Witty Words from Zev Chafets

An excerpt (or is that an outtake?) from his op-ed on Mel Gibson here:-

So, let's certify that Gibson is an anti-Semite, as his critics have charged since he released the film "The Passion of the Christ" in 2004. I personally liked the movie, mostly because it demonstrated, unwittingly I'm sure, that there were no "Palestinians" living in Israel in the time of Jesus. Judge the art, not the artist, I always say.

And Zev, do you know what did exist at the time of Jesus?

and they were all scattered throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria

Now on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus traveled along the border between Samaria and Galilee

Now he had to go through Samaria

Then the church throughout Judea, Galilee and Samaria enjoyed a time of peace.

Now an angel of the Lord said to Philip, "Go south to the road—the desert road—that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza."

Yep, the heartland of the Jewish patrimony - Judea, Samaria and Gaza. And yes, all sources from the New Testament so as Mel and friends can't say I'm just using the Jewish Bible.

and for dessert:-
