Me in South Africa’s MAIL & GUARDIAN

By Debbie Schlussel
I am in South Africa’s major English language newspaper, the Mail & Guardian, in an apparent repeat of Paul Harris’ article in the Guardian of London. The article quotes my column about Steven Spielberg’s upcoming Stockholm Syndrome-esque movie, “Vengeance,” which humanizes the Islamic terrorists who murdered the Israeli athletes in Munich in 1972.
As I’ve already written, I disagree with part of the reporter’s premise. He writes, “Now director Steven Spielberg is taking on another Jewish issue, with a film on the aftermath of the massacre of 11 Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics.” No, Mr. Harris, this isn’t a “Jewish issue.” Terrorism is EVERYONE’s issue. Forget 7/7 already?

Of course it’s everyones issue, although it always strikes me strange that it’s the ones that affect Jews and rarely anyone else that are always highlighted.
