Act of Valor OUTRAGE: Navy SEALs Movie’s Terrorist is . . . JEWISH (Tortures, Murders CIA Agents, Smuggles Jihadists into U.S.)

By Debbie Schlussel

It’s official:  “Act of Valor” is anti-Semitic tripe wrapped in the American flag with a Navy SEAL cherry on top.  The movie, which debuts in theaters today, goes to great pains to tell you that the largest terrorist plot against America is perpetrated by  a Jew.  Did the Stormfront guys write this crap? In case there’s any doubt, “But you’re Jewish!” is shouted by a real-life Navy SEAL interrogator who heads SEAL Team 7 featured in the movie and goes by the nickname, “Senior.”  Apparently “Senior” forgot this, but the last time I checked, the guys behind 9/11 were not named Osama Bin Cohen and Khalid Sheikh Horowitz.  Ditto for the guys behind every major terrorist attack against Americans, whether on U.S. soil or abroad.  The Beirut bombing and murder of over 300 U.S. Marines and civilians?  Here’s a tip, Navy SEALS:  It wasn’t perpetrated by HezboLox&Bagels. And the guy just sentenced for trying to blow up a plane full of Americans with his underwear isn’t Umar Farouk AbdulEpstein.

But, apparently, the real life Navy SEALs and their wives and kids who participated in this movie don’t have a problem with portraying Jews as “jihadist terrorists,” nor do the many Pentagon officials who approved their participation and the movie’s production.  Ditto for Mike “Mouse” McCoy and Scott Waugh, former stuntmen and the first time directors who made this movie.  They apparently believe that Jews torture CIA agents and smuggle jihadists into the U.S. with suicide bomb vests, NOT Muslims.

The Pentagon and the Navy have both declined to respond to my questions regarding this absolutely disgusting display of anti-Semitism, which wasn’t necessary and ruined what would have been an otherwise good movie. They didn’t have to make the terrorist financier Jewish. They chose to. This was clearly gratuitously inserted for some agenda. Goebbels would be proud. Sad that Rush Limbaugh had no problem with this, either, as he gushed over the movie. Does he also believe the real men behind the jihadists are Russian Jews (or any Jews at all)?


There’s been a lot of hype surrounding “Act of Valor,” and, sad to say, I bought into it until I saw the movie and couldn’t have been more disgusted and outraged.  But none of the hype tells you that at the heart of the movie is major anti-Semitism. Gee, I wonder why the “But You’re Jewish!” line isn’t in the trailer.  The movie features a Russian Jewish millionaire, “Christos” (played by Ukrainian actor Alex Veadov) as a terrorist mastermind who kills a CIA agent, kidnaps and tortures another CIA agent, and then helps a friend of his smuggle jihadists wearing bomb belts into the United States from Mexico in a plot “100 times bigger than 9/11.” Um, how many Russian Jewish billionaires are illegal alien smugglers into America’s southern border?  None.  Juan and Jesus ain’t exactly Russian Jewish names.  But why let the facts get in the way of this government-approved anti-Semitic propaganda, right?

That Was Then (Goebbels Propaganda Against Jews) . . .

yellowstar.jpg

This Is Now (Navy SEALs Propaganda Against Jews). . .

yellowstar.jpg

While it is true that his childhood friend, “Karimov,” whom he’s helping perpetrate the plot, says he’s a Muslim convert, he’s in fact, a Russian named Yuri, whose father’s name is Yevgeni and it isn’t so clear he’s actually really a Muslim. (Oh, and by the way, the writers of this ap-cray movie don’t know Arabic and screw that part up, too, as they name the guy “Abu Shabal,” and then have his friend tell him he’s the son of Yevgeni, not Shabal. Abu means “father of,” not “son of,” in Arabic.)  In any event, the main bad guy is the Jewish millionaire who has his henchmen drill into the hands of a female CIA agent to get her to talk, after they’ve murdered her fellow agent.  And the movie makes clear that real, actual Muslims from the Philippines, who’ve been recruited to wear suicide bomb vests and blow themselves up all over America, don’t really want to do it.  After a scene showing them praying on the ground of a desert somewhere, they ultimately cry and look scared, as the Russian pseudo-Muslim friend of the Jew forces them into wearing the vests and pulling the cord.

Yeah, I know–it’s like another pointless, fraudulent season of the former FOX series, “24,” in which the Islamic terrorists always turn out to be working for some evil White man, not Muslims or jihad.

With the anti-Semitic plot point, the movie was ruined for me and I recommend that you skip it.

But it’s not just a movie.  It’s a reminder that real-life Navy SEALs and top Pentagon and U.S. Navy brass have no problem with a plot portraying a Jew as the key terrorist in a jihadist plot, something that bears no resemblance to reality. If you wanna see a good movie about this outfit, rent “Navy SEALS.” No matter how un”winning” Charlie Sheen may be now, he at least had the guts to star in a movie in which the real terrorists (Islamic terrorists) are the terrorists–the way Hollywood used to show us back in the good old days of 1990 before we rewarded Muslims for 9/11.

To paraphrase the great Mark Twain, there are lies, damn lies, and “Act of Valor.”  That’s the most damned lie of all.

Hey, who needs the Protocols of the Elders of Zion and blood libels, when you have Navy SEAL propaganda feature films?

There’s nothing valorous in Jew-baiting on the silver screen. Act of Valor isn’t an Act of Valor at all. Not even close.

***

Below is the e-mail I sent Amanda Greenberg, the Navy press person who is handling all inquiries regarding “Act of Valor.”  And, yes, I see the irony in her apparently Jewish surname. But I’m sure you’ve heard the term, “kapo.” The e-mail went unanswered, after Navy personnel assured me she would respond.  I encourage you to write her to complain about this vicious Jew-hatred.

Subject: Press Inquiry Re- “Act of Valor” Movie . . .
To: Amanda Greenberg

Ms. Greenberg:

I’m a journalist (whose work has appeared in the Wall Street Journal
and New York Post and who has been quoted in almost every major media
outlet) and the movie critic for the SiriusXM Patriot Channel Morning
Show (“Mike Church Show”), and I have a few questions regarding “Act
of Valor.” I’m told by the Navy press office that you are handling
these inquiries. I’m on deadline and need this information by late
tonight, as I’m writing a review and will be discussing the film
tomorrow morning on SiriusXM, as well as another radio outlet.

