Joshua Hammerman, a rabbi writing for the Times of Israel suggests a Joscars category for film awards. “The criteria for a Jos-car nomination is simple: the Jewish aspect of a film can include Jewish subject matter, Jewish values, or Jewish participation.” Then he admits its not really necessary because “With these criteria, you can find something “Jewish” in almost every film.” So does this mean the Jews control Hollywood?
Every film? Jewish? This brings to mind the classic anti-Semitic claim that “the Jews own Hollywood.” Of course that is ridiculous, but not for the reason you might think. If the claim is that Jews are significantly represented at all levels in the production and dissemination of culture, which includes movies, books, music, drama, journalism, dance, the visual arts and the humanities, my response is “guilty as charged.”
He mocks those involved in less important roles in the film industry.
Incidentally, have you noticed just how many gaffers, grips and best boys are Jewish? Neither have I.
The implication here is that “best boy” might as well be called “best goy”. We get the goy to do all the menial jobs, while we Jews do everything important, haha!
Those who subscribe to grand Jewish conspiracy theories are typically those who have the least familiarity with real live Jews. The ADL’s Global survey of 100 nations discovered that people living in countries with larger Jewish populations are less likely to hold anti-Semitic views than people living in countries with smaller Jewish populations. The same is true of places in America. It’s true with other groups too: familiarity reduces bigotry. In this case, absence makes the heart grow hateful.
Or to put it another way, people in countries without large Jewish populations are most likely to hold anti-Semitic views because Jews have not established a dominating influence in their culture, politics or media and used that influence to pump out philosemitic propaganda and marginalise anyone who challenges their agenda by pointing out the truth. They are able to accurately perceive the facts, free of Semitic filtering.
The rabbi then boasts of how Jewish domination of the instruments of cultural production prevents European patriots achieving their goal of preserving the existence of European peoples.
But I will say this — proudly. The influence of Jewish values, those principles Jews have long held sacred, has been most profound on the American cultural scene.
…These values, which are neither exclusively left nor right, but Jewish through and through, include humility, love and freedom and dignity. They clash markedly against the “values” of the “traditional” anti-Semite, who, as defined by the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, tends to be xenophobic, anti-intellectual, populist, racist, brutish and, if unchecked, ultimately genocidal.
And here’s the rub — the part that drives anti-Semites absolutely bananas. The influence of popular culture, in the US and throughout most of the world, continues to be far, far more pervasive than that of any government or branch of government. When Chief Justice Roberts (who is decidedly not an anti-Semite) wrote about the “undeniable appeal” of arguments of social fairness and equality in the 2015 same-sex marriage case, he was speaking of the undeniable influence of TV programs like “American Family” and current films like “Loving,” whose influence on the culture continue to be profound.
So when anti-Semites say “The Jews control Hollywood,” or “The Jews control the media,” they are really cursing the fact that their agenda can never achieve the ultimate triumph they seek until the instruments of culture are co-opted. And, yes, I can proudly say that Jews are continuing to hold up our end of the bargain, not by owning Hollywood, or by propagating any particular agenda, but by driving haters crazy.
Another story in the Times of Israel tells of how Jewish Hollywood mogul, Arnon Milchan (12 Years a Slave), has been involved in supplying Netanyahu with cigars and Israel with weapons. And some other Hollywood Jews have also apparently been involved in helping Israel over the years.
Peres, who was president at the time, said he recruited Milchan. “Arnon is a special man. It was I who recruited him … when I was at the Ministry of Defense. Arnon was involved in numerous defense-related procurement activities and intelligence operations,” said Peres.
Milchan also said he tried to get other Hollywood figures involved in his clandestine work, notably the late director Sydney Pollack. Pollack was allegedly involved in buying arms and military equipment for Israel during the 1970s and, according to Milchan, knew just what he was getting into. “Pollack knew, but I didn’t want to scare him because he’s American… He could have said ‘no,” Milchan said. “He said ‘no’ many times, but he also said ‘yes’ many times.”
He used Hollywood pull to lure a “US nuclear scientist” to a private meeting. What tribe was this scientist a member of? We can only speculate.
Milchan, who is part-owner of Israel’s Channel 10 television company, also admitted trying to use an unnamed big star to entice a US nuclear scientist to a private meeting in the actor’s house, although the interview didn’t clarify if the rendezvous ever took place. A number of actors feature in the Channel 2 documentary, including Russell Crowe, Ben Affleck and Robert De Niro, who is a personal friend of Milchan’s. De Niro told Dayan that he had heard things about Milchan; however nothing that was ever confirmed. “I wasn’t sure,” he said.
What was the purpose of this meeting with a scientist? No doubt obtaining classified information that would be of benefit to Israel.
Two years ago, authors Meir Doron and Joseph Gelman published a book titled “Confidential: The Life of Secret Agent Turned Hollywood Tycoon Arnon Milchan,” in which they asserted that Milchan was acting for Israel’s now defunct Bureau of Scientific Relations, known as Lekem. The clandestine bureau focused on obtaining information for secret defense programs that reputedly included Israel’s rumored nuclear weapons research and development program. The bureau was disbanded in 1987 after US Navy specialist Jonathan Pollard was caught spying for Israel.
So Milchan was involved with an Israeli agency that inveigled American Jews into committing treason against their “own country”. This is the same guy who produced 12 Years a Slave, a film that pushes the Blame Whitey slave narrative which stigmatizes Europeans and incites African-Americans to hate European-Americans.
