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) . . .


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


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 . . .


Watch the trailer . . .

And Gerald, many, many conservatives supported Israel from its inception, and supported Zionism prior to that. Sen. Taft is the leading example, but there were many others. Many Republican politicians supported Peter Bergson. The Dixiecrats were not representative of all Republicans.

And support of Israel by most Jews, even today, has its own dynamic, and although there is a small reactive part of it, the mainstream Jewish support of Israel arose during World War II, independently of the antisemitism of some reactionaries, and of many liberals (remember the land of Socialism opposed Zionism except for a very small number of years).

Read anything about the “The Raid On Entebbe” and the only story about their commander who died in the action. We have a lot to thank the IDF for in so many ways.

Old School.

Old School on February 25, 2012 at 12:35 am

I have a theory about why Russian Jews were picked to be the villains. In Israel, no group is as supportive of Jewish settlements in Judea & Samaria than Russian emigres, thereby putting them in the cross-hairs of Hollywood.

In the meantime, since Russia has been supportive of countries like Iran & Syria, Hollywood authors who have their grudge against Russian Jews can credibly pretend that the anti-Americanism within Russia can be extrapolated to Russian Jews. Never mind the fact that the reason Russian Jews left Russia for Israel or the US is that aside from a better life, they perceive that they’d not be persecuted in the newer Russia, and also, that they don’t share Russian support for Iran & Syria, and would much rather support Israel.

On Rush above, I used to be a subscriber to the Limbaugh letter for 2 years after 9/11. After the ouster of the Taliban, his total focus was back on the Democrats, and during the Pali intefada, he once had an interview w/ Bibi ‘Nothingyahu’. However, after that, seeing months pass w/ little coverage of the Jihad, and particularly after his support to the Dubai ports deal, I was beyond disgusted w/ him. When time came to renew my subscription, I just let it lapse. Someone from the magazine called me to ask, and I told her that the reason I did not renew my subscription was that he had ceased to cover topics that were important to this country – mainly Jihad terrorism. However, one substitute host of his that I did like was Roger Hedgecock, who called out the Jihadi terror like it is, such as his coverage of plots to contaminate San Diego’s water supply.

Michael Medved used to be a substitute host of Rush years ago – in the 90s, but after he moved to Seattle and his talk show went national, he’s never been Rush’s substitute. I always found him rather sophomoric, and his support for anything w/ an (R) after it wasn’t really that incisive. He had his disagreement w/ Rush in 2000 over whether McCain’s support against Bush was a Liberal conspiracy, as opposed to Liberals being genuinely attracted by his message. But in 2008, when Medved started aggressively pimping McCain as a Conservative, and spinning like an Iranian centrifuge over how McCain’s ‘Gang of 14’ sabotage of Senate moves to eliminate the super-majority of 60 requirement on judges, I had had enough. Same w/ his aggressive support of amnesty. Problem that during the commute home, I’d have the choice of tuning in to either him or Sean Vannity or a pretty rude Michael Savage. Yeah, I could turn the radio off, but it just felt abnormal.

But back to this movie – I think everyone knows that it would have been surprising had they shown actual Jihadis – either Saudi or Iranian – as being the masterminds behind the smuggling of Jihadis to the US.

Infidel on February 25, 2012 at 12:36 am

    Infidel, you are spot on about Medved and Rush. I used to love Medfraud but as I stated earlier, I have my own brain and know how to use it and even if someone super-smart is telling me hogwash I KNOW I am being zoomed.

    I have always liked Rush and never really listened daily until the week before Obama was elected and he came on like a hurricane nailing Obama and his Marxist plan and called it waaaaaay before anyone had the guts to. That’s how I came to be a daily listener.

    But you and Pats are spot on with your critiques. Right on the money!

    Savage’s rudeness doesn’t bug me as much as his narcissism. I get his podcast and do like to listen (he seems only to do two live hours now) but I get the jist with what you’re saying and Hedgecock is great every time I get to listen…which isn’t often but I should subscribe to his podcast.

    Skunky on February 25, 2012 at 10:00 am

      Skunky: good choice with Hedgecock. He never disappoints me.

      Burke on February 27, 2012 at 4:44 pm

Errata: Never mind the fact that the reason Russian Jews left Russia for Israel or the US is that aside from a better life, they perceive that they would not be persecuted in the newer Russia, and also, that they don’t share Russian support for Iran & Syria, and would much rather support Israel.

Infidel on February 25, 2012 at 1:21 am

I am a little disturbed about the complaints involving a Russian Jew Financier who happens to want to blow up lots of targets in the USA. My wife and I will watch the movie tomorrow simply because I am a former Special Forces Marine (Battalion RECON) who is curious to see how authentic this movie is in regards to tactics, command and control even logistics and intelligence. It is not so farfetched that a wealthy Russian Jew could finance such a dubious act. In this case I believe it is the Russian, who has always been a common enemy even after the fall of the Berlin wall. Most people who I know still feel and believe that Russia is still the enemy and will do what she can to bring down the USA. We won the cold war because we were able to bankrupt the Russian economy and that’s exactly what Putin would love to do to us as payback. Can anybody honestly tell me differently that we are not very cozy with the Russians? I would almost bet my pension that unfortunately there are Jews in Russia who can be devious enough by greed and power and even hatred towards the USA. Perhaps Mike “Mouse” McCoy and Scott Waugh the producers of Act of Valor could have used a bit more common sense by portraying the bad guy as a Chechnya warlord would have been much more appropriate and realistic. I do though in my heart don’t think that these guys meant for the movie to have some subliminal anti-Semitic message, just poor critical thinking skills. Look I know and am very acutely aware of the anti-Semitism that is rampant around the world and it sickens me to no end, but I am also aware that every little anti-jewish remark that is coined Zionists go nuts crying foul. Guess what folks I am a Jew. I come from a Jewish mom and dad and their parents were both Jews and their parents were Jews too, all down the line for as long as anybody can remember. My dad served in the Marines during Korea and I joined the Marines in 1981 and was medically retired in 1994. I will readily admit that there was anti-Semitism within the ranks. I have been around fellow Marines who had no idea I was Jewish and on occasion somebody would use off color (if you will)remarks about Jews and when I sounded off that I was a Jew most were truly embarrassed and some didn’t care. My skin is thick and I am not going to let some idle remark send me in a hissy fit. I have a bit more intestinal fortitude then most I guess. I will see the movie and I will make an informed decision regarding the anti-Semitic question. In closing I am glad to see that most here are familiar with the battle that many Jews must endure almost on an everyday basis with uninformed small brained igits who regardless of what the truth is, even if it’s at the tip of their nose, they still won’t get it and blame the Jews for all of the woes of the world. Stay Safe America, the United States Marines are guarding every Clime and Place.