Who at the Pentagon, US Navy or Navy SEALs was in charge of approving
“Act of Valor”?
Was the final product vetted?
Was the script vetted?
Was there no problem expressed or objections to the fact that the
script makes a Jewish billionaire the bad guy and the smuggler and
financier behind the major terrorism plot?
What is the position of whomever vetted and approved the final script, regarding anti-Semitism?
Can that person name a single major terrorist plot against America in
which Jews were involved?
I note your name is Greenberg. Does it not offend you that the major
players in the “jihadist” plot in this movie are not really Muslims,
but a Jew and a Russian who “converted”?
Are there any Jewish Navy SEALs?
How do you think it will affect Jewish Naval officers and enlisted
men, knowing that their branch of the U.S. Armed Forces believes that
Jews will be behind a major terrorist plot against America?

I look forward to your timely response. I can be reached at
[redacted], should you have any questions.

Thank you.

Debbie Schlussel

Again, Ms. Greenberg chose not to respond. Gee, I wonder why.

Don’t give money to blood libel movies like this that seek to turn America against the Jews using patriotism, the flag, and the Navy SEALs. This flick clearly earns its rating of . . .

I’ll take back a previous comment about getting the movie from the Torrent.

I’ll just watch porn instead.

The Reverend Jacques on February 24, 2012 at 3:47 pm

    It would be a better use of your bandwith.

    Worry01 on February 24, 2012 at 6:37 pm

F#$^W%$&!, I so wanted to see what I thought would be a sensible treatment of the enemy, but nooooo, these donks go PC all over it. IT totally negates the whole movie’s effort to portray the SEAL’s in an other than hollywood set of glasses. Instead they have re-filtered it to pull a gotcha on the viewers. GTE “Valor” makers. @$@%Q!

jake49 on February 24, 2012 at 3:52 pm

Who funded this film? Who was behind this film? Who are the films writers, directors, producers?

Additionally, has anyone other than me noticed how anti-Semitism has skyrocketed under Obama? Is this a coincidence? I doubt it.

This anti-Semitic campaign going on in our society is very well organized.

Jonathan E. Grant on February 24, 2012 at 4:00 pm

    Agreed Jon, those are good/great questions that you raised and bought up, and since you mentioned that anti-semitisim has increased under Obama, it might be coincidence, but I’m not into conspiracy thinking.

    And Reverned Jacques, I to rather watch adult-films instead of this film, hell, I have more respect for pornographers than I do for the directors and producers of this film.

    “A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

    Sean R. on February 24, 2012 at 4:13 pm

      With all due apologies to Ron Jeremy, he never pulled this kind of sick crap!

      If you want to know what real-life porn looks like, this movie fits the bill.

      At least adult movies aren’t filmed with the intent to libel an entire people as terrorists who threaten the well being of the United States.

      If there are any Jewish SEALs, they should consider this movie reprehensible!

      NormanF on February 24, 2012 at 4:53 pm

        @Norman F. not to change the subject but porn actors and producers are just as filthy and corrupt if the price is right,so let s not make them look like white lilies….they are scum too.

        Juan on February 24, 2012 at 10:29 pm

          Juan, let me ask you a question sir, where would you rather live, would you rather live in a country that produces and directs adult films, or would you rather live in any muslim country in the middle east or southeast asia where adult films are outlawed and illegal due to sharia law/islamic law?

          My pick would be here in the USA or any western country that is able to produce and direct pornography, NOT in a theocractic backwards society that’s stuck in the 12th century.

          And don’t get me wrong bro, adult films are not that great, some of their producers are kinda corrupt as you claimed!

          “A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

          Sean R. on February 24, 2012 at 10:52 pm

          Juan, not to change the subject but people having sex on celluloid has never gotten any one killed.

          Brainwashing people to hate Jews as this movie does, has gotten Jews killed. Its the lowest form of incitement.

          A movie that disseminates bigotry and hate can warp people’s minds. “Act Of Valor” is gutter-level trash.

          Porn doesn’t pretend to be art. This movie on the other hand could have told an uplifting story. It chose to do the opposite.

          I don’t approve of porn but I don’t approve either of anti-Semitic incitement dressed up as noble motives.

          It justly earned those Goebbels ratings Debbie gave it and one would think such crude racism disappeared after the Holocaust. Sad to say, its open season again on Jews.

          And I’m not waiting with bated breath for the apologies that will never come!

          NormanF on February 25, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    Jon, this movie is on my sh*t list.

    I won’t watch any thing that is quality Bin Laden cinema!

    This is the most shameful movie I’ve ever seen reviewed. I feel disgusted and deeply offended!

    I am glad my beloved and revered father is not alive to see it.

    Like Debbie wrote, who needs The Koran and Mein Kampf, when you have anti-Semitism financed and filmed with the official approval of the US Government and the Armed Forces?

    Don’t hold your breath waiting for a US government apology 3,2,1….

    NormanF on February 24, 2012 at 4:30 pm

    I think I’ve solved the “mystery” behind why this movie “Act of Valor” has an anti-Jewish theme. You have to look a little beyond the official “producers” of the movie, called the “Bandito Brothers,” and look to who is actually pushing and promoting the movie. That lead us to Fox. And Fox leads us to its owner, News Corporation. And News Corp. leads us to one of its top shareholders: Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal. bin Talal freely spends a lot of his loot on pro-terrorist causes and that naturally includes anti-Jewish activity. So, although I don’t have proof that bin Talal is the real money behind “Act of Valor,” I see some of bin Talal’s “fingerprints” on the scene.

    As for why the U.S. Government cooperated fully in this anti-Jewish exercise, that’s also not all that difficult to understand. Pandering to Islamic terrorists has become official U.S. policy under Obama, and any suggestion that Muslims are behind terrorism from official U.S. Government is simply forbidden. However, attacking Jews is okay with the U.S. Government.

    Fortunately, at least SOME reviewers are getting it……http://www.startribune.com/entertainment/movies/140176663.html. Again, we thank Debbie for standing by her principles. Sadly, such a very rare thing in the media today.

    Ralph Adamo on February 24, 2012 at 6:27 pm

Apparently this blew by Rush because he gave it a thumbs up today.

J: A lot of things “blow by” Rush. He’s not exactly the world’s crusader against anti-Semitism. He frequently praises the anti-Semitic, anti-Israel United Arab Emirates and Dubai and wanted them to control our ports. Janne, you need to think for yourself b/c Rush does not have any critical thinking skills on issues like this. Remember, he was a huge fan of “24” for its entire run b/c the show’s producer kissed his ass. And “24” did the same crap, but not as bad. DS

Janne on February 24, 2012 at 4:05 pm

    Debbie, I agree. I listen to Rush but don’t follow him in lockstep. Just sayin’ – he didn’t pick up on it like you did. Also, I have never agreed with his praise for “24.” I’m a “Sleeper Cell” fan myself.

    Janne on February 24, 2012 at 5:16 pm

    It’s unfortunate that such media representatives as Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter are considered to be leading figures in today’s conservative movement.

