'Munich' reminds me of a line that George Carlin used to use in his comedy routine and went roughly like this:"Why do we call Israeli
terrorists commandos, and we call Palestinian commandos terrorists?" That line never got a laugh the two times I saw him use it with a live audience. The thrust of the Spielberg movie 'Munich' is simple: Israeli killers are conscientious and humane people, while Palestinians are always, no matter what, killers.
But a Spielberg movie about current affairs is like a Thomas Friedman column about Kant. What do you expect. But did you notice how one lone critical opinion of the movie by one Israeli diplomat, which only mildly criticized the movie, got so much press in the US? It was needed; and it even helped to promote the movie to give a "balanced" cast to the narrative, that it of course does not deserve. This one critical opinion reminded me of OReilly; how he every night finds one email from somebody in Montana who tells him that he is too liberal.
