Otto Preminger’s film, Exodus, has awaken a huge sympathy in the Jewish State. On the contrary, Munich, by Steven Spielberg, undermines Israel’s moral justification to implement harsh measures aimed at defending its people from murderers. Like Preminger, Spielberg is a Jewish and he is really admired thanks to his film Schindler’s List. However, this brave Jew film maker has made a movie based on the book of a discredited author, who has given a bad image of the Mossad. Even worse, the script was adapted by Tony Kushner, a Jew who had vilified Israel and stated that the creation of the Jew State was a “mistake” and a “historical and moral misfortune”.
What was the filmmaker’s goal when he gave the script to such a person? What can lead an honest Jew to say that there is a moral equivalence between the Mossad and the criminal terrorists? In a certain way, Spielberg should not be blamed, but the Israeli leaders who, after Oslo, presented Arafat as an interlocutor for the attainment of peace and asked the Jews in the Diaspora not to support Israel for doing it would be “counterproductive”. This created the international image of an aggressive Israel, a tendency strengthened by the hate the Israeli left feels for itself, something quite evident in the editorial pages of the journal Ha’aretz. Such pages, spread in English, has a devastating impact on the world.
In this era, Jews like Kushner, seen as marginal in the past, are considered repectable persons now. Today, anti-Zionist Jews are everywhere. The most recent conference of the Limmud in England evidenced it. The Jewish Diaspora has to eliminate that internal enemy.