    For me, having grown up watching William F. Buckley’s “Firing Line” TV program, they are a very pale substitute for Bill Buckley. I think that we he died he left a huge gap in the conservative movement that will be very difficult to replace. Buckley was clearly an intellectual giant compared to Limbaugh and Coulter, and was very well read in many other areas besides politics and history.

    But the dissimilarities go further than that. In the 1950s, when Buckley became to be the force in American Conservatism that he is know for today, the conservative movement was tainted by anti-semitism. And it still is today to some extent, given the air play that such figures as Pat Buchanan get. To Buckley’s credit, however, he banned any such anti-semitic strains from his conservative publication, National Review. Buckely had a principle about that, he has always been firm and unyielding on the matter.

    The same cannot be said, however, of Limbaugh and Coulter. Now I know that Limbaugh has long admired Buckley, and that when Buckley was alive, he generally liked Limbaugh, but the fact is that Limbaugh is no Buckley, intellectually or morally. And Limbaugh’s failure to observe and respond to the inherent anti-semitic message of “An Act of Valor” is a demonstration of Limbaugh’s conservative shortcomings.

    Ralph Adamo on February 26, 2012 at 1:24 pm

So much for the family movie night tomorrow!

Craig B on February 24, 2012 at 4:05 pm

It’s well know that there is a high degree of anti-Semitism throughout the Defense Department. This has been even more the case now that the Government is afraid that Israel might attack Iran, which would interfere with the Defense Department goal of appeasing Iran.

It is also well-known that in addition to the anti-Semitism in the Defense Department that has stretched back to the 19th Century (forerunners of the Defense Department), there has been a campaign to appease and whitewash Muslims. The Defense Department’s participation in this screed needs to be seen in this light.

For all we know, having a Jewish ‘terrorist’ as the villain might have even been DoD’s idea.

Little Al on February 24, 2012 at 4:09 pm

My son is in the Navy, attached to a helicopter squadron that had done some training with the SEALS, I really wanted to see this movie, but I guess I’ll stay home now – how disappointing!

John on February 24, 2012 at 4:10 pm

what you know more cry baby Jews complaining about something…maybe when Jews stop being such patsies for Democrats and liberals people will take them serious. Just because a Jew is portrayed as the villain in a movie does not remotely give the impression that Jews are terrorists. Israel is known to kill anyone friend or foe as they see fit, and like all groups of people there are a lot of bad apples. To associate a movie about Navy Seals with Nazis is way too far, Stop being a sissy jew and act like a man

scott on February 24, 2012 at 4:13 pm

    Scott, thanks for telling us how you really feel!

    The Jews don’t run the world cuz this movie is Exhibit #1 no such conspiracy exists.

    Anti-Semitism is fashionable again. I wasn’t exactly surprised by the pick of the villain.

    As for whitewashing Muslims and Islam, well they can’t be shown as they really are. Its not politically correct!

    But Jews won’t riot and burn down the Pentagon and the White House. So its easier to use psychological projection on the Jews all the things Muslims do in real life and then some.

    Everything in the movie is true. Just not about a Jewish terrorist – about an Islamic one and hey, I bet even money the Islamic terrorists actually work for the Elders Of Zion! ;-)

    At least according to this invalorous movie!

    NormanF on February 24, 2012 at 4:40 pm

    Scotty:

    Thank you for giving us your Stormfront perspective. Do you really think that Jews are behind Jihad? Are you also a 9/11 Truther as well? Do tell us Scotty? Put the Diet Dr. Pepper down and tell us.

    Worry01 on February 24, 2012 at 6:25 pm

    Scott:

    Help me out here. Sometime next month I’m supposed to be the Jew in the Bermuda Cave controlling the world’s money supply. It’s a nice gig, while I’m in The Cave the wife and kids go shopping.

    But somewhere, I’ve lost my schedule, dammit. I know guys like you know which Jew is in The Cave 365 days a year because you track us so close. Can you tell me what day(s) I’m supposed to be in there in March?

    Thanks,

    Evil Zionist Overlord (Ezo) of the Zionist Occupation Government (ZOG)

    Occam's Tool on February 25, 2012 at 8:26 pm

      Heh.

      Maybe he can explain to us why Islamic terrorists would take their orders from the ZOG.

      After all, if Jews run the world, why wouldn’t they undermine America themselves?

      The problem with conspiracy theories is that in truth, no actual conspiracy exists.

      There are too many “attractive” features and none of them conform to the Law Of Parsimony.

      But in a movie, why let reality get in the way of believing in the impossible? Too bad it couldn’t be ruled by common sense.

      NormanF on February 25, 2012 at 11:09 pm

Debbie,

Thanks for the heads up on this film. I had planned on seeing it, especially since it advertises the use of “real” Navy SEALs.

I will not spend money on crap like this.

I always appreciate everything you do.

Lee

lee on February 24, 2012 at 4:17 pm

And this is an election year!

It goes without saying, speaking of kapos, that the Government would never have let this go out if they thought they would lose significant Jewish votes because of this. They undoubtedly cleared this sub rosa with the Jewish Democratic establishment before going through with this, as I’m sure they do with most of their attacks on Jewish interests, such as those of the Israelis.

Little Al on February 24, 2012 at 4:23 pm

    Its not like Obama cares if Jews get offended!

    Sad to say, most of them will vote for him again in November.

    The conclusion you can draw is the federal government has a lot of respect for Muslims.

    On the other hand, the Jews are the Rodney Dangerfield of American society. They will never threaten America over a movie the way Muslims threaten America over the Koran.

    They’re too decent and patriotic to terrorize Americans into abject submission. Which is why Hollywood can treat them like garbage!

    Keep that in mind as you read Debbie’s review today and you’ll understand why they will never pick Muslims as the villain.

    And why Jews make the perfect cinematic villain.

    NormanF on February 24, 2012 at 5:05 pm

Thanks for the heads-up on this anti-Semitic. islamo-pandering piece of garbage propaganda, Debbie.

DS_ROCKS! on February 24, 2012 at 5:01 pm

Scott, you’re an absolute moron. You don’t get it and never will and I am glad you’re not on my side. Your side is shameful and WRONG.

I really can’t even wrap my mind around this thread. It’s shocking to me and I am not easily shocked.

If what I just read is not my mind playing tricks on me (a major movie portraying JEWS as terrorists and terrorist funders) I am at a loss of words.

What a disgrace. We are in the UTMOST TROUBLE in this once great country if anyone thinks that a NEW movie showcasing our Navy Seals in combat against Jewish inspired terrorists can even be released when we are (and the whole world) drowning in Islamic Jihad.

This takes Political Correctness so far that one can only blame the dopey dupes who would believe such NONSENSE!!!!!!!!!! Bring on the 2nd term of Obama because if this movie floats then that is what this country wants. I’m disgusted!