    First let us thank Debbie for a well written expose of what appears on the face of it to be a minor travesty of justice. Hollywood, notorious for “suprises” and convoluted plot developement unfortunately will take advantage of the international situation to sell tickets. “Kapos” and “Quislings” including the plain ignorant in the allegedly Jewish controlled film industry are looking at the growing sector of the international market that cheers when Jews, or Israel is tarnished.
    While the current wave of anti-semitism is more sophisticated and subtle, the myths and cliches about Jews distilled first by the Nazis for modern “Christian” consumption, are now in the toolbox of genocidal jihadists and their “peaceful” Muslim supporters..
    The old canard comes to mind again about the Arab, the camel and the sandstorm, one of many tales of what results when you first leave a door open.
    American Jews are notoriously self deprecating, often comedically airing our human frailties like dirty laundry in an attempt to show the rest of the world that we like them are humans who also bleed, cry and suffer
    Anti-semititism never sleeps and today it is fully awake. It is still the largest root of prejudice in a world obcessed with the new genocide “ethnic cleansing”. Why should we help the enemy water this weed in our garden? Thank you Rick for your insight, service, and example.

    Ron Wolf on February 25, 2012 at 10:34 am

      Ron please allow me to thank you for your well balanced analysis regarding two sides of the issue. I am grateful that there are some decent people who don’t need to exaggerate a point and use scandalous replies simply because they don’t agree with statement on a subject that they undoubtedly lack intelligence on.

      I think we both know who I am referring to (Well Lookie here a well-placed paragraph). Sometimes when I am responding to a blog using my Samsung Captivate I intentionally don’t use paragraphs. I’m not here to win spelling or grammar contests. Quite honestly the lowest grade I ever received in writing was a B- and that’s because I am not a huge fan of Shakespeare.

      After serving nearly 13 years of service in the Marine Corps, I decided to go back to school and earned a four degree in Computer Information Systems. My GPA was 3.8 and I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Detroit Mercy.

      I like to believe that I have decent insight and a fair logical way of thinking. I saw the movie last night and I enjoyed it (I always enjoy when the Americans are the good guys). I did not think in the slightest that the movie was anti-Semitic. The CPO simply could not understand why a Russian Jew would finance acts of terror. When Christo was being interrogated by the CPO after the SEALS took command of his yacht, there was only one question. “Why would a Jew finance a Muslim terrorist?” His answer was not in any way anti-Jew, anti-Zionist or anti-Semitic. Christo’s answer was simple. “Because he is my childhood friend.” Nuff said!

      The theater was packed and there was a lot of cheering and clapping that went along with some of the best scenes of the movie. What was not present from the audience was any derogatory comments about Jews. In fact I don’t even think that one soul even cared if Christo was a Jew. I think most people can distinguish between make believe and real life.

      On that note I will end by saying the self-made in his own mind superiority of dipshit Occam’s Tool is as relevant to me as a steamy pile of crap. Oh my goodness he went to TCU and that makes him the world’s smartest asshole…Again in his own mind. The best he can do is criticize my blog because it lacked paragraphs. For the record, I don’t write or respond to blogs as if I were taking a writing final and the only reason why I used paragraphs to respond to your fair and kind blog was to show Mr. Tool that I can use my Tool to make him look more foolish then what he already is. Thank you for acknowledging my service. It was my distinct pleasure to serve my country even for the likes of Occam’s Tool.

      Rick on February 27, 2012 at 12:04 am

    The problem with some Jewish folk is they act like they were the only one shafted by History and that we needed special rules to protect them. NOT>
    We are all the same and all different. Massacres, slaughter and any other evil is wrong but no one is more deserving of protection more than any other group..

    Not Christians, Now jews, not the rwandans, not the Arabs.
    But at this time it is all the Jews and Catholics and Christians that are portrayed as the Evil.

    My father was raised by a wonderful Jewish guy, but he always told him there were Jews and then there were the Goyem.
    Not sure if I spelled it right but you get my point.

    WE do not have to like each other to think in our and each other’s best Interests. If we don’t we will all end up dead or slaves.

    Same Old story either we hang together or hang separately.
    But we will surely HANG!

    Yes this is definitely the wrong bad guy at this time in History, especially the The Muslim Brotherhood in charge at the white house.

    K Kehoe on February 25, 2012 at 2:28 pm

    Dear Rick:

    Jews know how to use paragraphs.

    The point here is that the Muslims were poor scared little pawns of the EVIL MASTERMIND JEW! HOWEVER, IN REALITY, The real fact of the matter is that the terrorist plots involve Muslims, NOT Jews. I have to explain this to you in words this simple and blatant because obviously your Marine service included some major head trauma, which is why you write like a goyische kopf.

    I went to TCU, idiot. I am aware of the difference between a trifle and a knee to the groin. This is a knee to the groin, moron.

    It should be pointed out that I once turned down a job offer at Fort Hood; I would have been working with Nidal Hassan (unknowingly). Military PC Brass and Military Jews like you who kiss jihadi dick are the major reasons Jews like me worry about our safety.

    Occam's Tool on February 25, 2012 at 6:14 pm

      First off OCCUM YOU DON’T KNOW ME!!!! How dare you assume (Ass out of You and Me) that I am an Israel hater. To even insinuate that I have gotten any of my “colleagues” killed is a serious and despicable lie. Only a Moron (A term of endearment you so recklessly used as an insult) who lacks any commonsense. First of all Marines are not colleagues, Marines are Brothers and Sisters. You obviously lack any knowledge of Marine Corps camaraderie that is the strongest link that makes up the very values that the Corps holds close to its heart.

