For once in his iffy film and stage career, Woody Allen's said something worth listening to
Jewish Hollywood big-shot Woody Allen says there is no difference between being anti-Israel and anti-Semitic.
In an interview with Channel 2 on Monday, 77-year-old Allen told the Israeli news station that political criticism of Israel conceals a deeper hatred, that of the Jewish people. [...]
"Many people disgiuse their negative feelings toward Jews as Anti-Israel criticism, political critism," he said, "when in fact what they really mean is they don't like Jews."
That's exactly the problem. The same argument could be made about Holland, if the Dutch fall victim to any similar sentiments. I'm amazed that after all these years, he's gathered the courage to admit it.
