The Mel Gibson Incident

By Harvey Tobkes

I could never be on any jury regarding Mel Gibson’s guilt or innocence because in his case the apple does not fall far from the tree. His father is a virulent anti-Semite and proclaims the Holocaust never happened. I have a pre-formed opinion in this case and if the choices were…give him the benefit of the doubt because he was drunk, or hang him by the testicles.

Testicles win hands down.

According to a TMZ report, in addition to threatening the arresting deputy and trying to escape, Gibson said, “The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world,” and asked the officer, James Mee, “Are you a Jew?”

Gibson said he is “in the process of understanding where those vicious words came from during that drunken display” and hopes members of the Jewish community, “whom I have personally offended,” will help him in his recovery efforts.

“There is no excuse, nor should there be any tolerance, for anyone who thinks or expresses any kind of anti-Semitic remark,” said the 50-year-old Oscar winner. “Please know from my heart that I am not an anti-Semite. I am not a bigot.”
