Jewish education is all about profanity, bestiality, and dishonesty–if George Soros, Samuel L. Jackson, and Sarah Silverman are to be believed.
The so-called “Jewish Council for Education and Research,” in reality a super PAC backed by Soros’s son Alexander, has produced a new anti-Romney ad in which Jackson exhorts a family to “Wake the F— Up!” and work for President Barack Obama’s re-election. Earlier this year, the Jewish Council released an ad in which Silverman simulates sex with a dog to mock Jewish GOP donor Sheldon Adelson.
There is nothing “Jewish” at all about these ads–far from it. Yet Alexander Soros–with money, no doubt, from Soros père–uses the “Jewish” label to give the imprimatur of respectability to these profane and profoundly unfunny ads.
Not even the smug liberalism which emanates from some corners of the Jewish institutional world would stoop as low as Soros. He has defamed the enterprise of Jewish education and the Jewish community. In any other context–i.e. if a Jew were not involved–the abuse of the “Jewish” label would be considered antisemitic.
In addition to profound bigotry, what the “Jewish Council” ads suggest is the desperation of Obama supporters in Washington and Hollywood. The Jackson ad suggests that Democrats fear and know that their supporters are less motivated to vote today than in 2008. It repeats several outright lies about Romney–i.e. that he does not believe in any kind of safety net–and in the end resorts to profanity, not only from Jackson but from a child.
The irony of a self-described “Jewish” organization releasing such an ad during the Jewish high holidays and at a time of profound threats to Israel and to Jews in Europe suggests an insensitivity bordering on malice.
Read the whole thing. I won’t post the disgusting ad, but you can find a link to it at the link in this post.
(For Zion)Next time Habima Theater will be overcrowded by Israelis running for an underground bomb shelter, our horrible celebrities will remain silent, enjoying the prime time Jewish bloodbath. In Israel, no Hollywood happy ending is allowed. There are only images of hatred and the soundtrack of anti-Semitism.(Details)
If these celebrities were serious they would apologize for their public relations recently for the Assad regime. They would start out fresh and call out the abuses of power in Jordan and other Arab nations. They would question why Kerry, Pelosi in a stupid looking burqa and most recently Dennis J. Kucinich were sent to Syria as diplomats when they were warned. They did it to spit in the face of those of us who knew better. They did it for political gain and the blood of Syrians suffer because of their arrogant actions
yes… humor always makes fun of someone, and I don’t need to tell a joke to find the humor in Costanza demanding peace with people who want to kill you. Does anyone remember the episode where George gives the security guard a rocking chair?
The successful Hollywood filmmakers arrived in Israel to receive a
million-dollar award from Tel Aviv University.
While on a visit to Israel to collect a million-dollar award from Tel
Aviv University, American filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen said that they
did not believe that boycotting Israel would solve political problems.
The production-direction team responsible for a string of successful
Hollywood dramas in the last two decades, from The Big Lebowski to
Miller’s Crossing, came to the country to receive the Dan David prize
for their creative contribution to filmmaking.

Responding to a question about musicians and film makers who boycott the
State of Israel because of its policies and actions, screenwriter and
director Ethan Coen said, “People respond to real problems from the
heart, and they think that’s the right thing to do. We don’t agree with
that opinion, that that’s how to deal with these problems.”
The brothers’ Jewish heritage is on display in a number of their films,
most obviously in ‘A Serious Man’ – translated into Hebrew as ‘The Good
Jew’. Despite many references to Jewish cultural themes in their movies,
the two deny that their own Jewishness is necessarily connected to their
“There were Jewish characters, but in regards to whether our background
influences our film making… who knows?” says Joel. “We don’t think about
it… There’s no doubt that our Jewish heritage affects how we see things.”
“We grew up in a Jewish community, but we never thought to make a story
that deals with Israel,” Joel continued. “We don’t really know Israel –
we write American stories. That’s what we know.”
“We’ve wanted to come here for a long time, but life got in the way,”
Joel explains. “We’re very happy for this opportunity. We’ll spend a few
days at Tel Aviv University.”
The Coen Brothers were nominated for twelve Academy Awards in the last
year alone for their most movie ‘True Grit’. The film follows a decade
of successes that include ‘No Country for Old Men’, ‘A Serious Man’, and
‘O Brother, Where Art Thou?’
The other prize winners for 2011 were University of California at San
Francisco Professor Cynthia Kenyon and Harvard Medical School Professor
Gary Ruvkun for their work in gerontology and Stanford University
