    Jewish money has been behind many if not most of Hollywoods biggest productions. They gave us Charlton Heston as Moses, George C Scott as Abraham, and Paul Newman as a zionist aboard the Exodus. These were Hollywoods biggest stars at the time, and this is just scratching the surface. This is what money can buy. Israel is not used to Hollywood types going against the pro-Israel flow. It is interesting for its rarity. We had Mel Gibson and now Oliver Stone. Neither one is a true Hollywood insider, but both are huge in that small town. Still, I doubt that they are as disappointing to Israel as is Woody Allen. He made a a bunch of the most wonderful, most memorable movies ever to grace the small screen. His movies were awash with his Jewish heritage, history, and culture (as found in NYC), and yet he never gave a nod to Israel or to Israeli politics, or to Israeli propaganda. Woody Allen had his reasons for the things he did and did not do, same as Gibson and Stone. All should be taken in their complete context and not just as a target in a Jewish smear campaign.
