"Reel Bad Arabs: How Hollywood Vilifies a People."

I like to watch old Hollywood movies from the 1930's to 1950's and even back then, Jews were damn near always portrayed as being kindly, benevolent, peace loving people who were picked on by others for the hell of it.

And damn near every Arab/Muslim portrayed in the same is portrayed as some devious, money-grubbing throat slitter...

That's decades and decades of Hollywood brainwashing that has helped bamboozle Americans into thinking Israel and Jews are our friends and Arabs are our sworn enemy, who love to kill for the thrill of killing.

Decades of propaganda that now has the USA fighting wars for Israel disguised as a "War on Terror."
Reel Bad Arabs: How Hollywood Vilifies a People.” a Conversation with Author Jack Shaheen June 22, 2001

“The Arabs] all look alike to me,” quips the American heroine in the 1937 movie “The Sheik Steps Out.”

“All Arabs look alike to me,” echos the protagonist in the 1968 ‘Commando’.

“I can’t tell one [Arab] from another. Wrapped in those bed sheets they all look the same to me,” says the US Ambassador in the 1986 movie, “Hostage”.

Well-known media critic Jack Shaheen writes in his new book, “In Hollywood’s films, they certainly do [look alike].Pause and visualize the reel Arab. What do you see? Black beard, headdress, dark sunglasses. In the background-alimousine, harem maidens, oil wells, camels. Or perhaps he is brandishing an automatic weapon, crazy hate in his eyesand Allah on his lips. Can you see him?”

The image is easy to conjure, according to Shaheen, because the vast majority of Hollywood features portray Arabs inthis stereotypical way. And such relentless stereotyping is not without real world consequence. When the OklahomaCity federal building was bombed in 1995, Arab-Americans were the first to be blamed-–Rupert Murdoch’s U.S. papersheadlined: “In the name of Islam” over a picture of a dead child. The Council on Arab-Islamic Relations reportedmore than 300 hate crimes against Arabs and Muslims in America. Mosques were trashed, community members receivedbomb threats, children were harassed at school.

What Do Knowledgeable Jews Say?

How about going to top Jews in the media themselves and see what they say? Take Joel Stein, for example, columnist for the Los Angeles Times newspaper and regular contributor to Time magazine. In his column in the LA Times (Dec. 19, 2008), Stein says that Americans who think the Jews do not control Hollywood and the media are just plain “dumb.”

“Jews totally run Hollywood.” Stein proudly admits. He then goes on to provide a long, long list of Hollywood/media chieftains-all Jews!-to prove his point. On his list: Fox News President Peter Chernin; Paramount Pictures Chairman Brad Grey; Walt Disney CEO Robert Igor; Sony Pictures Chairman Michael Lynton; Warner Brothers Chairman Barry Meyer; CBS CEO Leslie Moonves; MGM Chairman Harry Sloan; and NBC/Universal Studios CEO Jeff Zucker.

That’s just the top brass at the studios. Then there are the actors and entertainers – predominantly Jews, from Barbra Streisand and Gwyneth Paltrow, from Adam Sandler to Ben Stiller… Jew, Jew and Jew again. As Stein wryly remarks, even the head of the Actors’ Union, the Screen Actors Guild, Alan Rosenberg, is a Jew.

“The Jews are so dominant,” writes Stein, “I had to scour the trades to come up with six Gentiles in high positions at entertainment companies.” “But lo and behold,” Stein says, “even one of that six, AMC President Charles Collier, turned out to be a Jew!”

“As a proud Jew,” says Joel Stein, “I want America to know of our accomplishment. Yes, we control Hollywood.”
Decades of overt and subliminal Zionist brainwashing which paid off handsomely for Israel after the 9/11 false-flag attacks.

Some police show I channel flipped thru has a female Israeli detective; "Medium" recently had an episode where there was a female child rape victim named something like Silverstein; Northern Exposure had some episode on a NY'er complaining there weren't enough Jews in Alaska; a public service announcement on bullying shows a big nosed dark haired kid with a "Jewfro" getting kicked around by the white blond jock. I don't have time to catalog all of these, nor do I watch much tv, but this stuff gets slipped in a lot, and it's always very subtle. As for Arabs, I cannot think of any shows in recent memory (or ever) when they were portrayed in a good light.

Either that, or some subtle one-line reference to all the suffering the Chosen have had to endure, or the Holocaust™ is brought up in a quick one-liner, "If we don't stop this now, it could become like the Holocaust™...blah, blah, blah.

It's a steady drip-drip-drip onto Americans foreheads and into their brains, like some Chinese water torture.
