The International Society for Sephardic Progress deplores the new Mel Gibson film, The Passion of the Christ. Shelomo Alfassa, the ISFSP Executive Director stated:

"This movie is a putrid attempt at demonstrating the Christian story of the crucifixion. The movie was not even based on the facts as written in the Christian Bible, but a combination of Christian stories all rolled up into a story of bloodbath and a story of blame."

For an accurate understanding of the anti-Semitism contained in the film, Mr. Alfassa has reviewed the film, it is presented here in its entirety. To open the review, click here.
