Steven Spielberg Defends Putting Palestinian Side of the Story in 'Munich'
Jewish Spielberg insists the film is an unbiased portrayal of the horrific events and hopes the movie will act as a "prayer for peace" in the troubled Middle Eastern region.
He says, "The Jewish community, have grown very angry at me for allowing the Palestinians simply to have dialogue and for allowing (screenwriter and frequent critic of Israeli policies) Tony Kushner to be the author of that dialogue. Munich never once attacks Israel, and barely criticises Israel's policy of counter-violence against violence. It simply asks a plethora of questions. It's the most questioning story I've ever had the honour to tell. For that, we were accused of the sin of moral equivocation. Which, of course, we didn't intend - and we're not guilty of."
In December, Jewish author Jack Engelhard attacked the film, saying, "Spielberg is no friend of Israel. Spielberg is no friend of truth."
