    .
    I recently started a thread about the Harvey Weinstein scandal:

    Fox News: "Harvey Weinstein is an embarrassment for Jews"


    http://www.politicalforum.com/index...einstein-is-an-embarrassment-for-jews.517188/

    Yesterday the Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported that another jewish Hollywood big shot, James Toback, is also accused of sexual harassment, just like Weinstein:
    https://www.haaretz.com/us-news/1.818581

    [​IMG]

    I have the following questions for my fellow PF members:

    1. Do you think that Toback is guilty?

    2. How do you think that this will affect the jewish community?

    As always, all opinions are welcome.

    I'd love it if you took a DNA test and found out you were 98% Jewish.

    I'm sorry to disappoint you, buddy, but I don't have any jewish blood. Now, what are your thoughts on the thread's topic?

    You have no way to know what your ancestry is and your OP is bigoted crap.

    Toback has had another 100+ women make complaints. Whoever he is, he's toast.

    Do you seriously think that? Do you think that every person in the world is a rootless cosmopolitan who doesn't know anything about his origin, or who his ancestors were?
    Are you saying that the jewish journalists at Haaretz are bigots? Oy vey.

    My thoughts are that this creep's actions are far more important than his ethnicity.

    I respect your opinion, but please keep in mind that it was the Israeli newspaper Haaretz that mentioned this movie director's jewish origin in the headline. I simply copied and pasted the headline from the article into my thread, in accordance with PF's rules.

    Toback stories have been floating around for decades in Hollywood.

    This isn't news.

    That nice however his being a Jew or not a Jew have no connections to his guilt or innocents of such misdeeds that I can see so other then a bigotry attempt to launch an irrational attack on a whole subset of the world population by using someone not yet proven sexual misdeeds and IDing him as a Jew in the title of the thread there seem no other reason to do so,

    I wonder why in hell they do that. When your average 'white' person is indicted thusly, they're not identified by western press as anglo-irish, or scots-french.

    Jewish life in diaspora is of interest to Jews, both in Israel and abroad, so I guess that's why Ha'aretz - an Israeli newspaper - identifies Toback as a Jew.

    I wonder though why would a far right white supremacist read Ha'aretz, it's a rag at the extreme far left end of the extreme far left (there are some decent journalists there, but they have no say in redacting the English edition).

    Hmm .. well there you go. Still seems odd to specify the particulars of ethnicity.

    Could that be because his ethnicity is irrelevant.

    The Las Vegas shooter was white. Do you think this reflects on white people? He was an American. Do you think this reflects on Americans?

    Most of us seems to be saying that your copying and pasting of this news and then starting a thread centering around a man charge with sexual misdeed religion faith seems a bigotry act on it face no matter what or why the headline writers of a newspaper have his faith in their headline as that does not give you a free license to launch a bigotry attack here on the man religion by way of his charge personal misdeeds

    I didn't knew any of the two were Jewish, to be frank. Even with the "Weinstein" name, as jews are born from Jewish women, not men, like a name. Maybe this one carries more "stereotypical jewish features", thought.

    1. Is he guilty? Wait a minute here - a movie guy trying to sleep with young, naive starlets? Impossible! Never happened before - I am shocked! With outrage!!!

    2. The Jewish community is used to sexual deviation from their high-profile peers, like Polansky, Allen (that I both admire as filmakers, BTW) etc. Most porn actors at some time were Jews. IMO, it is magnified because of the sheer numbers of jews in very visible, mediatic industries rather than some genetic depravation.

    We in Quebec recently have this kind of "crisis" with a real homegrown, ceinture-flechée french catholic Quebecois, Gilbert Rozon.

    Uhm, no, I don't have any "pork blood" flowing in my veins because I'm a human. It seems stupid to have to point it out, but I guess when you're dealing with PF's pro-jewish posters, you have to get used to certain things.
    Are you talking about me? I'm not a "far right white supremacist". You don't know anything about me.

    When the Weinstein scandal broke, lots of well-known media outlets were concerned that people might associate Weinstein's perverted behavior with his jewishness. Here's an article that was published in the well-known jewish media outlet Tablet Magazine:
    http://www.tabletmag.com/scroll/246724/the-specifically-jewy-perviness-of-harvey-weinstein

    And here's Huffington Post's nervous and angry reply:

    No, There’s Nothing ‘Jewy’ About Harvey Weinstein’s Predatory Behavior

    I think it's bizarre that both Toback and Weinstein made women watch them masturbate. Is this disgusting fetish common in Hollyweird?

    Because he is Jewish. And to Israeli's... his Jewish ethnicity matters.

    Being a jerk has nothing to do with Jewish. If you looked hard enough you'd find some Christians, even some Buddhist.

    I think it's interesting that most of Hollywood's jewish filmmakers (Steven Spielberg, Roman Polanski, Woody Allen, etc.) are either mediocre or completely talentless. The best filmmakers are either white men, like George Lucas, the Wachowskis and James Cameron, or Indian, like M. Night Shyamalan.