      That paragraph is for you Pukkem. I have always noticed that men who find fault with spelling or grammar on the internet with fellow bloggers more often than not lack penis skills and usually don’t know how to please their partner. I bet you have silent partners Occum….Shame shame. I am not here to win any writing contests and your anal (You must be a little bottom boy) thinking is a bit concerning to me, but since I don’t give a rats behind about you, well I don’t care what you think. Let me ask you something all mighty one, what indication did I give you that you assume (there’s that nasty little word again that makes you look like an ass) I am an Israel hater? Is it because I don’t follow your liberal ideology? There was not one word or sentence I used that would give anybody (except obviously you) the idea that I don’t support Israel. Well let me put you in your place again Occum, Benjamin Netanyahu is one of my all-time Israeli heroes. Golda Meir is my first. I have ALWAYS supported Israel unlike the liberal self-hating Kappos. You remind me of one of those traitors. I support Israel in any way that I possibly can and I am proud to say that my Jewish roots are very important to me. I let my mom and dad read your reply to me and without a word I could see them shaking their head in that way when you’re reading something from a crazy person. They read my post too and my folks are very candid and never hold back when speaking their minds regardless of family or not. My dad, the old Marine Corps salt that he is had some really good choice words that would have even made Chesty Puller blush a bit. I wonder what you have done for your country lately Occum? Besides letting your bleeding heart dicktate (yes I meant to spell it like that duh) your sensibility. When I joined the Marines in 1981, I joined on the sole reason of the Iranian hostage debacle under Jimmy “Limp Dick” Carter. I wanted to join the very best, the toughest to get the job done. My biggest hero in my life is my father. Even before I decided to join the Marines I admired how smart and creative my dad has always been. We were never the stereotypical Jewish family. Oh we were and still are extremely proud of our Jewish culture, heritage and religious following. On the other hand we are blue-collar, grew up on a ranch deep in the valley of L.A. My dad taught me how to use just about every tool that’s made. After my dad served in Korea (Inchon, Seoul and Chosin Reservoir) he worked for Lockheed and then Otis Elevator as an adjuster. He suffered a heart attack in 1972 and the doctor said leave the hustle of L.A. or die. The next year we moved to South Lake Tahoe where my mom and dad decided to open a restaurant, a business they have never been in or had any knowledge of. My dad designed and built the restaurant and after three very long years the Dory’s Oar took off and became one of the most famous food establishments in around the Tahoe area. The Dory’s Oar even became famous around the world. It was successful because my parents are creative and always made you feel at home and the food was incredible. Famous people from all types of entertainment, sports and music loved our place because we treated them like regular folks and always kept their dining experience private and without distraction. I have been so lucky to have parents and siblings that were close and loving. Fair, Firm and Consistent was the household mantra. So please tell me Occum where in any part of my opinion did you seem to get the idea that I am some sort of deranged, uninformed enemy of the state? The main idea of my original post was simply not to judge the cover of the book before it was read. What is so anti-Israel about that? I am a proud infidel. I have killed men of faith for country not for fun. I firmly believe that you are a LIAR Occum. I doubt if you ever served your country. I doubt that you ever had a “job offer” at Fort Hood Texas. I think you are a dangerous person based on the way you have been outspoken or threatened by me for whatever reason. In your last sentence OCCUM you accused me of “kissing jihadi dick,” well had a real good laugh at that one. Let me set the record straight dipshit. How many jihadists have you sent to allah? Zero? That’s what I thought. You are a wannabe OCCUM. Couldn’t pass the the first stage of MEPS? Is that why you are so afraid of me? Do I intimidate you OCCUM? Is it because you stayed on your mother’s teat until the age of 6? Are you still wetting the bed from you being so scared of me? You should be afraid of me OCCUM. You should be very afraid because when the sheet hits the fan and chaos and anarchy becomes the law of the land you won’t see me, you won’t hear me or even smell me. I am a RECON Marine and it is not so difficult to find the enemies. It’s unfortunate that you put me in this predicament, but you started this feud. I am not nearly an old man and regardless of my medical retirement I take my life work very seriously. I have no one to report to and have unlimited disposable income. I want to make it perfectly CLEAR that I am not in any way threatening your life, but I promise to prove to you that my IQ is just a bit more than the temperature of your freezer and that there are many many other ways to disrupt your life without breaking the law, but let me again be perfectly clear if the shit hits the fan I know I am much smarter than any adversary I come into contact with. You started this OCCUM and in time I will end it. As I told Ron, I am not here to prove anything to anybody. I am not into petty insults regarding writing skills or whatever. This is a blog not a creative writing test. You didn’t have to read my opinion and then vomit insults because for some reason you fear me and my type of fellow Jews. I belong to a conservative Jewish website, and a pro Jewish 2nd amendment site. On a personal note OCCUM I graduated Magna Cum Laude and have been awarded several medals and commendations, meritorious masts and a slew of other awards indicating my faithful service and professional conduct as a United States Marine. I am sure you have a gold star and smiley face from your 3rd grade elementary teacher. Way to go OCCUM you da man!!!

      Rick on February 27, 2012 at 2:34 am

        For crying out loud, do you know what a PARAGRAPH is, Rick???????

        And it’s OCCAM no U!!!

      Dear Brian: The “now-so-called Palestinians.” During the Mandatory Period, hundreds of thousands of JEWS were “Palestinians.” As late as the 1970s, the “Palestinians” were referred to as what they were and are, ARABS.

      Miranda Rose Smith on February 26, 2012 at 6:59 am

    Rick-I served in the USMC,US Air Force,and I was in the Border Patrol.I was never bothered by lightweight “Jew”jokes,but an intersting thing occured once in the Border patrol when I was a post-Academy trainee in the field.A “journeyman”agent was busting my balls with some sphomoric “Jew”jokes-nothing really vile,mind you.He was equally miserable to everyone and was a certified A-hole
    One day he comes over to me and asks if I was offended by any of the ” Jew”stuff because the shift supervisor had chewed him out and threatened to write him up for a disciplinary action if he ever heard him make another “Jew”remark to me.I replied that I wasn’t a whining rat and if I were REALLY offended,he’d find out when I went upside his head as I’d done on four or five occasions in the military service.In any event it stopped.
    The supervisor figured as a trainee I wouldn’t say anything so I thanked him and explained it was all settled-this supervisor was a Tennessee
    “redneck”(he was proud of that label)and a decent guy who was a pleasure to work for.He passed away too soon from cancer.
    In the military,I just didn’t take it at all-if someone said something to me I belted them.They didn’t have to like me,but I wasn’t taking it and they had to know that.

    Joe on February 26, 2012 at 1:10 pm

      You would be surprised how many philosemite “rednecks” there are, and how many antisemitic Liberals. I LOVED Alabama, and love my relatives there, all of whom live in rural Alabama. Couldn’t ask for a nicer group of in-laws. Peaches.

      And Cancer tends to take the nice people.

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

    “It is not so farfetched that a wealthy Russian Jew could finance such a dubious act”.
    It is extremely farfetched. And I believe the makers of this film are indeed antisemites. And the fact that you make the comment, ” but I am also aware that every little anti-jewish remark that is coined Zionists go nuts crying foul” reveals you to be equally so despite your fraudulent claim to being Jewish. Antisemites frequently use the term Zionist to attempt to cover up their antisemitism.

    Laura on February 27, 2012 at 6:08 pm

    This attitude seems to be pervasive in the military. While muslims kill our soldiers, Israeli technology is saving our soldiers. Yet the military hates Jews and caters to muslims.