Skunky on February 24, 2012 at 5:16 pm

Debbie, per your comment to my original post above… I agree. I listen to Rush but don’t follow him in lockstep. Just sayin’ – he didn’t pick up on it like you did. Also, I have never agreed with his praise for “24.” I’m a “Sleeper Cell” fan myself.

J: Good. Glad you get it. He didn’t “pick up on it” b/c he clearly didn’t care. It’s very blatant and gratuitous. His friend, blowhard Michael Amnesty/JohnMcCainOrgasm Medved, said it’s a great movie, which should tell you what kind of Jew and conservative he is: a fake one. DS

Janne on February 24, 2012 at 5:18 pm

    Debbie’s right… it reminds me of the racist movies D.W Griffith made.

    Medved may be right its technically proficient filmmaking but as Debbie said, if he couldn’t see the anti-Semitic plot at the heart of this movie, it shows how much attention he gives to his own Jewish faith – or rather, the lack of it.

    I don’t care if Leni Reifenstal produced and directed this movie. No decent person should watch it because Jew-baiting is something for which we should have zero tolerance in this country.

    And if that’s dressed up as patriotism, the flag and the SEALs, it deserves to be boycotted even more! We can all can thank Debbie for saving us from having to fund such cinematic trash! At least, I won’t lose two hours of my life I can never get back.

    NormanF on February 24, 2012 at 5:32 pm

    You are correct DS! I just heard Medfraud’s review and he gave it 4 stars and said it was one of the best of the year (so far). He’s really gone 100% shameless.

    Thank goodness I know DS has waaaaaaaay more credibility than Medfraud. And DS is spot on on how she described him above. It is absolutely sickening. He has shown his true colours since MaObama has been elected and that is why an angry caller called him a “scared Liberal” yesterday!

    And I paid rapt attention because I know Medfraud is Jewish but he did NOT mention that and when he FIRST mentioned the terrorists, he mentioned the Mastermind as Russian (!!!!) and then corrected himself and said said “Russian Muslim”. Because he knew he had to at least add the magic word because he may have gone PC but not his total audience (hopefully).

    Gathering the interview he had with Waugh (producer or director, I dunno…) he said he could not get Hollywood funding so he funded it himself. If that is the case then there was NO NEED TO DO THE HOLLYWOOD WHITEWASH. It makes me even more angry. Why didn’t they go with the TRUTH? Why have a Russian, Jew, Mooooslim convert? No excuse if you had eff you money and did it on your own. The only terrorist you would need would be Mooooooooslim!

    And it is NOT cool to turn your back on the Jews. EVER. I am Christian and I won’t do it and they need our support (and we, theirs) more than EVER. Never turn on the Jews. It’s not right and NOT what God wants!

    Skunky on February 24, 2012 at 5:55 pm

Debbie – you just saved me the cost of a ticket. I was looking forward to seeing this movie. Not now – not on pay per view – not ever. As I was reading your post, I was thinking of “24”. What a bunch of crap.

Road Warrior on February 24, 2012 at 5:21 pm

Well, here’s ol’ Scott, a new contributor who emerges just when the Jewish Democrats are being attacked.

Ol’ Scott is probably not associated with Hollywood, because Debbie attacks Hollywood every week, and Ol’ Scott never wrote anything before today.

Probably with the Government, as we know the ICE bureaucrats attack Debbie. So which is it Scott? DoD, ICE, or one of the staff members for Jewish Congressional leaders?

And BTW, your eyesight must be failing, ol’ Scott. Debbie is a woman, not a man.

Little Al on February 24, 2012 at 5:21 pm

But of course, how could I have missed it? Not to say that Ol’ Scott for sure is Amanda Greenberg, but she and her cohorts were certainly alerted when Debbie contacted her, so she and her anti-Semitic (pardon the duplication) friends knew, and were alerted to the fact Debbie would write something about this movie. So, doesn’t take much to figure out that Scott quite likely has some connection with the Navy. Maybe the Navy’s job description is expanding, now that there are so few ships, they need something else to occupy their time.

Little Al on February 24, 2012 at 5:33 pm

I agree with Mr. Grant. Jew hatred is hip, from the President on down.

As I tell the lefty Jews who bash Israel, “you had better lay off because there may come a day when you need to go there. Just take a look around.”

adam on February 24, 2012 at 5:39 pm

Debbie,

Google up Larry Auster and ‘the liberal script’ to understand why this movie is written the way it is. According to modern liberalism (ie leftism), the true villains are always white non-leftist males. Muslims can NEVER be evil in and of themselves. They can only be the pawns of the truly great evil and that will be one of the following:

1) white heterosexual Christian males
2) capitalist and businessmen
3) CIA agents – make that white CIA agents (ie ‘The Expendables’)
4) Israelis (and Jews) – usually not the Left’s first target but the Left will always defend Islam and Muslims over Israel and Jew which is of course ironic as a large contingent of today’s Left are Jews themselves. Never underestimate the self-loathing of Jewish Leftists.

This is the liberal script and EVERY movie must answer to it (think Avatar, V for Vendetta, Unknown, etc, etc ad nauseum). The Left will not allow Muslim villains. It will not allow Islam to be criticized. The Left is doing to Islam what it did to Communism; ie protecting and enabling it. The Left demonized anti-Communists and it is demonizing anti-Islam advocates (ie Robert Spencer, Andrew Bostom, etc.).

If there is one thing on this earth that is more evil than Islam, it is the Left.

Jack on February 24, 2012 at 5:47 pm

What a big disappointment! I was so looking forward to this movie. Look like I’m not going to spend any money on it. WTFH is wrong with the Pentagon and the US Navy?!

Bob on February 24, 2012 at 5:48 pm

There will be outrage by the common street, leftwing and muslim scum in november if the halfbreed muslim president of theirs is not elected to a second term. actually the violence against republicans and jews will start long before election day. this is 1939s germany all over again. these pieces of sheit must be stopped before 1 human gets hurt.

a “former” muslim half bred is not a human.

its more like a monkey that speaks other than ebonic.

bill on February 24, 2012 at 6:01 pm

Why pay Hollywood a dime? Why give a penny to the leftist actors and producing MONEYGRABERS!

This movie should up on The Pirate Bay of Sweden AND FOR FREE!

Shove it Hollywood and half-bred Obama’s @ss!

bill on February 24, 2012 at 6:13 pm

So Hollywood can give us a Jewish Jihadi terrorist, but they can’t release a single major studio film in which Natalie Portman plays an explicitly Jewish character? (that’s a fact, although No Strings Attached hinted at it). The same is true of her co-religionists, Paul Rudd, Logan Lerman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Mila Kunis, etc., and will no doubt stay true.

dee on February 24, 2012 at 6:17 pm

you all know this is just a movie right? a movie

    A movie supported by the US Government that won’t tell us who the real enemies are because the moviemakers are GUTLESS PUSSIES and the Warriors involved, while physically brave, ARE MORAL COWARDS.

