Ich bin ein Municher!

Or is that Münchener? Anyway I went to see Munich tonight with a friend. There has been a lot of criticism of the film from zionists and from Arabs. Then Abe Foxman gave the movie the kiss of death by praising it. Sure enough I think the zionists do get better treatment by the film than the Palestinians do. The Angry Arab News Service complained that every Arab had a gun in the film. Not so. The first Palestinian to get killed was a genteel Renaissance man. The Palestinians weren't shown in a very favourable light though. The Israelis were shown agonising about their murderous activities and there were a good few sloganised zionist takes chucked around - "2,000 years of suffering", "Jews are better", "we need a home".

Hey! They never said they'd made the desert green again. That Spielberg! Such a self-hater.