    Laura on February 27, 2012 at 6:39 pm

    Where should I start? First of all, I don’t like that “Russian Jew” name. Does it mean the Jew born on the territory of the former Russian Empire? My family is from Ukraine, we all speak Russian and I was born in Uzbekistan where my family was evacuated during WWII. Who am I? Uzbeki Jew? Ukranian Jew? Russian? Is it geography in play? Why not to stuck to Ashkenazi Jew (or Bukaran Jew, etc.) which makes more sense. I don’t see any visual difference between Ashkenazi Jews of Central and Eastern Europe, as well as Western Europe.
    The term “Soviet Jew” makes more sense to me. Those who were born in the Evil Empire and dealt with “the etnicity problem”, sharpening the survival skills.
    Now, Rick. You do know that majority of the Soviet Jews repatriated or immigrated and live now in Israel, USA, Europe, Australia, etc. Including some well known billionaries. Those who still live there we can divide into 2 groups: those who are affraid or too old to start a new life in the new country and those who are very successful (show business, especuially). They face a new huge wave of the old fashioned Jew-hatred, mostly from Slavs. The billinaire who did not leave is in prison (Khodorkovsky), another in London (Berezovsky), and a few in Israel (Gusinsky). All anti-Putin. None of them were convicted in any terrorist activities. No Jew was. The terror in Russia is in the Islamic extremist’ hands. (The Putin’s regime is a different issue.) So based on everything that has happened to the Soviet Jews, what base in reality the filmmakers had to create such a villain? Maybe they heard human scam B. Clinton blaming the “Russian Jews” for no peace with so-called Palestinians? Or they got money from Saudi Arabia? Or Russian financing? Or Obama is the President and now is the best time to show their real color?

    Thank you.

    Beenthere on February 27, 2012 at 8:10 pm

Debbie thanks for the info.

Notice how the so-called pro-Israel conservative crowd has nothing to say about this, silence is deafening.

Debbie it’s important to recognize that for all the lip service paid to being supportive of Israel, there has always been and still is a strong and pervasive streak of Jew-hatred among conservatives in the US (and I’m not even talking the Buchanan and Ron Paul Jew-hate fan base, I mean beyond that). Remember outside of the US and Canada conservatives as a whole are run through with Jew-hatred (look at the UK).

There is this mentality of ‘Muslim fanatics are the enemy’ (well true enough), but then they add to that, the Jew banker/financier who is the wellspring of all evil. That is a trope that is as pervasive as it is deep-rooted, so it makes a perverse sense to blame the Muslim jihad on the greedy Jew, since to them the Jew is the devil and he manipulates things from behind the scenes, motivated by his insatiable greed. This is where the Jew-hatred of the Left comes from really – the greedy Jew with his lust for gold and power. It is also pervasive among many (not all of course, excepted many commentators here) conservatives, it is a trope that runs so deep that they are simply oblivious to it.

This is why you can’t put your trust in establishment conservatism (and for that matter the Republican Party), the American and Canadian conservatives who genuinely support Israel are not establishment types, but very much in the wilderness and on the margins. It’s no accident that they gave us the superdhimmi George Bush Jr.

Larry in Tel Aviv on February 25, 2012 at 2:29 am

    Thanks for teaching me a new word (trope). That the noun Jew is increasingly being used throughout the world as a verb is nothing new. Conservatives are presently a mixed lot that does include the cancer of old school anti-semitism, but they do not have a monopoly on the Jew hatred propageted over the internet by thousands of would be Goeblels and viewed by many who have never met a Jew in their life.
    Israel has always been a too easy target for anti-semites of all political persuasions, this I do not have to tell you.
    If we all committed suicide tomorrow it would make them happy for only one day. The world always required a scapegoat. Good reply by the way.

    Ron Wolf on February 25, 2012 at 11:07 am

Using Philipino Muslims is also a cheap shot. The real bad ones are Muslims from the Middle East and Pakistan. If they are shown as the bad guys…all hell will break loose. But the Philipino Muslims don’t have many defenders….so they are used as cannon fodders. Effing bastards….and this too on Purim?

Rex on February 25, 2012 at 3:40 am

Another reason not to see it.

I wasn’t going because it ticked me off that the SEALS were being used for entertainment. We don’t need to know how they operate, what they do, how they do it and who they are.

And is anyone else bothered that these operators are making movies while we’re at war, instead of killing hadjis?

Great priorities…

Not to mention it is a dumb recruitment film. Wonder how many impressionable kids will watch this and enlist in the Navy to be commando bad asses. Most all of them will end up scraping paint with a wire brush for 4 years.

Wait till the Seal Team 6 movie about Bin Laden takedown comes out. Heard the Big Earred Punk is working with Sony/Kathryn Bigelow to have it released during the election with the actual team members in it.

Crap makes me sick!!!

Chris on February 25, 2012 at 3:45 am

Rick, I think you are conflating the Soviet Union and Russia. After the fall of the Soviet Union, Russian foreign policy saw the replacement of a Communism-pushing policy to a purely mercenary one.

The reason Russia supports Iran & Syria is that those countries are more likely and willing to bribe them, as opposed to Israel. Also, all Eastern Orthodox Churches, w/ the possible exception of the Serbian, tend to be Judeophobic, and as a result, the Russian population at large tends to have their residual Judeophobia, which was there in both Tsarist and Soviet times, so just 20 years of democracy ain’t gonna wash that out.

While it’s possible that a Russian could do this – particularly one tied to either the Communists or United Russia, it’s much less likely that a Russian Jew would. Besides, in real life, the people most interested in doing this is al Qaeda, and so it’s most likely to be people from Saudi Arabia, Egypt or Pakistan. I disagree somewhat w/ Rex that Filipino Muslims are even comparitively benign – Abu Sayyaf is a big enough headache in Mindanao, and has even done some beheadings. But Muslims are very particular about who leads them, and Arabs would invariably be high on that totem pole, followed by Pakis, whose sole identity is Islamic (or they’d have been no more separate from India than North Korea is from South Korea).

Anyway, I agree w/ the calls here to boycott this movie.

Infidel on February 25, 2012 at 5:25 am

OMG! I was really looking forward to seeing this movie, since a member of my family is a Navy SEAL. Now it’s ruined. BTW, I asked him his opinion about it (he hasn’t seen it) and his reaction was he’d prefer that SEALs just stay in the shadows. Hey directors, the authors of the Protocols called, they want their plot line back.

Sean M on February 25, 2012 at 8:10 am

The intor “It’s official”? Why, beacuse YOU said so, Debbie? Bahahaha! Liberalism never ceases to amaze me! I saw the movie last night! It is GREAT! Should religion not have been mentioned in the movie? Would it have been okay in your bias if the particular charcter had been portrayed as Christian? Count on it! Do you actually think that evil is only isolated to a particular religion, country, or political belief system? ASININE! There are many evil Jews just as there are evil people of all or no religions. The movie is in no way, shape, form, or fashion anti-semitic. RIDICULOUS ARTICLE!

N: Moron, you clearly don’t read my work because I always object when Christians are portrayed this way in the movies. I have over 2,000 movie reviews to prove it. RIF–Reading Is Fundamental. But nice try, liar.Here’s a tip: Jews have NEVER been the terrorists against America. THEY. ARE. MUSLIMS. Get a frickin’ clue. BTW, does Timmerman Equipment know you use their e-mail address to post anti-Semitic garbage? They will soon enough. DS

NHM0311 on February 25, 2012 at 9:56 am

    Which side are you on? Re:”There are MANY evil Jews just as….” You mean evil Jews are more in number than the other evil people? Just what we need another politically confused apologist.

