-so-exclusive "Jews are the only, and most convincing, victim's club."

Try looking at the web site of Benador Associates where they describe the scribe Amir Taheri as one of its “ highly qualified cadre of inspiring, knowledgeable speakers who are available to address your group or broadcast audience”. How come these guys get free air play in the nmedia when they are not independant journos but hired guns for the neo-cons

What on Earth did family bockbuster cranker-out Speilberg do to be anyone's "hero"? At least a certain dalek familiar to these parts, who calls himself Ibrahim, had the pomposity to invoke Einstein (in proving that the Palestinians are exactly the same as the Third Reich. Especially now that they've taken Moscow).

Has Moishe Grosberg even seen Spielberg's 'Munich'? He can't have if he thinks it turns "Spielberg..[into] an apologist for killers of Jews".

It's not exactly a "Yay Palestinian terrorists, Boo Israeli assassins" message. At 'worst' it presents us with a fairly understated, simple question: maybe the Revenge Strategy is not such a good idea, psychologically, politically and morally. (It is precisely because the message is little more than a deeply worried question, and not the obvious and unequivocal answer, it has been criticised by some in the Arab community.)

Such Grosberg-style hyperbole only makes supporters of Israel look like their disconnected from reality altogether - which undermines their legitimacy even when they are saying sensible things.
