Hollywood's Champion of Semitism (and Americanism)

Producer and entertainment financier Haim Saban has pronounced director Oliver Stone anti-Semitic and anti-American because Stone's treatment of Hitler in Stone's forthcoming Showtime series The Secret History of America is not totally condemnatory.

It seems to be a coincidence that the New Yorker magazine just last month fielded a long, detailed, and thoroughly researched profile of this very same Haim Saban, born a poor Jewish boy in Egypt some sixty-odd years ago.

He's come a long way. Those with a (morbid) curiosity as to what empowers a paragon of morality such as Saban to declare that Stone should be silenced will find the linked article very interesting.