    Ron Wolf on February 25, 2012 at 11:37 am

    Funny thing, dumbass—the 9/11 bombers were Muslims, the Cole bombers were Muslims, the Iranian nuclear scientists are Muslims, the honor killers of teenage girls are Muslims, the beheaders of 14 month old girls are Muslims, the….

    Yeah, there are evil Jews in the world, but this plot would have been bankrolled and put into action by Muslims, not Jews. But if you mention the evil of Islam, you get slammed, and our cowardly Navy Brass in the Obama administration wouldn’t touch it with a ten foot pole.

    Anybody with an IQ above room temperature (and I include Rick, the brain damaged Jew above as one whose IQ doesn’t meet the lofty heights of my Freezer’s interior temperature) knows who the bad guys are here. They aren’t the Russian Mafia, or Russian Jews. They are the Saudis, the Qataris, the Kuwaitis, the Iranians, and the Pakistanis who “pull the strings” on this crap.

    Grow a pair, asshole.

    Occam's Tool on February 25, 2012 at 6:23 pm

    There ARE evil far leftist Jews who side with Israel’s and America’s enemies. But to say that ALL Jews hate America and kill CIA agents and smuggle terrorists into this country – that is a bald-faced lie and a blood libel. The authors of this movie weren’t bringing up religion (a particular religion for record in a way they would never do with Islam) for the entertainment value; they brought it up to blacken the good name of the Jewish people. No one would tolerate that kind of crap being disseminated about other people but Jews are fair game. That exactly why Debbie was sickened by this crude appeal to this vilest of human prejudice and its no different when Hollywood does the same thing to Christians. NO mainstream Jew has EVER been a terrorist, killed Americans or put Judaism off-limits for any kind of critical treatment on the silver screen.

    All of that is true about Islam and unlike Jews to whom an outrageous affront has been done, our federal government is apologizing to Muslims left and right. Apparently its OK to hate people who have loyally served America and protected it and contributed to its freedom and well-being but its verboten to even hint at criticizing those who betray it, murder Americans and what to take away our freedoms from the rest of us – which is what the Muslim World will never cease to do America as long as it exists. Hollywood has no problem with defaming Jews but the people who really murder Americans as they recently did in Afghanistan, its not allowed to portray them in a negative light.

    You don’t really get it and every Jew in the world correctly thinks this movie has a clear message. And while there is certainly plenty of latitude for artistic creativity in our society, we have to have zero tolerance for Jew-baiting. And if you can’t understand that freedom is not a license to hate others, then you don’t really believe in the American Creed. I’d have liked this movie to have reflected it and it did a disservice to everything our country stands for. Taking a clear stand to reject this movie’s message about Jews is truly standing up for the Truth, Justice and the American Way. Its about time someone said “no” to bigotry and hatred and as a movie critic, human being, Jew and American citizen, Debbie made it clear she won’t put up with it. Now its up to the rest of us to follow suit!

    NormanF on February 26, 2012 at 3:38 am

      “And if you can’t understand that freedom is not a license to hate others, then you don’t really believe in the American Creed.”

      Nope, that isn´t the american creed, that is the liberal, PC creed. A creed used to justifie the destruction of freedoom of speech.

      Have this destruction of freedooms lead to more tolerance, less bigotery? Ha! This movie should be a good clue as to where things are going but apparently, it isn´t. Intolerance, prejudice and bigotery rises ever faster.

      You aren´t following that creed either, by disagreeing with the “educated” PC consensus that Islam is a religion of peace, you “h8 on others” too.

      A really idiotic creed to boot too. Do you really think that hatred against others is wrong by principle? should Debbie quite using Goebbels to rate films, since it would be hate on others? Should the parents of childrens tortured and butchered by a bunch of pedophile psychopaths not hate the “other”?

      Even if you did, do remember it wasn´t czarists and capitalists that Stalin´s purges removed.

      Jaws on February 29, 2012 at 2:02 pm

    Timothy McVeigh?? Hmmm, pretty sure he wasnt Muslim.

    Level Headed on February 27, 2012 at 11:59 am

I just saw the movie and was amazed about how bad ass how Navy SEALs are. Regardless of what you thought of the plot and its perceived anti-Russian bias, it is a show of support for our Country and Forces to see this movie. Long Live the USA and to hell with the rest. Has anyone taken a second and thought maybe our intelligence services and armed forces know something about the Russians we don’t. Just saying. I am happy I saw this movie and am not concerned about any Russians or Phillipino’s offended.


George A. on February 25, 2012 at 11:52 am


    I guess no Jews were harmed in the making of the movie.

    Cruelty to animals would be a reason not to watch it but cruelty to Jews? Its just a minor cinematic detail.

    If Jews were animals, PETA would be protesting. But they’re people and are not politically correct – and hey, what they heck, its just a movie.

    I don’t buy it. Ideas matter and cultural poison is still cultural poison. I don’t care if its all wrapped up in a pretty package with a magnificent bow on the top.

    What I would like to get across is that anti-Semitism is not a Jewish problem. Its every one’s problem.

    That’s why people, no matter what walk of life they come from, shouldn’t be seeing this movie.

    NormanF on February 26, 2012 at 3:56 am

    George: Reading is Fundamental. The Russians ARE in bed with the Arabs.

    Jews, however, are not. Having the main villian be a JEW in a movie about TERRORISM is bullshit. Debbie doesn’t care about the Russian nature of the baddie, but the JEWISH nature, which is non-sensical and representative of the Obama administration’s non-sensical attitude towards Jews.

    Occam's Tool on February 26, 2012 at 10:14 pm

“PFFFSSTTT!!!” (spits coffee all over keyboard) ROTFLMFAO “Osama Bin Cohen and Khalid Sheikh Horowitz!!!”

Too bad. I was looking forward to checking this movie out, now I’d be laughing too hard throughout it. DS, ya saved me $20 – $30. Thanks!

GC on February 25, 2012 at 12:18 pm

I just want to re-post a very pithy sentence initially written by Little Al. He nailed it 100%!

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

He is so right. And think about drooling dopes like George A-hole (*ALWAYS* the know-nothing dopey contrarian on here) and the impervious and empty brain cavity of NHM0311 who may not agree with us but also DO come here and read everyday.

It’s really not so hard to connect the dots. If you’re not paying attention to the menace of Islamic Jihad in 2012, there is NO HOPE FOR YOU. Those with a brain have been paying attention and know about the sh**-disturber Moooooslims and who is in their crosshairs. DS writes about it EVERY. DAY.

There is no excuse for you morons who can’t follow DS’ trajectory. She wouldn’t waste a post on this if it was NOT significant because guess what…there are 99 other stories to tell DAILY on Islamic Jihad!