    That’s the problem with it. Jesse Ventura was also a SEAL. He is also a shithead.

    These warriors denigrated their own country and service by serving in this POS.

    Sorry, I see the antisemitism in it. And, if there’s anything that pisses me off, it’s someone telling me I’m not bright enough to figure out who my enemies are. I have had considerably more experience than anyone else on this website save the author with psychopaths; I was the psychiatrist at the Alabama prison where the chain gang was. I’m also a MENSAN. Please, I know what evil looks and smells like. Screw off.

    Occam's Tool on February 25, 2012 at 8:33 pm

Since this picture received such heavy government backing, they bear the blame for what it turned out to be. Also, any Navy Seal who would willing participate in such a film is unworthy of their position.

It sounds like a reprise of that hoary claim that “Jews Pull the Strings”. It is amazing that a mainstream motion picture in the United States today would even carry suck dreck.We are dealing with Mustafa, and not Emmanuel Goldstein when we confront Jihadists.

Worry01 on February 24, 2012 at 6:36 pm

I guarantee that, within the next decade, we see informal anti-Jewish bias or discrimination in employment (especially government employment), education, recreation, social institutions, etc.

adam on February 24, 2012 at 6:56 pm

Not buying it. George Soros is/was Jewish so to hate him is now to hate all Jews.

Glenn Beck has the trailer on his site/show. If there was anyone who knows anti-Semite propaganda it might just be him.

Tjexcite on February 24, 2012 at 6:56 pm

Has anyone here considered that the villain of the movie might be a veiled reference to that creepy old Hungarian Jewish billionaire that so many of us on the Right consider to be the embodiment of Evil?

The movie interrogator exclaims, “But you’re Jewish!” To me, that at least admits the possibility that he is astounded that a Jew could stoop to such evil. Had the line been, “Well, you’re Jewish, that explains it”, then you would have clearly-expressed anti-Semitism.

I have not seen the movie, and I don’t plan to; I’m not a go-to-movies kind of guy. But based simply upon what I read above, I fail to see rampant anti-Semitism.

Alberta Oil Peon on February 24, 2012 at 6:57 pm

Wow, some of these comments like Alberta’s and TJ’s really reflect the dumbing down that has taken place, and helps explain why the Navy and its Hollywood stooges figured they could get away with this.

To say it simply, the terrorists who plague the world are not Jewish, they are Muslim. So when a movie, contrary to fact, portrays the terrorists as Jewish, especially at a time when Israel and its Jewish supporters are under attack more than has been the case in decades, it distorts reality, at Jewish expense, and must be seen as anti-Semitism.

Movies do have influence, and while Soros does finance many left-wing movements, and is soft on terrorism, it is a reach to say he is financing terrorism. And most of the terrorist financiers are Muslims.

It is debasing to have to say these obvious things, but I am a little sympathetic to these numbskulls since they are victims of the PC dumbing down of our schools, and the PC propaganda that has infested our society since the 60s.

Little Al on February 24, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    Bingo, Little Al! When you have dopes on here like SCOTT, PETE, TJEXCITE, and the perpetual juvenile LOLWHAT? (Don’t be fooled, this 13 year old douche left the what? off his/her name this time) spouting their uninformed nonsense you know they are products of subpar brains and a dumbed-down intellect.

    DS’ record speaks for itself. She knows her jihad better than anyone and she is a movie reviewer. We come here weekly to read her reviews. She is NOT over-reacting. Those that think so are diseased with PCness and don’t know the hardcore facts…they just like to be dumb contrarians. And all it takes to do that is be dumb and take the opposite opinion of those who actually KNOW FACTS!

    I was just listening to a radio show that does Friday movie reviews and the ding-dong, air-headed, hollywood kiss-up reporter (Kim Serafin….who must be at least 40 and still talks as if she learned how to speak from Moon Unit Zappa’s one-hit-wonder “Valley Girl” from the early 80’s) was reviewing the movie and exclaimed it was “fake” and “made up” and that it was prolly good that it did not take on reality (read:MOOOOOOOOOOOOOSLIMS) so people could enjoy the entertainment. As DS would say “HUH?”?????????????

    Yeah, because why get lost in the politics of it? One might learn too much and actually NOT be cowed by PCness and learn how to articulate the danger of the jihadis and warn others not in the know!

    What will strangle the dopes of America first…political correctness or Islamic jihad?

    Skunky on February 24, 2012 at 8:40 pm

    Al, you know nothing about me. To conclude that I have been “dumbed down” by PC indoctrination in the schools is a real stretch, seeing as I graduated high school in 1968, before the PC rot really set in.

    I support Jews, and I support Israel, and I have no use for muslims, other than I tolerate those who are basically secular. I certainly agree that nearly all terrorists in today’s world are muslims, as are their financiers, and that they do what they do by reason of their interpretation of the koran. That doesn’t preclude the possibility that some non-muslim evildoer might co-opt muslim terrorists as a force to further his schemes, as appears to be the plot device in this movie.

    I know real anti-Semitism when I see it, and sorry, but I just don’t see it here. If you want to convince me that this movie is reeking of anti-Semitism, you will need to come up with better evidence.

    I have to say I rather like Gerald’s take on the whole thing.

    And one of the reasons I don’t go to movies is that it so damn hard to find movies anymore that aren’t loaded with PC and Marxist memes.

    Alberta Oil Peon on February 24, 2012 at 8:44 pm

pete – it’s that kind of attitude that has this country in the shape it is. Apathy runs rampant.

Road Warrior on February 24, 2012 at 7:25 pm

What happened to, “‘Act of Valor': Does Navy SEAL Porn Give America’s Enemies Valuable Intel?” which had the statement: “I’ve been looking forward to this movie, which I haven’t yet seen and which I’ll be screening with other movie critics early this week (my review will be up on this site on Friday)”?
I supposed it may show that something that looks good and about which one is is excited can turn out to be something different than one expected. I guess high expectation is not reality. I have seen this happen many times, where people are so excited for something and claiming it is the best (not saying that is what you were saying), only to be faced with something different when it was released.

MH on February 24, 2012 at 7:41 pm

Debbie

This is by no means the first time Hollywood has made Jews the perpetrators of Jihad terrorism. An even worse example was in an episode of the remake of V, where multiple simultaneous suicide bobmings in the US were revealed to be the work of …. a Mossad agent. See:

http://edgar1981.blogspot.com/2011/04/demonisation-of-israel-propaganda.html

Edgar Davidson on February 24, 2012 at 7:42 pm

Please correct me if I’m wrong. It appears that the release of this movie coincides with the Feb 26 -March 3 Israel Apartheid week at US universities. Intentional marketing.

