In Vino Veritas: Did Mel Gibson Curse the Jews?

In view of the Biblically correct contents of the celebrated movie “The Passion” by director and producer Mel Gibson, and the violent reaction against the film by organized Jewry, there has been considerable speculation whether or not Mel Gibson is a closet anti-Semite. Well, an interesting incident has occurred which surprisingly adds fuel to a long simmering fire. An article on the TMZ web site states: “TMZ has learned that actor and director Mel Gibson went on a rampage when he was arrested Friday on suspicion of drunk driving, hurling religious epithets. TMZ has also learned that the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department had the initial report doctored to keep the real story under wraps.” The TMZ article goes on to repeat alleged anti-Semitic remarks by Gibson including the observation: “The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world.”

Mel Gibson became a major star with a post-Apocalyptic action film “Mad Max.” Shortly after that, Gibson was given roles in the series of “Lethal Weapon” movies and a long list of other successful films. Gibson is a conservative devout Christian and it seems likely the Jewish Hollywood establishment did not feel “comfortable” around him. Several years ago it was revealed that Mel Gibson’s dad did not believe in the Holocaust, which must have caused even more gnashing of kosher teeth over Mel Gibson and his movie career. Among Gibson’s most impressive films are The Passion of the Christ, Braveheart, The Patriot and We Were Soldiers.

Hollywood Jews are not comfortable when it comes to films about patriotism or the suffering inflicted on Christ. While the Jews did not publicly complain about the Patriot, Braveheart and We Were Soldiers, they broke their silence when Gibson produced “The Passion of the Christ.” The endless public Yiddish kvetching over the film only seemed to draw more people to see it.

Other major news sources have carried the drunk-driving story without the alleged anti-Jewish remarks. There is a slight chance that certain Jews, still angry over “The Passion of the Christ,” have embellished the story of Gibson’s alleged drunk driving incident adding anti-Jewish remarks in an attempt to end his career. It has been suggested that Gibson would not make remarks that radical if his blood alcohol level were only 0.12 percent.

Gibson issued an apology for remarks he made to police admitting that he had been belligerent. Even if Gibson did rant about the Jews, this incident isn’t necessarily the end of the world for Gibson, who is in fact one of the world’s richest men. Other famous Hollywood stars who have launched public tirades against the Jews–probably when they were drunk or stoned–and yet gotten away with it, include Marlon Brando, Robert Mitchum and Andy Garcia.

Gibson is in a position to finance, produce and direct his own films. The Jews tried to stop his movie “The Passion of the Christ” and that effort backfired. Gibson can continue to make films on his own. The 50 year old actor should have a long career ahead of him, but it seems likely most -if not all- Hollywood production companies will launch a stealth boycott against him (if they have not already done so).