It really wasn’t that ok that so many of us knew NOTHING of Islamic Jihad on September 10th, 2001 and it really wasn’t ok that those same people, once awoken by September 11th, 2001 really thought that USAs plan to take on the “War On Terror” by nation building and importing Western Democracy into those Islamic hell-holes was a good move (I think we have been handed our arse and now see the light on those two things that those who actually UNDERSTOOD Islamic Jihad KNEW!!!) BUT it is absolute retardedness and folly and utter stupidity to think in February 2012 that DS’ point is NOT valid.

You’re part of the problem. You’re holding us back. You are the stupid kind and should be institutionalized for such utter stupidity.

And also, as I previously stated…they couldn’t get the money from Hollywood so they got the money another way. WHY, then, did they set up a not-so-credible bad guy when in our everyday life that bad guy in the scenario depicted is ALWAYS Islamic Jihadis??????

Skunky on February 25, 2012 at 12:26 pm

Hey NHM, you haven’t been on this blog long enough have you? DS is not just a commentator, pundit, blogger, and attorney, she’s also a “movie critic” and works for the “Detroit Films Critic Society” (correct me if I’m wrong with the title’s name), so she KNOWS what she’s talking about buster.

And I’ve read you’re few messages and you’re positions are moronic and idiotic my friend. If you want to counter what Debbie wrote in this article, apply for a job position for a film critics company, start you’re own blog or website and try to refute and counter what the messenger said in this article or any of her film critic article she’s written in the past!

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

Sean R. on February 25, 2012 at 1:24 pm

Regarding Conservatives and Jew-hatred:

The only Conservatives in America that hate Jews are the Paleo-Conservatives. Google up Tiki Magazine. All other Conservatives – NeoCons, Mainstream-Cons, EconomicCons, GoldwaterCons, do not demonstrate Jew-hatred. Just the PaleoCons who are the worst of the Conservatives (although as Conservatives they do get some things right).

Jack on February 25, 2012 at 1:43 pm

    Minor corection, sir—“Taki” magazine. Taki Theodopolous, a Greek who wished he had been with the Werhmacht. A certified asshole through and through, like Pat Buchanan.

    Occam's Tool on February 25, 2012 at 8:14 pm

      Pat Buchanan’s fans think the real problem is Hitler didn’t win World War II. That’s why paleo-conservatives today are on the same side as the Far Left in shilling for Islam. Which incidentally is why they are traffic on every Jew and Israel hating site on the planet. The isolationists’ antipathy to Jews has not changed. The only thing that has changed with them is the nature of the enemy they do not want America to fight.

      NormanF on February 26, 2012 at 4:38 am

Has anyone considered that the villain in this movie is a mock potrayal of George Soros, a real life billionaire Jewish activist who is known for his betrayal during WWII of his own people and his colloborations with America’s enemies. I feel this article was a knee- jerk reaction to the movie. I will still watch it and determine for myself.

D: I knew when I wrote this review that I would receive responses from morons like David who would make idiotic excuses like this, engage in blatant apologism for anti-Semitism, and cite George Soros. Get a clue, idiot. When did George Soros kill a CIA agent? When did he kidnap and torture a CIA agent? When did he ever finance a major terrorist plot against America? When did Soros smuggler homicide bombers into the U.S. to blow themselves and others up? NEVER to all of these. And you know that, but yet you call me “knee-jerk” when you didn’t even see the movie. Why? Because you’re a dumbass and will defend anti-Semitism wherever you see it. You won’t “determine” anything, b/c you aren’t smart enough to do that . .. and too much of an apologist for Jew-hatred. Here’s another tip: Soros himself says he is not a Jew. But, again, a clueless moron like you wouldn’t know that. Or care. DS

David on February 25, 2012 at 3:44 pm

    Wrong. Soros does not consider himself to be a Jew. Far Leftist who were born from Jewish parents nearly always consider themselves to be athiests (if they have not converted to another religion). And, as a far Leftist, Soros is, of course, anti-Zionist and anti-Israel. Now some always try to argue that an individual who is anti-Zionist and anti-Israel is not necessarily anti-Jewish. But those arguments always fail. Because there is no real distinction. And it is a reality that anti-Zionists and anti-Israel proponents ALWAYS side with the enemies of Jews. That ends those arguments. Are we getting it yet? I suspect not, in your case, as you seem to have little understanding of the ways of the world, history, psychology, and current events.

    Ralph Adamo on February 25, 2012 at 7:53 pm

      Good point! Its debatable whether Far Leftist Jews should be still be considered Jews at all. A number of them have actually converted to Islam. Ironically enough, using them to make the point Jews are treacherous and disloyal actually proves the opposite of what anti-Semites and Israel haters claim. The number of Jews of a Far Leftist and anti-Semitic stripe who are danger to the Free World probably number a few thousand. The number of Muslims who constitute a danger to it are a few billion. And when you consider the math, Jewish anti-Semites certainly pose something of a nuisance but they are never going to kill any one. They can only enable Islam and only Islam can kill large numbers of people. Let’s not lose sight of the real enemy. All that Jewish anti-Semites will ever be are their fellow travelers.

      NormanF on February 26, 2012 at 4:08 am

    Soros was Hungarian, not Russian. He’s an asshole, but the point here is that the makers of this supposedly uberpatriotic film were too much of a group of PUSSIES and WIMPS and DICKWITS to call the true enemy by his proper name, because they were scared of being called “Islamophobic.” That’s because their ballsacks are filled with helium.

    Occam's Tool on February 25, 2012 at 8:18 pm

I dont understand why active duty special forces were allowed to be in a Hollywood production. it makes no sense to me ,but then I was just a Sargeant in the Marine Corps not an officer. Special Forces Recon,Green Beret and Seal tactics are meant to be fairly confidential,definately not meant to be seen by Americas enemies.I have not been happy with the way the military has been run since Clinton. However rest assured that all members of the armed forces know who the enemy is and it is not the Jews!

We’re told one thing for sure: Islamic terrorism is created by Jewish masterminds.

That explains why they’re so obsessed with the Jews and Israel!

The only question is why we haven’t heard all this before?

If the Jews actually rule he world, they appear to have a hard time keeping their secrets!

Just don’t expect the Anti-Semites who wrote the “Act Of Valor” script to have spilled all the beans! Like with any good conspiracy theory, there are more chapters to be mined.

We just have to hope this movie bombs at the box office!

NormanF on February 25, 2012 at 10:40 pm

A little off subject, but if you are thinking of giving money to a university, of course check the amount of anti-semitism on campus and how or whether the university is challenging it.

But also check the university’s radio station, if applicable, and the extent to which anti-semitism pervades the programming.

Little Al on February 26, 2012 at 8:26 am

    My alma mater, TCU, has a Muslim in its Department of Religion who preaches the usual crap—not one thin dime from me.

    Baylor’s Center for Jewish studies is run by a pro-Palestinian self hating dhimmi.

