The article, “Scarlett Johansson controversy shows Hollywood’s fading Zionism,” written by Max Blumenthal, uses stereotyping to make points, while at the same time, referring to liberals who are pro-Israel as PEP (Progressives except for Palestine). Blumenthal’s disrespect for women in general, and Jewish women in particular is shameful. Of Barbra Streisand he writes:
In another part of the article, Blumenthal’s writes:
To clarify: I don’t usually write postings defending movie stars simply because too many times I don’t agree with their lifestyles, but as a Christian I understand that everyone is created in the image of God. In our denomination, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), we are certainly expected to respect that image in everyone. We particularly lift up women and their rights. The IPMN has for a long time used other’s links to harass Scarlett Johansson. Their meanness is unacceptable. The article I am complaining about attacks persons in a way that is far deeper than attacking their actions. Whether one agrees with Scarlett Johansson or not, she should be treated as one who bears the image of God. And there isn’t any reason at all for Barbra Streisand to be attacked. Hopefully it is not a sin to be Jewish and/or a Zionist.
