The Simon Wiesenthal Center is the premiere Jewish organization in America. And every year, they put out a list of the . And believe it or not, Mel Gibson didn’t make it. Finally some good news for Mel!
Mel Gibson’s anti-Semitic tirade during his 2006 DUI arrest is legendary. But he wisely refrained from targeting Jews this year, when he completely melted down in those phone conversations with girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.
Now Oksana did claim that Mel told her, quote, “I want Jew blood on my hands” an alleged reference to sleazy TMZ boss Harvey Levin. But nobody . . including Harvey . . . believed it.
Honors for the most anti-Semitic comment of the year went to former White House correspondent Helen Thomas, who said, quote, “Jews should get the hell out of Palestine. They should go home to Germany, Poland, America and everywhere else.”Oliver Stone came in second, with a pair of comments he made about Adolf Hitler.
Others that made the list: Malaysian premier Mahathir Mohammed, German Central Bank exec Thilo Sarrazin, and ex-CNN loudmouth Rick Sanchez — the list is anchored not by a person, but by social networks like Facebook, Yahoo! Finance message boards and Twitter.