Another question: Has the downing of the Seals helicopter been fully investgated? According to the laws of science & engineering there is no way that a helicopter of that advanced engineering could have been taken down by hand held rockets. A manufacturer’s explantion with scientific forensics should be transparent for all to make up their minds.

Eyes Wide Open on February 24, 2012 at 7:54 pm

Remember the Chris Tucker/Jackie Chan cinematic classic “Rush Hour 2″ (possibly the only movie in history to be racist against whites, blacks, Hispanics and Asians, as well as being both misogynistic and misandric)? Well, it laid out the “follow the rich white man” theory. Tucker and Chan were after this Asian criminal syndicate who killed Chan’s father, but the root cause of the criminality was a wealthy white fellow who was bankrolling the Asian criminals. So, Tucker and Chan left Asia where the criminals who killed Chan’s father were in order to come back to America to capture the wealthy white male. Ah, great cinema, good times!

This is more of it. Hollywood knows that they have to deal with Muslim terror in some form because it is, you know, reality and a pressing issue. So the way to do it is to advance this (longtime staple of Marxism) that the “root cause” of all problems in the world committed by nonwhites is the manipulation of political, economic and social systems by capitalist whites. Neo-colonialism theory, multiculturalism, and other Marxist ideologies could not exist without it, because the “blame the rich white man” device is needed to explain such things as tribal warfare and corrupt, oppressive, genocidal third world leaders. Third world Marxist leaders have blamed the conspiracies and meddling of western capitalist politicians, bankers, industrialists etc. for the failures of their own workers’ paradises and their horrible human rights records for who knows how long. And a version of it is used to explain urban/inner city/underclass pathology in America. A good example of this: the movie “Pearl Harbor”, where the noble, honorable peace-loving Japanese were forced to attack an America that they highly respected because of our oil embargo against them (oil is the catch-all default excuse for every tribal war, famine, despot and other third world failure and calamity).

As far as the left taking a liberal stance on Muslim terror: that isn’t new. Remember “The Siege”, that Bruce Willis/Denzel Washington movie, where the “bad guys” weren’t REALLY the terrorists but the white military conservatives like Willis’ character that was trying to protect us from them? Or “The Long Kiss Goodnight” from 1996 where foreign policy conservatives were going to stage a phony Muslim terror attack in order to get social welfare program money diverted to defense? And so on.

Instead, the difference is the Jewish involvement. That is the story. According to the left, Jews are no longer minorities. Anti-Semitism is now only something that they can use to marginalize conservative politicians. Other than that, Jews have now “become white” (to borrow from the famous racial sociology book “How The Irish Became White”). When and why did it happen? September 11th, when the solution to the war on terror (according to the left) was resolving the fact that the Muslims hated us. That meant siding with the Palestinian narrative in Israel for the sake of Middle Eastern and world peace for one thing. It also meant adding “Islamophobia” to the list of major “isms” (i.e. racism, sexism, environmentalism). And the embrace of Israel by conservative GOP evangelicals during that time was the clincher. That put Israel and the Zionists on the side of “the establishment”, causing the progressives to go to the other side. (Consider that conservative anti-Semitism was the only reason why a lot of liberals ever supported Israel and the Jews to begin with. Once conservatives embraced Jews and Israel also, defending Jews wasn’t “cool” or “hip” anymore, but defending Muslims from conservatives quickly came to be.)

So, seeing Jews – especially wealthy Askenazi Jews with money and influence – as “the enemy” is no longer the province of the radical left. It has now been embraced by the mainstream left, as the mainstream left no longer makes any real distinction between wealthy Jews and wealthy WASPs. And if Jews abandon Obama in 2012 – and Obama loses – expect the way that the left views wealthy influential Jews to get much, much worse. The best thing is that they are going to have people like Tom Friedman, John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt around to shield them from charges of anti-Semitism!

Gerald on February 24, 2012 at 7:57 pm

Yeah, because there’s never been a case of a Jewish person doing something wrong. Grow the fuck up.

L: Using the F-word is a real sign of a grown up, isn’t it? Um, how many Jews have ever conducted a major terrorist attack on America? NONE. Yes, there’s NEVER been a case of that. As for your pronouncement about growing up, it’s best said to your mirror. DS

lol on February 24, 2012 at 8:10 pm

Gerald,

Awesome comment. I wish more Conservatives and libertarians understood the racial and gender egalitarianism of the Left and the depth of its depravity.

Jack on February 24, 2012 at 8:34 pm

Wow. It is a movie. So what the “bad” guy is Jewish. Are you saying a movie is only ok when all the “bad guys” are non-jews?

If you want to change the public’s perception of Jews that how about actually changing the way you act.

About time to grow up.

BEn on February 24, 2012 at 8:34 pm

    Hey Ben, if you are so much more smart than all of us, why don’t you try to dismantle DS’ thesis point by point?

    Where is YOUR blog?

    About time YOU grew a brain. Until you can prove otherwise, we will just point and laugh at a dummy dope like you. A fifth grader would post something more substantive than you have!

    Pats, I agree with your take on Rush. I love his show and listen daily (he was and continues to be the front-runner when describing the evil plan of Obama…a plan frauds like Bill O’Reilly and Michael Medved STILL don’t buy into) but you hit on all his weak points superbly!

    Skunky on February 24, 2012 at 8:47 pm

      Skunky,who is this Michael Medveded you and Debbs talk about? you mean Mikael Medveded the russian primeminister? he reviews movies too?

      Juan on February 24, 2012 at 10:43 pm

        Juan, Michael Medved is a (so-called) Conservative Talk-show host. He has his own show based out of Washington or Oregon (I can’t care to remember which) during the 3pm-6pm hours. He is also a movie reviewer. That’s how I first came to know him in the 80’s as he had a “Siskel & Ebert” type show on PBS with Jeffrey Lyons (I think that was the other dudes name) called “Sneak Previews”. He reviews movies on Friday on his show too.

        His show USED to be one of my favourites because he is highly intelligent and seems to have a photographic memory. However, since the election of ZerObama, he has become extremely milquetoasty and his unwillingness to connect the dots on Obama (that he is a crypto-Marxist) and his “open borders” John McCain-like amnesty jones insults my intelligence. I know he is suppose to be the smartest guy in the room but I refuse to believe that because I have a brain that thinks too. He’s zooming me and so I don’t listen to his show anymore (when I control the radio). As DS said, real Jews and REAL Conservatives don’t need him. We got the Liberals that think as he does.

        He used to be a Liberal too (he was in the room when RFK was killed) and I enjoyed his book years back when I bought it but he seems to be reverting back to Liberalism. It’s offensive and off-putting and his articles on The Daily Beast have been retarded lately too…

        It’s the easiest thing to doubt what DS says sometimes but I have learned to wait…she will turn out to be correct and she is absolutely correct on Michael Medfraud!

