Mr. Gibson,

I grew up in the San Fernando Valley, where, for a Jewish child, life was painful. At age seven I was told that I was a heathen who killed Christ. That theme and belief ran rampant throughout the community I lived in, and I endured insults to me and to my family and even physical abuse.
I was told that Jews made their Passover matzo from the blood of Christian children. Anti-semitism ran rampant where I lived.

Even the Pope denied the Jews involvement in the death of Christ as I grew older.

Your movie brought to the surface the hatred and ugliness of those days, and again raised the question of the Jewish betrayal of Christ. This is a painful reminder of the prejudice of some Christians towards the Jewish Community. I found your movie agonizingly and gratuitously violent and without purpose, to be the most complimentary. In light of your recent days, it is obvious you have considerable anti-Semitic feelings, perhaps the purpose behind Passion of the Christ.

Now, you are finally dealing with your addiction, apparently unaware of the pain you have caused thousands of other people. The rest of us, outside of Hollywood, just deal with challenges in life without "appealing to the Jewish community" for help. What makes you feel so entitled? Does your money and fame give you special privilege?

Your behavior, Mr. Malibu, is loathsome and despicable. Shame on you.

I will never see another Mel Gibson film again.

Mr. Gibson, you are now a known alcoholic who has made an illegitiment child. You have acted as if you have all the answers, but you have proven otherwise. Because your atheist father told you what to think shows immaturity on your part. It's time to grow up and express your thoughts and opinions. Jews, like any other person, deserve our
respect. Jews have been blamed by the WASP long enough for their mistakes. The Catholic pope helped the Germans in the gasing of the Jews. So
wipe the blood off of your hands before you worry about anyone else's. If I never see any of your films I will be happy.
