(CNSNews.com) - Actor and director Mel Gibson, arrested for drunken driving in Malibu on Friday, apologized over the weekend for the ugly things he said about Jews when police stopped him.
But his apology has not convinced the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which three years ago warned that Gibson was "seriously infected" with anti-Semitic views.
In a statement issued on Saturday, Gibson apologized for saying "despicable things" during his arrest that he "does not believe to be true."
According to press reports, Gibson was abusive to the arresting officer, telling him that "Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world," and asking the officer is he was a (bleeping) Jew.
Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, called Gibson's apology "unremorseful and insufficient. It's not a proper apology because it does not go to the essence of his bigotry and his anti-Semitism."
If only Mel understood the rules of anti-semitism, he wouldn't be in so much hot water. To avoid future controversy, he should consider doing the following:
-Use code words like "neocon" and "zionist" instead of referring to "Jews"
-Convert to Islam
-Become a French citizen
-Start hanging around with Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton
-Refrain from discussing Jews unless Cindy Sheehan is present
-Get a job at the U.N.
-Always be sure to mention the Palestinians and their "plight" when ranting about Jews
If he follows the suggestions above, accusations of anti-semitism will be few and far between.
If those suggestions are too much effort, he can always give a few million dollars to Moveon.org. Then he'll have a free pass to blame the Jews for anything he wants.