    Occam's Tool on February 26, 2012 at 10:17 pm

My dad, who is a retired officer from the Army, told me at lunch he won’t go see it because he thinks the Obama administration forced the SEALS to do this movie. I agreed and and because I will take the critique of this movie about it being anti- Semitic by Debbie Schlussel, I will not go see it. And I’m in agreement with the article now. But mostly because I trust my dad who has been a political prisoner under Fidel Castro and knows what being persecuted for his beliefs is like. Shalom.

David on February 26, 2012 at 1:28 pm

Thanks for saving me the price of the ticket. I won’t bother with this one.
As for the Jewish mastermind, this was probably the result of a bad screenwriter looking for a unpredictable plot twist that he/she though the audience would never guess.
What a disappointment to use real SEALs for authenticity and then ruin it with an unrealistic, juvenile and antisemitic plot device. It also saddens me that some crazy false-flag conspiracy nuts surrounding 9/11 might actually believe this crap.

fred on February 26, 2012 at 3:21 pm

holy crap it’s just a movie. why does everything have to be PC. why can’t a movie come out and people just enjoy? WHO CARES what someones race is in a fictional story. or are jews still untouchable, if so they join the rest of the whiney kids that don’t like anything being said about their race. who cares.

josh on February 26, 2012 at 4:16 pm

    No Josh you got it all backawards buster, in this country and worldwide jews are NOT “untouchable” as you claim, the only ones today who are “untouchable” or “sacred-cows” is islam and muslims, NOT jews, christians, etc.!

    Let me ask you a question Josh, if this film did it correctly and portray muslims as the terrorist (majority of terrorist happen to be muslims, at the sametime, not all muslim folks are terrorist) would you have come over here and call the film “Islamophobic” and made every excuse for muslims and islam like a useful-idiot?

Rush Limbaugh had a whole discussion on an hypothetical about ESPN insulting Jeremy Lin Christianity which did not occur. But he ignore crap about Jews being the mastermind of terrorist attack.

ESPN Should Have Made Fun of Jeremy Lin’s Christianity

Rush did support Pat Buchanan in 1992.

madman on February 26, 2012 at 7:02 pm

I’m deeply shocked that the famous Navy SEALs who we all hold in the highest respect and admiration, would willingly act out a terrible LIE – that terrorists are NOT Muslims, but Jews. I hope that these SEALs are NOT representative of most SEALs. The good guys are the bad guys, and the bad guys, the good guys? Horrifying. The Koran teaches hate, violence and murder of Jews and all other non-Muslims. The Koran commands Muslims to conquer all nations and subjugate despised non-Muslims under excessively cruel Islamic sharia law where defenseless non-Muslims have no human rights. This is NOT considered a problem?

Since 9/11, there have been over 18,000 terrorist attacks by Muslims. NONE by Jews or people of other religions.

Linda Rivera on February 26, 2012 at 7:13 pm

See, what people like Micha, etc. need to learn is that there are two types of courage: physical and moral. One is quite common, and we read about it all the time—physical courage. One is quite rare—moral.

Billy Mitchell’s crusade for air power was an example of moral courage. Phillip Semmelweis’ work on childbirth fever—moral courage. Moral courage is VERY rare. See Mark Twain on the subject.

Our SEALS have physical courage, no doubt. But their moral courage is that of a pussy.

Occam's Tool on February 26, 2012 at 10:30 pm

Right, Skunky. And these bozos are spewing their anti-Semitism throughout society, wherever they go. It would be bad enough if it was just in this column. But they go throughout our dumbed-down society — getting us to pay for their food stamps, their over-extended mortgages, welfare fraud, and who knows what else. Andeven many intelligent people have very poor judgment on questions like this, because emotion trumps intelligence almost every time.

Little Al on February 26, 2012 at 10:39 pm

This is hilarious… The whole movie is an anti Semitic Goebbels propaganda film because of a half second line of “But your Jewish!” Jesus Christ on roller skates!!!!! The world as we know it is gonna end. Chill people.. Chill… It’s a MOVIE for one, and the real bad guy in the movie is a Chechen Jihadi who grew up with the financier. Friendships before they both found themselves on the wrong end of a SEALs M4. Tough…

Spence on February 27, 2012 at 1:32 am

sounds like another in a long line of movies that misdirect attention away from the elephant terrorists in the room…..so sad, america is going down the tubes in a hurry.

shmujew on February 27, 2012 at 8:55 am

I guess the producer didn’t want to offend the Muslims so he threw the Jews under the bus. This southern Christian conservative will stand with Israel whatever the hazard.

Ken on February 27, 2012 at 10:22 am

Debbie I sorry to say that this doesn’t suprise me. Hollywood would never make a movie in this day and age where the terrorist monsters are Muslims. It always will be white rightwing Christians or those “evil” Jewish people. Sadly they used the real SEALs to make this movie. Halfwits like BEN, PETE and SCOTT will go see it and further their stupid reasoning about how good it will be. It is also sad that Rush gave it a good review. Apparently he thinks that it is ok for the movie’s premise to be so bass ackwards. Skunky I couldn’t agree with you more about that idiot Michael Medved. I used to listen to him when he subbed for Rush but he has become a total joke just like that other Rush sub Vannity. Both of these fakes make me sick. Debbie keep up the good work screening these movies. People at my job are already asking me have I seen this fap. I guess that I’ll just read the Tom Clancy book of the same title and save my 8 bucks.

No matter what background the terrorist was in this movie, someone would be upset. Additionally, since when are all terrorists Muslim? Timothy McVeigh anyone?

I guess this means Adam Sandler is a traitor because he depicted Hanukkah poorly in Eight Crazy Nights.

    You really are “Level Headed” and thanks for proving my point, either you’re being stupid or trying so hard to be stupid?

    Since you bought up Timothy McVeigh, I also assume you think the SOB was a christian, right? In fact the opposite of that is true, McVeigh was a “SECULAR” person who could careless for religion and/or spirituality. And most terrorist attacks are committed by “MUSLIMS”, that is a PROVEN FACT! WAKE. THE. HELL. UP buster and get you’re head out of the sand.

      Sean, let me add this to dope slap “Cone-headed”…

      Cone-headed. Please do some homework and look into the IRANIAN angle of the Oklahoma Bombings.

      Namely Hussein al-Husseini. Is that name Moooooslim enough for you? Oh and for added terror…the terrorist is free, homeless and drinking up a storm in Massachusetts.

      It’s ALL about Islam. Wake up!

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

Thank you — and Pamela Geller — for the tip off.

Thanks for pointing that out Debbie, it does ruin the whole movie for me also. I did not see it this weekend. I plan not to be exposed to its visuals/audios in the future.

