Steven Spielberg Deserves Censure For His Movie, Munich

The producer Steven Spielberg has delivered a contemptable product in his movie Munich and it should be boycotted by all those who support the U.S. and Israel in their War On Terror.

In his turn-the-cheek liberalism, which is such a frequent result of Hollywood and its lack of moral values, opposition to terrorism and appropriate revenge for terrorist acts, is consistently denigrated.

The result is to leave the field clear for more terrorist attacks and the destruction of the democratic states and all they value. In the end, we can no more abide Spielberg than the British could abide Chamberlain or the French Laval.

With Spielbergs view prevailing, the Nazies would have won World War II and the Islamic fascists will win this struggle. It is the people like Spielberg who would not resist Hitler, Stalin and Osama bin Laden that allowed these monsters to get away with their murders. It took the Churchills and de Gaulles, and the millions who fought with them, and Franklin D. Roosevelt, to stop them.

In addition, the Spielberg film is poorly based on one discredited book and may not be very consistent with the facts in the struggle growing out of the massacre of 11 Jewish athletics at the Munich Olympics.

However, when Israel did retaliate for the murders, it was justified in doing so, and the U.S. response to 9-11 is justified as well. Spielberg is trying to sap that vitality. His movie sides with the enemies of civilization, is a cravenly appeasionist product and deserves retaliation in the form of a boycott.

You've really gone off the deep end. I'm sorry but you've finally lost me as a reader.

It's a movie, one told from a pro-Israel point of view, albeit the liberal pro-Israel point of view. Censure? You're out of your mind.

Try visiting Israel and meeting a broad spectrum of Israelis. American Jewish politics are FAR more extreme and damaging.

You are spot on. It worries me to know that so many people today get their information about world events from movies and television shows. Spielberg is very talented but his view of world events is dangerous.

I agree Franky that the degree to which television and movies is the main source of information is troubling. However, I dare say that Reich's rambling gives alternative forums, like the internet, less credibility. All may say what they see fit. But honestly, "Spielberg and his kind" are not to blame for bin Laden or Stalin. The lazy middle class who do nothing are to blame, not the persons who provide enough criticism to keep those in power on their toes. I assume that you would simply prefer the story of Israel's "counterterrorists" never be told because it makes Israel look bad. I am certainly not anti-Israel, but I don't believe that any government or people is above the courts, whether it is that of international law or public opinions. And one last item: you make it sound as though "liberals" would prefer to have no law enforcement or justice system. The reality is that all people want a system that works. So perhaps when the government is horrible at its job and fails to stop bin Laden, then we need to seek another way. And when Israel continually abuses Palestinians' rights (not all Palestinians are terrorists--would you have liked to have your house bulldozed because of Abu Ghraib?) I think people need to know about it. Perhaps even through a movie.
