    See, for example, the party scene in "Manhattan" and the discussion of Skokie. Or his "Anything Else." Certainly his character wrestles with conversion in "Hannah and Her Sisters"--and balks at the white bread and the mayo. Not only is he proudly Jewish, for a while he was even an icon, sort of Steve Guttenberg w/ glasses. Married Jewish first time, regrettably married out second time, but many are able to compartmentalize. Nor have I heard of him saying anything about Israel. Some of his comedy pokes fun at Jewish culture--as does Jackie Mason's, whom #8 sees as pro-Jewish. He's a badchan. Might as well call Upton Sinclair anti-American. Recalls that rumor about Danny Kaye's marriage. The innuendo that Allen's anti-Jewish itself is anti-Jewish.
