Movie producer Weinstein has suddenly come out in favor of striking back at Jew-haters
, though there's one part that warrants suspicion:
Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein told a packed audience at the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s National Tribute Dinner Tuesday night that the way to combat the new wave of anti-Semitism is to “stand up and kick these guys in the ass,” the Los Angeles Times reported.
“It’s like, here we go again, we’re right back where we were [before the Holocaust],” said the 63-year-old Weinstein after accepting the Wiesenthal Center’s Humanitarian Award. “We just can’t take it anymore [from] these crazy bastards.”
“I think it’s time that we, as Jews, get together with the Muslims who are honorable and peaceful, but we also have to go and protect ourselves,” he said. “There’s a quote from Kurt Vonnegut’s book The Sirens of Titan and it always was the motto of Miramax and now the Weinstein Co. It says, 'Good can triumph over evil if the angels are as organized as the mafia.’”
He may be alluding to "moderate" Muslims, but I still don't see why he has to bring that up. What matters is that Jews who really care must fight back against anti-semites the world over. On which note, he's doing the right thing to bring up this issue. But he shouldn't have to dampen the impact by making moot points.
