"Munich"--as Brought to You by Abu Spielberg, Minister of Disinformation
When Steven Spielberg began filming "Munich" in June 2004, he set the tone for his fictional movie about Israeli agents who hunted down the Palestinian terrorists responsible for the slaughter of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics.
Spielberg abruptly stopped filming and closed up shop. Why? Because the 2004 Summer Games were happening in August, and Steven Spielberg didn't want to upset the terrorists.
That's what "Munich" is about--not upsetting the terrorists. And rolling over while they attack and kill us. In Steven Spielberg's world, not going after terrorists brings peace. In the real world, not going after them brings more bloodshed.
When Spielberg began filming in 2004, it was well known that his film was based on George Jonas' "Vengeance"--a book discredited as bunk by both Israeli Mossad agents and Palestinians with actual knowledge of the events depicted. So Spielberg claimed the movie was not based on "Vengeance." If it's not based on the book, then why do the credits of this film say it is? Spielberg lied.
But not as much as he and admittedly anti-Israel scriptwriter Tony Kushner lied in this two-and-a-half-hour plus celluloid fairy tale. Like the book on which it's based, "Munich" is long, boring, and filled with fakery.