This is the lame Hollywood liberal-left and their best friends the Obama p.c. re-election culture demonstrating Jewish equivalence. They wouldn’t want to ruffle too many muslim feathers, being honest would be too dangerous… The other side of the coin is that a whole bunch of left-wing Jews whose loyalty to the Democratic Party, Obama and company especially, directly and indirectly promote and support jihadi-drug-terrorism all the time. Drugs and pali-jihadi support and money is perversely endemic in the Democratic Party, especially the Obama-Clinton branch. My bet is the Seals who participated might have had misgivings about the plot until they thought about what I’ve just suggested. Fyi, I’m Jewish. Dump the Democrats in 2012!

Oh my goodness! What is wrong with this website??? It’s a movie for crying out loud! All of these radical thoughts do make for a good laugh though.

Anyone pick up on the “Jews killed Christ” scene of the movie? Let me quote a commenter from Ricochet:

I think the clincher is the scene in which the CIA agent is tortured. First, her hands are taped to a table from which she hangs with arms spread. Then a thug drills holes in her hands with a power drill. Later we see that she also has stigmata on her feet. I got the Christ imagery, but until I read this article I didn’t make the connection that the absent author of her torment was, naturally, a Jew. What could be more blatant than that?


This is not only outrageous, it’s amazing that hardly anyone is discussing it. A patriotic movie about valiant men is being used to convey the message that conniving Jews are the real enemies, not Islamists.

This is my letter to Ms. Greenberg:

I can’t for the life of me understand why the US would promote such a blatantly anti-Semitic film, and why you haven’t responded to Ms Schlussel’s inquiry. This film is filled with lies and distortions, and does not deserve to be shown to the American public. I, along with the more than 3000 people of all faiths in our Facebook group, would like a response to Ms Schlussel’s letter. By not responding, you are essentially saying you agree with this horrendous attempt at vilifying the Jewish people.

I am hoping for an explanation as to why this film was made, and why the Jews are made out to be enemies of the United States in it? That is of course, ridiculous in the extreme, and constitutes a serious libel against the Jewish people.

I will wait a day or two to give you time to properly respond, but if I don’t receive a response to this letter, I will distribute it to the thousands of people who read what I write, and I will take this up in the media.

With great disappointment,
Larry Moskowitz

Simple question:

How many of you people actually *watched* the movie?

The Jewish character, Cristos, is an arms dealer. His only involvement in the terrorist acts depicted in the film is as a by-product of his trade. His involvment with the acutal terrorist — the MUSLIM, the one we see trying to kill SEALs and infiltrate suicide bombers into the US — is a result of his childhood friendship with the man, who is a Muslim convert, and was involved according to the story in the Beslan massacre.

In the entire film, the only mention of Cristos’ faith comes when he is taken into custody by the SEALs, and Senior Chief mentions it and asks him, basically “WTF are you thinking?” This is a guy who worships only money. This is also a guy who is selling guns and explosives to the unsavory people. Like his crazy-convert boyhood friend. If you people are reading some huge anti-Semitic subplot into this movie, you are delusional. Sorry. In the real world, assholes are everywhere.

It seems that the people responsible for allowing this outlandishly slanted
anti-semitic tone to Act Of Valor should be publicly ostracized and if in the military
dishonorably discharged.

Irwin Ruback on February 29, 2012 at 8:49 pm

Here’s a theory: the USA is in fairly steep decline, largely because it doesn’t dare respond to international Islamic assertiveness effectively or effectually.Also, individual Americans know what the penalties are for offending Islamists with the truth.
The problem therefore arises of whom to blame for America’s woes without the threat of retribution.
That’s easily solved: the Jews won’t issue fatwas; they won’t blow up shopping malls or airliners etc., so put them in the frame and divert your people’s anger away from the real foe whom you cannot vanquish, namely, Islam.
Your problem is, however, that it won’t solve your problem with Islam.

I can’t believe Americans think like this.

No, I take that back. I can’t believe any human being thinks like this. The line of reasoning that went into writing this article is so far removed from anything that would go through the brain of a sane human being that it’s frankly worrying.

Congratulations, Debbie, you’ve made me legitimately worry for the future of the human race.

Alex on March 3, 2012 at 10:56 am

Normally, I’m right with you on your reviews, but seriously- the actual terrorist is a MUSLIM CHECHEN SEPARATIST, ashamed of his Jewish past- so much so that he can’t stand the sound of his own name. Did you forget the Beslan school hostage crisis? 384 people, mostly young children killed, hundreds more injured or missing by the separatist movement. His main complaint against America? We’re occupying MUSLIM nations and helping Russia put down the Chechens.

Is this a fucking joke? Its a God damn movie you fucking chode. So what if the bad guy in the movies Jewish, its a movie! Just accept it for what it is, a movie. Don’t throw a fucking fit, its not a big deal, stop looking for problems ass clown.

tanner on March 11, 2012 at 1:52 am

Oh my, a single movie where the enemy is a Jew and not a German, Muslim or an “extremist” Christian. How’s it feel to be on the receiving end for once?

I like the photos above. Nothing like linking any type of criticism (real, implied or fictional) with NAZI imagery for added effect..and of course, never forget to slap on the Anti-semite label for good measure.

Oh, nice touch on calling your fellow Jew a “Kapo”. I wonder where you were when Jonathan Pollard sold out the USA to Israel. I’m going to guess that you’re one of the supporters asking for his release.

Jon on March 11, 2012 at 6:33 pm

Most of the posts here prove that many of you Americans have been brainwashed – rendering you having tunnel vision on what’s going on in the world. Keep a freaking open mind. Just because mainstream media tells you that this particular faction is Muslim extremists doesn’t mean that they actually are. What if these are people of another faction posing as Islamists? Never trust your mainstream media because everything handed to you are what THEY want you to see and memorize – to cover the actual agenda. Hence the use of the word “Programming”. SO in order to get the truth – YOU FIND YOUR SOURCES ELSEWHERE as well.
On this particular movie, it’s portraying to you American audiences that Filipino Muslims as Jihadists and among the next target in US Government’s “War on Terrorism”. NOW I wouldn’t be surprised to see an American or NATO campaign over Mindanao in the not-so-distant future. AS THIS MOVIE IS FLAT-OUT PROPAGANDA. As some of you don’t know, Mindanao has untapped mineral and OIL resources and I’m sure the corporate oligarchs in America are sniffing it out – wanting to have the large piece of the pie – as they are doing in the Middle East. Because that is the TRUE PRIMARY FOREIGN POLICY OF the AMERICAN GOVT – Gain global economic advantage by securing other countries’ resources. And most of you are blinded into thinking that your military servicemen are dying for your country? Hell no. They are dying for your government’s corporate interest. Say whatever you want. But consider what I’ve told you.

Veritas on March 17, 2012 at 2:56 am

Debbie, I guess you would have been OK with the stereotypical Muslim terrorist and assorted brown people portrayed in the movie if only the Jew rat had been removed from the script. The prime motive for the billionaire Jew financing the Muslim terrorist was $$$, go figure.

It’s a movie. STFU
