Foxman meets Spielberg at Munich

The Jerusalem Post reports that the Anti-Defamation League's Abe Foxman has come to Steven Spielberg's defence over his new film Munich which had been accused of drawing a moral equivalence between Israel killing people and Palestinians killing people.
He said the movie, which recounts the murder of 11 Israeli athletes by the Palestinian group Black September at the 1972 Munich Olympics, portrays that tragedy as an act of "brutal terrorism" with no humanizing of the perpetrators.
The article continues
But Foxman - who pointed out that, unlike him, many of the critics hadn't seen the movie - said the Israelis are portrayed in human terms
So that's alright then.