        Skunky on February 24, 2012 at 11:24 pm

“Sad that Rush Limbaugh had no problem with this, either, as he gushed over the movie. Does he also believe the real men behind the jihadists are Russian Jews?”

Debbie, Rush has yet to say ANYTHING about terrorism, Islam, or any serious issue facing this country. He has never once touched Fast and Furious, the death of Brian Terry, and many other real Constitution-damaging issues and misdeeds. He likes to discuss “inane” political issues, football, golf, his tea. When has he fully discussed all of the corruption of this admin’s “green energy” loans (for an example). Rush, in my opinion, is a only a primer for people who are starting out in politics. If one is still “listening” to him, then he/she hasn’t developed beyond political preschool.

ps -Great review!

Pats on February 24, 2012 at 8:41 pm

    @Pats I can t let any one slander Rush in such a false way,you obviously only hear snippets of his show bc he has talked about the corruption of this administration from Solyndra to fiskas or fiskes the european car maker,cash for clunkers, he has talked about islam and terrorism being connected,I would advice you listen to his show everyday to really know what he talks or doesn t talk about,he talks about so many issues and doesn t stay in one issue day after day,if you criticize Rush at least do it in an informed manner,yes I love Rush and he doesn t have an anti semitic bone in his body.

    Juan on February 24, 2012 at 11:02 pm

      Juan, I am criticizing him in a false way? Really?? Maybe you should pay closer attention to exactly what he is or isn’t saying. Nobody has stated that he is anti-semitic either. He sometimes just doesn’t have a problem with countries with terrorist ties having control over certain segments of our countries infrastructure. I still stand by my statement that he is a good primer for political beginners and that is it. Tell me, Juan, when has he talked about why the navy seals (Seal Team 6) had to die last year or the death of Brian Terry? Has he ever called for a Congressional investigation with either incident or anything that this admin has ever done that warrants this? (Here’s a hint: never). Also, Juan, you should look up the terms (I.e. slander) prior to using them and know the difference between what is slanderous and what is criticism. Plus, read what is being said and not what you think is being said. This is not slander … Just some helpful advice.

      Pats on February 25, 2012 at 6:12 am

I think I know why this is the case:

“And the movie makes clear that real, actual Muslims from the Philippines, who’ve been recruited to wear suicide bomb vests and blow themselves up all over America, don’t really want to do it.”

Because the movie industry is in fear of stereotyping people…unless they are white, vaguely Jewish, Italian, Greek or some other group that is open for negative characterization. God forbid that fiction reflect reality. But that’s what this is, fiction, not a documentary. Unfortunately, many people in today’s societiy form their opinions based on fiction. Which is why, though a piece of fiction, it is an irresponsible film.

please on February 24, 2012 at 8:48 pm

Yes, half way through the movie,and,I thought,no!,…this just can`t be happening, Then,…WHY? did they do this?, and am I going to be the only one who,is stunned.NO other,at least American movie has ever done this,never!I can`t wait to watch Bill Mahr, and see if he comments on this, how could HE miss{it}.I sat in the theatter,seething, until I could get to a computer.

Mr. Greenberg on February 24, 2012 at 8:51 pm

Holy crap! Who’d have thought– and actually follow through on it!– to portray the main Jihadi character in a movie as a Jew. Sure, sure it’s only a movie. So who’s contesting that?
Might the point to be taken away from such an aberration be the double shot of irony in the old joke: “What is an anti-Semite? Answer: Someone who hates Jews more than is absolutely necessary.”
My goodness, some creative folks just can’t help themselves.

lee, of the lower case "l" on February 24, 2012 at 9:02 pm

Cry me a river. I served with the SEALs and so they wrote in a bad guy as a Jew. Catholics have been written in as bad guys as well as Protistants. It was real SEALs using real weapons, real attics and using real Navy assets. It was also somewhat based on some of the types of missions that SEALs gave been on. Perhaps there might have been a Jewish bad guy along the way. I’m just sayin someone has to be the bad guy and today he was Jewish.

Micha on February 24, 2012 at 9:30 pm

    Micha, you will deserve to drown in that river you want us to cry you…and if there is any poetic justice, it will be a very hairy Mooooooooslim hand holding your stupid head down in that River.

    You have no idea what you’re talking about. You don’t even know the facts. It’s dopes like YOU that Little Al spoke so rightly about earlier.

    Go play patty-cake with Ben. The both of you together have less than a working brain for ONE dim-witted human.

    Again, to be a dumb contrarian only takes YOU being dumb (absent of ANY facts!) and you taking the opposite of our opinion. Fricken’ dope!

    Skunky on February 24, 2012 at 9:51 pm

    Micha: but the terrorists were Muslim. I wonder why the main villian couldn’t have been Muslim. Was it because Jews won’t attack SEAL bases while Muslims would? Is it because the pussies in the Pentagon and the Seals are afraid of Muslim violence for telling the truth? Or is it because they are like you—a pansy.

    Occam's Tool on February 26, 2012 at 10:27 pm

For those people who think that whatever is depicted in movies has no implications outside the movie, I offer you Arid Uka and his murder of two American servicemen in Germany after having watched a clip from Brian De Palma’s Redacted that he had thought was an actual event.

Bill on February 24, 2012 at 10:27 pm

Upon reading the multiple posts, there a few coclusions i have made regardng the show 24. Yes some of the seasons are rather left leaning (easons 5 and 7). However, some are more conservative than originally thought. For example (WITH SPOILERS):
1. Season 2: The jihadist group, Second Wave, is an evil despicable group whos ranks include a former liberal activist turned jihadist and a sadist who tortures women for his own entertainment. They answer to no one. Later, a European coalition and Democratic operatives attempt to manipulate the aftermath for their own agendas, but they are not leading the jihadists.
2. Season 4: Habib Marwan’s extremely organized and deadly Jihadist organization serves as the season’s primary villain. Marwan answers to no one and he is the ultimate mastermind who attacks America on multiple fronts using an extensive network of lethal assassins, thugs, and sleepers.
3. Season Six: The first half involves Jihadists who use such torture techniques as power drills and even nuke part of the Valley. It is in this season that there are a number of confusions. Some say that he takes orders from the Russian Terrorists who long for the days of the Soviet Union. However, they are merely partners,and the Jihadists almost eliminate the Russians when it appears they cannot carry their share of the load. The viewer discovers that the caucasian villains are only loosley connected to the Russian terrorists. The mastermind of the attacks is a politically connected Middle Eastern general. Other villains include the Communist Chinese who try to take advantage of the aftermath, but are not behind the attacks either. Finally, the Democrat President conistently thinks that he can negotiate with the Jihadists with disastrous consequences.
4. Season 8: Jihadists attack America because The United States is actualy on the verge of peace with a powerful Middle Eastern country. This enrages the Jihadists who enter into a secret alliance with snake like Russian government in order to cause death an destruction. The jihadists torture, kill people on video and download it on the net, use their families as cover in an apartment building, and even attempt to bomb a hospital and set off a dirty bomb in New York.

