CHRIS AND THE JEWS: Allow me to quote from Christopher Hitchens' last Vanity Fair piece regarding Mel Gibson's movie. Sit tight.

If Christian orthodoxy is valid, then Judaism is futile: A pointless hanging-about for the arrival of the Messiah, who has already shown up. "Why not just admit this, instead of whining with Abe Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League about negative stereotypes and all the rest of the self-pitying babble. If the Jewish leadership had any guts, it would turn on those who taunt it with 'Christ-killing' and say, 'Yeah, all right, since you keep mentioning it, we did you a favor. Judas, too. Where would your faith be without us?'
Sorry to say, that advice would be rather unappealing to Jews I suppose.
