Spielberg Film a Surprise to Mossad
Hat tip to Rory. Steven Spielberg appears to be more liberal than Jewish with his latest film debacle about the revenge taken against members of Black September following the Munich massacre. Common sense would lead a person to research the script via those involved. According to this article, neither members of Mossad nor the Israeli government even knew such a film was being made. But that's not all. Guess what the film is based on?
Entertainment reports say the film, provisionally titled "Vengeance " and due to reach cinemas in December, is based on a book of the same name whose account of one of the most painful chapters in Jewish history has been widely discredited.
Widely discredited?! Lovely. That's what he wants to use as his basis for the film? Of course this doesn't necessarily mean it's going to be bad, does it?
In the preface to "Vengeance," author George Jonas declares himself a supporter of Israel. But according to at least one member of Spielberg's cast, Daniel Craig, the screenplay is a less-than-flattering portrayal of Israeli tactics.
"It's about how vengeance doesn't ... work -- blood breeds blood," Craig told entertainment magazine Empire.
This has stink on it up one side and down the other.