omarso on February 24, 2012 at 10:31 pm

Ah, Micha, it’s such a valid complaint to grasp. The lament isn’t that a bad guy character is written as a Jew. Generic Jew murderer in a movie? Fine. Generic Jew rapist in a movie? Why not. Generic Jew bank robber in a movie. Fair enough. But to portray the character in question as a Jew should at the least strike you as curious…for starters.
May your napping critical thinking skills awaken soon. Should they not, it be you needing to cry the river.

lee, of the lower case "l" on February 24, 2012 at 10:37 pm

Why is it that so many Jews will find an excuse to bitch about anything. Jesus Christ, get over yourselves, I’m sick of your crocodile tears.

“BECAUSE OF THE HOLOCAUST IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR ANY OF US TO EVER BE TERRORISTS OR BAD PEOPLE. WE ARE THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO HAVE EVER SUFFERED!!! THE BAD GUYS ARE ALL MUSLIMS, JUST WATCH THE NEWS NETWORKS WE OWN AND LISTEN TO THE INFORMATION WE FEED YOU, AND IF YOU DISAGREE WITH ANYTHING WE SAY YOU ARE A NAZI”

Fuck off. I’m so over this shit. I’ve never been a fan of stormfront or neonazis as I find them both to be disgusting and ignorant human beings, but when I read this kind of shit it starts to make me think they might be onto something.

Doesntmatter on February 24, 2012 at 11:04 pm

    Let me guess “Doesnmatter” you are African-American and you voted for Obama. To save you the time I am Jewish and I voted for Obama only because he was the lesser evil, and gave this country a momentous modicum of redemption for a major wrongdoing.
    Sorry, but your narrowly directed anger is laughably either “ghetto” or white southern bible belt. So now your pissed. Get over it.

    Ron Wolf aka "Calumbo" on February 25, 2012 at 12:11 pm

Mhhhhmmm….everything that could be said has been said,thank you Skunky,Debbs and every one else,I too thought it would be a good movie at first when Debbs mentioned it the other day,but I sure won t be watching it now that she gave us the whole scoop,Thanks Debbs.

Juan on February 24, 2012 at 11:15 pm

@ Doesntmatter – Suffice to say – you’re a moron!!!

Craig B on February 24, 2012 at 11:32 pm

I guess discussions like this are useful because they illustrate how widespread both antisemitism and stupidity are. Ever since the French Revolution, antisemitic hatred of rich Jews has been the province of both the right and the left. The evil Rothchilds were the embodiment of capitalism and attacked by antisemities of all political stripes. That antisemitism has not languished but is alive and well in this discussion.

But it is only a movie.

That stupid comment ignores content, and says that because of form, i.e. that something is a movie, content can be disregarded or ignored. So when is content important? A political speech? An article? A TV program? Remember how Hitler and Stalin used all types of propaganda, including, yes, movies.

And PC was flourishing in 1968. It was the height of the anti-Vietnam crazies demonstrating, riots in all the cities which had been going on for four years, burning down buildings on campus, non-negotiatle demands, the Black Panthers, so to say that high schools in the 1960s weren’t affected by PC is ridiculous.

Walt and Mearsheimer had their counterparts in the rabid anti-semitic professors in France and Germany throughout the 19th, 20th and now the 21st centuries.

Unfortunately for Gerald, the Left is well aware that Jews are a minority. That is why they are subject to so much disproportionate attack, both in their native countries and Israel. It is one reason Israel is so singled out, why so many prominent blacks have been anti-semitic for so many years — because they know they can get away with it. If they really thought Jews were a majority, they would be more cautious. But they know and sense that the elite doesn’t like Jews either. That most of the site would be happy to see Israel wiped off the map, and never wanted to see it founded in the first place.

And always the Jewish capitalists singled out, just like Harlem was supposedly anti-semitic because of the Jewish landlords, a canard bought by generations of fools.

And now this movie comes out right when there is an issue of whether Iran should be attacked by Israel (the US essentially supports and appeases Iran). The movie comes out right after the JCS visits Israel (our President won’t dirty himself on Jewish soil) to dissuade them from bombing Iran, and Netanyahu prepares for his visit here, and this propaganda screed is released to help buttress feeling, not against Iran, but against Israel.

And to think that so many nitwits can read this column day after day and can have learned nothing.

Little Al on February 24, 2012 at 11:42 pm

I haven’t seen the movie, so I’m going by reviews of people like Debbie in making my points here.

Is Debbie exagerating when she says the movie portrays “Jews as jihadists”? The movie portrays A JEW (singular) as a terrorist, but it’s possible the movie maker is trying to suggest that other Jews are doing it as well.

The motive for that is anti-Semitism and/or an attempt to minimize the fact that Islam is the real danger.

It’s also possible the producers were looking for “shock value” by having the terrorist mastermind be a Jew.

It’s rather baffling why a movie maker, who’s so interested in authenticity that they use real Navy Seals instead of actors, would then use such a far-fetched plot of a Jew being the mastermind behind a jihadist terrorist plot.

Remember, there are self-hating and/or radical leftist Jews who could conceivably join Islamic terrorists.

Scott on February 24, 2012 at 11:51 pm

    If they had to go along with portraying a Jewish character, it would have been accurate and true to life to have revealed him as a Far Leftist, Islamo-pandering Jewish anti-Semite working hand in glove with Muslims to destroy Israel and America – that kind of movie could have told us a powerful story about the dangerous Red-Green alliance.

    Debbie pointed out that is not what they did. They just portrayed Jews with a broad brush as hating America and trying to discredit the Religion Of Peace. They incited hatred against Jews, not to warn people about Jewish anti-Semites who work faithfully with the Muslim enemy.

    Its a major difference and that’s why Debbie felt it portrayed Jews in the worst possible light as a people. Its clear not all Jews are saintly, some Jews are avowed spear carriers for Islam and what happened was the movie promoted anti-Semitism – not to help to snuff it out.

    That is what ruined it.

    NormanF on February 25, 2012 at 11:29 pm

Debbie this is all so typical. No matter what the reality is, our military and security services are heavily influenced by Christian ideology in which Jews are the real and final enemy. I like that Christians tend to be pro-Israel, but it’s definitely a double edged sword when it comes to Jews. Debbie I set an empty space at my Shabbat table for you, just like the Yankees did for Thurman Munson, OBM.
