Spielberg hires top PM advisor to market his new film 'Munich'
Steven Spielberg has hired one of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's top strategists to market his controversial new film about Israel's retaliation for the Palestinian attack on its team at the 1972 Munich Olympics.
Eyal Arad, who helped mastermind the disengagement, said on Sunday he was promoting the film "Munich", where it has already stirred fierce debate.
Avi Dichter, a retired head of the Shin Bet security service who attended a preview in Washington, likened "Munich" to a children's adventure story. "There is no comparison between what you see in the movie and how it works in reality," he said.
I wonder if there might be a comparison between the distorted reality portrayed in the film 'Munich' that Arad is promoting, and the message (read: lie) coined by Arad, that "There is a solution for everyone", whereby the government of Israel gave its word that all of the Jews expelled from their homes during the "Disengagement" would be taken care of without delay and that all was in order for them - which has been shown to be a blatant distortion, over and over again.
Perhaps, Arad's next job will be as the Director of Public Relations for the "Palestinian Authority", as they have a particular interest in Arad's special ability to lie with a straight face, and his willingness to represent any organization or product - so long as the check doesn't bounce.
