Response to Re:
I haven't seen any quotes attributed to Mel himself, that were as anti-Semitic as the ones I referenced from that CAIR speech of Cat's. His dad was a bad egg, in that regard.
I don't think it excuses anti-Semitism by Muslims, which is a virulent, widespread hatred embraced by the clerics and masses alike, because of past anti-Semitism by masses of Christians, or the few embittered drunks, televangelists and Frenchmen who still love Jesus but hate His Jewishness. Ignorance and wrongdoing by one group, does not mean it's A-OK for another to do likewise.
I would have preferred he had turned to Buddhism, too. I happen to know a Greek Orthodox man, who is friends with my wife's family, who was huge fan back in the '70's, and had a mail-correspondence with the then-Greek Orthodox Stevens(not his real, Greek name)...he was crushed, when Stevens went over to the Other Side!
